SmR: An application has been duly made pursuant to and in full
compliance with the provisions of the National Industrial Recovery
Act for an amendment to the Code of Fair Competition for the
Motor Fire Apparatus M~anufacturing Industry, submitted by the
Code Authority for the said Industry.
The existing provision of Article VI, Section 4, of the Code for
said Industry is entirely inadequate in view of Executiv-e Order
6678, dated April 14, 1934, and Administrative Order XY-36, dated
May 26, 1934, and it is therefore evident that the proposed amend-
ment to Article VTI of said Code, the provisions of which follow
closely thle text of the a~bove-mlentione 1 Orders, will overcome the
existing adequate provisions.
The Deputy Administrator, in his ~final report to me on said
amendment to said Code, having found as herein set forth and on
the basis of all the proceedings in ths matter:
I find that:
(a) The~ amendment to said Code and the Code as amended a.re
well designated to promotef the policies and purposes of Title I of the
National Industrial Recovery Act, including the removal of obstruc-
tions to the free flow of interstate and foreign commerce which tend
to diminish the am-ounlt thereof, and.wcill provide for the general wel-
fare by promoting the organization of industry for the purpose of
cooperative action among trade groups, by inducing and maintaining
united action of labor andl management under" adequate gaovernmen-
tal sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair competitive prac-
tices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of t.he present
prodluc~tivet calpacity of the industries, by avoiding undure restrictions
of production (except as may be temporarily required), by increas-
ing the consumption of industrial and agricultural products through
increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving unemploy-
ment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise rehabili-
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects wFit.h the pert.i-
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 thereof.
(c) TIhe amendment and the Code as amended are not. designed
to and will r at permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
(d) The amendment and the Code as amended are not designed
to and will not eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not
operate to discriminate against them.
(e) Those engaged 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, therefore, I have approved this amendment.
