er  [a  complaint  stating  the charges in that respect and containing a
notice of hearing before the board at a place therein fixed to  be  held
not  less than seven days after the serving of said complaint] A COPY OF
THE CHARGE THAT WAS FILED WITH THE BOARD AND A NOTICE SETTING  THE  DATE
FOR THE SERVICE AND FILING OF AN ANSWER. Any such [complaint] CHARGE may

time]  FROM TIME TO TIME prior to the issuance of an order based  there-
on.    The  EMPLOYER OR THE person so [complained of] CHARGED shall have
the right to file an answer to the original or  amended  [complaint  not
less  than  five  days  after  the  service  of such original or amended
complaint] CHARGE and to appear in person or otherwise to give testimony

In the discretion of a member or agent conducting the hearing, or of the
