REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT

SIR: The Code Authority for the Dress Manufacturing Industry
has submitted two proposed amendments to the Code of Fair Com-
petition for the Dress Manufacturing Industry. These amendments
were examined and approved by the Legal Division, the Division of
Research and Planning, the Consumers, Industrial and Labor Ad-
A Public Hearing was held on December 13, 1934, relative to these
amendments and every person requesting a hearing was fairly heard
in accordance with the rules and regulations of the National Re-
The first amendment classifies Colorado, Kansas and Utah in the
Northern Section of the Western Area and clarifies the definition of
this section of the Code.
The second amendment eliminates the necessity of the Code Au-
thority providing rules and regulations to distinguish between
"higher priced garments and "lower priced garments."
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to the National
Industrial Recovery Board on said amendments to said Code having
found as herein set forth and on the basis of all proceedings in this
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 Recovery Act, including the removal of obstructions to the
free flow of interstate and foreign commerce which tend to diminish
the amount thereof, and will provide for the purpose of cooperative
action of labor and management under adequate governmental sanc-
tions, 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 con-
sumption of industrial and agricultural products through'increased
purchasing power, by reducing and relieving unemployment, by
improving standards of labor, and by otherwise rehabilitating
(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 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 the effective date
of these amendments.
For the National Industrial Recovery Board:
W. HAR RMAN,
