REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
SIR: This is a report on an amendment to the Code of Fair Com-
petition for the Rayon and Silk Dyeing and Printing Industry, ap-
proved December 21, 1933. Notice of Opportunity to be Heard on
this amendment was published on February 9, 1935; no objections
were received within the twenty-day period ending March 1, 1935.
The amendment, which is attached, was presented by duly qualified
and authorized representatives of the Industry, complying with

ity under the provisions of the said Code for the said Industry.
Article VI, Section 1, is amended so as to conform with the stand-
ard mandatory assessment clause. The amendment to Article VIII,
Sections 3 and 4, includes in the Code the standard mandatory
assessment clause which has been approved by the Administration.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to the National In-
dustrial Recovery Board on said amendment to said Code having
found as herein set forth, and on the basis of all the proceedings in

(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 pur-
pose of cooperative action among trade groups, by inducing and
maintaining united action of labor and management under adequate
governmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair com-
petitive 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.relieving
unemployment, by improving the standards of labor and by other-
wise rehabilitating industry;
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respect'with the per-
tinent 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.
