Smw: This is a report on the amnendment of the Supplementary
Code of Fair Competition -for the L~eather and Shoe Findings Trade
as approved by me onr May 17, 1934. Application was made under
date of July 30, 1934, by the Divisionlal Code Atuthority for the
Leather and Shoe Fiiidings Trade, for amendment of thle provisions
of Article III, by adding a Secstion. 5. Fiair notice of opp~ortulnity
to file objections to this amendment was given to all interested par~ties.
This atmendment was drawn up and proposed in accordance within
Executive Order No. 667T8, daltedl April 14, 1934, and w-1ith the L~egl
Division's suggested wording for such amendments. It is intended
to govern the co~llection of assessments for code administration by the
Leather and Shoe Findings Trade.
This amendment does not in any wayr affect. the labor provisions
of the Supplementary Code or anything other than assessment for
expgenses of code administration.
The D~eputy Admllinistr~ator in. his final report to me onr said amend-
ment to said Supplemnentary Code having foulnd as herein set forth,
a nd on the basis of all thle proceedings in this matter.;
I find that:
(a) The amendment to said Supplem~entary Code and the~ Supple-
mlentary Code as amnendled are well designed to plromlote thie policies
and purposes of Title I of the Nat~ional Industrial Recovery Act in-
cludinog the removal of obstructions to the free flow of interstate and
foreign c~ommler~ce which tend to diminish the amount thereof, and
will pro~vid~e for the genertlf welfare by promnoting the organization
of industry for the purpose of cooperantire :action of labor and man-
agrement ulnder adcequalte gov\ernmecntal sanictIon and supervision, by
celminating unnfair comp~etitive practices, by promnoting t~he fullest
possib~le utilization of the present~ pr~oductive calpacityS of industries,
by avoid~ing~ undue restric~tion of .rodluction (except as mlay be tem-
porarily reqlliuired), by increcascin l t~he con~sumpltion of industrial and
agriculltura~l products through inr~cn;rreaingpurchasngnr power, by re-
dueinge and believing ulnempIloyment, byimprovinig standards of
labor, alnd by othecrwnise rehab~ilitating indstry9.
(b) The $upple mntantry Code as amendled complies in all respects
w~ith the pertinlent p~rovisionsn~ of said TPitle of said~ Act, including
without limitati~ in Subs~eCtion (a) of Sectionl 3, Subsection (a) of
Sct'ionl 7, and Subs~cctio~n (b) of Sc~tionl 10 thereof.
(c) Thle National~l TLea;fther and Shoce Finders Association was and
is a trader associationl truly r~epresenltative of thes aforesaid trade and
that. said a.sscn-intion~ imposed~t and~ imlposes no inequitanble restrictions
on adm~ission1 to membelrlrshlip there~tin and c~onlsents to this amendment.
REPORT TO TH3E PR~ESIDENT
(d) The a~mendmtent, and the Supplementary Code as amended are
not desiganedf to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic
(e) The amendment and th~e Suppleml~entar~y Code as amended are
not designed to and will not elimninnate or oppress small enterprises
and will not operate to discriminate against them.
(f) Those ellngaged in other steps of the economic process hav\e not
been deprived of the right to be heardS prior to alpproval of sanid
For these reasons, I have alpprov,\ed this amendment to the Supp~le-
mentary Code! of Fair Competition for th2e Leather and Shoe Fiind-
Re spec t f ullyI,
