The W~hite Houztse.
SIR: This is a report on thle Code of Fa`,ir Compe~tition for the.
Metal Hat Die and W~ood Hat Bil;ock Industry in thec Unitedl Satets,
the hearingil b:iing conducted in Wa~shing(-ton, D.C., on Dec~emb~er 8,
11,33, inl necor~lcannee w~ith thz e p,rovislons of the lNatio~nal Indusltr~ial
Rccovery Act.
The maxrimtumz hourls provided~ by the Code for all emlployei, es ecept
travelingj7!. 1alesme, and ex~cuti\(es re~-ceiving $3'.r00 or more per w~eek
is forty (i40) hoursl~- 1 p nier Ee andc e.Ighlt (8) hours per day. No peak;
sea o~n periods and noe other texcep-tionsll thanl those~( nwnitionedcl above
were requested:PI or proidc\ed.
TIIhe minimum wav:lle rafte per hour forl other thatn olffic.- templloyees
is forty (40) recent,. while office eplol-,~ yees will not be paid less than
$14.00 to $15.00 per week! dlepend~ing ulpon p ulal,~~~tion. 1Equitable
adju~stmentsn oft weelI" ra;ltes above the mlin~illlllnon~ are proxided and will
be rep~orated to the Clode Author~ity and the Adtministrator.


Thre minimnum age prouvided~ in this Code is 16 years but in hazard-
ous occupal~tionsl this age limit is inl1cren! dI to 18 year11s.


Employmen`llrt inl this industry hnas not greac~ctly dleclined~ durling_ the
recenIt years due to the facet that .sty-les were r.hanrged~ more fre-
quently in order to stinulalte the milinery: industry to which this
industry~l3 is closely allied. Th~e shorteningr of hlours~ will adequaltelIy
reab~Sorbll the slight unemployment and the increased minimum wage
:rate- accompanied by the equitable adljus~tmelnts provided for in the
Code should fully restore the pur''has~iing powTer of the employees
of this industry which has dclcinedl more thann its production and
wh~ich. must be restor~ed to accomplish the purposes of the Act.
In arriving at the terms expremedc~l in the Code, the Inwmbers~l. i of the
industry have given every evidence otf cooperaLtion in complying with
the spirit of the Act.

The Assistant D~eputy Aldministra~tor in hnis final report to me on
said Code having found as herecin set forth and on the basis of all
the p~rocevelingsJ in this mantte::
I find thlat--
(a) Sa~id Code is well des~igrned to promo~l~te the policies and pur-
pows' of Title I of the National Industrial Recoverya Act, includcing
removal of clb-t mot rionsl to the: free flow of inltelrstate and foreign


conulner~ce whichl tend to dliminish the amount th~er~eof and will pro-
vide for the! general welfare by promolting the organization of indus-
try for the purpose of cooperative: action among t~he trade groups, by
inducing and mnaintainling united actionl of lab~or and management
under adequate gove~rnmenltal sanctions andc supervision, by eliminat-
ing unfairi competitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible
utilization of the present productive capacity of industries, by avoid-
ing undue restriction of production (except as may be temlpor~arily
requiredd, by :increasing the consumption of industrial and agricul-
tural products thr~lough incr~easing purchasing; po-er, by reducing and
relieving unemployment,, by impr~lovmlgr standarnlds of labor, and by
other wise rehabilitating industry.
(b) Said industry normally employs not more than 50,000 em-
ployees and is not classified b~y me as a major industry.
(c) T~he Code as approved complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provisions of said TPitle of said A~ct, including without limita-
tion Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7, and
Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof; and- that the applicant asso-
ciations are industrial associations truly repr~esentative of the afore-
said industry; and that said associations impose no inequitable re-
str~ictions on admission to membership therein.
(d) The Code is not designed to and w~ill not permit monopolies or
monopolistic practices.
(e) The Code is not designed to and will not eliminate or oppress
small enterprises and will not operate to discriminate against them.
(f) Those engaged in other steps of the economic process have
not been deprived of the right to be heard prior to approval of said
Fior these reasons, therefore, this Code has been. approved.
