The Whi~te Hozwe.
SIR: This is a report on the C'ode of Fair C'ompetitio~n proposed
for the Railway Safety Appliance Indlustryv and on the hearing
conducted thereonl in W\ashington,i D.C., on October 11. 1933, in
accordafnce w~ith the prov-isions of the National Indlust rial Recovery

Thie Code pr~ovides that 8 hours shall constitute thle normal number
of workI~ling hou~rs per day\, and 40 hours the normal Ilnumber of work-
ing hours per week. andl th~at employees shall not be permritted to
work in excess of an. ave~rag~e of 40 ho~ur~s per w~eek in anly 4 months'
period, the first of which periodrs shall begin con thle effective date
of the Codle. These pr~ovisions are applicable to all1 employees except
traveling salesme~n, outside service mnen, w~atchmien. who may be per-
mitted to work 56 hours per week, and persolns employedl in mana-
gerial. executive, or technical work recei\nn not les~s than $35.00 per
The minimum ra;tes of pay prov\idedl for pr~oductionl labor are 40
cents per hour for men and 33 cents per hour for womlen, and
where w-omen~ replace mlenl such women shall1 r~eceive the same rates
of pay as received by the men so replaced. Timef andt one half shall
be paid production employees for each hour! w-orked~ in excess of 8
hours per day or 4l0 hours per wetek.
All others emp~loyees are to be paid not less thanl $15.0`0 pler week,
except that a limited~ :runumer of I~learers andt office boy~s or girls
may be paid not le s than 80 perrIcent of the abov-e minimla.
Equitable adjus~tments4 are to be marde of all wng~e rates above
881d H11111m.
Child labor is pr(,hib~itedl andc no IIT81 pelrso ler 18 ear~s of Rge
shall be em~ployed inl hazalrdlous occupations.


The: R~ailw-ay Safety App~lianl~e Manullrfac~tui 1rin Im111.lustr iS a capi-
tal g~oodls industry. It comprises the design. development, manu-
facture, sale., and installation of power~~ branke, signal andl train-
control systtem-, and parts. Its p~ro~ducts are dlesigned for the safe-
gu~nringrl of movements of cars, locomnotive~s. or trains. Its sin gle
endownerl~l, theretfore. is the Rtailwayvs, which~ customarily plaee orders
on their ow~n initiative as the needrt for equiipmenrrt arises, rather than
upon colic~itartion by membe~tr of the Industry.

The investment inl thle Ind~ustry. is ap~r~oximately $113,000,000,
and the number of wage earner~s in norma~n times abloult 1`1,000 per-
sons, with an estimated annual pay roll of $20,000,000.
In 1928, which is considered. a normal year, operation was at the
rate of approximately 54 p~er~cent of capacity, with a value of pro-
duction of about $45,000,000. Operantion in 1929 was about 68 pe;r-
cent of capacity; in '1930)-57 percent; in 1931--30 percent; and i
1932--20 percent. The estimate for 1933 is about 11 percent of
Orders for repair and ma~intenanlce of parts whlich, in. a normal.
year, amount to a~pprloxima;telyI 15 p~erent of the total volume
of production, inl 1933 hlave retpr~esenlted about 95 percent of the
volume of production. Newr inistallation buslinessc is nolticipated
in 19341 which w~ill add mensurnlyn,! both to the number of employees
and the pay.7 rolls of thle Industry.
I believed that the Code is fairi to Induslltry, to Labor, and to the
Public, and is in acc~or~dance with thec intent and purpolcse of the
National Indust~rial Recovery~ Act.
The Deputy' Admrinis~tlrator, 1 in! his finall report to me on said Code
having found as herein iset fourth and- on the basic; of all the p3ro-
ceedingas inl this matter:
I: find that--
(a) Said Code is well designledl to promote the policies andZ pur-
poses of TCitle I of thre National Industrial Recovery Act, including
r~emnoval of obstructions to the free flow of interstate and foreign
commel~rc~e wRhich tend to tlimlinii h the amount thereof and will pr'o-
vide for the general welfare by promlotin~g the organization of in-
dustry for the purpose of cooperative action among the trade groups,
byT inducing and maintaining united action of labor a~nd management
under adequate goverrunelntal sanctions and superv\ision, by elimninat-
.ing unfair complettitve prnc~tices, by promoting the fullest possible
utilization of the present productive enpacit!y of industcfries, by avoid-
ing undue restriction of plcclrodc~tion (exscep~t as may be tem~poranrily
requir~ed), by incr~easing the consumption of industrial and agricul-
tural products through increasingly~ pr~ch~acing power, by reducling and
reliev\inrg ull~nemlo yment,~lt by improvingr standards of labor, and by
otherwise rehab~ilitaltingr industry.
(b) Said Industry normally employs not more than 50,000 em-
ployees; and is not classifiedl by me as a major industry.
(c) The Code as approved complies in all resplects wTithl the perti-
nont prIovisionls of said Title of said Act, i nc~l ud-i ng without limitation
Subsection (a) of Section 3, Sulbsection (a) of Section 7, atnd Sub-
section (b) of Section 10 thereof ; and that the applicant group is
an indlustr~ial group truly reree~~sentftativ of the aforetsaid Industry;
and that said group imposes no inlequitable restrictions on admission
to membership th~erein.
(d) The Code is not designedc to and will not pclrm~it monopolies
nor monop~olist~ic 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 engagedl in other steps of the economic process have not
been de~pr~ived~ of ther righlt tol be hlea rd prior to approval of said Code.
For these reaso~ns, therecforec, I have approved this Code.
