REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
SmR: The Code Authority for the Dress Manufacturing Industry
submitted on July 26, 1934, two proposed amendments to the Code
of Fair Competition for the Dress Manufacturing Industry.
As these amendments were short and simple and consistent with
the policy of the Administration a Public Hearing was considered
not necessary and in lieu of the Public Hearing a Notice of Op-
portunity to be Heard (Administrative Order No. 64-17) was
printed and distributed in the same manner as a Notice of Public
Hearing. The date of August 13, 1934, was set forth in ihis Notice
of Opportunity to be Heard as a deadline on which to receive objec-
tions or criticisms to these amendments. Up to and including
August 13, 1934, no objections or criticisms were received.
The first amendment amends Article VI of the Code, allowing the
Code Authority and any of its agencies or divisions to incorporate
under the laws of any state of the United States or the District of
The second amendment amends Article IX of the Code and makes
the bribery or attempted bribery of any employees of the Code
Authority a violation of the Code.
In final form these amendments were approved by the Industrial
Advisory Board, the Labor Advisory Board, the Consumers' Advi-
sory Board, the Legal Division and the Research and Planning
Division of the National Recovery Administration.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said amend-
ments 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 andmdments 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-
tionr 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 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 in-
creasing 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 limitation
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 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
For these reasons these amendments have been approved.
