REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT


The PRESIDENT,
The White House.
SIR: This is a report on the Hearing on an Amendment to the Code
of Fair Competition for the Light Sewing Industry Except Gar-
ments, held in Room 2062 of the Department of Commerce Building,
on June 1, 1934. The Amendment which is attached was presented
by the Divisional Committee for the Comfortable Division.
In accordance with the customary procedure every person who
had filed a request for an appearance was freely heard in public, and
all statutory and regulatory requirements were complied with.
The Ajlwwi.ilu'l!l~nt permits s(ea;na ble dating in the Comfortable
Division of the Industry.
Notice of Opportunity to file objections to this Amendment was
given on May 2 but so many objections were received that a Hearing
was called for June 1. The objections were based on the fact that
although -easunable dating were allowed, no anticipation could be
granted, and, further it was claimed that granting seasonable dat-
ings would work to the disadvantage of the smaller units in the
Industry which are not in a position to finance the manufacture of
the product some time prior to receiving payment therefore. No
objections were presented at the Hearing itself.
The first objection was answered by permitting anticipation at the
rate of not more than six percent per year.
In connection with the second objection, it was brought out at the
Hearing that the smaller manufacturers produced the novelty items
which are sold the year round and which are not sold with season-
able dating. According to the testimony, it is only the larger manu-
facturers in the Industry who produce the staple items which require
that seasonable dating be granted and who sell through wholesalers.

FINDINGS

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 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
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
(2)








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 limi-
tation Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7 and
Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Code empowers the Divisional Committee to present the
aforesaid Amendment on behalf of the Division as a whole.
(d) The amendment and the Code as amended are noJ 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
amendment.
For the above reasons this amendment has been approved by me.
HUGH S. JOHNSON,
Administrator.
JULY 17, 1934.
