SmR: AS Public H1--earing on the Code of F'air Competition for the
Pipe Organ Industry, submitted by the National Association of
Organ Builders, located at 45 W~est 45th~ Street, ~New York, N~.Y.~r,
was conducted in W~ashington on the 8th of November, 1933, in ac-
cordan~lce with the provisions of the National Industrial Recovery
Act. Thne Association cIlaims to represent 95 per cent of the
Industry.
The m~aximnum hours p~ermnitted under this Code for factory emn-
ployees are forty (40) hours in any one (1) ~week provided, hzow-
ever, that this limit may be extended to a maxrimum of forty-eight
(48) hours in. anly one (1) wreekl, for a total of not to exceed twelve
(12) weeks in any7 twelve (12) month period, and provided further
that time and one third shall be paid for all hours per wIeek over
forty (40). For clerical and offce employees a maxnimnum of forty
(40) hours inl anly onle (1) week is permitted, except that inventory
a~nd statistical employees may be permitted to work a maximum of
fortyT-eig~ht (48) hours in any one (1) week for a total of not to
exceed three (3) weeks in any six (6) month period.
TPhe minimnumn wage for factory employees, except learners, is forty
cents (404) per hour. T'he mimmrrum wnge for learners is at a rate
not less than. eighty per cent (80%) of the minimum established
herein, and the total number of persons so employed by a, member
of the Industry is not to exsceed one in number or five per cent (5%0)
of the total number of such member's factory workers, whiche~ver is
the higher and th~e period of learning is limited to six (6) months
whether served under one or more employers.
T'he minimum wage for other employees, except office boys and
office girls, is fourteen dollars ($14.00) per week. Office boys and
office girls are to be paid not less than eighty percent (80%0) of
the minimum established anld the total number of such. personS em"-
ployed at less than fourteen dollars ($14.00) per week by any mlem-
ber of the Indluitry in anyT calendar mlonthr shall not exc~eed~ twco (2)
in number or five percent (5%J) of the total number of such nemn-
ber's other employees, whichev-er is the high~er. T'he minimum' rate of
pay established is to apply, irrespective of whether an employee is
actually compecnnated on a time rate, piecework performance, or
other basis. It is also provided that female employees performning
substantially the same work as male employees shall receive the.
samne rate of pay as male employees.
The value of commodities produced by the Organ.26 Marnufactur
ing Industry aggr(legated~, during 1929, $13976 uig13
product ~value dlec~lined 49.6 percent under the 1929 total, or to
$5,710,028.
The number of Pipe Organs manufactured in the Unitedl States
increased from 1,151 in 1919 to 1,'767 in 1923, and to 2,471 in 1927.
Unit production dro-pped to 1,695 in 1929. This 31.4 percent drop
of 1_929 under 19(27 was due for the most part. to the introdulction
of sound in motion-picture theaters, which was one of the two main
consumercl groups. Due to economic conditions, the d'emandl for
churlc~h organs has dimiinished~ to a very low level, as well.
Bconrse of the fact that. a pipe organnr is not a necessit~y of life, bllt
a commodity which supplies the cult-ural wiPants of mankind, it is
not purchased until the more vital n-eedi's have been supplied. Not

until prosperity hnas become well establishedl will this industry
experience a real uptur~n in business wcithi the resultant reemlploymuentt
of a substantial number of employees.
Wage earners emplolymenlt declined 38.9 percent from 1929 to
1931. On the basis of the forty (40) hour week, 438 wage earners
should benefit through reemployment.
FINDINGS
The Deputyuuuuuuuu--------- A4dministrato~r in his final report to me on said Code
having found as herein set forth and on thne basis of all the? proceed-
ings in this matter:
I find that:
(a) Said Code is well designed to promoted the policies and pur-
poses of T'itle I of the NI~ational Indulstrial Recovery Act, including
removal of obstructions to the free flow of interstate and foreign
commerce which tend to diminish the amount thereof and will pro-
vide~ for the gen"eral welfare byr promoting t~he organization of indus-
try for the purpose of cooperative action among the trade groups,
by inducing and maintaining united action of labor and m~anagemaent
under adequate governmental sanctions and supervision, by eliminat-
ing 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 ~tempo-
rarily required), by increasing the consumption of industrial and
agricultural products through increasing purchasing power, by re-
ducing and relieving unemployment, by unproving standards of
labor, and by otherwise rehabilitatinlg industry-.
(b) Said Industry normally employs nlot more than 50,000 em-
ployes; and is not classified by me as a major industry.
()The Code as approvedi complies in all respects with thre perti-
nent provisions of said TPitle of said Act, including without limitationl
Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Sec~tion 7, and Sub-
section (b) of Section 10 thereof; and that the applican-t association
is an in industrial association trul representative of thie aforesaid
Industry; and that said association~ imposes no inequitable restric-
tions on admission to ,member~ship therein.
(d) The Code is not designed to and will not' permit monopolies
or monopolistic practices.
(e) The Code is not designed to and will not eliminate or oppr~ess
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 aipproval of a
Code.
This Industry has cooperated in a most satisfactory manner with
the Administrator in thle preparation of this Code. ZFromn evidence
adduced during this hearing and from recommendations and reports
of the various IAdvisory Boards it is believed that this Code as now
proposed and revised represents an effective, practical, equif~able solu-
tion for this Industry and for these reasons this Code has been ap-
proved.
Respectfully,
Howl S. rJonsorn,
Admdzini'strator.
