REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
SIR: This is a report on the modification of the Code of Fair
Competition for the Tool and Implement Manufacturing Division
of the Fabricated Metal Products Manufacturing and Metal Coating
Industry as approved on March 15, 1934. Application was made
under date of June 16, 1934, by the Supplementary Code Authority
for the Tool and Implemert Manufacturing Industry for modifica-
tion of the provisions of Article IV, Sections 4 and 5 of the Supple-
mentary Code. Fair notice of opportunity to file objections to this
proposed amendment was given to all interested parties. No objec-
tions were filed.
This amendment was drawn up and proposed in accordance with
Executive Order No. 6678, dated April 14, 1934, and Administrative
Order No. X-36. It is intended to govern the collection of expenses-
of Code Administration by the Tool and Implement Supplementary
Code Authority. This amendment does not in any way affect the
labor provisions of the Supplementary Code nor anything other than
assessment for expenses of Code Administration.
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
SNational 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 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 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 Supplementary Code empowers the Supplementary Code
Authority to present the aforesaid 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
For these reasons, therefore, I have approved this amendment.
