REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT


The PRESIDENT,
The White House.
SIR: The Code Authority for the Men's Clothing Industry sub-
mitted on March 14, 1934 and May 18, 1934 proposed amendments
to the Code of Fair Competition for the Men's Clothing Industry.
These amendments when submitted were presented to the Legal
Division of the National Recovery Administration and received its
approval.
As these amendments were short and simple and consistent with
the policies of the Administration, a Public Hearing was considered
not necessary and in lieu of the Public Hearing, notices of Oppor-
tunity to be Heard were printed and distributed in the same manner
as the Notice of Public Hearing. A specified date was set forth in
such notices by which time objections and criticisms were to be re-
ceived relative to these amendments. Up to and including the dates
specified in such notices, no objections or criticisms were received.
In their final form these amendments received the approval of the
Industrial Advisory Board, the Labor Advisory Board, the Con-
sumers' Advisory Board, and the Legal and Research and Planning
Divisions of the National Recovery Administration.
The first amendment provides that no member of the Men's
Clothing Code Authority shall be liable in any manner to anyone
for any act of any other member, officer, agent, or employee of the
Code Authority. The second amendment provides that the Code
Authority may incorporate and be known as the Men's Clothing
Code Authority, Incorporated.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said
amendments 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
obstructions 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
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 production capacity of industries, by avoiding undue re-
striction 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 relieving
9 (21








unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
rehabilitating industry.
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the per-
tinent 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 amendments on behalf of the industry as a whole.
(d) The amendments and the Code as amended are not designed
to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The amendments 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
amendments.
For these reasons, these amendments have been approved.
Respectfully,
Hrcu S. JOHnSON,
Administrator.
AUGUsT 13, 1934.
