REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
SIR: An application has been duly made pursuant to and in full
compliance with the provisions of the National Industrial Recovery
Act, for an amendment, to the Code of Fair Competition for the
Athletic Goods Manufacturing Industry.
In writing up the final draft of the above Code the word "other "
was inadvertently omitted from Section 4, Article I, Schedule B.
Without this word the entire meaning and intent of this Section is
nullified and as the Section is important to the Industry it is neces-
sary to have this correction made.
T his action is taken at the request of the Code Authority for the
Athletic Goods Manufacturing Industry and it is in my opinion in
order for you to give your approval thereto.
SThe Division 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 removal of obstruc-
tions 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 maintain-
ing united action of labor and management under adequate govern-
mental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair competitive
practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the present
productive capacity of the industries, by avoiding undue restrictions
of production (except as may be temporarily required by increasing
the consumption of industrial and agricultural products through in-
creasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving unemployment,
by improving standards of labor and by otherwise rehabilitating
(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) That the aforesaid amendment is necessary to correct an error
in the Code as submitted to the President for his approval.
(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 oppres.; 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 these reasons, therefore, I have approved this Amendment.
