REPORT TO TH~E PRESIDENT
The Wh'/ite Hous~e.
SmI: Tlhis is n report. on the Order approving the Code of F~air
Competition for the Steel Casting Industryr as the Code of 1Fair Com~-
pet~ition for the Mlanganese Steel Casting Subdivision of said Indus-
try, and amending the definition of thne term Industry in the
Steel Casting Codte.
A Notice of Op~port~unit~y to be Heard has be~en pulblished to all
interested parties, andi unless due cause to the contrary is shown
and I issue subsequent order to thaat effect, this Order shall take effect
ten d~ays after date hereof.
Th~e termn manganese steel castings means that group o~f steel
castings comlmonly known in the trade under that name and having a
mnga~inese content of not less than tenl percent.
It is my opinion that these are kindred industries and the Mian-
ganese Steel C'asting G~roup should properly be a subdivision under
the approved Code of F~air Com~petition for the Steel Canstinga
Thle Assistant Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on
said Code hav~ingr found as herein set forth and on thne basis of all
th~e proceedings in this matter;
I find that:
(az) Said Code is well designed to promote the policies and pur-
poses of Title I: of the National I~ndulstrial Recov~ery Act, including
removal of obstructions to the free flow of interstate and foreign
commerce which tend to diminish. the amount thereof and wo9ill pro-
videe for the general welfare by promoting the organization of indus-
try for the purpose of cooperative action among the trade groups,
by inducing and maintaining united action of labor and management
und-er adequate governmental sanctions and supervision, by elimni-
nnatingr unfair competitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible
utilization of the present productive capacity of industries, by avo~id-
ingi undue restriction of production (except as may be temporarily
requir~ed), by increasing thne consumption. of indlustr~ial and agfricul-
tulral products through increasing purchasing powcper, by reducing
and relieving unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and
byr otherwisce rehabilitating industry.
(b) Said Industry normally employs not more than 50,000 em-
p~loy'ees; and is not classified by me as a major industry.
(c) T~he Code as azpproved complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limita-
tion Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section '7, and
Subsection (b) of Section 10 th~ere~of; and that the applicant group
is an industrial group truly representative of the atforesaid Industry;
and that said group imposes no inequitable restrictions on admis-
sion to memnber~ship ther~em.
(d) The Code is not designed to and will not permit monopolies
or monopolistic practices.
(e) Thle Code is not designed to and wFill not eliminate or oppress
small enterprises and will not opecrate to discriminate against thlem.
(f) Throse engaged in other steps of the economic process hlave
not been, depr~ived of thne right to be hear~d pr~ior to approval of said
For thlese reasons, therefore, I have approved t-his Order.
