REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT


The PRESIDENT,
The White House.
SIR: This is a report on the results of the Notice of an Opportunity
to File Objections to the amendments to the Code of Fair Competi-
tion for the Textile Processing Industry, which was issued Sep-
tember 10, 1934, with the provision that objections again-st the
Proposed Amendments could be filed any time prior to September
25, 1934. The amendments, which are attached, were presented by
the duly qualified and authorized representatives of the Industry,
complying with statutory requirements.
In accordance with customary procedure, all complaints received
were given careful consideration and all statutory and regulatory
requirements were complied with.
PROVISIONS OF THE AMENDMENTS
There are two amendments as follows:
1. The addition of a new section, number 14 to Article I defines
the term any twelve months."
2. The amendment of Article III, Section 1 (e) provides that
each member of the Industry shall keep accurate and complete
records of such of his or its transactions in the Industry as may
be necessary to enable the Code Authority or the National Indus-
trial Recovery Board to observe and determine whether or not such
member is complying with the provisions of the Code. It is also
provided that the Code Authority or the National Industrial Re-
covery Board may cause the examination of such books and records
as may be required, this examination to be made by an impartial
agency.
FINDINGS
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to us on said amend-
ments to said Code having found as herein set forth and on the
basis of all the proceedings in this matter:
We find that:
(a) The amendments 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
obstructions 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
maintaining united action of labor and management under adequate
governmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair compe-
titive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the
present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue restric-







tion of production (except as may be temporarily required), by in-
creasing the consumption of industrial and agricultural products
through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving un-
employment, by improving the standards of labor, and by otherwise
rehabilitating industry.
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the pert-
inent 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.
(c) The Code empowers the Code Authority to present the afore-
said amendments on behalf of the Industry as a whole.
(d) The amendments and the Code as amended are not designated
to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The amendments and the Code as amended 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
amendments.
For these reasons these amendments have been approved.
For the National Industrial Recovery Board:
G. A. LYNCH,
Administrative Offioer.
OCTOBER 31, 1934.
