REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The PRESIDENT, .
The Wkite H s.
SIn: This is a report on the procedure followed by the National
Recovery Administration in approving an amendment to the Code
of Fair Competition for the Blouse and Skirt Manufacturing; Indus-
tries, as approved on December 30, 1933, which empowers the Code
Authority to assess members of the Industries in order to obtain
funds for purposes of Code administration. This amendment car-
ries out the terms of your Order of April 14, 1934.
This amendment was submitted by the Code Authority for the

and Skirt Manufacturing Indusries. A notice of opportunity to
be heard to the amendment, as proposed by the Code Authority,
was subsequently issued, and an adequate opportunity was given
all interested parties to voice their objection to the approval of this
amendment. No objections, however, were filed with the Deputy
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on this
amendment to said Code, having found as hereir 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-
tion 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 potrpI e
of cooperative action among trade groups, by inducing asd maW-
taining 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 restric-
tion of production (except as may be temporarily required), by jan-
creasing the consumption of agricultural and industrial products
through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving
unemployment, by hinproving standards of labor, and by otherwise
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, ineld:ing without limita-
tion Subsection (a) of Section 3. Srbsection (a) of Seciona 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
S and will not eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not
operate to discriminate against them.
S(f) Those engaged in other steps of the economic process have not
been deprived of the right to be heard prior to the approval of said
For these reasons this Amendment has been approved.
R ectfully, HUGH S. JOHNSON,
AousTr 2, 1934.
