GARMENT INDUSTRY
An application having been duly made pursuant to and in full
compliance with the provisions of Title I of the National Industrial
Recovery Act, approved June 16, 1933, for approval of an amend-
ment to a Code of Fair Competition for the Cotton Garment Industry,
and hearings having been duly held thereon and the annexed report
on said amendment, containing findings with respect thereto, having
been made and directed to the President:
NOW, THEREFORE, on behalf of the President of the United
States, I, Hugh S. Johnson, Administrator for Industrial Recovery,
pursuant to authority vested in me by Executive Orders of the
President, including Executive Order No. 6543-A, dated December
30, 1933, and otherwise; do hereby incorporate, by reference, said
annexed report and do find that said amendment and the Code as
constituted after being amended comply in all respects with the
pertinent provisions and will promote the policy and purposes of said
Title of said Act, and do hereby order that said amendment be and it is
hereby approved, and that the previous approval of said Code is
hereby modified to include an approval of said Code in its entirety
as amended.
Upon a good cause shown therefore, this Order shall be revocable,
at any time at the discretion of the Administrator.
HUGH S. JOHNSON,
Administrator for Industrial Recovery.
Approval recommended:
A. D. WHITESIDE,
Division Administrator.
WASHINGTON, D.C.,
March 22, 1934.

REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The PRESIDENT,
The White House.
SIR: The Public Hearing on an amendment to the Code of Fair
Competition for the Cotton Garment Industry expanding the juris-
diction of the Code of Fair Competition for the Cotton Garment
Industry to cover the manufacture of cotton underwear and sleeping
garments as proposed by the Code Authority for this Industry was
conducted on Monday, February 26, 1934, in the Ball Room of the
Raleigh Hotel, Washington, D.C. Every person who requested an
appearance was fairly heard in public in accordance with the regula-
tions of the National Recovery Administration. There were present
duly authorized representatives of the Code Authority and other
representative members of the Industry.
The Code of Fair Competition for the Cotton Garment Industry,
approved November 17, 1933, covers a variety of articles of apparel
manufactured from cotton. On October 19, 1933, the Association
of Cotton Undergarments and Sleeping Garment Manufacturers had
presented a petition to the Administrator asking that the definition
of the Code of Fair Competition for the Cotton Garment Industry
then awaiting approval be changed to give the Code jurisdiction over
the manufacture of cotton undergarments and sleeping garments.
For various reasons, action on this petition was delayed and no public
hearing was called on the petition until February 26, 1934, approxi-
mately three months after the Code of Fair Competition for the
Cotton Garment Industry had been approved, and then on the
recommendation of the Code Authority.
At the hearing it was clearly apparent that the Association origi-
nating the petition for the amendment was truly representative of
the group of manufacturers who will be directly affected by this
amendment. Such objection as was raised to the amendment was
based upon the desire of some manufacturers engaged both in the
manufacture of cotton underwear and silk or rayon underwear to
avoid coming under the jurisdiction of more than one Code of Fair
Competition. Since many of the members of the Association sponsor-
ing the amendment are already to some extent manufacturing under
the terms of the Code of Fair Competition for the Cotton Garment
Industry, this objection was not deemed to be a vital one.
In final form this amendment has been approved by the Labor
Advisory Board, Industrial Advisory Board, Consumers' Advisory
Board, and the Legal Division of the Recovery Administration.
The Code Authority as well as the Association of the Cotton Under-.
garment and Sleeping Garment Manufacturers have also, through
their duly authorized representatives, indicated their approval of
the amendment.
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 m this amendment:








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 still 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 competitive 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 consump-
tion of industrial and agricultural products through increasing pur-
chasing power, by reducing and relieving unemployment, by improv-
ing standards of labor, and by otherwise rehabilitating industry.
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the pertinent
provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limitation sub-
section (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, this amendment has been approved.
Respectfully,
HUGH S. JOHNSON,
Administrator.
MARCH 22, 1934.
