REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
SIm: This is a report on an amendment to the Code of Fair Com-
petition for the Hair Cloth Manufacturing Industry. Notice of
Opportunity to be Heard on this amendment was published on June
27, 1934; no objections were received within the given fifteen (15)
day period ending July 11, 1934. The amendment, which is attached
was presented by duly qualified and authorized representatives of
the Industry, complying with statutory requirements and being the
duly constituted Code Authority under the provisions of the said
Code for said Industry.
This amendment provides for assessment of the members of the
Hair Cloth Manufacturing Industry to defray the expenses of the
Code Authority, as set forth in Executive Order No. 6676, dated
April 14, 1934.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said
amendment to said Code having found as herein set forth and 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 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 of labor and management under adequate gov-
ernmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair competi-
tive 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
increasing the consumption of industrial and agricultural products
through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving un-
employment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the per-
tinent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limita-
tion sub-section (a) of Section 3, sub-section (a) of Section 7 and
sub-section (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Code Authority is empowered to present the aforesaid
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 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
For these reasons this amendment has been approved.
