]REPORT' TO THE PRESIDENT
The White HBouse.
SmR: This is a report on the Amendment to the Code of Fair
Competition for the Shoe and Leath~er Finish, Polish, and Cement
Manufacturing Industry which was approved by you on December
A Public Hearing on the proposed Amendmnent was conducted
in W~ashiington on January 29, 1935, in accordance with the pro-
visions of t~he NP(ational I~ndustrial Recovery Act.
T'he Am~endment deletes the provisions in the Co~de of said Indus-
try as originally approved which have to do with the allowing of
dating and shipping on consignment in this Industry and sub-
stitutes in place thereof revised provisions covering the same subject.
The Amendenlllt'l provides that it shall be unfair competition for
any member of this Industry to give dating in excess of thirty days
except (1) on merchandise shipped from coast to coast v~ia the Pan-
amaa Clanal, in which. case an additional thirty dlays is allowed; (2) on
merchandise shipped on or after September 1st and prior to Decem-
ber 1st, where the purpose is to supply the customer with his winter
requirements, in which case a dating not exceeding February 1st
may be given; and (3) shipments of cleaners for wFPhite shoes made
on or after February 1st and prior to June 1st in. which case a dating
not exceeding June 1st may be given, and after June 1st there shall
be no dating in excess of sixty days.
By this Amendmnent consignment sales are limited to thirty days..
The Deputy Administrator in his final report on said Amendment
to said Code having found as herein set forth and on the basis
of all the proceedings in this matter :
The ]Board finds that:
(a) The Amendment to said Code and the Code as amended are
well designed to promote th~e policies and purposes of Title I of
the National Inldustrial Recovery Act including the removal of
obstrulctions to the free flow of inter-state and foreign commerce
which tend to diminish the amount thereof, anld will provide for
the general welfare by promoting th~e organization of Industry for
the purpose of cooperative action of labor and management under
adequate governmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unl-
fair competitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utiliza-
tion of the present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding
undue restriction of production (except as may be temporarily re-
quired), by increasing the consumption of industrial and tgricul-
tural products through increasing purchasing power, by reducing
and relieving unem ployment, by imnprovingl standards of Inlbor, and
by otherw-ise rehabilitatingr Industry.
(b) The Codel as amendedr comphles in all resp~ects w~ith the pecr-
tinent prov\isions of saicd Title of said Act, inichl~cingr without linulita-
tionl sulbsetionl (a) of Sec~tion~ 3, sub sectionn (a) ohf Section 7, and
subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) Trhe Amnendmient and the Code as amended aic~ re not clesigned~i
to and w-ill not e~lininate, or o~ppress small enterprises and' wil no~t.
operate to dtiscrimiinate against them.
(d) Thle Amendmlent and the Code as amndn~l~ed ar1e not dle~signedt
to andl will not permit mnc-topolies or mnaopo~listic~ prac~ticesi.
(e) Trhose engaged in other steps of the economic process have
not been deprived of the right to be heard pirwr to approval of'
Therefore, said Amnerndment. has been approved.
