NATIONAL INDUSTRIAL RECOVERY BOARD,
By W. HAPRRaIAN, Administrative Officer.
PRENTISS L. COONLEY,
Acting Division Administrator.
WASHINGTON, D. C.,
November 24, 1934.
REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
Sin: The Code Authority for the Dress Manufacturing Industry
submitted two proposed amendments to the Code of Fair Competi-
tion for the Dress Manufacturing Industry. These amendments were
presented to the Legal Division, Research and Planning Division,
Consumers' Advisory Board, Labor Advisory Board and Industrial
Advisory Board of the National Recovery Administration and re-
ceived their approval.
One amendment was merely the correction of a typographical
error in Article VI, Section 1 (b) of the Code which clarified its
meaning. The amendment was in accordance with the standard
form and consistent with the policy of the Administration. For this
reason a Public Hearing was considered unnecessary and in lieu of
the said hearing the amendment was approved in the form of a
show cause order.
The second amendment was an addition to Section 14 of Article
IX to the effect that, it shall be a violation of the Code for any
member to accept orders from a resident buyer unless written au-
thorization is either submitted with the order or is on file with the
Dress Code Authority. This amendment was also in accordance
with the standard form and consistent with the policy of the Admin-
istration. For this reason it was treated in the same fashion as the
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to the National In-
dustrial Recovery Board on said amendments to said Code having
found as herein set forth and on the basis of all proceedings in this
The National Industrial Recovery Board finds 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 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 purpose of coopera-
tive action of labor and management under adequate governmental
sanctions and supervision, by eliminating unfair competitive prac-
tices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the present pro-
ductive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue restriction of
production (except as may be temporarily required), by increasing
the consumption of industrial and agricultural products through in-
creased purchasing power, by reducing and relieving unemployment,
by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise rehabilitating
(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 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 the effective date of
