REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
SIR: An amendment to the Code of Fair Competition for the
Corset and Brassiere Industry approved August 14, 1933, was pro-
posed by the Code Authority for this Industry. A Notice of Oppor-
tunity to be Heard on the proposed amendment was published March
12, 1935. One objection was received and was duly considered.
Article 9, Section (t), of the Code provides that all garments
manufactured or distributed shall bear N. R. A. labels. This Section
also sets forth certain regulations concerning the issuance and use
of such labels. The amendment proposed is a sentence to be added
to the first paragraph of this Section, and provides that the charge
for labels by the Code Authority shall, at all times, be subject to the
approval of the National Industrial Recovery Board.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to this Board on
said amendment 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 amendment 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 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 organization of industry for the
purpose of cooperative action of labor and management under ade-
quate governmental 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 prod-
ucts through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and reliev-
ing unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and by other-
wise rehabilitating industry.
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limita-
tion 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 amendment on behalf of the Industry as a whole.
(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
For these reasons, this amendment has been approved.
For the National Industrial Recovery Board:
