ORDER
APPROVING AMENDMENT TO CODE OF FAIR
COMPETITION
FOR THE

CANNING AND PACKING MACHINERY INDUSTRY

An application having been duly made pursuant to and in full
compliance with the provisions of Title I, of the National Indus-
trial Recovery Act approved June 16, 1933, for approval of amend-
ments to a Code of Fair Competition for the Canning and Packing

NOW, THEREFORE, on behalf of the President of the United
States, I, Hugh S. Johnson, Administrator for Industrial Recovery,
pursuant to authority vested in me by Executive Orders of the Presi-
dent, including Executive Order No. 6543-A, dated December 30,
1933, and otherwise; do hereby incorporate, by reference, said
annexed report and do find that said amendments and the Code as

tinent provisions and will promote the policy and purposes of said
Title of said Act, and do hereby order that said amendments be and

The PRESIDENT,
The WJhite House,
SIR: This is the report of the Amendments to the Code of Fair
Competition of the Canning and Packing Machinery Industry to
permit the inclusion of another industrial group, the hearing having
been held in Washington on the 7th day of December, 1933, in
accordance with the provisions of the National Industrial Recovery
Act.
PROVISIONS AS TO HOURS AND WAGES

The provisions of the Code have not been altered as to hours and
wages from the provisions as adopted in the Code as signed on
October 31, 1933. The Meat Packing and Allied Products Mach-
inery and Equipment group will work under the labor provisions of
this Code as a part of this Industry.

ECONOMIC EFFECT OF THE AMENDMENTS

Under normal conditions in this industrial group the work week
averaged 4- hours. Operation on the shortened schedule of hours,
as provided in the Code, will result in an increase of 16 percent in
the number of employees, or a total for the group of 696. This
brings the total number of employees in the Canning and Packing
Machinery Industry up to approximately 2,200.
This industrial group manufactures machinery which is used in
the processing and preserving of animal products for food. Invested
capital is $2,500,000 and the five-year annual average value of its
products is $3,500,000. The value of products of the Canning and
Packing Machinery Industry on the above average basis now totals
$7,000,000.
FINDINGS
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said
amendments 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 amendments 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
obstructions 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 maintaining united action of labor and management under ade-
quate governmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair
competitive practices. by promoting the fullest possible utilization







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 agricultural prod-
ucts 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, Subsection (a) of Section 7 and
Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Meat Packing and Allied Products Machinery and
Equipment group was and is an industrial group truly representa-
tive of the aforesaid Industry and that said group imposed and
imposes no inequitable restrictions on admission to membership
therein and has applied for or consents to these amendments.
(d) The amendments and the Code as amended are not designed
to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The amendments 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
amendments.
For these reasons, therefore, the amendments to this Code have
been approved by me.
Respectfully,
HUGH S. JOHNSON,
Adm inistrator,
JANUARY 27, 1934.
