REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The T~hite House.
SmR: Thlis is a report on amendments to the Code of Fair C~ompeti-
tion for the Bedding Manufacturing Industry as approved by me on
January 23, 1934. Application was made under date of April 7,
1934 by the Code Authority: for the Bedding Manufacturing Indus-
try for amendment of certain of the provisions of Articles II and
VII of the said Code. All interested parties were given opportunity
to present their views at a Public Hearing held on these proposed
fourteen amendments on Mlay 4! 1934.
Four of these fourteen amendments have been approved by mne.
They are intended to clarify the languagae of that section of the Code
which prohibits the use of second-hand or previously used material
in t.he manufacture of bedding and regulates renovate or repair
work, to clarify the Code's definition of second-band and previously
used material, to imnplment. existi;n regulations perta~ining to the
taggrringr of bedding,~ and to required complia~nce with all provisions of
the C~ode, notwithstanding requirements of State statutes.
The Assistant D~eputy Administrator in his final report. to me on
said amendments 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 amendments to said Code and the Code as amended are
wfell designed to Promote the policies and purposes of Title I of the
National Indlustral Recovery Act including the removal of obstruc-
tions tol the free flow of interstate anrd foreign commerce which tend
to diminish the amount thereof, and will provide for the general wel-
fare by promoting the organization of industry for the purpose of
cooperative action of labor and management under adequate gov-
ernmental sanction and supervision, by ehimmatmng unfair competz-
tive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the
present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue restric-
tion of production ~(except, as may be temporarily required), by
increasing the consumption of industrial and agricultural products
through increasing: purchasing power, by reducing and relieving un-
employment,, by improvring standards of labor, and by otherwise
(b) TLhe Code as amended complies in all respects with th~e perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without himita-
tion sub-section (a) .of Section 3, sub-section (a) of Section 7 and
sub-section (b) of Section 10 the~reof.
(c) The Ciode empowers the Code Authority to present the afore-
said amendments on1 behalf of the industry as a whole.
(d) The amendments and the Code as amended are not designed
to anld wpill not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The: amendments and the Code as a~mendled are not designed
to and will not eliminate or opplress small ent~erprises and will not
operate to discriminate against then.
(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
Therefore, I have approved said four amnendments..
