REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White Hrouse.
SIR : An application has been duly made pursuant to and in full
compliance with the provisions of the National Industrial Recovery
Act for an amendment of Article VI of the Code of Fair Competi-
tion for the Collapsible Tube Industry, by the Code Authority.
In order that the Code Authority for the Collapsible T'ube Indtus-
try may establish legal obligation making payment of approved
Code Authority assessments for Code ~Administration mandatory,
and that if such assessments are not paid within a reasonable time
it may institute legal proceedings therefore, this Industry has sub-
mitted and respectfully requested approval of an amesndment where-
by these purposes may be accomplished.
The Assistant Deputyr 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 this matter:
I find that:
(a) The amendment to said Code and the Code as amended are
well designed to promote the policies and purposes of Titler I of the
National Industrial Recovery Act, including the removal of obstrue-
tions to the free flow of interstate and foreign commerce which tend
to diminish the amount thereof, and will provide for the general
welfare by promoting the organization of industry for the pu~rl .ne
of cooperative action' among trade groups, by inducing and mamn-
taining united action of labor and management under adequate gov-
ernmental sanction and supervision, by ehimmating unfair competi-
tive pradct~ices, by poromoting the fullest possible utilization of the
present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue re-
striction of production (except as may be temporarily required), by
increasing the consumption of industrial and agricultural products
through. increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relievingr un-
employment, by imnprovmrg standri:;ds of labor, and by otherwise
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the
pertinent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without
limitation Subsect~ion (a) of Section 3~, Subsection (at) of Section 7
and Subsection (b) of Section. 10 thereof.
(c) The Collapsible Tube Mnl~lufacturers Association wcas and is
*a trade association. truly representative of th-e aforesaid Industry and
that said association imposed and imposes no inequitable restric-
tions on admission. to membership therein and `has applied for or
consents to this amendment.
(d) The amenIC.IIluet and the Code as amended are not designed
to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The amendment and the Code as amended are not designed to
and will not elimninate or oppress small enterprises and will not
operate to discriminate agaainst them.
(f) Thlose engagedrr in othI-er steps of the ecolnomlic proom'~- h~ave
no-t bleen depr,~ived of the right to be heardl~ prior to apprm-a'\lt of said
F~or these retason,l, therefo-re, I havec approved'''- this umendmentlllll to
becomelt cfthti\. e fifteen (15) day-s from~l the datet of the O!~~rde unless
tgood~ cause to the conlrtraryS is showvn to me before that tjll:Ime an I
issue a subsequently' l ordert'L to that effec~t.
