Sin: This is a report of the Modifications of the Code of Fair
Competition for the Farm Equipment. Industry as revisedl after a
Public Hearing conducted in Washington on February 23, 1934, in
accordannce within Article XYI of said Code as approved on October
The definition of the products of t~he Industry has been amended

w~ith the miodifiedl definition the following groups are brought within
the provrisions of the original Codle:

The ter~m association is nowf defined to mean the Farm Equip-

ment. ~a nu facture rcs ".
Wa~~tchmen anid heat firemen (as distinguished from power or
pressure firemen) are exemnptedl from those provisions of the Code
which limit hours of lInbor to forty-eight (48) per week or not to
exceed an average of for~t.y (410) per week over a six-months period,
but their hours many nlot exceed fifty-six (56) per week.
Sales by' members of the Inldustry to governmental agencies are
not gaover~ned by' th~e provision in the Code which limits the period
of credit to two (2) years.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said MIodifi-
cations of said Code having found as herein set forth and on the
basis of all the proceedings in this matter:
I find that:
(a) The Miodifications of said Code and the Code as mod~ifed are
well designed to promote the policies and purposes of Title I of the
National Industrial Recovery Act including the removal of obstrue-
tions to the free flow of interstate and foreign commerce which tend
to dimiinish the amount thereof, and will provide for the general
welfare by~ promnotingr the organization of industry~ for the purposes
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 industries, by avoiding undue restriction of
production (except as may be temporarily required), by increasing
the consumption of industrial and agricult.ur~al products through
increasing purchasing power, by reducinga and relieving unem~plo~y-
ment, by improving standards of labor, and by o~therw~ise rehabilitat-
(~b) The Code as modified complies in all respect~s with the perti-
nent provisions of saidl Title of said Act, including without limnita-
tion Subs~ct~ion (a) of Section 3. Subsections (a) of Section 7 and
Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Farmn Equipment Institute was and is an industrial sso*-
ciation truly representative of the aforesaid Industry and that said
association imposed and imposes no ineqluitable restrictions on adm~is-
sion to membership therein and has applied for or consenits to these
(d) The M~odifications and the Codle as modified are not. designed
to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The Mlodifications and the Code as modified ar~e not designed
to and will not eliminate or oppress small enterpr~ises aznd 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, these MIodifications have been approved by me,
but, on the condition that the provisions of Amendment No. 5 relat-
ing to heat firemen are hereby stayed for a period of sixty (6C))
days subject to my further orders.
