REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
Sir: The attached amendment was submitted by the National Con-
trol Committee for the Hair and Jute Felt Industry.
No public hearing was held, but on April 13, 1934 a Notice of
Opportunity to File Objections was published, giving until April 24,
1934 for any criticisms to be sent to the National Recovery Adminis-
tration. No protest or criticisms were received.
RESUMEI OF AMENDMENT
The Industry found, after operating under the Code for several
months. that the maximum hours for watchmen and truck drivers
were too rigid and did not permit necessary flexibility.
As long as this change is being made, the entire Article relating
to Hours was rewritten in order to clarify the intent of certain
clauses. The Industry also revised the Article concerning Minors to
conform with more recently approved codes. In addition, a clause
has been added to provide for the formation of standards of safety
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said amend-
ment 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 inducing and main-
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
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 un-
employment, by improving 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, including without limita-
tion Sub-Section (a) of Section 3 Sub-Section (a) of Section 7,
and Sub-Section (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, the amendment has been approved.
HUGH S. JOHNSON,
MAY 23, 1934.
