AMENDMENT TO CODE OF FAIR COMPETITION

As Approved on December 21, 1933
IN THE .$fATTER OF THE APPLICATION OF THrE SorrrHERN PLO' nlANU-
FACTUTRERS ASSOCIATION AND THE BLOUNT PLOo ~TIORKS, FOR CER-
TAIN EXYEMPTIONS FROM THE ClODE OF FAIR COMPETITION FOR THE
FARMr EQUIPMrENT INDUSTRY
A Code of Fair Competition for the Form Equipment Indlustry
has been heretofore approved by me. After such approval, and in
accordance with the provisions of my further E~xecutive Order dated
July 15, 1933, hearings have been granted byr th~e Admninistrator to
the above-n~amed applicants, allegedly directly affected by said Code,
who have claimed that applications thereof have been unjust, to them
and hav~e applied for an exemption ther~efrom w~ithi reference to the
minimum wage provided in the said Code, and a change in w~ordling
to effect more complete dlissemination of statistics.
It appears to me on the basis of the showing mladee at the hearings
granted the applicants above named as set forthi in the report
thereon, dated November 21, 1933', rendered to me by the Administ-
trator,? which is hereby adopted~ and approved, that no case of injus-
tice has been made out by the Sout~hern Plow Mianufueturers Asso-
ciation respecting minimum rates, but that the wording of Article
VI, Section 2. of the Code is unnecessarily restrictive:
NOW\, THEREFORE, I, Franklin i). Roosevelt! President of
the U~nitedl State~s, pursuant to the authority andl discretion vested
in me under Title I of the! National Industrialn Recov'ery\ Act, ap-
proved June 16, 1933, and otherwise, andi in accordance w~ith the pro-
visions of my Executive Order dated July' 15, 1933, providinig for
hearing onl the applications of Codes under certain circumstances, do
order that the application for exemp~tioni by the Southern Plow
Manufacturers Association, be and is hereby denied, but that the
words "' members of the Association in the last sentence of Article
VI, Section 2, be and is hereby changed to employers who have
agreed to the Code."'

Sm: This is a report. of the! hearings which has been granted, in
accordlance with the pr~ovisions of your Executive Order dated July
15, 1933, to certain mannufacturers, the Siouthern Plow Rlanufac-
turers ASssociation andr the Blounlt 'Plow Works, who have alleged
that they are directly affected by the Code of Fair Com~petitioni for
the Farml Equipment Indlustry, and who have claimed that applica-
tions of that Code have beeni unjust to them and have applied for
I amn attaiching herewith--
1. Report of the Assistant Deputy Admninisrtrator, who conducted
said hearing, which ~epor~t is ac~ceptedl andi app~ovedi.
2. Copy of transcript of the records.
It. appears to me on the basis of showinar rade at the hearing
granted the Southern Plow Malnufacturer~s' rfssociation that no case
of injustice requiring special treatment has been mande out by the
above-nam~ed applicant, and,_ acoirdingrly I recommlendr thiat the
application of the aforementioned party 'for exemptionl or for stay
of application of the provisions of the Code of Fair Competitiojn for
the Farm Equipment Industry~ be denied~.
Because the wording of A~rticle V'I, Section 2, of the Code pre-
vent~s a nonmecmber of the A~ssociation from reviewr of the staltistics
of which he is part, I r~ecolmmend that the application of the B~lount
Plow Wlorks for access to the statistics be granted, and that th-e
words "' members of the Association "? in the last sentence of Article
VI, Section 2, be changed to ''employrers who htav-e agrreed to the
