REPORT TO THE .PRESIDE NTh
The PmRESIDEFT, iA
The White House.
SIR: The Public Hearing on a proposed amendment to the Code of
Fair Competition for the Mens NK earwr, Industry was conducted on::.
Thursday, May 10th in Boom'109 of the Raleigh iHotel" Washington, "
D.C. Present at the hearing were members and duly authorized;.'
representatives of the Men's Neckwear Code Authority, as well iti::
representatives of individual members of the Men's Neckwear In-
dustry who had requested opportunity to be heard on the proposed ?
amendment. All those present were fairly heard in accordance with
the usual requirements of the National Recovery Administration.
and were questioned by the Deputy Administrator and his adviscaAo :
The Code for the Men's Neckwear Industry as approved on March
24, 1934, did not contain a provision requiring that a special N.14 "I
label be attached to the products of the Industry as the major itjy
of other Codes in the Apparel Trades have required. :.
The Code Authority for the Men's Neckwear Industry onr A"
14th recommended to the Administrator that the Men's Neckwhe.
Code be amended to require that a special N.R.A. label be att-.ie':
to all products manufactured subject to the jurisdiction of the MenU j
Neckwear Code. .U .l1 I
Briefly stated, this amendment provides, that the special N.kA
label, which is to be issued exclusively by the Code Authority, shal.:l
symbolize to purchasers of men's neckwear the conditions"' hli i'ad
which such merchandise is manufactured. Subject to the approy li
of the Administrator, the Code Authority is empowered to establish
rules and regulations and appropriate machinery for the issuance i:!
labels and for the inspection, examination and supervision:'of o :
practices of employers using such labels.
Each label is to bear a registration number which will enable tts
Code Authority to identify the source of manufacture of all pro
ducts of the Industry. The charge made by the Code Authorty' "
for such labels is made subject to the supervision and rules an
regulations of the Administrator.
According to the testimony presented at the Public Hearing by i
the representatives of the Code Authority, the use of a special Code
Authority label is the most effective means known of securing comr-
pliance with the provisions of the Codes of Fair Competition in the
Apparel Manufacturing Trades. Not only does the use of the label
and the issuance thereof by the Code Authority serve as a means of
bringing the existence and location of all members of the Indntfiy,
to the attention of the Code Authority; the use of the label also.i.
serves as the basis of obtaining valuable information from all mDia
bers of the industry, with respect to compliance with labor and "rad
practice provisions of the Code.
t to.said Code, having found as herein set forth and on the basis
lird tl the proceedings in this matter:
-i: -(ia) The amendment to said Code and the Code as amended is
S;~dl' igei top ptromte the policies and purposes of Title I of the
National Industrial Recovery Act including the removal of obstruc-
t:ion.s to the free flow of interstate and foreign commerce which tend
odiminish,ithe amount thereof3 and will provide for the general
welfaree by promoting the organization of industry for the purpose
f cooperative action among trade groups, by inducing and main-
hintig united action of labor and management under adequate

tjvepractices,;by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the
t~ productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue restric-
o production .(except as may be temporarily required), by
sing. the consumption of industrial and agricultural products
ugh increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving
Jymt .by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
1he .Code as amended complies in all respects with the perti-
piropn sions of said Title of said Act, including without limita-
l..a..i b tion, (a) of Section 3, subsection (a) of Section 7 and
iaci (b) of Section 10 thereof.

nendments, on behalf of the Industry as a whole.
