The securities and exchange commission, created by Section 4 (a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, has from its earliest days proclaimed its right to determine who may appear before or transact business with it in a representative capacity and in Rule 2 (e) of its present Rules of Practice has reserved to itself the right, in its discretion, to "deny, temporarily or permanently, the privilege of appearing or practicing before it in any way to any person who is found by the Commission after notice of and opportunity for hearing in the matter (1) not to possess the requisite qualifications to represent others, or (2) to be lacking in character or integrity or to have engaged in unethical or improper professional conduct."
