REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The W'hite House,
Smx: An application has been duly made pursuant to and in full
compliance with the provisions of the National Industrial Recovery
Act, for a modification of the Code of Fair Comipetition for the
Trailer M~anufacturing Industry.
The existing provision of Article VI, Sectiori 6 of the Code for
the said Industry~, is entirely inadequate in viewf of Executive Order
6678 and Administrative Order X-36, and it is therefore evident
that the proposed modification of Article VI of said Code, the pro-
visions of which follow closely the text of the above mentioned
Orders, will overcome the existing inadequate provisions.
The Deputyv Administrator in his final report to me on said modi-
fication 9f said Code having found as herein set forth and on the
basis of all the proceedings in this matter:
I find that:
(a) The modification of said Code and the Code as modified are
well designed to promote the policies and purposes of Title I of the
National Industrial Recovery Act including the removal of obstrue-
tions to thie free oflo of interstate and foreign commerce which tend
to diminish the amnounit thereof, and will provide for the general
welfare by promoting the organization of industry for thle purpose
of co~operativ~e action among tradle groups,~ by ind ucing and main-
taining united action of labor and2 management. under adequate gov-
ernmnental sanction and supernrsion, by eluininating unfair compet.1-
tive practices by promoting the fullest possible ultilizationI of the
present productive capacity of t~he industries, by avoiding undue
restrictions of production (except as may be temporarily required),
by increasing the consumpItion of industrial and agriculuaprd
uct~s through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving
unemnploymnent byr improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
(b) Thle C~ode as m~odified complies in all respects w~ith th~e per-
tinent provisions of said Title of said Act., including without limiitat-
t~ion Subsection (n) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7, and
Subsection (b) of Section 10, thereof.
(c) Thie Trailer Manuirfacturers' Association was and is a trade
association truly recpreserlnttive of thle aforesaid Industry, and that
saidl association impiIosed and imposes no inequitable restrictions on
admiission to memnbership therein and has applied for this modifi-
(d) The modification and the Code as modified are not designed
to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The modification and tIhe Code? as modlified are not desigrned
to and wvill not eliminate or oppress smanll enterprises and will not
operate to discriminate against then.
(f) Those engaged in othler step~s of thme economics process have not
been deprived of the Iiright to be heard prior to approval of saidi
For these reasons, therefore, I harve approved this modification.
Respectfully, n Sj lrsY
A dmk1is t rator.
