REPORT TO TIEE PRESIDENT
The White House.
SIR: This is a report on th mlodific~ation of the Code of Fair
Competition for the Mectal H~at Die and WIVood Hat Block Industry,
whiich has been submiiittedl in ncccrdance w~ith Executive Order
This modification enables the Code Aulthority to incur such
reasonable obligations as are necessary to support the administ~ra-
tion of the co~de and to maintain the standards of fair comnpetit.ion
establishned- by this code. It also enables the C'ode Aut~hority to sub-
mit an. itemlizedl budget, and an equitable bansis uipon which the
funds necessary to support suxch budget shall be contributed by the
member~cls of the industry. Suchi contributions are made miandatory
by this mnod-ification.
The Depluty Adm~inistra tor in his final: report to mle on said mlodi-
fkal~tion of said codie having found as herein set forth and on the
basis of all the proIeedlings in this matter:
I: find that:
(a) TIhe mnodification of said coder andt the cod~e as mIod~ified are
w~tell des~igned to promo~te the policies and pur~poses of Title I of the
National Ind'ustr~ial REecoverly Act including g the r~emovazl of ob-
sjtruc~tioln to the free flow of interstate and foreignl commerce which
tend to rliminish the amount thereof, and w~ill pro~cvide for th~e
g~enernI weilfar~e by pr~omiotinlg the organization of industry for the
purpose of cooperative action amI1ong tr'ade grrloups by' inducing
and mallintaining united action of labor and malnagemllent unler ade-
quate grovernm~ent all hanctioni and supervision, by eliminantingr un-
fair compel~titiv-e practices, by promoting the fullest possible utiliza-
tion of the prese~nt produc7~'tive caplacity- of industries, by avoidin
undue restriction of prod~lluctlion (except as mayl~ be temlporarily re-
qu~ired3), by inrcrasingj the consulmption of indlustrial and agricul-
tural procducts through increasing pulcrchasing power, by reducing
andC relieving unemployment, by imp-roving standards of labor, and
by otherwise rehallbiitating industry.
(b) The code~t as mod,;ified~ complies in all res~pc~ts w~ith the perti-
nent provisions of naid Title of said Act, includlingr without limni-
tation sub-section (a) of Section 3, sub-section (:a) of Section 7 and
sub-section (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Code empowers the Code Aulthor~ity' to prlesentf the afore-
said modification on behalf of the Industry as a whole.
(d) The mod~lification and the code as miodified are not designed to
and will not permit monclop.olies or mlonopo~listic practices.
(e6") The modification andi the Code as modified are not designed to
ndwill not eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not
operate to discriminate against them.
(f) Those engaaged in other steps of thze economic process have ]not
been deprived of the right to be heard prior to approval off said
For these reasons this modification hats been approved.
