REPORT T`O TH]E PRESIDENT
The WChite Hiouse.
SmE: This is a report on the modifications to the Code of Fair
Competition for the Fur Dressing and Fur Dyeing Industry, onr
which a public hearing was held on April 27, 1934.
The first modification definitely sets the hours in which. each estab-
lishment in the industry is permitted to operate. It thereby detfi-
nitely fixes a thirty-five-hour w~eek in this industry and affords the
Code Authority more opportunity to enforce the hour provisions of
The second modification protects the members of the Code Au-
thorityv from legal action on a partnership theory.
I: find that:
(a) The modification of said code and the code as modified are
well designed to promote t~he policies and purposes of Title I of the
Nat~iotnal Industria.l Reco~ve~ry Act, incl~ludng the removal of ob-
structions to the free flow of interstate! and foreign commerce w7phich.
tend to diminish the amount thereof, and will provide for the gen-
eral welfare by promoting the organization of the industry for the
purpose of cooperative action of labor and mlanagemnent under ade~-
quate governmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair:
competitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible u-tilization
of the present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue
restriction of production (except as may be temporarily required),
by increasing the consumpttion of industrial and agricultural prod-
ucts through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving
unemployment, byr improv~inga standards of labor, and by otherwise
(b) The Cbode as modified complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limitation
subsection (a) of Section 3, subsection (a) of Section 7, and sub-
section (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The code empowers the Code Authority to present the afore-
said mnodificatiolns on behalf of the industry as a whole.
(d) The modification anmd thne code as modified are not designed
to and will not permit monopolies or mnonopolistic practices.
(e) The modification and the code as m~odlifi~ed are not designed to
and will not eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not opyer-
ate to discriminate against them.
(f) Those engaaged in other steps of the economic process have not
been deprived of the right to be heard prior to approval of said
For these reasons, these modifications have been approved.
