Each member of the board shall have power to administer oaths, examine witnesses, and shall have power to issue subpoenas to compel the attendance of witnesses and the production of all necessary reports, books, papers, documents, correspondence, and other evidence, at any designated place of hearing. Such subpoenas shall be signed by one of the members thereof or by the secretary and shall be authenticated by the seal of the board, and any party to any proceeding before said board may secure subpoenas, without charge, from said board.

Any person who, having been sworn or affirmed as a witness in any such proceeding, shall willfully give false testimony, shall be guilty of perjury. The fees for the attendance of witnesses shall be paid by the party arranging for the attendance of such witnesses.
