With reference to the more specific questions in regard to the composition and functioning of the Committee, it
was thought that the list included the proper persons. In seeking to reconcile the President1s desire to have Mr. Delano added,
with the general principle which was thought good of not embarrassing the freedom of action of any of his office through having
to report to him through another person, it was thought that the
following suggestion would fill the bill:
Constitute the Cosmittee, as proposed, and then add
that the Chairman of the National Resources Planning Board shall
sit with the Committee, participate in its deliberations, and join
in such recommendations as he say rcish» Under these conditions he
then need feel no hesitation in discussing with the President
privately and personally any problem that may be or will be unler
the consideration of the Committee without feeling that he is going behind his own Committee.
