Lott, former Department of Justice official, is out for blood over block-booking and the Film Boards of Trade and "their open and flagrant violation of the law." "Now that Hays is in bad over the Teapot Dome matter, is a good time to keep after him in the Film Matter. ... I want to see the Senate go into the matter and find out why Will Hays has such a pull with the Department that he can block action against his clients."
