The WIT~te Houtse.
SmR: This is a report on the Code of Fair Compet~ition for the
Shuttle M~anufacturingr Industry, which was presented by duly quali-
fied~ and aulthorizedl representative of the. Industry, complying with
statutory r~equiremlents, said to represent 75 per cent in volume of
sales of the Industr~y which could be included in this Code.


The American Shuttle Mianufact~urers' Association, being truly
representative of the Shuttle Mannufacturing Industry, has elected
to avail itself of the option of submitting a Basic Code of Fair Com-
petition, as provided in Administrative Order X-61, dated July 10,
This Industry fabricates and assembles and sells shuttles, and~/or
repair parts therefore and, or repairing thereof for the Textile MIanu-
facturing IndustryS.

According to statistics furnished by members of the Shuttle
Mannufacturmg~ Industry, there are. approximately twenty-five con-
cerns engaged in the Industry, with aggregate annual sales of
$;750,000.00. The Industry employs about 325 persons.

The hour and wage provisions of this Code establish a maximum
40 hour work wTeek and a minimum wage of thirty-five cents per hour.
This is simiilar to the mlinimumm wage in the Bobbin and Spool In-
dlustry w~hich~ is closely related to it. The other hour and wage pro-
visions are similar to those in that Ciode. The remaining provisions
of the Code are those of the Basic Code of Fair Competition, as pro-
videdd in Aidministrative Order X-61, dlated July 10, 1934.


The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said Code
having found~ as herein set forth andi on the basis-of all proceedings
in this matter:
I find that:
(a) Said Code is well designed to promote the policies and pur-
poses of Title I[ of the National Industrial Recovery Act, including
removal of obstructions to the free flow of interstate and foreign
com-merce which tend to diminish the amount thereof and will pro-
vide for the general welfare by promoting the organization of in-


dust~ry for the~ pulrpose~ of cooperat~ive ation amngln trade groups, by
inducing andl maintaiinig united~i action of labor and maunage~ment
under adequate gover~nmental sanctions and supervision, by elimni-
nating unfair competitive practices, by promoting the fullest pohsib~le
utilization of the present pr~oductive cazpacity of Irtuindusies, by avoidl-
ing undue resjtriction of production (except as may be3 temporarily
required), by increasingr the consumpItion of indlustrial and ~g~ri-
cultur~al products through increasing pulrchasingr power, by red2ucintr
and reliev~ing unemploymentn, by impr:oving standards of labor, an9
by otherwise rehabilitatingr industry.
(b) Said Ind~ustry3 normally emlploy~s not more than 50),000~ em-
ployees; and is not classified by me: as a major industry.
(c) The Code as approved complies in all respects writh the pert-
inent provisions of said Title of. said Act, including without limi-
tation Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) oP Section 7, and
Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereo~f and thast the applicant asso-
ciat~ion is an industrial association truly representatives of the afore-
said Industry; and that said association imposes no inequritable re-
strictions on admission to membership therein.
(d) The Code is not designled to and will not permit mono~polie~s
or monopolistic practices.
(e) The C'ode is not designed to and will not eliminate or op~press
fnsmall e~nterprises andn will not. operante ton isrimi~~;nate aga~ins~t them.
(f) Those engaged in other stepl~s of the economic process have not
been deprived of the right to be heard prior to approval of said
For these reasons, this Code hias been approved.
Respect fully,
Heana S. JoIINSON,
Admnin(ist~a tor.
