REPORT TO THfE PRESIDENTIAL


T'he PRESIDENT,
The WVhite House.
SmR: This is a report of the hearing on, the Code of Fair Compe-
tition for the Painlt, Varnish, and Lacquer ~Manufacturing Industry
conducted in Washington on the 26th of September, 1933, in accord-
ance with the provisions of the National Industrial Recovery ~Act.
EcoNomaC EFFECT OF THE CODE1

Paint is a manufactured product used in part for new production
of industrial and consumers goods, anld in part as a maintenance
material. The quantity required for the former purpose bears a
positive relation to general manufacturing activity. For the latter
purpose, where the need may be deferred, the current financial con-
dition of the owner of the property has considerable bearing .upon
the quantity of paint used. Fltor this latter purpose also t~he cost of
the paint is a factor of considerable importance.
The quality of paint in general may be judged by the effective-
ness of the covering produced, either as protection or appearance, or
both, and the life of that covering. These qualities are not only a
function of the ingredients of the paint, but also are a function of
the method of preparation of the ingredients and their mixing. It
is possible, therefore, to produce paint of varying degrees of quality
through a wide scale of costs, and the public is not necessarily in a.
position to judge quality other than by price. As a consequence of
this condition, many practices involving the sale of cheap paint have
grown up in the Industry, which, coupled with the financlil situation
of the last few years, has tended to cause demoralization.
The Code, as submitted herewith, contains in Part Two an un-
usual number of trade practices which are considered detrimental to
the Industry and consequently are prohibited. In the form in. which
they now stand they meet the approval of the Consumers' Atdvisory
Board.
The provisions contained inl this Code as to minimum wages and
maximum hours are generally in line with approved codes employ-
ing labor of the same quality and under similar conditions.
T'he reduction in thne number of hours from 47.5 of Jrune, 1933, to a
maximum of 41.2 average for a six months' period provided by the
Code will mean an increase in employment of approximately 25 per-
cent. It is estimated that at the low point of employment there were
approximately 18,000 workers in. early 1933, and that the provisions
of this Code, even under present conditions, should increase the
number employed to nearly 25,000.
The wanges set up in the Code will increase thre pay of only about
20 percent of the workers in the Northern area and 30 percent of the
(17 o)





171.


workers in the Southern area, but the resulting (increase in purchas-
ing power, when coupled with the increase in number of workers in
the I[ndustr~y, ~ill be material.
F~INDINGs

The Administrator ~finds thate--
(a.)'The Cfode as recommended complies in all respects with the
pertinent provisions of Title I of the Act, includingP~ wiSethout limt
tion, subsection (a) of Section 7 antd subsection(bofecin1
thereof ; and that
(b) The applicant group imposes no inequitable restrictions on
admission to membership therein and is truly representative of thre
Paint, Varnish, and Ltacquer Manufacturing Industry ; and that
(c) The Code as recommended is not designed to promote mo-
nopolies or to elimninate or oppress small enterprises and will not
operate to discriminate against them and will tenmd to effectuate the
policy of Title I of the National Industrial Recovery Act.
I~t is recomnmenlded, therefore, that this Code be immediately
adopted.
Respectfully,
HUGIIH S. JoHNSON,
Administrator.
