REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The Wh~l~ite HEouse.
SmR: The Code Atuthority for the Code of Fair Competition for
the Women's Belt Industry has submitted a proposed amendment to
this Code. AQfter conlferrmg with mercmbers of the Code Authority
anld representatives of the various Advisory Boards of the National
Recovery Administration, notice of opportunity to be heard, dtatedt
October 27, 1934, was published and distributed to all members of
the Industry, said notice having expired on NSovember 16, 1934, with
no criticisms of, objections to, or suggestions having been submrittedl
to the Natio~nal Recover~y Atdministration.
This amendment amends the Code by deleting from Article V
subsection 8 of Section B and by adding a new Article designat~ed
as Article VIII and entitled "As~sessme~nts ", Sections 1, 2 and 3.
Deletion of said subsection 8 was requres-ted by the Code Authorit~y
for the Industry at the time of submission of the a m en dmle nt f o r
approval because of its inconlsistenlcy wnith the new Art icle VIII.
This new A~rticle VIII: is dlesigned to authorized the Code Auth~orityr
to incur suchl reasonable obligations as are necessary for the purpose
of carrying out its functions and duties, to submit to the National
Industrial Recove~ry Board an itemized Budg~et and anr equitable
basis upon which necessary funds shall be contributed by members
of the Industry and, if necessary, to institute in its own name legal
proceedings for the collection of such funds after approvl~ of such
Budget and basis of contribution.
The amendment also provides that subject to National Recovery
~Administration rules and regulations each. member of the Industry
shall pay an equitable contribution, and unless such is paid he or Irt
shall not be entitled to participate in th~e selection of Code Aulthority
members, to receive benefit of Code ~Authority- activities, nor to makle
use of any National Re~covery ALdministration emblem or insignia.
The amendment further provides that the Code Authority s~hall
neither incur nor pay an~y obligations in exrcess of the amount est~i-
mated in thre approved Budget and that no subsequent B3udget shall
contain the deficiency items for expenditures in excess of prior bud-
get estimates except as the National Industrial Recovery Boa0rd
shall have approved.
WhP~ile considering this amendment thes ~National Industrial Re-
covery Board found that two other sections of the Code as originally
approved would be inconsistent wc~ith this amendment. Since these
two other sections would be no longer necessary for the purpose of
the Code, and might easily be removed without makingany sub-
stantial change in the Code, they were stayed by teOdrapprov-
ing said amendment.
The DeputT ~Administrator, i~n his final report to thne National
Industrial RecoveryT Board on thet am-~endment,~l to said Code, having
found as herein set forth and on. the basis of all procteedings in th~is
It finds that:
(a) The amendment to said Code and the Code as amuend-ed are
well designed to promote the policies and purposes of Title I: of th-e
National Industrial Recovery Act including the remova~,\l of obstruc-
tions to the free flow of interstate and foreign commerce which tecnd
to diminish the amount thereof, and will provide for thne general
welfare by promoting the organization of industry for the purpose of
the cooperative action of labor and management under adequate
govermental sanctions and supervision, by eliminating unfair coml-
petitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the
present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue rest~ric-
tion of production (except as mary be temporarily required), by in-
creasing the consumption of industrial and agricultural products
through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving un-'
employment, by imnpro~vin~g standards of labor, and by otherwise
(b) The Code as amended complied in all respects with the per-
tinent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limnita-
tion Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7, and
Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Code empowoers the Code Authority to present thne afore-
said ammencilent on behalf of the Industry as a whole.
(d) The amendment to the Code as amended is not designed to
and will not permit m~ono~polies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The amendment and the Code as amenderld are nrot designed to
and will lnot eliminate or oppress small enterprises and wGill not oper-
ate 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
F~or these reasons, this amendment- has been approved.
