The White House.
SIR: An application has been duly made pursast to ma in fulH
compliance with the provisions of the National Industrial Recovery .
Act, for an amendment to the Code of Fair Competition for the .. |
Fuller's Earth Producing and hMaketing Industry.
The Deputy Administrator im his final report to me on said
amendment to said Code having found as herein set forth and on
the basis of all the proceedings in this matter:
I find 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 obstruc-
tions to the free flow of interstate 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 purpose of cooperative action among trade groups, by indnciag
and maintaining united action of labor and management, under
adequate governmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating Un-
fair competitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utili-
zati'on of the present productive -capacity of industries, by avoiding
undue restriction of production (except as may be temporarily re-
quired), by increasing the consumption of industrial and agricul-
tural products through increasing purchasing power, by reducing
and relieving unemployment, by improving standards of labor, dand :'
by otherwise rehabilitating industry.
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects wi the pei-ti-
nent provision of said Title of said Act, including without limita-
tion sub-section (a) of Section 3, sulb-section (a) of Section 7 .and
sub-section (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Code empowers the Code Authority to present the aoe r-
said amendment 'on beh-alf 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 i
not been deprived of the right to be heard prior to approval of said I
For these reasons, therefore, I have approved this amendment.
