v.
Boyd LEEDOM, Individually and as Chairman, National Labor Relations Board, et al.

No. 21.

Argued Nov. 10, 1958.

Decided Nov. 24, 1958.

Mr. J. W. Brown, for petitioners.

Mr. Dominick L. Manoli, Washington, D.C., for respondents.

PER CURIAM.

1

We believe that dismissal of the representation petition on the sole ground of the Board's 'long standing policy not to exercise jurisdiction over the hotel industry' as a class, is contrary to the principles expressed in Office Employes International Union, Local No. 11, AFLCIO v. National Labor Relations Board, 1957, 353 U.S. 313, 318—320, 77 S.Ct. 799, 802 803, 1 L.Ed.2d 846. The judgment is therefore reversed and the case remanded to the Court of Appeals for proceedings not inconsistent herewith.

2

Judgment reversed and case remanded with directions.
