REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT

SIR: This is a report oh two amendments to the Code of Fair Com-
petition for the Canvas Stitched Belt Manufacturing Industry. The
amendments which are attached were presented by the Code Au-
thority for the Canvas Stitched Belt Manufacturing Industry.
Notice of opportunity to be heard was given all interested parties,
and no objections were received.
One amendment revises the definition of the term Industry to
include the Balata Belt Manufacturing Industry and the other speci-
fies that the weight per commercial yard of cotton duck must be
stated in billing or quoting the price of any standard competitive
grade of canvas stitched belting.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report on said amendments
to said Code having found as herein set forth and on the basis of
all proceedings in this matter;
The National Industrial Recovery Board finds 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 obstruc-
tions 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 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 rehabilitat-
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limita-
ticn 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 amendments on behalf of the Industry as a whole.
(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
For the above reasons these amendments have been approved.
For the National Industrial Recovery Board:
