6h PRESIDENT,
Thje White Hliowes.
SIR: This Is a report on the Supplemental Code of Fair Compe-
ti~tion for the Air Filter Subdivision of the Machine~ry and Allied
Products Industry, public hearing having been conducted thereon in
,Wa-ishington, D.O. December 21, 1933, in accordance with the provi-
sions of T'itle I of the National Industrial Recovery Act. Every
person who filed a request for an appearance was freely heard in
public and all statutory and regulatory requirements were complied
with~.
GENERAL STATEMENT
The National ~Association of Air Filter Manufacturers, being truly
representative of this Subdivision of the Mllachinery and Allied Pro~d-
acts Industry, has elected to avail itself of the option of sub~it~ting
a Supplemental Code of Fair Ctomlpetition, as provided in ArticleI
of the Basic Code for the Mcachinery and Allied- Products I~ndustry
approved by you on the sevent~eenth d~ay of PMarch 1934.
This Subdivision represents a part of the capital goods industry,
manufacturing and selling equipment used solely for the cleaning of
air and other gases, and parts thereof except for use! in aer~oplanes,
automobiles, trucks or tractors.
ECONOMInC EFFECT
In 1929 this Subdivision employed approximately 400 persons,
including office worke~rs. ~Employmzent of factory workers, estimated
to be 338 in 19129, declined. to approximately 164 in Nov~emlber, 1933,
or 51.5 per cent.
Ac~nnual sales of the Subdivision, based on estimates furnished by
the National Association of Arir Filter Manufacturers, declined fromt
$2,000,000 in 1929 to $800,000 in 1933, or 60 per cent.
AI~pproximnately 69 percent of the workers were workiing more than
40 hours per week as of June 15, 1933. The average work-wreek
declined from 50 hours in 1929 to 38.6 hours in No~cvember 1933.
Estimated average man-hours per week declined from 16,900 in
1929 to 6,330 in Novembe~r 1933, or 62.5 per cent. Unt il there is a
further increase in man-hour requirements, the adoption of the 40-
hour week will no~t cause~ an increase in. employment in this Sub-

Based on graphic inlterpolation of sumnmarizedl National Recoverry
~Administration questionnaire returns as of June 15, 1933, approxi-
mately 18.8 per cent of the workers wsere receiving less than 40 cents
per hour; 18.6 per cent were receiving less than 38 cents per hour;
8.5 percent were receiving less than 36 cents per hour; andi 3.1 per


REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT








cent wvere receiving less than 32 cents per hour. T'he adoption of
the minimum wrage rates provided by the Code will probably cause a
Emall increaSe in the total payrolls o~f this Subdivision.

Article II accurately defines specific terms employed in this Sup-
~plemental Code.

NINDINGS
The Assistannt Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on
said Supplemlental Code having found as herein set forth and onr
the basis of all the proceedings in this matter:
I find that:
(a) Said Supplemental Code is well designed to promote the pol-
icie~s and purposes of Title I of the National Industrial Recovery








AcLt, including removal of obstructions to the free flow of interstate
and foreign commerce which tend to diminish the amount thereof,
and will provide for thre general welfare by promoting the organiza-
tion of industry for the purpose of cooperative action among the
trade groups, by inducing and :maintainilng united action of labor
and management under adequate~ governmental sanctions andl super-
vision, by eliminating unfair competitive practices, by promuotinga the
fullest possible utilization of the present productive capacity of- in-
dustries, byT avoiding undue restriction of production (except as may
be temporarily required), by increasing t~he consumption of indus-
trial and agricurlltu~ral prrodu~cts through melreasmng purchnasinrg power,
by reducing and relievmng unemployment, by improving standards
of labor, and by otherwise rehabilitating industry.
(b) Said Subdivision employs not more than 50,000 employees and
is noot classified by- me as a maJor industry.
(c) The Supplemental Code as approved complies in all respects
with thie pertinent provisions of saidr Title of said AcL~t, including~"o
without limitation Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection a)o
Section 7, and Subsection (b) ofSectioni 10 thereof ; and that the
atpplicanrt association is an. industrial association, truly representa-
tive of the aforesaid Subdivision; and th~at; said association unposes
no inequitable restrictions on admission to membership therein.
(d) Th]e Supplemental Code is not designed to and will not permit
monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The Supplem~ental Code is not designed to andl will not elimi-
nate or oppress small enterprises and wo~~i ll ot operate to discrimi-
nate 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
Supplemental Code.
For these reasons, therefore, I have approved this Supplemental
Code on the condition, that certain provisions relating to price publi-
cation are stayed, as stated in the Order.
Respectfully,
HUGH S. JOHNSON,
Admdlinis trator.

in the manufacture of such specified products.
Revised price lists and,'or discount sheets andt/or terms of sale
and payment may be filed from time t~o time ther~eafter with the Code
Authority by any such employer, to become operative upon the
date specified therein, but such revised price lists and~/or discount
sheets and,.or terms of sale and payFment shall be filed with the Code
Authority ten (10)) days in advance of the operative date. Copies
thereof, with notice of the operative date specified, shall be immnedi-
rately published and sent to all employers cooperating under this
Supplemental Code as described in Article V, (dj any of whom may
file, if he so desires, revisions of his price lists and/or discount sheets
and/or terms of sale and payment, which shall become effective upon
the date when the revised price list and~/or discount sheets and/or
terms of sale and payment first ~filed shall go into effect
(b) If and when the Code Authority shall determine that in any
group of the Subdivision not nowf selling its product on the basis o~f
price lists with or without discount sheets with terms of sale andf
payment, the distribution or marketing conditions in the group are
the same as, or sumilar to, the distribution or markle~tinrr conditions
in the group where th~e use of price, lists, withl or withblut discount
sheets and terms of sale and paymlent is well recognized, and that
a system of selling on net price lists or price lists and discount sheets
with terms of sale and payment for such specified product should be
put into effect in such group, then each employer in such crloup shall,
within twenty~ (20) days after notice of such 'determinatiTin, file with
Code Authority net price lists or price lists a.nd discount sheets,
with terms of sale and payment, who shall immediately publish and
send copies thereof to all known employers cooperating under this
Supplemental Code, and such price lists and,/or discount sheets
a See paragra~ph 2 of order approving this Code.








and/or 'erms of sale and payment may be thereafter revised in the
manner hereinatbove provided. Provided that Code Authority shall
make no determination to place anJ product of the Subaivision (not
now on a price list basis) on a pricei list basis, as provided in. this
Section unless affirmative consent to such determination is given by
a 662/3%0 vote of employers who are at that time cooperating under
this Supplemental Code as described in AC~rt~icle V (d), and are en-
gaged inl manufacturing such product. T1Che eligibility requirements,
method, and effect of such voting shall be the same as is providled in
iArticle 'V.
S(c) Code ALuthority for the purpose of determining the lowest
treasonable cost shall to the extent permitted by the Act, have power,
on its own initiative, or on the complaint of any employer, to in-
vestigate anyl price or thle terms of sale and payment for any product
of any emnployrer; and, for the purpose of thle investigation thereof,
to require such employer to furnish such information concerning the
cost of manufacturing and selling such. product as Code Authority
shall deem. necessary or proper for such purpose, and as the Ac~ct mnay
allow.
Nlo employer shall sell directly or indirectly by any means wmha-tso-
ever, any product of the Subdivision covered by provisions of this
~Article V-III at a price or at discounts or on terms of sale a~nd pay-
ment, different from those provided in his own current net price
lists, or price lists and discount sheets, and terms of sale and pay-
ment.

encing a sale.
(2) The payment, or promise to pay, to any agent, fiduciary or
representative, of money or valuable thing, with or without the
knowledge of his principal, in connection withl any sale to his prin-
cipal. This provision shall not be construed to prevent the free and
general distribution of articles commonly used for advertising, ex-
cept so far as such articles are actually used for commercial bribery
as hereinabove defined.
(3) The publishing of advertising (whether printed, radio, dis-
play, or of any other nature) which is misleading or inaccurate in
any material particular, nor shall any employer in any way mis-
represent any goods (including but without limitation its use, trade-
