SIR: A Public Hearing on an amendment to the Code of Fair
Competition for the Umbrella Manufacturing Industry, submitted
by the National Association of Umbrella Manufacturers, Inc., lo-
cated at 230 Park Avenue. New York, N.Y., was conducted in Wash-
ington on January 18, 1934, in accordance with the provisions of the
National Industrial Recovery Act. The Association claims to rep-
resent 80 percent of the Industry.

is to be issued by the Planning ;and Fair Practice Agency for the
industry and a fair and rea-onable charge to be made therefore which

derived from the salo of these labels will be used in maintaining the
Planning and Fair Practice Agency.
The.-Deputy Administrat or in hii. final report to me on said amend-
ment to said Code having found as herein set forth and on the basis
of all the proceeding, in this matter:
I find that-
(a) The amendment to maid ICode 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 gen-
eral welfare by promoting the organlizatio:i of industry' for the pur-
pose of cooperative action alnog trade groups, by inducing and
maintaining united action of labor and management under adequate
governmental sanction anld supervision, by eliminating unfair com-
petitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of
tlF present productive capacity of the industries, by avoiding undue
restrictions of production (except as may be teml)orarily required),
by increasing the consunlmption of industrial and agricultural prod-
ucts through increa-ing purclhaing power, by reducing and relieving
unemployment, by impl'1roving standards of labor, and by otherwise
(b) The Code as amended complies in all resp)ects with the perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limita-
tion Subsection (:i) of Section :3. Subsection (a) of Section 7, and
Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The National Association of Umbrella Mlnufun:'tirer. Inc.
was and is an industrial association truly representative of the
aforesaid industry and that said association imposed and imposes
no inequitable restrictions on admission to membership therein and
has applied for or consents to this amendment.
(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
(g) For these reasons therefore, this amendment has been

under which they were manufactured. Under the powers vested in
the Administrator by the Executive Order of October 14, 1933, and
under grant of the necessary authority by the Administrator, the
Planning and Fair Practice Agency shall have the exclusive right
in this industry to propose. issue, furnish or cause to be proposed,

when sold by the manufacturer. No member of the Industry shall
use any label symbolic of compliance with this Code, other than that
supplied by the Planning and Fair Practice Agency. Any and all
members of the Industry may apply to the Planning and Fair Prac-
tice Agenmy for a permit to use such N.R.A. label, which permit to
use the label shall be granted to them, but only if and so long as they
comply with this Code. Through such permit any member of this
industry may obtain for his own and exclusive use such N.R.A. labels
as lie may require for his own production. The Planning and Fair
Prnatie Agency, subject to the approval of the Administrator, shall
establish rules and regulations and appropriate machinery for the
issuance of labels and the inspection, examination and supervision of
the practices of members of the industry using such labels in observ-
ing the provisions of this Code for the purpose of ascertaining the
right of said member to the continued use of said labels; of protect-
ing purchasers in relying on said labels; of insuring to each individ-
ual member of the industry that the symbolism of said label will be
maintained by virtue of compliance with the practices herein
contained by all other members using said label.
The issuance, withdrawal, and charge made for such labels by
the Planning and Fair Practice Agency shall at all times be subject
to supervision and order of the Administrator and the charge made
therefore shall be not. more than an amount necessary to cover the
actual reasonable cost thereof, including actual printing, distribution,
and administration and supervision of the use thereof as hereinabove
set forth, and in no event to be in excess of 1 cent (1o) each.
The Planning and Fair Practice Agency is hereby authorized to
petition the Administrator for the issuance of such a iinini.strative
order as may be required for the proper enforcement of this
