REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
SIR: This is a report on an amendment to the Code of Fair Com-
petition for the Industrial Supplies and Machinery Distributors'
Trade. This amendment was proposed in accordance with Article
VIII of the Code, approved October 23, 1933, and Notice of Oppor-
tunity to be Heard was given November 23 to December 13, 1934.
This amendment is intended to definitely define city, state, and
goi'ernmental agencies as industrial consumers and to clarify the
definition so that there is no question as to the class of products
covered by the Code.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to the National
Industrial Recovery Board on said amendment to said Code having
found as herein set forth and on the basis of all the proceedings in
It finds 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 ob-
structions 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
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 purchasing power, 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
Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Amendment and the Code as amended are not de-
signed to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(d) 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.
(e) 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.
For the National Industrial Recovery Board:
W. A. HARRIMAN,
