REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
SIR: Under the Code of Fair Competition for the Textile Print
Roller Engraving Industry as approved on March 8, 1934, the Code
Authority for said Industry has submitted the Amendments which
are included and attached.
-Hent ingi on the Amendments was held June 14, 1934 at the Amibas-
sador Hotel in Washington, D. C., and opportunity to be heard was
duly noticed to all interested parties. No objections were received.
These Amendments are considered of vital importance to this
Industry, which is making an earnest effort to curtail and prevent
certain industrial practices and abuses that have become apparent
during the past few years and which if allowed to continue will
tend to prevent, a rapid return of industrial recovery in this Industry.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report on said Amend-
ments to saiil Code having found as herein set forth and on the basis
of all proceedings in this matter,
It is found that:
(a) Tle Amendments to said Code and the Code as amnended
are well de-igned to promote the policies and purposes of Title I
of tlhe 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 of labor and management under
adequate governmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating uin-
fair competitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utiliza-
tion of the present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding
undue restriction of production (except as may be temporarily re-
quired), by increasing the consulmption of industrial and iagricul-
tural products through illncreailng purchasing power, by reducing
and relieving unemployment, by improving standl rds of Labor, and
by otherwise rehabilitating indiitry.
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without. limita-
tion Sub.etion (a) of Section 3, Sub-ection (a) of Section 7, and
Subection (b) of Section 10 thereof.
The Code empowers the Code Authority to present the aforesaid
amendments on behalf of the industry as a whole.
(d) The aforesaid amendments have been presented in accordance
with the relqirements of the National Industrial Recovery Adminis-
tration by the Code Authority which was officially recognized on
June 22, 1934.
(e) The amendments and the Code as amended are not designed to
and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practice.-.
(f) The amendments and the Code as amended are not designedl
to and will not eliminate or oppress small enterpri-c's and will not
operate to discriminate against. them.
(g) 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, therefore, these amnindmllents have been ap-
proved; provided, however, that the provisions of the amendment
numbered Article X relating to limitation and rtetriction of plant
equipment be and they are hereby stayed pending its further order.

Pursuant to Article VII, Section 2 (d) of the Code of Fair Com-
petition for the Textile Print Roller Engraving Industry duly
approved by the President on March 8, 1934, and further to effectuate
the policies of Title I of the National Industrial Recovery Act, the
following Amendments are established as a part of said Code of
Fair Competition and shall be binding upon every member of the
Textile Print Roller Engraving Industry.
Amend Article III, Section 1, by deleting the present Section 1
and inserting a new Section 1.
Amended Article III, Section 1, will then read as follows:
ARTICLE III -HoURS
SECTION 1. No employee, except as hereinafter provided, shall be
permitted to work in excess of forty (40) hours in any one (1) week,
nor in excess of eight (8) hours in any one (1) day, nor in excess
of five (5) days in any one (1) week, and only between 7 A. M.,
and 7: 30 P. M. Monday to Friday, inclusive; provided, however,
that upon specific approval of the Joint Industrial Relations Board,
established and functioning pursuant to Article VI hereof, em-
ployees within any defined area of the Industry may be permitted
to work not in excess of forty-eight (48) hours per week in any
twelve (12) weeks in any calendar year; provided, further, that time
and a half shall be paid for all hours worked in excess of eight (8)
hours in any one (1) day or forty (40) hours in any one (1) week.
Hours defined as 7 A. M. to 7:30 P. M. Monday to Friday, inclusive,
are specified so as to permit any additional working time that may
be granted as hereinabove set forth.
Amend Article VIII as follows:
Renumber old Sections 2 to 10 inclusive, to read Sections 1 to 9
inclusive and give them the title "Article IX-Trade Practices ";
change the title of Article VIII to read Costs and Price Cutting ";
delete old Section 1 and substitute therefore the following new Sec-
tions 1 and 2;
ARTICLE VIII-COSTS AND PRICE CUTTING
SECTION 1. The standards of fair competition for the Industry
with reference to pricing practices are declared to be as follows:
(a) Wilfully destructive price cutting is an unfair method of
cuimlpetition and is forbidden. Any member of the Industry or of
any other industry or the cu-tliners of either may at any time com-
plain to the Code Authority that any quoted price c('ll-.titutes unfair
competition as de-t ructive price cutting, imperiling small enterprise.
or tending tow\ird monopoly or the inmpaiirln nt, of Code wages. and
working conditions. The Code Authority shall within five (5) days
affordl ni opportunity to the nmei ibcIr quoting the pri;,_.: to answer such
complaint and shall within fourteen (14) days make a ruling or
adjustment thereon. If tuclh ruling is not concurred in by either
party to the complaint, all papers shall be referred to the Research
and Planning Division of N. R. A. which shall render a report and
recommendation thereon to the Administrator.
(b) When no declared emergency exists as to any given product,
there is to be no fixed minimum basis for prices. It is intended that
sound cost estimating methods should be used and that consideration
should be given to costs in the determiination of pricing policies.
(c) When an emergency exists as to any given product, sale below
the stated mininmnn price of such product, in violation of Section
2 hereof, is forbidden.
SECTION 2. Emergency Provisions.-(a) If the Administrator,
after investigation shall at any time find both (1) that an emergency
has arisen within the Industry adversely affecting small enterprises
or wages or labor conditions or tending toward monopoly or other
acute conditions which tend to defeat the purposes of the Act; and
(2) that the determination of the stated minimum price for a speci-
fied product within the industry for a limited period is necessary to
mitigate the conditions constituting such emergency and to effectuate
the purposes of the Act, the Code Authority may cause an impartial
agency to investigate costs and to recommend to the Administrator
a determination of the stated minimum price of the product affected
by the emergency and thereupon the Administrator may proceed to
determine such stated minimum price.
(1)) When the Administrator shall have determined such stated
minimum price for a specified product for a stated period, which
price shall be reasonably calculated to mitigate the conditions of
such emergency and to effectuate the purposes of the National In-
dustrial Recovery Act, he shall publish such price. Thereafter, dur-
ing such stated period, no member of the Industry shall sell such
specified products at a net realized price below said stated minimum
price and any such sale shall be deemed destructive price cutting.
From time to time, the Code Authority may recommend review or
reconsideration or the Administrator may cause any determinations
hereunder to be revised or reconsidered and appropriate action taken.
Add a Section to Article VIII (New Article IX) to be known as
Section 10, which will read as follows:
SECTION 10. Quoting of more favorable terms of cash payment
than thirty days net, two per cent for cash if paid within ten days.
Amend Article VIII (New Article IX) by adding a new Section
New Article IX, Section 11, will then read as follows:
ARTICLE IX-TRADE PRACTICES
SECTION 11. In order to eliminate Design Piracy as construed by
the Registering Authority, it shall be an unfair trade practice for
any member of the Industry to engrave or process a design or pat-
tern which has been registered with, and approved by, the Register-
ing Authority evidenced by the stamp and registration number of
such Authority imprinted on the original drawing or sketch of such
design or pattern, without the written consent of the person in whose
name such design or pattern is registered. Every concern in this
Industry engraving such registered designs or patterns shall engrave
such registration number of the design or pattern on the roller, when
so requested, separate charge being made for that service. A design,
however, which the Registering Authority has stamped as staple"
need not bear any registration number.
The Registering Authority, as used herein, means the Textile De-
sign Registration Bureau of the Federated Textile Industries, Inc.,
a Connecticut non-profit corporation having its principal office at No.
468 Fourth Avenue, New York City, or such other Bureau as may be
designated from time to time, in accordance with authority conferred
under the Code or Codes approved by the President and/or the
Administrator for any branch of the Textile Printing Industry. The
provisions hereof shall apply only to the engraving of designs for
such branches of the textile printing industry operating under codes
of fair competition requiring registration of designs and providing
that designs so registered shall be reproduced only with the consent
of the person registering the same.

sons engaged in the Industry of their productive machinery, which

chines, and any other machine which in itself produces a finished
product; (2) for the requirement that prior to the installation of
additional productive machinery by persons engaged or engaging in
the Industry, except for the replacement of a similar number of
existing machines, or to bring the operation of existing productive
machinery into balance, such persons shall secure certificates that
such installation will be (unsi.,telnt with effectuating the policy of
the National Industrial Recovery Act during the period of emer-
gency; and (3) for the granting or withholding by the Admini-trator
of such certificates if so required by him, may be made by the Code
Authority and upon approval by him such recommendations shall
become effective and binding upon every member of the industry.
The Administrator, however, shall not consider recommendations
(1 to 3) herein provided unless the Joint Industrial Relations Board,
created by Article VI of this Code, shall have first given its approval
for the necessity thereof.
Delete Article X-Monopolies and substitute therefore Article XI-

made subject to the right of the President in accordance with the
provisions of Section 10 (b) of the Act, from time to time, to canrili
