REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
SIR: This is a report on the results of the Notice of Opportunity to
File Objections to the Amendment to the Code of Fair Competi-
tion for the Textile Processing Industry, which was issued March
21, 1934, with the provision that objections against the Proposed
Amendment could be filed any time prior to April 2, 1934. The
Amendment, which is attached, was presented by the duly qualified
and authorized representatives of the Industry complying with
ta tu tory 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 AMENDMENT
The Amendment provides for the etabli-hmnnt of the lowest
reasonable cost of the service or product, as_ the ca-e may be, in each
division of the Industry, during such period as the Code Authority
determines that an emergency exists (due to destructive cutting of
service charges or prices, such as to render ineffective or seriously
endanger the maintenance or the provisions of this Code.
The Deputy Administrator, in his final report to me on said
Amendment to said Code, having found as herein set forth on the
basis of all the proceedings in this matter:
I find 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
ob.-truct.ions 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 competitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utili-
zation of the present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding
undue restriction of production (except as may be temporarily re-
quired), by increasing the consumption of industrial and agricul-
tural products through increasing purchasing power, by reducing
and relieving unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and
by otherwise rehabilitating industry.
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the per-
tinent 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 Amenldment 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 amended are not designed
to and will not eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not
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
For these reasons, this Amendment has been approved.
HUGH S. JOHNSON,
APRIL 26, 1934.

try is hereby amended by the addition of a new Article, Number

structive e(ttin"g of -erviie 'carge.s or prices such as to render
ineffective or :e.rioilsly endanger thie maintenance of the provisions
of this Code. tlin C'ode Aulthority may cause to be determined the
lowest reas;onm, ble cost of tle 1serv ice or product, as the case may be,
of iuch division of thi, Industry. .-uch determination to be subject
to such notice and hearing a.s the Administrator may require. The
Administratr umay a)lpprove. disapprove, or modify the determina-
