REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
SIR: An application has been duly made pursuant to and in full
compliance with the provisions of the National Industrial Recovery
Act, for an amendment to the Code of Fair Competition for the
Section 9 of Article II of Chapter I of the Construction Industry
Code purports to enumerate the complete list of the national associa-
tions which had complied with the provisions of that section prior
to the submission of the Code to the President for his approval, and
qualified as sponsors of the Code. As a matter of fact, the omission
of the National Association of Marble Dealers from the list of
sponsors of the Construction Industry Code occurred as a result of
the absence of one of the members of the Code Committee of the
National Association of Marble Dealers at a time when his signa-
ture to a formal assent by the Code Committee of the National
Association of Marble Dealers to the final form of the Construction
Industry Code was necessary to make a record of this Association's
sponsorship of the Construction Industry Code. This Association
had been among the sponsors of the Construction Industry Code
throughout its development and its full Code Committee had signed
forms of assent to all but the final form of the Construction Industry
Code. The purpose of this amendment is to correct this unavoid-
able omission of the National Association of Marble Dealers from the
list of sponsors of the Construction Industry Code in order that
this Association can designate a representative to the Construction
This action is taken with the approval of the Construction Code
Authority as set forth in a resolution approved at its last meeting
held May 4, 1934, reading as follows:
"Resolved, That the Construction Code Authority approves the
proposed amendment of the Construction Code to include the
National Association of Marble Dealers as a sponsor of the Code."
The Division Administrator ih his final report to me on said
amendment to said Code having found as herein set forth and on
the basis of all the proceedings in this matter:
I find that:
(a) The amendment 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 ob-
structions 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 gov-
ernmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair competi-
tive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the
present productive capacity of the industries, by avoiding undue re-
strictions 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
unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
(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, Subsection (a) of Section 7 and
Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) That the aforesaid amendment is necessary to correct an
error in the Code as submitted to the President for his approval.
(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
For these reasons, therefore, I have approved this Amendment.
