ment to a Code of Fair Competition for the Cotton Textile Industry,

NOW, THEREFORE, on behalf of the President of the United

REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
SIR: This is an amendment drawn to correct changes which ap-
peared in the amendment to the Code of Fair Competition for the
Cotton Textile Industry, as approved on July 17, 1934, for the Code
of Fair Trade Practices Governing the Merchandising of the Prod-
ucts of the Cotton Thread Manufacturing Branch of the Cotton
Textile Industry. These changes developed after the proposed Fair
Trade Practices had left the office of the Deputy Administrator.
Therefore, this amendment is necessary to make the finally approved
amendments coincide with those submitted and approved by the
Industry and the Advisory Boards. A hearing was not held nor
was a Notice of an Opportunity to File Objections issued, due to
the minor changes made. However, the order approving this
amendment provides that it shall not be effective for fourteen (14)
days from the (late of approval.
PROVISIONS OF THE AMENDMENT
Subsection (a), Section 21, Amendment No. 8 is amended to read
"The Board of Directors or the Sub-Committee on Thread", in-
stead of "of" in the first line; and the word "it" is deleted after
the words "proposed to in the fourth line.
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 rerioval of ob-
structions to the free flow of interstate and foreign commerce which
tend to diminish the amount thereof, and will provide for the gen-
eral 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 com-
petitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of
the present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue
restriction of production (except as may be temporarily required),
by increasing the consumption of industrial and agricultural prod-
ucts through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and reliev-
ing unemployment, by improving the standards of labor, and by
otherwise rehabilitating industry.
(b) The Cotton Textile Code as so amended complies in all re-
spects with the pertinent provisions of said Title of said Act, includ-
ing without limitation Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a)
of Section 7 and Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Cotton Textile Industry Committee is empowered to
present the aforesaid Code of Fair Practices on behalf of the In-
dustry as a whole.
(d) The Code of Fair Trade Practices and the Cotton Textile
Code as amended are not designed to and will not eliminate or
oppress small enterprises and will not operate to discriminate against
(e) The Code of Fair Trade Practices and the Cotton Textile
Code as amended are not designed to and will not permit monop-
olies or monopolistic practices.
For the above reasons this amendment has been approved.
Hucu S. JOHNSON,
SEPTEMBER 11, 1934.
