REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT


The PRESIDENT,
The WThite House.
SIR: The Public Hearing on an amendment to the Code of Fair
Competition for the Corset and Brassiere Industry as proposed by
the Code Authority for this Industry was conducted on February 23,
1934 in Room 3204, Department of Commerce Building, Washington,
D.C.
Each person who requested an appearance was fairly heard in
public in accordance with the usual requirements. Present were
authorized representatives of the Code Authority for this Industry
and the Corset and Brassiere Association of America and representa-
tive members of the Industry.
The Code of Fair Competition for the Corset and Brassiere Indus-
try, approved August 14, 1933, contained a provision providing for
standard methods of packing-Fair Trade Practice Rules Section
(j). This provision embodied the standard practice of a majority
of the Industry and was intended to promote economies in distri-
bution which would benefit the consumer.
Protests against provision (j) were filed with the Code Authority
by dealers who do not habitually purchase garments in the quantities
specified as standard. Although provision was made in the Code for
packing other than as provided in Section (j), several small manu-
facturers, doing business with smaller dealers, also petitioned for
modification of the Code as approved.
The Code Authority having conducted public hearings, and found
that consideration to smaller units, both dealers and manufacturers,
required that certain modifications be made, recommended certain
changes designed to make this section more flexible.
In final form, this amendment has been approved by the Labor
Advisory Board, Industrial Advisory Board, Research and Planning
Division, Consumers Advisory Board, and the Legal Division of the
National Recovery Administration.
The Code Authority has indicated its 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 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 gov-







ernmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair competi-
tive 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
increasing the consumption of industrial and agricultural products
through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving
unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
rehabilitating industry.
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limitation
Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (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 oper-
ate 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
approved.
Respectfully,
HUGH S. JOHNSON,
Administrator.
MARCH 29, 1934.
