SIR : This is a report on the amendment of the Code of Fair Com-
petition for the Household Ice ]Refrigerator Industry as approved
byme on D~ecember 30, 1933. ~Application was made under date of
Jily 25, 1934, by the Code Acuthority for the Household Ice Re-
frigerator IndustryT, for amendment of the provisions of A~rticle VI7,
Section 2, of the Code. Although fair notice of opportunity to be
heard on this proposed amendment was given to all interested
parties, no objections have been filed.
This amendment was drawn. up and proposed in accordance with
Executive Order No. Gt78, dated April 14, 1934, and with. th latest
sugges~tedl wording for such amendments drafted by the Legal D~ivi-
io.It is intended to govern the collection of assessments for
code administration by the ~Household I~ce Refrigerator Code
Thlfis amendment does nlot in any wcay affect thre labor provisions of
the Code or anything other thanl assessment for expenses of code
The A~ssistant D~eputy Administrator in his final report to me on
said amlendmnent to said Code having found as herein set forthl, arnd
on the basis of all the proetedingrs in this matter:
I find that:
(a) The amnendmlent to said Code and the Code as amnended are
well designed to promote! the policies and purposes of Title I of the
Na~tionatl Indulstrial ReCcovery Actt includring the removal of obstruc-
tions to the free flow of interstate and foreign commerce wFhich tend
to diminish the amount thereof, and will provide for the general w~el-
fare by promoting the organization of industry for the p~urpose~ of
cooperative action among trade groups, by inducing and maintaninlt
unitedl action of labor alnd malnlgremlent under adcequate g3ove~rnmen t
sanction alnd supervisio-n, by chmmi~atmge ulnfair comp etitive prac-
tices, by promnoting thne fullest possible ultilization ofthe present
productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue restriction of
production (xcpct, as mnay be temporarily requi3ired), by increasing
the colnsum~ption of industrial and ag~ricultural pr~odu~cts through
2ncreasing~r p-urchasing power, by redulCingr and relieving unemploy-
ment, by improving~ standards of labor, andl by otherwise rehabili-
tat~in= ind.ust ry.
(b) The Codec as amndrlced~ complies in, all respects with the perti-
nent pr~ovisio-ns of said Title of PnicT Act, includling without limita-
t irn Subsection (a) of Sect clon 3, Sutb-clet on (a) of Section 7, and
Sub.-ecrtio~n (b) of Sc~tion 10 thlelref.
(c) The Code empow~cr~s the Codle Authorlllity to present th afore-
said anwmhnenll('lt onI beha:lf? of the Industryi as a whlole.
(d) The amendment and the Code as amended are ]not designed to
and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The amendment and the Code as amended are not designed to
and will not eliminate o~ oppress small enterp-rises and will nrot
operate to discriminate against them:
(f) Those engaged in other steps of the co~nomilc process have not
been deprived of the right to be heard prior to approl'Cval of said
I believe the amendment to be fair to labor, to the consumrlit and
to the industry, and for these reasons, therefore, I approve this
