REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT


The PRESIDENT,
The White House.
SIR: On October 16, 1934, you approved an Executive Order cre-
ating the Cotton Textile Work Assignments Board and establishing
rules and regulations for the handling of work assignments in the
Industry until February 1, 1935. It was originally contemplated
that by that date, the Work Assignments Board would have sub-
imitted a permanent plan for the regulation of work assignments
which would have been incorporated in the Code as an amendment.
Several factors prevented this. On December 27, 1934, you ap-
proved Executive Order 6930 giving the Work Assignments Board
until a reasonable time after January 1, 1935 to submit its recom-
mendations.
The attached Amendment extends the so-called freezing period ",
during which time work assignments are not to be increased, until
thirty days after the Work Assignments Board has submitted its
recommendations for a permanent plan.
FINDINGS
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to the National
Industrial Recovery Board on said amendment to said Code having
found as herein set forth and on the basis of all the proceedings in
this matter:
It finds that:
(a) The amendment to said Code and the Code as amended are
well designed to promote the policies and purposes of Title I of the
National Industrial Recovery Act including the removal of obstruc-
tions to the free flow of interstate and foreign commerce which tend
to diminish the amount thereof, and will provide for the general
welfare by promoting the organization of industry for the purpose
of cooperative action among trade groups, by inducing and maintain-
ing united action of labor and management under adequate govern-
mental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair competitive
practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the present
productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue restriction of
production (except as may be temporarily required), by increasing
the consumption of industrial and agricultural products through
increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving unemploy-
ment, by improving the standards of labor and by otherwise rehabili-
tating industry.
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limita-
tion Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7, and
Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof.






3

(c) The Code empowers the Code Authority to present the afore-
said amendment on behalf of the industry as a whole.
(d) The amendment and the Code as amended are not designed to
and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The amendment and the Code as aimeneiled are not designed
to and will not eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not
operate to discriminate against them.
(f) Those engaged in other steps of the economic process have
not been deprived of the right to be heard prior to approval of said
amendment.
For these reasons this amendment has been approved.
For the National Industrial Recovery Board:
W. A. HARRIMAN,
A dm,;n iistrative Officer.
JANUARY 31, 1935.













AMENDMENT TO CODE OF FAIR COMPETITION FOR
THE COTTON TEXTILE INDUSTRY

Amend Section XVII, Subsection (2) by deleting the words
"February 1, 1935" and substituting therefore the following:
"one month after the report to the President as to a permanent
plan for regulation of work assignments in the industry as pro-
vided in subsection (5) hereof,"
Amend Section XVII, Subsection (3) by deleting the words
"February 1, 1935 and substituting therefore the following:
"one month after the report to the President as to a permanent
plan for regulation of work assignments in the industry as pro-
vided in subsection (5) hereof,"
Subsections (2) and (3) as amended are as follows:
(2) In order to provide opportunity to develop a sound method
and adequate organization for the regulation of work assignments,
no employer prior to one month after the report to the President as
to a permanent plan for regulation of work assignments in the in-
dustry as provided in subsection (5) hereof, shall make any change
in work asigiiunent of any class of employees which shall increase
the effort required over that prevailing on September 21, 1934.
During this period the number of looms, frames or other machines
required to be tended by any class of employees shall not be increased
where the character of the raw material, yarn, construction of cloth,
pr'Leparatory procee.ses, type of equipment used, or character of finish
or put-up, is not changed. Where such changes do occur the number
of machines tended by such employees may be increased or decreased
in such manner as will not increa-ce the amount of effort required of
the worker.
Where, during the period above referred to, a mill resumes the
manufacture of any specific product which it has made within six
months prior to September 21, 1934, and where the conditions of
'1iinuifactuire enimlera te in the preceding paragraph are not
changed, then the work load formerly used on such product shall
be the guide in determining the proper work assignment.
Where, on September 21, 1934, a new style of yarn or cloth or
any other new type of product was in course of introduction or is
thereafter during the period above referred to introduced into a mill
or finishing plant, a tentative work load may be established during
the period of determining a proper work load in accordance with
the foregoing principles.
(3) Prior to one month after the report to the President as to
a permanent plan for regulation of work an-si.nments in the industry
as provided in subsection (5) hereof, on petition of any employee





5

or employer affected, or his representative, or on its own motion,
the Cotton Textile Work Assignment Board may investigate any
work assignment which has been increased since July 1, 1933, at
any mill and the mill shall show the reasons for such increase. If,
after hearing, the Board finds such assignment requires excessive
effort it may require its reduction accordingly.
Approved Code No. 1-Amendment No. 13.
Registry No. 299-25.
