tion 1; Chapter IV, Article III-A, Section 2: Chapter VII, Article
IV-A, Section 2; Chapter X, Article V-A, Section 1, of the Code of
Fair Competition for the Rubber Maniufacturing Industry be and
the .-.me are hereby stayed indefinitely pending the submission by
.the Code Authority within thirty (30) days of amendments deleting
caid provisions from said Code and making applicable in lieu thereof
the provi.-ions of Chapter I, Article VII-A; provided that the appli-
cation of said provisions of Clhapter I, Article VII-A, is construed
not to prohibit any member of the Indu-try from selling below his
own individual cost in good faith in order to meet the competition
of any other member."
Pursuant to the above-mentioned provision the Code Authority on
October 25, 1934 duly submitted a aniendmnent to carry out. the
requiremeniits of said Order. The effect of this amendment is to
delete from the several Chapters mentioned, the '" Representative

Order 156-37, which are substantially that no member of the In-
dustry shall initiate a sale below his own individual cost as deter-
mined by the Approved Accounting Manual except. to meet in good
faith the competition of any other member.

FINDINGS

The Assistant Deputy Administrator in his final report on said
amendment of said Code having found as herein set. forth and on
the basis of all proceedings in this matter:
The Board finds that:
(a) The amendment of 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
ob-tructions 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 of labor and management under
adequate governmental sanction and supervision by eliminating un-
fair competitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utili-
zation 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 agricul-
tural products through increasing purchasing power, by reducing
and relieving unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and
by otherwise rehabilitating industry.
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limita-
tion subsection (a) of Section 3, s1ub-ection (a) of Section 7 and
subsection (b) of Section 10, thereof.
(c) The Code empowers the Code Authority to present, the afore-
said amendment on behalf of these Divisions (referring to industry
divisions already mentioned) of the Industry upon the recommenda-
tion of the respective Divisional Authorities after the approval of
the majority of the Divisional Code members in number and volume.
(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 other steps of the economic process have not
been deprived of the right to be heard prior to approval of said
amendment. For this rea-son this amendment has been approved.
For the National Industrial Recovery Board:
W. A. HARRIMAN,
AmiJ ~ fi.strativ, Officer.
