A five-man sub-committee of the Senate Labor and Public Welfare Committee has been appointed to consider the Ives Bill to outlaw discrimination in employment. At the first meeting of the sub-committee this morning, June 11 was chosen as a tentative date for the first open hearing on the measure.

Members of the sub-committee include Senators Forrest C. Donnell of Missouri, chairman, H. Alexander Smith of New Jersey and Irving M. Ives of New York, all Republicans, and Democratic Senators James E. Murray of Montana and Allen J. Ellender of Louisiana.

The Ives Bill, calling for the creation of a permanent Fair Employment Practices Commission, was introduced in the Senate by Ives and seven other senators, both Republicans and Democrats, and in the House by Mrs. Mary T. Norton, Democrat of New Jersey and James G. Fulton, Republican of Pennsylvania.
