REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
SIR: An application having been duly made pursuant to and in
full compliance with the provisions of the National Industrial Re-
covery Act, for an amendment to the Code of Fair Competition for
the Grinding Wheel Industry, submitted in part by the Code Au-
thority for the Grinding Wheel Industry and in part by the Na-
tional Recovery Administration.
The purpose and effect of the Code Authority's proposal is to pro-
hibit the placing of consignment stocks with machine manufacturers
and consumers. The amendments proposed by the National Re-
covery Administration are designed to clarify specific provisions
of the Code.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to us on said amend-
Inient to said Code having found as herein set forth and on the
basis of all the proceedings in this matter:
We find that:
(a) The amendinment to said Code and the Code as amended are
well designed to promote the policies and purposes of Title I of the
National Industrial Recovery Act including the removal of obstruc-
tions 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 cooperative action among Trade Groups by inducing and main-
taining united action of labor and management under adequate
governmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair com-
petitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of
the present productive capacity of the industries, by avoiding undue
restriction of production (except as may be temporarily required),
by increasing the consumption of industrial and agricultural prod-
ucts through iniTre.a-ing purchasing power, by reducing and reliev-
ing unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and by other
wise rehabilitating industry.
(b) The Code :;i amended complies in all respects with the
pertinent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without
limitation Siubsi)ction (a) of Section 3, Suibsection (a) of Section
7, and Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Code empowers the Code Authority to present the afore-
said iiiirndmijlcnt on bhailf of the industry as a whole.
(d) The aiimndimriiit and the Code as amended are not designed to
and will not pe1rmiit iumonopolies or nlmonopolistic practices.
(e) The amendment and the Code as amended are 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
For these reasons, therefore, we have approved this amendment.
For the National Industrial Recovery Board:
W. A. HAr M1AN,
Adminl tr'ative Officer.
