REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The PRESIDENT,
The White House.
Sm: The Code Authority for the Men's Clothing Industry sub-
mitted on March 14, 1934, a proposed amendment to the Code of Fair
Competition for the Men's Clothing Industry. This amendment
as submitted was presented to the Legal Division of the National
Recovery Administration, and received its approval.
As this amendment was merely a simple trade practice provision
to be added to the trade practice provisions of the Code, a Public
Hearing was not necessary, and in lieu of the Public Hearing a notice
of opportunity to file objections (Administrative Order No. 15-9)
was printed and distributed in the same manner as a Notice of
Hearing. The date of April 6, 1934, was set forth in this notice of
opportunity to file objections as the deadline on which to receive
objections to this amendment. Up to and including April 6, 1934,
no objections to this amendment were received.
In its final form this amendment was approved by the Industrial
Advisory Board, the Labor Advisory Board, the Consumers' Ad-
visory Board, the Legal Division, and the Research and Planning
Division of the National Recovery Administration.
This amendment is to be added as a new section to Article XII,
and is to be known as Section C of the Code for this Industry.
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 gen-
eral welfare 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
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 prod-
ucts through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and reliev-
ing unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and by other-
wise rehabilitating industry.
(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 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
amendment.
For these reasons, these trade practice provisions have been ap-
proved.
Respectfully,
HUGH S. JOHNSON,
Administrator.
APRIL 14, 1934.
