REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT


The PRESIDENT,
The White House.
SIR: This is a report on an amendment of Article V of the Supple-
mentary Code of Fair Competition for the Vitreous Enameled Ware
Manufacturing Industry. The amendment is designed to eliminate
Rule A of Article V pertaining to the pricing provisions.
A Notice of Opportunity to be Heard, dated March 6, 1935, has
been duly afforded to all interested parties.
The Supplementary Code Authority for the Vitreous Enameled
Ware Manufacturing Industry has proposed the present amend-
ment for the reason that the members of the Industry have found
that the provisions of Rule A of Article V are impractical in opera-
tion in the Vitreous Enameled Ware Manufacturing Industry.
FINDINGS
The Assistant Deputy Administrator in his final report to the Na-
tional Industrial Recovery Board on said amendment to said Supple-
mentary Code, having found as herein set forth and on the basis of
all proceedings in this matter.
"It has been found that:
"(a) The amendment to said Supplementary Code, and the Sup-
plementary 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 inter-
state 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 purposes of cooperative action of
labor and management under adequate governmental sanction and
supervision, by eliminating unfair competitive practices, by promot-
ing the fullest possible utilization of the present productive capacity
of Industry, and by avoiding undue restriction of products (except
as may be temporarily required) by increasing the consumption of
industrial and agricultural products through increasing purchasing
power, by reducing and relieving unemployment, by improving
standards of labor and by otherwise rehabilitating Industry.
"(b) The Supplementary Code as amended complies in all re-
spects with the pertinent provisions of said Title of said Act, in-
cluding, without limitation, Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection
(a) of Section 7 and Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Supplementary Code empowers the Supplementary Code
Authority to present the aforesaid amendment on behalf of the In-
dustry as a whole.
"(d) The amendment, and the Supplementary Code as amended,
are not designed to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic
practices.





3

"(e) The amendment and the Supplementary Code as amended,
are not designed to and will not eliminate or oppress small enter-
prises 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 the approval of
said amendment."
For these reasons, therefore, the Board has approved this
amendment.
For the National Industrial Recovery Board:
W. A. HARRIMAN,
AAdministrative Officer.

AMENDMENT TO SUPPLEMENTARY CODE OF FAIR
COMPETITION FOR THE VITREOUS ENAMELED WARE
MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY
A DIVISION OF THE FABRICATED METAL PRODUCTS MANUFACTURING AND
METAL FINISHING AND METAL COATING INDUSTRY

Delete Rule A of Article V, which reads as follows:
RULE A. No products of the Industry, in whole or in part, shall
be sold or exchanged or offered for sale or exchange at prices less
than the seller's cost of such products; such cost to be based on a
formula which shall be at least as detailed and complete as the for-
mula to be prepared by the Supplementary Code Authority and
approved by the Administrator. Provided, however, that if any
member of the Industry desires to sell below his cost in order to meet
competitive prices on articles of similar style, grade and/or specifica-
tion filed in accordance with the provisions of this Section, he shall
first report to the agent of the Supplementary Code Authority and
in such report cite the competition that would cause him to take
such action. This revised price and/or condition of sale shall become
effective immediately upon receipt thereof by said agent. Immedi-
ately upon receipt thereof said agent shall, by telegraph or by some
other equally prompt means, notify said member of the time of such
receipt.
"When the Supplementary Code Authority determines that an
emergency exists in this Industry and that the cause thereof is de-
structive price-cutting such as to render ineffective or seriously en-
danger the maintenance of the provisions of this Supplementary
Code, The Supplementary Code Authority may cause to be deter-
mined the lowest reasonable cost of the products of this Industry,
such determination to be subject to such notice and hearing as the
Administrator may require. The Administrator may approve, dis-
approve, or modify the determination. Thereafter, during the pe-
riod of emergency, it shall be an unfair trade practice for any
member of the Industry to sell or offer to sell any products" of the
Industry for which the lowest reasonable cost has been determined
at such prices or upon such terms and conditions of sale that the
buyer will pay less therefore than the lowest reasonable cost of such
products.
"When it appears that conditions have changed, the Supplementary
Code Authority, upon its own initiative or upon the request of any
interested party, shall cause the determination to be reviewed.
"All members of the Industry shall, within ten (10) days after
the effective date of this Supplementary Code publish for the benefit
of all wholesalers and manufacturers of enameled ware and file with
the Agent of the Supplementary Code Authority, net price lists







and/or price lists and discount sheets, including terms, and other
conditions at which they will sell the products of the Industry to
the recognized wholesale distributors.
"Revised price lists and/or discount sheets and/or all other con-
ditions of sale may be filed from time to time thereafter with the
Agent of the Supplementary Code Authority by any member of
the Industry, to become effective ten (10) days after actual receipt
by the Agent of the Supplementary Code Authority. Copies of such
original price lists and revised lists and/or discount sheets and/or all
other conditions of sale, with notice of the effective date thereof, shall
be immediately sent to all members of the Industry, and shall be
available to all interested parties; and any member of the Industry
may file, if he so desires, revisions of his price list and/or discount
sheets and/or conditions of sale, which shall become effective at
the date when the revised list first filed becomes effective.
In the event that the Supplementary Code Authority shall find
that competitive conditions in the sale of the products of the Industry
to any one or more of the various classes of trade, have resulted in
improper price cutting or other unfair competitive practices, it may,
with the approval of the Administrator, require the filing of net
price lists and 'or discount sheets by all members of the Industry,
setting forth the prices, terms, bases of delivery and other condi-
tions at which they will sell the products of the Industry to such other
class or classes of trade. The manner and effect of such filing shall
be the same in all respects as set forth in the two (2) preceding para-
graphs.
When filing net price lists and/or price lists and discount sheets,
as set forth in this Rule A, each member of the Industry shall file
with the Agent of the Supplementary Code Authority the number
of such price lists and/or price lists and discount sheets required by
him for the purpose set forth in this Rule.
"The sale of dropped lines, or inventories which must be con-
verted into cash to meet emergency needs may be made by any
member of the Industry upon two weeks' notice of intention to do
so, in writing, to the Supplementary Code Authority setting forth
the facts and the reasons for such proposed disposal. If any member
of the Industry shall within six months after any such disposal,
manufacture any product which he has classified as a dropped line,
the emergency sale of such product below cost shall be deemed prima
facie to have been in violation of this Supplementary Code.
"No member of the Industry shall sell or offer to sell directly by
any means whatsoever, any products of the Industry, covered by
provisions of this Article V, at a price or at discounts or on other
conditions of sale more favorable than those provided in his own
current net price lists or price lists and discount sheets".
