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 Cotton Textile Industry. The.
amendment, which is attached, was presented by the Code Authority.
Notice of opportunity to be heard on this amendment. was given
and no objections were received.
The amendment -provides that that portion of sub-division 4 of
the second paragraph of Section 1, defining piece dyeing machines
as "productive machinery" shall be stricken out and that "piece
dyeing inachines where the aime are used in production of unprinted
fabrics" shall be inserted, because of the fact that in cases where
a fabric after being dyed in the piece is to be printed, the piece
dyeing machine no longer remains the productive machinery.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said
amendment, to said Code having found as herein set forth and on
the bas:is of all proceedings in this matter:
I find that.:
(a) The amendment to .-aid Code and the Code as amended are
well designed to promote the policies and purposes of Title I of
the National Indus.trial 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 miiintaining united action of labor and management t under
adejquate governmnental 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 r,-striction of production (except as may be temporarily re-
quired), by inrea-ing the consumption of industrial and agricul-
tural products through iincreasiiLg 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 limita-
tion Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (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 the above reasons this amendment has been approved by me.
HUGH S. JOHNSON,
AvcuST 2, 1934.
