REPORT TO THIE PR~tESI[DENT
The White H4ouse.
SmR: An application has been. duly made pursuant to and in full
compliance with the provisions of thne National Industrial Recovery
Act, for an Amendment to the Code of Fiair Competition for the
Inland Wi~ater Carrier Trade in the Eastern Division of the United
States operating via the New York Canal System, submitted by the
Code ~Authority for the said Trade.
The existing provision of Article XZ, Section 9 of the Code for
said Trade, is entirely inadequate in. view of Executive Order 6678
and ASdmninistrative Order X-36, and it is therefore evident that the
proposed amendment to Article X of said Code, the provisions of
which follow closely the text of the above mentioned Orders, will
overcome the existing inadequate provisions.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to mne on said
amendment to said Code having found as herein set forth and on
thne 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 Title I of the
National Industrial Recover~y Act including the removal of obstrue-
tions to the free flow of interstate and foreign commerce which ~tend
to diminish thle amount thereof, and will provide for the general
we~clf.re. by promorting th~e organization of industry for the purpose
of cooperative action among trade groups, by inducing and main-
taining united action of labor and management under adequate gov-
ernm~ental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair competi-
tive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization. of the
present productive capacity of the industries, by avoiding undue re-
strictions of production (except as may be temporarily required),
by increasing th~e consumption of industrial and agfricultural prod-
ucts through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving
unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
(b) TIhe Code as amended complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limitat-
tionn Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7, and
Subsection. (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Co~de empowers the Code A1~uthority to present the afore-
said amendment on behalf of thne Trade as a whole.
(d) The amendment and thre Code as amended are not designed to
and will not permit monopolies or m~onopolistic practicesx.
(e) Thle amendment and th~e Codc~e as5 amelcndedt are not des~igned~ to
an ill not climinutet o~r opp~lress small eterp~~ri- esi alnd will not
opernte to discriminate; again st thzem.
(f) Thols~e engagedcll in other. steps of the eccnomic~ plrNccs hav~e not
bee~n dcpr~ivedc o~f thle right to be heard;~c prior to atpprova\;l of said
FE~or thiese reasons, therecfore, I ha~ve apino-oved this amexcndment.
