Auguust 4, 1934.
REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
I The White House.
Sm: A proposed modification to the Code of Fair Competition for
the Upholstery Spring and Accessories Manufacturing Industry was
submitted to the National Recovery Administration on May 19, 1934,
by the Upholstery Spring and Accessories Manufacturers' Associa-
tion, Inc., in accordance with Article XIII of said Code approved on
March 10, 1931.
This modification of the Code was submitted to the Legal Division
and at their suggestion the modification was revised and resubmitted
on June 7, 1934, in its present form for approval.
Notice of Opportunity to be Heard prior to July 21, 1934, was
published on July 9, 1934. No requests for hearing were filed.
This modification of the Code provides for the submission of a
Budget and equitable Basis of Assessment and the collection of such
assessment to cover the expenses of Code administration.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said modifi-
cation 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 and the Code as modified are
well designed to promote the policies and purposes of Title I of the
National Industrial Act, including the removal of obstructions to
the free flow of interstate and foreign commerce which tend to dimin-
ish the amount thereof, and will provide for the general welfare
by promoting the organization of Industry for the purpose of coop-
erative action among trade groups by inducing and maintaining
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 industries, by avoiding undue restriction 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 unemploy-
ment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise rehabili-
(b) The Code as modified complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limita-
tion sub-section (a) of Section 3, sub-section (a) of Section 7 and
sub-section (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Upholstery Spring and Accessories Manufacturers' Asso-
ciation, Inc., was and is an industrial association, truly representative
of the aforesaid Industry and said Association imposed and imposes
no inequitable restrictions on admission to membership therein and
has applied for this modification.
(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, therefore, I have approved the modification
of the Upholstery Spring and Accessories Manufacturing Industry
