REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The Wlhitel How~ue.
SrIR: An ap~plication has been duly made pursuant to and in full
compliance with the provisions of the National Industrial' Recovery
~Act for a miodification of the Code of Fair Comnpetition for the
Pipe Nipple Maonufacturing Industryr, submitted by the Cod-e
Authority for t~he said Indunstryv.
The existing provisions of Article VI, Siection 8, of thle C~ode for
said Indrustry, are entirely' inadequate in view of Execut.ive Ordler
6678 andl Adtministrative Order X-.36, and it is therefore evident
that the proposed mnodifientioni of Article VI of saidl Code, the
provisions of which follow closely the text of the above mentionied
Orders, will overcome the existinga inadequate provisionls..
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to mne on said mnod-
ification of said Code having foundl as herein set forth andl on the
basis of all the pr~oceedlings in this matter:
I findl that:
(a) Thle miodlification of said C'ode anld thle Clode as mlodlified2 are
well designiedl to promote the policies and purposes of Title I of the
National Inidustrial Recovery Act including the remlovall of obstruc-
tions to the fr~ee flow of interstate andl foreign commiierce wh~lich tend
to diminish the amount thereof, andl will provide for the general
welfare by promoicting the orgjanization of industry for the purpose
of cooperantive action amlong trade groups, by indlucinlg and mauin-
taining uniited~ action of labor and. mnanagemnci t under adequate gov-
ernmental sanction andc supervision, by elim~inating unfair comlpeti-
tive practices, by promnoting thle fullest poss,4ible~ utilization of the
present productive capacity of the indlustries, by avoiding undue
restrictions of production (except as may1! be temporar.ily? requiredd,
by increasing~ the consumpiItioni of industrial an~ agricultural prod-
ucts through increasing purchasing power, b'y reduc'\ingi andl reliev-
ing unem ploymenlt, by improving standards of labor, and by3 other-
wise rehiabilitatinig indlustry.
(b) The Codle as mlodifiedl complies in all Irespects with t~he per-
tinent p~rov\isions of said Title of said Act, includ~ingL without limni-
tat~ionl Subsection (a) of Se~ctio~n 3, Sjubsec~tion (s) of Section 7,
aind Subsection (b) of Section 10 there~of.
(c) The modlificatio n andc the Codei as mnodified are not dlesigrned
to andl will not permllit mlonopo.lies or mionopl olistic practices.
(d) The miodlificatio ni andi the. Code as miod~ified are no~t designed
to and w\ill noti eliminate o~r op)press~ small1 enterprises and will not
operate to, discrimnin ate against themn.
(e) Those engaged in other steps of the economic process have
not been deprived of the right to be heard prior t~o approval of said
For these reasons, therefore, I have approved this modification,
such approval and such modification to take effect in ten (10) days
unless good cause t~o t~he contrary is shown t~o mne before that time
and. I issue a subsequent order to that effect.
