REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
Sin: This is a report on an amendment to the Code of Fair Com-
petition for the Trucking Industry. The amnendment was submitted
by the National Code Authority for said Industry and wvas pub-
lished on August 10, 1934. Opportunity to file objections was af-
forded to all interested parties, and during the period designated to
permit such opportunity, no objections were received.
In final form this amendment has been approved by the Indus-
trial Advisory Board, the Labor Advisory Board, the Consumers'
Advisory Board, the Research and Planning Division and the Legal
Division of the National Recovery Administration.
The Acting Deputy Administrator in his final report, to me on the
amendment to said Code, having found as herein set forth and on1
the basis of all the proceedings in this matter:
I find that:
(a) The amendment to said Code and the Code as amended arei
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 wel-
fare by promoting the organization of industry for the put.rpose of!
cooperative action among trade groups, by inducing and maintaining
united action of labor and management under adequate governmental
sanction and. supervision, by eliminating unfair competitive practices,
by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the pret4ent produc-
tive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue restriction of produc-
tion (except as may be temporarily required), by increasing the con-
sumption of industrial and agricultural products through increasing
purchasing power, by reducing and relieving unemployment, by im-
proving standards of labor, and by otherwise rehabilitating industry.
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the per-
tinent provisions of said Title of said Act. including without limi-
tation sub-section (a) of Section 3, sub-section (a) of Section 7, and
sub-section (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Code empowers the Code Authority to present the afore-
said amendment on behalf of the Industry as a whole.
(d) The amendment and the Code as amended are not designed to
and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic 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 any other steps of the economic process,
have not been deprived of the right to be heard prior to approval of
For these reasons, this amendment has been approved.
