REPORT TO T'HE: PRESIDENT


The PRESTEENT,
The White Hlouse.
SmR: This is a report on the Supplementary Code of Fair Com-
petition for the WCTiring D~evice Industry, a Subdivision of the Elec-
tr~ical Manufacturing Industryr.
An application has been duly made by the Code Authority for the
Electrical Ma~nufacturing Indus~try', on behalf of the Wniring Dev8ice
Industryp, for approval of a Supplemlentury Code of Fair Competi-
tion for said W~iringa Device Industry. ThsSup'plementary Code
was submitted by the Code Commnittee of WI~iring Device Industry,
representing approximately 63r0 of the total volume of sales and
85$' of the members of the Inldustry.
A Public Hearing wvas conducted in Washington on September 11,
1934, and the Supplemrentary Code was revised and resubmitted in
its present form. Everyr person who requested an appearances was
properly heard inl accordance with the statutory and regulatory
requirements.
PROVISIONS OF TH~E SUPPLEMENTARY CODE

T3he Supervisory Age~ncy governing the WiTiringr Dev~ice Induxstry
is appoinlted by the Basic Code Aluthority of thne Electrical Mafnul-
facturing Industry and is adequately representative of all the differ-
ent elements in this Industry. Since this Wiring Device Industry
Codle is supplemental to the Codie of Fair Competition for the Elec-
trical Ma~nu~facturing Industry, it adopts all the labor provisions of
th Basic Code, as well as all other pro-visions and any amendments
that ma~y be incorporated in the Basic Code.
FINDINGS

The DeputyT Administrator in his final report to the National In-
dustrial Recov~ery Board on. said Supplementary Code having found
as herein set forth and on the basis of all the proceedings in this
matter :
It is found that:
(a) Said Supplementary Code is well designed to promote the
policies and purposes of Title I of the National Industrial Recovery
Act, including removal of obstructions to the free flowv of interstate
and foreign commerce which tend to diminish the amount thereof
and will provide for the general welfare by promnotinlg the organiza-
tion of industry for thze purpose of cooperative action among thes
trade groups, by inducing and manintainingr united action of labor
and management under adequate governmental sanctions and super-
vision, by eliminating unfair competitive practices? byg promoting the








fullest possible utilization of the present productive ca pa city ofk in-
dustries, by avoiding- unduLe restriction of production (except as m~ay
be temporarily required), by increasing; the consumption of indus-
trial and agricultural products through increasing purchasing power,
by reducing and relieving unemnploymecnt, by improving standa.rds
of labor and by otherw-i-te reha~bilitatingr industry.
() Said Industry normally employs not more t~han fifty thou-
sademployees; and is not classified by us as a major Industry.
(c) The Suplementary~lt~! Code as approvedi complies in all respects
with the pcertInentl provisions of said Title of said Act, including
without Zrlimiateion Surbsction. (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of
Secti~on 7, and Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof ; and that the
applicant group is anr industrial group truly representative of the
afor~esaid Indlustry; and that said group1 "mpo'ses no ineqluitable
restr~iic~tirlns on admissions~ to ml~lembeship therpein.
(d) The Supplemlentary Code is not desI-ignecd to and will not per-

(e) The Supplemenic ltary Code is not deisigned to and wFCil not
eliminate or oppress mall enterprises and will not operate to dis-
criminate against them.
(f) Those enageal1 in other: -teps of the economic process have not
been depin-1il. of the right to be heard prior to allpp~rovl of said
Supp'I-'lenwat~ary Code.
For these reasons, there~fore, the ~National Indusltr~ial Recovery
Board has approved this Supiplem~entary Code sulbject to the follo~w-
ilng condl:-itio:ns:
1. That the last .wnltince~- of SeC~ttion 2 of ~Article II1 be stayed for a

Code or until the Na~tiolnal Industrial Reco-very Board shall by- its
further onlerl: otherwise dtircc-t
2. Thrat SectionI 2 of A~rticle III: be de~leta~l.
