REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT


The PRESIDENT,
The White House.
SIR: This is a report on an amendment to Article VIII of the Code
of Fair Competition for the Beverage Dispensing Equipment. In-
dustry, submitted by the Code Authority in accordance with Article
IX of the Code as approved on March 16, 1934, and now approved
by the National Industrial Recovery Board.
This amendment is intended by the Code Authority to put an end
to unfair competitive conditions in the Industry which recently have
developed. It is designed to prevent the copying of, and the making
of bids and estimates from, the plans, specifications, and/or elevations
or drawings, of Industry members without their consent, and to cor-
rect an emergency situation, brought about by the announced inten-
tion of the largest member of the Industry to itself absorb all
financing charges rather than pass them along to customers buying on
installment terms, by requiring the addition of a minimum financing
charge to cash prices whenever installment payments are allowed.
This amendment was submitted by the Code Authority on March
16, 1934, and, a Public Hearing on it and other proposals having been
held on July 21, 1934, has now been revised in accordance with sug-
gestions made by the various advisory boards and divisions at a post-
hearing conference, April 2, 1935.

FINDINGS
The Acting Assistant Deputy Administrator in his final report to
the National Industrial Recovery Board on said amendment to said
Code found as herein set forth, and on the basis of all the proceedings
in this matter, we find that:
(a) The trade practices described above do exist in the Industry
and have resulted in an unfair competitive situation demanding
relief.
(b) The amendment as approved is well designed to relieve this
situation.
(c) The amendment to said Code and the Code as amended are well
designed to promote the policies and purposes of Title I of the Na-
tional Industrial Recovery Act including the removal of obstructions
to the free flow of interstate and foreign commerce which tend to
diminish the amount thereof, and will provide for the general welfare.
by promoting the organization of industry for the purpose of co-
operative action of labor and management under adequate govern-
mental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair competitive
practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the present
productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue restriction of
production (except as may be temporarily required), by increasing








the consumption of industrial and agricultural products through
increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving unemploy-
ment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise rehabilitat-
ing industry.
(d) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the pertinent
provision of said title of said act, including without limitation sub-
section (a) of section 3, subsection (a) of section 7 and sub-ection (b)
of section 10 thereof.
(e) The Code empowers the Code Authority to present the aforesaid
amendment on behalf of the Industry as a whole.
(f) The amendment and the Code as amended are not designed to
and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(g) The amendment and the Code as amended are not designed to
and will not eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not oper-
ate to discriminate against them.
(h) Those engaged in other steps of the economic process have not
been deprived of the right to be heard prior to approval of said
amendment.
For these reasons, therefore, this amendment has been approved.
For the National Industrial Recovery Board:
W. A. HARRIMAN,
Administrative Officer.
MAY 11, 1935.

rity of notes or other evidence of indebtedness.
Any contract for the sale or transfer of any product of the industry

transaction, and shall be subject to all rules or provisions governing
installment sales contained in this Code.
