]REPORT T1CO THE PRESIDENT


The PRESIDNT,
The TY Aite Hclouse.
SmR: Thlis is a reports of the HFenaring onl the Supplem~ental Codle of
the Radio Wvlholesaling Trade to thle Codle of Fair Competition for
t~he W~holesaling or D~ist~ributingc Trad~e conducted in Roomn 2062-66,
Commrerce Buildling, on. February 24, 1934~. "The Supplemnental Code
which is aIttac~hedl was prlesented3 by duly quanlifiedl and authorized
rIepr~esentatives of the Trade, complying withl the statutory require-
ments, said- to rep-reselnt 56 percent in num!lber and 7i6 percent in
volume of the Trade w-phich could be includled -in thlis C'ode.

THE TRADE

Available census figur~1es do not specifically classify the Radio
WF~holesale business as such. According to staltist~ics furnished by
mnemlbers of the Tradec, there ar~e appr~ioximately 500 concerns en-
gaged in it. Their total annual sales in 192>9 amounted to approx-
Imately four hundred and twrenty-five million dollars, and in 1933
to seventy-fi~ve million. dollars. The Trade employs about 4500
persons.
PRO\?SIONS OF TH'E CODE

Since this Code is supplemental to thne General Clode of Fair Com-
petition for th~e Wholesaling or Distributing Trade, it contains no
labor provisions.
The provrisions colntiningT supplemental definitions are inclusive
andl necuraite
The suppllemtent to the administrative pr~ovisions, establishes a
Divisional Codte Auithority for this Tradc~e, which is fairly and ade-
qua"tely repr~esentative of t~he dliffere~nt elements in the T'rade. Ac-
cordingr to the most neculrate available statistics. the Radio WThole-
salers Association contains among its miemblership or is authorized
to represent, in the administration of the Code, 156 percent of the
total number of c~on~cer~ns in the Tradel. Its memlber~s sell approxi-
mately 76 percent of the total volumer. The selection of nine repre-
sentatives of thle Codec Authority by the A sociatio~n and three repre-
sentatives by non-mnemblers of the AIssoc~iation, therefore, seems to be
fair.
The Trade P~ac~tice rules conlta-ined~ ini thie Sup~pleme~ntan l Code are
not in any respect objectionable aInd are dlesigned to promote fair
dealingr in the Tradie.
FINDINGS

The Deputy Administratorl in his final r~epor~t to me on said Code
having found as hereinl set forth and on the basis of all the proceed-
ings ini thnis matter;






I find that:
(a) Said Code is well designed to promote the policies and pur-
poses of Title I of the Nat~ional Industrial Recovery Act, including
remio\al of obstructions to the free flow of interstate and foreign
commiierce which tend to dimlinish th~e amount thereof and will pro-
vi;de for the ge~neral welfare byl promoting t~he organization of indus-
try for thle pulrpose of cooperativer action among thle trade groups, by
inducing and manintaininga united action of labor and management
under~ adequate governmentall sanctions and supervision, by elimni-
nating unfair comnpettitive practice, by promiotinga the fullest possible
utilization of the present productive capacity of industries, by avoid-
ing undue restriction of production (except as miay be tem~porarily-
required), by increasing the consumption of industrial and agricul-
tulral products through increasing puirchasing power, by reducing and
relieving unem ployment, by implroving standards o.f In bor, and by
otherwise rehabilitating industry.
(b) Said Trade normally employs not more thnni 50,000 emlployees;
and is not classified by me as a major industry.
(c) The Code as approved complies in all respects with the
pertinent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without
limitation Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7,
and Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof; and that the applicant
group is a trade group truly representative of the aforesaid Trade;
and that said group imposes no inequitable restrictions onl admission
to membership ther~ein.
(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 oppress
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 approval of said
Code.
For these reasons, the Supplemental Code has been approved.
Respect fully,
HuanH S. JoHNSON,
Administrator.

A-tRTICLE L\J-TRADE PRACTICES

Sulpplementzfing Artile VII of the General Code.
CEC'TION iStbblerfWrfle.- It Sha~ll be an unfair trade practice for
any member of the Trade to employ subterfuge, dlirectly or indi-
Srectly, to avoid or attempt to avoid the provisions of this Ciode or
the purposes and intent of the National Industr~ial Recovery Act,
which are to increase emplloyment, provide better wages, promote
fair competitive methods, better business conditions, and promote
the public welfa re.
SEcn~ow 2. Prot~ction~ to Dealere. -Members of the Trade shall
not discrimninate, directly or indirectly, between dealers in services
rendered or in discounts or net prices extended; provided that noth-
ing herein shall prohibit quantity discounts.
SECTION 3. 081t and Prie Provisions~--
(a) .Selling Belozo Cost.--It is considered an unfair method of
competition and inimical to best public interest for any member of
th~e Trade to sell any item below cost except as permitted in para-
graph (b) of this Section. Cost, for the purposes of this Section,








shall be the net invoice pu~rchase price, plus transportation charges
to the wholesaler's warehouse, and, when ascertained by the Admin-
istrator, upon thle recommnendation of the Divisional Code Authority,
to include a reasonable amount for dlirect labor costs entailed in the
sale and delivery of the merchandise and the collection of accounts by
the member of the Trade.
(b) Dr~opped Lin)es.--Dropped lines or surplus stocks, sometimes
designated as "; closeouts ", held by any member of the Tr~ade, or in-
ventories which mnust be converted into enshl to meet immediate neds,
may be sold at such prices as are necessary to mov.e these stocks
into buyers' hands. However, all such stocks must first be reportedly
to the Distr~ict Agency at least two weeks prior to t~he oflFer of sale,
listing the descriptions, quantities, andr minimum acceptable prices
of such stocks and reasons for such sale. The member shall certify
that he is acting in good faith. The District Agency shall act upon
suchi report within one week after its receipt and shall approve the
sale unless it finds that. thle same will not conform to any one of
the conditions of this paragraph, in which event it may recommend
disapproval of such sale to the Divisional Code Aut~hority. If the
Divisional Code Aulthority' shall disapprove the findings of such Dis-
trict Agency, it. shall at once notify the member of the T1rade and
the District Agency that such sale may be made; if the D~ivisional
Code Authority approves the finding of the District Agency it shall
recommend the disapproval of the sale to the Administrator. T~he
Administrator, acting upon such recommendation, mayr order the
sale prohibited. If the proposed sale is not. prohibited bry the ArSd-
ministrator before the date scheduled for the sale, the member of
the Trade shall have the right to proceed to sell such stocks in
accordance with the terms of the report originally filed. Such
stocks when sold shall be plainly and completely described in the
invoice and, or advertisinga as to its closeout character.
(c) Termls andc CaslJh Disco unlts.-T'erms of sa le shall not be more
favoranble than 2C' as a cash discount (except when anticipated), or
net 30 days.E from the date of each invoice. The date of each invoice
shall be the shipment da~te. The cash discount period shall be fixed
by each District Aoency for its District and filed with the D~ivisional
Code Authority, which may, with the approval of the Admlinistrator,
upon review, secure revision of any period so fixed. No cash dis-
count shall be granted after the time so fixed shall have expired or
where payment is made by any instrument t~hat does not, maature
within the cash discount period. Nor shall any added discounts
greater than 6%b per annum be allowed for anticipation of pay-
ment, nor where the customer owes an unpaid balance unless the
whole of such balance be disputed in good faith. Where settlement
is made in the form of notes or their equivalent, interest shall be
charged at the rate of 6%i per annum from the net due date. Pro-
vided, howrever, that in both the above cases if t~he legal rate of inter-
est in the State governing the contract be less, such rate shall apply.
(d) Filinlg of Pri'ce Sch~d~ules.--Should any District Agency find
that a two-thirds majority of all the members of the Trade in its
district desire to file their Price Schedules, the District Agency shall
require all of the members of t~he Trade operating in its district to
file with it their Schedules of prices, discounts, terms, and all allrow-







ances, setting forth a. snpecfic date fo-r sucrh Siling Such schedules
shall become effective upon the dlate of filing fixed by the District
Agency which shall in-unedliately ma7ke such schedules available to
all members of the Trade in that District ande to such~ other inter-
ested parties in that district as mlayr request theml andl pay t.he cost
thereof. Any member of the Trades mlay revise his sc~hedu~les by
filing such revision with the Distr.ict. Agency! in w~rit~ing, wThereupon
sulch revt~ision shall become effective immlediately andl notice thereof
$ven to all m~embers of the Trade in that District and to such other
interested parties as may request thlem andl pay the cost, thereof. It
shall be an unfair trade practice for' an, memibler of the Trade to sell
or offer for sale goods at prices lower than those which he then has
on, file.
(e) Rebates or Subsidi-es.--A memnbrr of the Trade shall not
directly or indirectly, offer to pay pr~enluums, bonuses, or subsidies,
nor pay any of the operating expenses of a dealer's business; nor
pay the salaries, wages, and/or commissions of a dealer's employees;
nor pay any bonuses or compensation to a dealer's salesmen for the
purpose of having the dealer or dealer's salesmen favor or push the
sale of any specific products over those of a1 competitor; nor furnish
the services of its own emlployees for the purpose of relieving the
dealer of the expense of similar employees as a subterfuge or rebate;
nor pay for local dealer advertising and, or sales promotion plans
beyond the amount set forth under Sections 4 and 5 of this Article.
SECTION. 4. Bales Promzotion P~lans.--Any member of the Trade

ments be more than one-fourt~h the total cost, of such advertising,
regardless of the amount of the mlanufacturer's contribution, pro-
vided that nothing in this paragraph shall be construed to prevent
cooperative advertising arrangements betweenl distributors and
dealers, but the amount so expended byr the distributor shall not be
greater than one-half of the dealer's cost of such advertising; p~ro-
vided, further, that not more than a total of 21,15% of a distribu-
tor's total net sales of radio apparatus to his dealers for his current
fiscal year shall be expended for both types of such cooperati ve
advertising.
Members of the Trade shall require of all dealers taking advantage
of the coopera~tive advertising plans, A proper written statement cer-
-tifying to the correctness of the dealer's advertising rates as being the








fair current contract rate. Allowances paid by the member of the

fled~ statementse coveringr actual cost of broadcasting, or of the actual
space used in newspapers, publications, billboards, placards, theatre
screens, or other customary public media. The cost of any mechalni-
cal set-up and art w~ork as well as cuts, make-ready, or other simiilar
