REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
Th~e White Hlouse.
SIR: This is a report on the application of the NJatio~nal Control
Committee on behalf of the Emlelrgncy N;ational Committee as at
present constituted of the Mlotor Ve5hicle Reta iln Tb )Crade, to amend
the Code of Fair Comnpetition for said Trade, so as to peermit of a,
cha nge in the Code administrative st ructurle, made necessarIy by prac-
The reason for requesting~ this amlelndenlt is that under the Code
as approved the valid election of the State Advisory: Conunittees of
a~ll tates~ is neC(~cessarT before the? Emergency ~National Co~nunittee
whichh is the Nationlal Code Authority) can be legallyr constitutetl.
If for any reasonl the election of a single State Advisory Commrittee
should be invalid, the Emergency NPiational Committee would noct be
p'roper~ly con titultedl.
This ammenuen t will make it possible for the Ch~airmlenl of the
State Advisory~ Comrrmittes which have been duly conslltitutted (to-
gether with the properly elected members at large) to serve as an
actilgr Eme~crg~ency~ National Committee to exercise the powers anld be
subject to the duties of th~e `Emergency National Committee as pro-
vided in the Code. and thereby correct the present situation. in which
no effective CodeS admlinistratioc n is possible until the last SCtate
'Electionl has been dulyr chec~kedl.
Complianee with the Code as now written. would result in the
pos~;tponemercnt until some fulturer und~ete~rmined~ date of the effective
fulnctioningr of the State Adlviso~ry Committee in every\ St~ate and the
establishing~ of thle Emlergenlcy National Commnnittee, which is the
Natio~nal Code AuthorC~litY.
Suchr restrtic~tio ns woulld result in a cultailmlent, of the 7c~tivities
of mnembers of the Trade in elffc~tulating the purlpos~es of the Code,
definitely de~laying pnrogress and creatingr a co~nditio-n of uncertainty
andt confu~io~n in the Trrade.
Th~e Depulty Admlinistr~ator in htis final report to me on said amrendl-
ment to said Code havingr found as herein set forth and on the basis
of all the proceedings in this matter:
I: findl that :
(a) The amendmetnt to said Co~de and th~e Code as amnend~ed are
well designed- to p~ormuste th~e ponlic~ies and purposes of Title I of the
National Ind~ustrial RecoveryT Act including the removal of obstruc-
tions to the free ~flowF of inlters~tate and foreign commerce which tend
to diminish th~e amolulnt t'her~eof. and will provide for the general
w-elfaret by pr~omtc~ing thle o~rganrizatio.n of industry. for the plr~pose
of cooperative action amllong tradte grroups, by inducing aInd main-
taining united action of labor andb managemnent under adequate
gove~rnlmentlt sanction and superv\isicin, by\ chilnunating~ unfair com-
petitivre practices. b pr~omoting the fullest possible utilization of the
present. pr~oductive capacity of industries, by avoidingv undue restric-
ton of produlctionl (except as m1ay b3e temnporarily requiredd, by in-
crea~sing co~nsmtionltcn of indlustrial and agricultural products throug h
inecrasing purchasing~;i l~, p)ower. by? reducring andi relieving unemlploy'-
ment, by impi~iroving standalr~ds of Inbor,! andt byr oth~erwise rehaibili-
int i ng induct ry\.
(b) Ther C'ode asi amendedt comnplies in all respec~ts w-ith ther per-
tinient prov-isions o~f said Title of saidi Act, includling w~ithouit limni-
intioni Subsectionl (a) of Section ;3. Subse~tctin (a) of Section 7 and
Subs~c~tionl (b~) of Sectioni 10 ther~eof.
(c) Thle Ami~li-lendmn and the Codle as ameitnded~ are not designed
to and will not periint monopolies or mlonopohistic practices.
(d) The amniiidmentr andi the Code as amendedl are not dlesignec d
to andl w\ill not eliminate oir op~precss ilmall enterpris-es and will not
op~erate to dlisrcl~riinate against~ thiemi.
S(e) Those engagedl inl other. steps~ of th~e economies process have not
been deprived of thle right to be~ bene~d pr1ior to appriovanl of said
1For these recaso~n t~his :Imendmnent has beeni approved.
