SmR: This is a report on the Stone Setting Contractors Chapter of
the Code ofl Fair Competition for the Construction Industry which
is dscr~~ibedIlc as Chln pter I and wr~hich wFas approved by you on January
31, 1934.
TPhis Chap~ter is a revision after a public hearing cond~uctedl in
Wash~ling~ton on April 20, 1934, in accordance with. the provisions of
the National Industrial Recoviery Act. This Chapter amplifies Chap-
ter I, but applies specjrific;dly~ to the Stone ~Setting C~ontractors Divison
of the Construction Industry.


With1 very minor xcep~cl~tions, the hours and wages set forth in
Chapter I of the Construlction Code as applroved-.~ by you on January
31, 1934 are applicable to this Code.

No official or other authentic data are available to show the app~roxr-
imnate amount of busliness- done by members of this D~ivision. Esti-
mates indicate that approximately 13,100 employees were engaged in
this Industry3 in 1929 and 5,120 in 1933.
It is reasonable to predict thatt thle establlishm eltnt. of un1i form rates
of pay and hours of work and the prohibition of unfair trade prac-
t ices will be beneficial to this Industry as well as to the employees anld
the consumer.

Th~e Depu,~ty Administrator in his final report to the Nartional
Industrial Re:(coveryl) Board on said Stone Sejttting rContractors Chap-
ter of the Code of Fair Competition for the Construction IndustryS,
having found as herein. set forth and on the basis of all the pro-
endingsilbr in this ma~tter;
TIhe Naztional Industrial Recoveryr Board finds that:
(a) Said Stone Setting Contractors Chapter and said Code of
Fair Competition for the Construction IIndustry, as supplemented
by~ said Stone Setting Conltractortcls Chapter, are well deisigned to
pr'omote the policies and purposes~' of Title I of the National Ilndus-
trial Recovery Act, including 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 promot-
ing the organ~ization of industry for the purpose of cooperative

action among the trade groups, by inducing and mnaintaining; united
action of labor and management ulnder adequl~l Catgovernmental
sanctions and supervision, by eliminating unfair competitive prac-
tices, b~y promnoting the fullest possible ultilizati~n, of the present
productive capacity of industries, by avoidling~ undue restriction
of production (except as mnay be temporarily required), by incrIeas-
ing the consumption of industrial and agricultural products through
increasing purc~hasingr power, by reducing and relieving unemploy-
ment, by improving standarrds of labor, and by otherwise rehabilitat-
ing industry.
(b) Said Industry normally employs not more than 50,000 employ-
ees; and is not classified by the National Ind~ustriaz l Rtecover~y Board
as a major industry.
(c) Said Stone Setting Contractors Chapter and the Code of Fair
Competition for tlhe Construction Industry, as supplemented by
said Stone Setting Contractors Chapter, as approved com~ply in all
respects with the pertinent provisions of said TLitle of said A~ct, in-
cluding without limlitatioln Subsectionm (a) of Section 3, Subsection.
(a) of Section. 7, and Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof; and that
t~he applicant association is an industrial association truly repre-
sentative of the aforesaid Inldustry; and that said Association im-
pose~s no inequitable restrictions on admission to membership therein.
(d) Said Stone Setting Contractors Chapter and the Code of Fair
Competition for the Construction Industry, as supplemented by said
Stone Setting Contractors Chapter are not designed to and will not
permit monopohies or monopolistic practices.
(e) Said Stone Setting Contractors Chapter and the Code of
Fair Competition for the Construction Industry, as supplemented by
said Stone Setting Contractors Chapter, 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
Stone S~etting Contractors Chapter and of said Code, as supple-
mented by this Stone Setting Contractors Chapter thereof.
For these reasons, therefore, the National Industrial Recovery
1Board has approved said Stone Settinlg Contractors Chapter of th~e
Code of Fair Competition for the Construction Industry.

the National Industrial Recovery Act, it shall publish such price.
Thereafter, during such, stated period, no member of the Industry
shall sell such specified products at a net realized price below said
