RIEPOIRT TO THTE PRESIDENT


THE PRESIDENT,
The W~hite HEouse.
SmR: This is a report on the Supplemental Code of Fair Competi-
tion for the Con~tractsr~s' Pump Subdivision of the Alachinery and
Allied Products Industry, public hearing having been conducted
thereon in W~ashington,: D. C., Decemnber 21, 1933 in accordance with
the provisions of Title I of the National Idustrial Recovery Act.
Every person who filed a request for an appearance was freely heard
in public and all statutory and regulatory requirements were
com~plied ~ithl.
GENERAL STATEMENT

!The Contranctors' Pump 1\lanufacturers Institute, being truly rep-
re~sentative of this Sulxlivision of the Miachinery and Allied Products
Ind~ustryg, has elected to avail itself of the option of submitting a
Supplemental Code of Fair Competition, as provided in paragraph
(2), Article I of the Basic Code for t2he Miachinery and Allied Prod-
uct~s IndustryS approved by you onl the seventeenth dlay of lliarch,
1934.
Thiis Sulbdivision represents a par"t of the capital goods industry,
manufacturing andi selling dewateringr and pressure pumps of the
following types: diaphragm, standard centrifugal up to 8"' in size
and self priming centrifugal up to 6"' in size for dewatering pur-
p'oses; p'lungcer and piston type trench pumps; contractors' water
supply pum'ps, and road1 pumps and parts thereof, intended for use
by contractors in the construction industry.
ECONOMIC EFFECT

In 1929 this Subldivision of the Indlustry employed approximately
341 persons including ofliee emplolryees. Approximately 282 are es-
timaltedl to hav-e b~een efcoryr wage earners. Since 1099, total em-
ployment declined fr~om 341 persons to about 135 as of October 15,
1303, or 60%S~.
Estimatedt annual pales in 19L29 amounted t.o $~,'1,75,00j0. In 1930,
they' inlcreansed to $2,0l!10,00 and~ declined thereafter to $645,000 in
193", or 679;.
Th7le minimum hourly rates in the approved Basic Code (of which
thiis is a sulpplement) consist of one differ~ential for the South and
th~iree city pop'ulationl differentials for all other sections of the United
States:
Over JointHo 17wo'ulatio~n__---------- 4ocents per hour.
30,010dn to 50,000H Popula tion ---------,------- 38 cents per hour.
10r.000~ and unller_____,_,-_________ 3scents er hour.
South.....__,, __..,-- .,-- ..____ 32centsper hour.









In addition to the minimum wage rates shown above, the Basic
Code provides that women engaged in substantially the same work as
men shall receive the same rate of pay as such mecn employees; that
the minimum wage for women employees engaged in plant opera-
tions shall be not less than 87.5 per cent of the proper rate for the
locality in which employed as specified; and that the miniumln in
the South shall be not less than 32 cents per hour.
Based on the distribution in June 1933 and on the specified per-
centages of the number of factory workers receiving less than the
designated rates shown in t~he table be~low, the adoption of the pro-
posed minimum rates will probably cause an increase in factory pay-
rolls. The estimated increase in June 1933, regardless of location of
the workers, will probably, under the most favorable conditions, not
exceed about 4 per cent, assuming only upward adjustment in the
brackets below the 40-ce~nt minimum and no change in mlan-hour
requirements.

all the proceedings in this matter:
I find thant:
(a)~ Said Sup~plemental Code is well dlesigned to promote the
polces and purposes of Title I of the National Indlustr~ial Recovery
Act, including removal of obstructions to the frece flowr of interstate
and foreign commerce which tend to diminish the amorunlt thereof
atnd will provide for th~e general welfare by promoting the o~rganiza-
tion of industry for the purpose of cooperative action among the
trade groups, by inducing and~ mlainltaining united action of labor
and management under adequate governmental sanctions and super-
rision, by chimmantmg unfair compe~ttitie practices, by promotmg~
the fullest possible utilization of the present productive capacity o
industries, by avoiding undue restriction of production (except as
may be ~temporarily required),i by increasing thle consumption of in-
dustrial and agricultural products t~hrougrh increasingr pulrchasingr
power, by redlucing and relieving unemployment, 'by improving
standards of labor, antd by otherwise rehabilitating industry.
(b) Saidl Subdivisilon normally employs not more than 50,000
emiployees, and is not classified by me a~s a major indlustry.
(c) The Supplemlental Code as approved complies in all respects
with t~he pertinent provisions of said Title of said Act, including
w~ithlout limitation Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) o~f
Section 7, and Subtsection (b) o~f Section 10 thereof ; and that the
applicant institute is an industrial institute truly representative of








the aforesaid Subdivision of the industry; and that said institute im-
poses no inequitable restrictions on admission to membership therein.
(d) The Supplemental Code is not designed to and will not permit
monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The Supplemental Code is not designed to and will not elim-
inate 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 ojf said
Supplemental Code.
For these reasons, therefore, I have approved this Supplemental
Code, provided that certain provisiions relat~ing to price publication
are stayed as stated in the Order.
Respectfully,
HUGH S. JOHNSON,
Ad ministrator.

are the same, or similar to, the distribution or marketing conditions
in a grOUoup where thie use, ofE price lists, with or without discount
sheets adfixed term of sale an paymlent is well recognized, and

thority net price lists or price lists and discount sheets, with fixed

nowF on a price list basis) on a price list basis, as provided in this
pamrar~aph (b) of Article VIII unless affirmative consent to such de-
termmattio is given by a 66%T6o vote of employers who are cooperat-

reasonable cost, shall, to the extent permitted by the Act, have power,
onl its own initiative, or on the complaint of any employer, to investi-

ARTICLE XL-UNFram TRADE PRACTICES

Each of the following acts and practices is deemed to be inimical

method of competition andl is hereby~ prohibited; viz:
(a) The renting of any new product with the object of con-
verting the transaction into a sale, provided, however, that this pro-
vision shall not, prevent the renting of products~ of t~he Subdivision

recognized.

or demonstration on the purchaser's job, except that in t~he case of the

been sold, or in any case where a product may be sold to b~e employedi
for a distinctly recognized newr use, anyr employer many include, in
