REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
SIR: This is a report on the Hearing on the Amendments to the :
Code of Fair Competition for the Underwear and Allied Products.
Manufacturing Industry, held in the Oak Room of the Raleigh Hotel,
Washington, D.C., January 19, 1934. The Amendments, which are
attached, were presented by duly qualified and authorized representa-
tives of the Industry, complying with statutory requirements and
being the same agency that originally submitted the Code.
In accordance with customary procedure every person who had
filed a request for an appearance was freely heard in public, and
all statutory and regulatory requirements were complied with.
PROVISIONS OF THE AMENDMENTS
There are two amendments as follows:
1. An amendment providing that production data returns be re-
ported every month instead of every four weeks.
2. An amendment specifying that all persons engaged in the In-
dustry assenting to and complying with the provisions of the Code
shall pay their pro rata share of administering the Code.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said amend-
ments 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 amendments 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 obstruct
tions to the free flow of interstate and foreign commerce which tend
to diminish the amount thereof, and will provide for the general wel-
fare by promoting the organization of industry for the purpose of
cooperative action among trade groups, by inducing and maintaining
united action of labor and management under adequate govern- ::.
mental 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 products through
increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving unemploy-
ment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise rehabilitat-.
(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 Underwear Institute was and is an industrial association
| truly representative of the aforesaid Industry and that said associ-
S ation imposed and imposes no inequitable restrictions on admission
: to membership therein and has applied for or consents to these
(d) The amendments and the Code as amended are not designed
S to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The amendments and the Code as amended are not designed to
pi+ and will not eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not
I Operate to discriminate against them.
.. : (f) Those engaged in other steps of the economic process have
Snot been deprived of the right to be heard prior to approval of said
:; For these reasons these amendments have been approved.
