REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
SIR: This is a report on a modification of the Code of Fair Com-
petition for the Construction Industry which was approved by you
on January 31, 1934.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said modi-
fication of said Code having found as herein set forth and on the
basis of all the proceedings in this matter:
I find that:
(a) The modification of said Code as modified is well designed
to promote the policies and purposes of Title I of the National
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 wel-
fare by promoting the organization of industry for the purpose of
cooperative action among trade groups, by inducing and maintain-
ing united 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 the industries, by avoiding undue restrictions
of production (except as may be temporarily required), by increas-
ing 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-
(b) The Code as modified 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) The Code empowers the Code Authority to present the afore-
said modification on behalf of the industry as a whole.
(d) The modification and the Code as modified are not designed
to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The modification and the Code as modified 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 this modification has been approved.
