NATIONAL LABOR RELATIONS BOARD, Petitioner,
MRS. BAIRD'S BREAD, DALLAS, Respondent.
No. 27481. Summary Calendar.
United States Court of Appeals Fifth Circuit.
December 16, 1969.
Elmer P. Davis, Director, Region 16, N. L. R. B., Fort Worth, Tex., Arnold Ordman, Gen. Counsel, Dominick L. Manoli, Associate Gen. Counsel, Marcel Mallet-Prevost, Asst. Gen. Counsel, Leonard M. Wagman, Michael F. Messitte, Attys., N. L. R. B., Washington, D. C., for petitioner.

Much of the evidence, and the inferences reasonably to be drawn therefrom, are in direct conflict. Nevertheless, taking into consideration the credibility determinations and choice of inferences which devolve upon the Board, we have no doubt that the findings are amply supported. See, in particular, N. L. R. B. v. Gibbs Corporation, 5 Cir., 1962, 297 F.2d 649, 651; N. L. R. B. v. Monroe Equipment Company, 5 Cir., 1968, 392 F.2d 559, 561.
It necessarily follows that the Order will be
