REPORT T`O THEfi PRESIDENT

The PRESIDENT,
The W~hite House.
SmR: This is a report on t~he Supplemenltal Code: of Fair Competi-
tion for the Incomotive Appliance Subdivision of the Manchinery and
AQllied Products Industry, Public Henring having been conducted
theronn in WaTsh~ington,~ D.C., April 27, 19341, in accordance with the
provisions of Title I ojf the Nat~ional Industrial Recovery Act.
GENERL STA~TEMENT

The Locomotive Alppliance Institute being truly representative of
this Subdivision of the Manchinery and Allie~d Prodructs Indlustry,
has submnittedl a Supplemental Code of Fair Comlpetition to the
Basic Code for the Ma~chinery and Allied Products Indust~ry,
ap'proved by you Marsch 17, 1934. The Locomlotive Alppliance
Industry is a capital goods indlust~ry being; engaged in the manufac-
ture andl/or sales of appliances, d'evices or attachments and replace-
ments theref specially designed andl mrranu-factured for use in the
constrlrutionn or repa~iring of locomo11tives as ulsed for tractive power.

ECONOMIIC :EFFECT

This Subdlivision suffered considerably froml the effects of the
Depression. Tvhe agg~regate annual ales of the Subdivision declined
from $24,855,000 in 1929 to $3,818,0030 in 1933 or eigrhty-four per cent
while the aggr~egatte production capacity remained about the sanme at
approcx imately $24,000O,000) and the aggrega~te invested capital at
about $3(:,H0,000,0.
Estim~t'ed~ employment of factory ~ollrkers declinedd fromt 1,975i in
1930 to a minimum of 910 in the first quarter of 1933 or Cl3.9%c~, and
increased thereafter to approximately 1,2441 in Novembel~tr 1933 or
36.70% over the first quarter of 19333. Employmennt i~n N\ovemnber 1933
was 37% below- the 19t89 level.
ThirtyT-eight per cent of thne factory workers wer~e working mnore
than forty (40) hours~ per week during a represe~tnative w\ele of
June 1933. Thle average workr-week; declined fromn 50.5 hourrs~ in
1990 to 33.8 hocur~s in June 193:3, and thzen. increasedl to 35.0. in Noveml-
ber 1933.
Due to the fact that the Subd~rivisio~n in Novemb~'ter 1933 w\as ope~rat-
img on a 35.9 hour week~l, probably no increase in emlploymlent muay
be expected as a result of the adoption. of a fortY-hIour week'l.
FIN;DINGS

TChe D~eputy Admninistratorr in his finall report to me on said Supple-
mental Code having found as hercin1 set forth and on the basis of all
the pr~oceedlings in this mactter:








I find that:
(a) Said Supplemental Code is well designed to promote the
policies and purposes of Title I of the ~Natio~nal I~ndustrial ]Recovery
Act, including removal of obstructions to the free flow of interstate
and foreign commerce which tend to dimninishi t~he amount. thereof
andl will provide for t~he general welfare by promnotingv t~he organiza-
tionl of industry for t~he purpose of cooperative action aniong the
trade groups,1)5 by~ inducin g and mnaintaining united action of labor
and manageiengen under ad-equate governmnental sanctions and super-
vision, by chmmintmg unfair comipettitive practices, by promoting
the fullest possible utilization of the present productive capacity
of industries, by av\oidingr undue restriction of production (c xceptlt
as may' be temlporarily' requir~ed), by increasing the consuimption of
industr~ial and agricultural products thlclirough increa~sing~ pur1c'hasing
power, byr reducing andi relievingE unemployment,, by improving
standards of Inbor, and by3 otherwise r~ehabailitatilgr industry.
(b) Said subdivision normally employs not more than 50I,000(
employees; and is not. classified by mle as a major industry.
(c) The Supplemiental Code as approved complies in all respecis
with the pertinecnt proisio~ns of said Title of said Act, including
without limitation Subsectionl (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of
Section 7, and Subsectioin (b) of Section 10 thereof; and that the
applienlnt group> is an indusltr~ial association truly re~pres~en tativ\ e of
the aforesaid Subdivision of the Industry; and that said assoc~iationl
imnposesi no inequitable restrictions on admissionl to memibership
therein.
(d) T~he Supp~lemental Code is not dlesignled to and will not pel~lrmit
monopolies or mioniopolistic practices.
(e) The Suppleentantl Code is not decsignedl to and will not elima-
inate or oppress small enterprises alnd will no~t operate to dliscr~imi-
nate agani nst. them.
(f) Those elngaedl in other steps of the economic process hav1\e
not been dleprived of the right to be heard prior to approval of said
Supplemnental Code.
For these reas?3ons, therefore, I have approvedc this Supp~lemental
Code.
