SIR: A public hearing was called on April 10, 1935, to discuss
amendments to the Code of Fair Competition for the Blouse and
Skirt Manufacturing Industries, on which date the amendments
herein contained were properly heard.
There have been no material changes in the amendments as first

Article V, Section 1 is amended to add a new paragraph, (f),
which states in effect that the Code Authority shall not be partners.
Article V, Section 1 (a) is amended by adding three sentences, which
provide for the election of alternate members of the Code Author-
ity. Article VII is amended by adding a new section, (m), and
re-lettering the present section (m) to (n), which provides in effect
that no member of the industry may sell merchandise to anyone
except wholesale or retail distributors.

pose of cooperative action of labor and management under adequate
governmental sanctions and supervision, by eliminating unfair com-
petitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the
present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue restric-
tion of production (except as may be temporarily required), by in-
creasing the consumption of industrial and agricultural products
through increased purchasing power, by reducing and relieving
unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the per-

Subsection (b) of Section 10, thereof.

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.

to and will not eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not
operate to discriminate against them.

have been deprived of the right to. be heard prior to the effective
date of these amendments.

AMENDMENT TO CODE OF FAIR COMPETITION FOR
THE BLOUSE AND SKIRT MANUFACTURING INDUS-
Article V, Section 1 (a), of the Code of Fair Competition for the
Blouse and Skirt Manufacturing Industries is hereby amended by
adding thereto the following three sentences:
In addition thereto, there may be a specific alternate member for .
each of the members of the Code Authority. Each alternate mem-
ber shall be selected in the same fashion as is the member for whom
he is an alternate. Each alternate member shall act and vote only
in the absence of the member for whom he is an alternate.
Article V, Section 1, of the Code of Fair Competition for the
Blouse and Skirt Manufacturing Industries shall be amended by
adding thereto a new paragraph, to be designated as (f), reading
Nothing contained in this Code shall constitute the members of
the Code Authority partners for any purpose. Nor shall any mem-
ber of the Code Authority be liable in any manner to anyone for
any act of any other member, officer, agent, of employee of the
Code Authority. Nor shall any member of the Code Authority,
exercising reasonable diligence in the conduct of his duties here-
under, be liable to anyone for any action or omission to act under
this Code, except for his own wilful malfeasance or non-feasance.
Article VII, of the Code of Fair Competition of the Blouse and
Skirt Manufacturing Industries, shall be amended by adding thereto
a new section (m) and relettering the present section (m) to section
(n). The new section (m) will read as follows:
No members of the Blouse and Skirt Manufacturing Industries
normally selling to the trade for resale, may sell merchandise to
anyone except to wholesale or retail distributors. This shall not
prevent, however, bona fide sales by members to their own employees
of merchandise which is for the personal use of such employees,
or to retail buyers at not less than the regular wholesale prices, pro-
vided the buyers are employed in the department in which the mer-
chandise of the member of the industry is usually sold. Nor shall
this prevent members of the industry from selling at retail provided
such sales are made through a separate retail or mail order estab-
lishment operated by them, and notice of such operations has been
given to the Code Authority.
