See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

President Eisenhower’s Committee on Government Contracts reported yesterday that of 104 complaints of discrimination in employment by Federal contractors 37 had been closed through compliance with the Federal regulation which forbids discrimination in such contracts, 13 of the 37 cases having been concerned with direct violations later corrected by contractors.

The report said that the committee had 42 of the 104 complaints still pending and had ruled that it lacked jurisdiction in 25 others. The committee is headed by Vice President Richard M. Nixon.
