REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
SIR: I have the honor to submit herewith an amendment to the
Code of Fair Competition for the Light Sewing Industry Except
Garments. The amendment, which is attached, was presented by
the Code Authority.
Notice of opportunity to file objections to this amendment was
given and no objections were received.
The amendment provides that Sub-section (d), Section 2 of
Article VI of the Code shall be omitted and the provision con-
tained in the Executive Order dated April 14, 1934, making the
payment of the costs of administering a Code of Fair Competition
mandatory upon all members of the industry, is included.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said amend-
ment 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
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 agricultural
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 perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limitation
Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7 and Sub-
section (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Code empowers the Code Authority to present the afore-
said amemendent 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 the above reasons this amendment has been approved by me.
HUGH S. JOHNSON,
MA 22, 1934.
AMENDMENT TO CODE OF FAIR COMPETITION FOR
THE LIGHT SEWING INDUSTRY EXCEPT GARMENTS
The Code of Fair Competition for the Light Sewing Industry
Except Garments shall be amended by omitting sub-section (d),
Section 2, Article VI, and inserting the following:
"(d) It being found necessary to support the administration of
this Code in order to effectuate the policy of the Act and to maintain
the standards of fair competition established hereunder, the Code
Authority and Divisional Committees are authorized, subject to the
approval of the Administrator:
"(a) To incur such reasonable obligations as are necessary and
proper for the foregoing purposes and to meet such obligations out
of funds which shall be held in trust for the purposes of the Code
and raised as hereinafter provided.
"(b) To submit to the Administrator for his approval, subject
to such notice and opportunity to be heard as he may deem necessary.
"(1) An itemized budget of their estimated expenses for the fore-
going purposes, and
"(2) An equitable basis upon which the funds necessary to sup-
port such budget shall be contributed by all members of the Industry
receiving the benefits accruing from the maintenance of such stand-
ards, and the administration thereof.
(c) After such budget and basis of contribution have been ap-
proved by the Administrator to determine and secure equitable con-
tributions as above set forth by all such members of the Industry,
and to that end, if nece:,.-ary, to institute legal proceedings therefore
in its own name.
"Only members of the Industry who comply with the require-
ments of the Code and contribute to the expenses of its administra-
tion, as provided herein, and assent in writing to the Code, shall be
entitled to participate in the selection of the members of the several
Divisional Committees and to receive the benefits of their voluntary
activities or to make use of any National Recovery Administration
Insignia. Failure to contribute to the expenses of the administra-
