DEAR SmR: Thlis is a report on the Supplemental Cod~e of Fair

and Allied Products Industry, a Public Hearing on which was held
in Washington, D.C., on December 21, 1933. The Hearing was
conducted in full accordance with the provisions of Title I of the
National Industrial Recovery Act.
The Jack~ Alaznufacturing Subdivision beingi representative of the
manufacturers of t~he products defined in Article II of the Supple-
mental Code, has elected to formulate and submit a Supplemnental
Code of Fair Competition as provided in the second pa~agraph of
Article I of the Code of Fair C'ompetition for the M~achinery and
Allied Products Industry, approved by you on the seventeenth day
of 8larch, 19341.
The Jack Mfanufacturing Subdivision means thie manufacture for
sale of jacks and parts thereof used generally in t~he construction,
railroad, mining, and general industrial field,exclusive of automotive
jacks, and includes all those engaged in such manufacture for sale.
This Subdivision has been severely affected by the depression.
This is evidenced by the steady decline in annual sales from $2,4119,000
in 1929 to $516,000 in 1932, or 7~8.7 per cent. Sales for the first seven
months of 1933 were estimated at $345 000.
In 1929 this Subdivision employed 293 factory workers, which
total declined to 105 in the second quarter of 1933, or 64%~, and
increased to approximately 160 as of October 15, 1933.
Approximately 26%r~ of the factory workers were working more
than 40 hours per week during the week of June 15, 1933. The
average worlk week declined from 47.5 hours in 1929 to 28.0 hours
as of June 15, 1933, then increased to 30.5 hours as of October 15,
Approximately 17.5 per cent of the total factory workers employed
as of June 15, 1933, were receiving less than 40 cents per hour; 14.4
per cent wreIC receiving less than 38 cents per hour; and 5.6 per cent
were receiving less than 32 cents per hour.
The wage provisions for the Subdivision, which is operating under
the Code of the Mllachinery and Allied Products Industry, provide
that employees engaged in plant operations shall be paid as follows:
(1) in cities of more than 50,000 population and their immediate
vicinity, 40 cents per hour; (2) in cities of more than 10,000 but not
more than 50,000 population and their immediate vicinity, which
cities are not in thne immedliate vlicinity of a city of more than 50,000
population, 38 cents per hour; (3) in cities of 10,000 population or
less and their immediate vicinity, w-hich cities are not in the imme-
diate vicinity of a city of more than 10,000 population, 36 cents per
hour, except that employees engaged in plant operations in all local-
ities in the states of Vrinia, North Carolina, South Carolina,
Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, Alabama, 1\Iississippi, Arkansas, Louisi-

The Assistant Depulty Admninistrator in his final report to me on
said Supplemental Code having foundl as herein set forth and on
the basis of all the proceedings in this matter:
I find that:

policies and purposes of Tit~le I of the National Industrial Recovery
Act, including removal of obstructions to the free flow of interstate
and foreign commerce which tendl to diminish the amount thereof
rand will provide for the general welfare by promoting the orgaaniza-
tion of industry for the purpose of cooperative action among the
trade groups, by inducing and maintaining united action of labor
and management under adequate governmental sanctions and super-
vision, by eluinmating 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 requiredd, by increasing the consumption of
industrial and agricultural products through increasing purchasing
power, by reducing and relieving unemployment, by improving
standards of Inbor, and by otherwise rehabilitating industry.
(b) Said Subdivision normally employs not more than 50,000
employees; and is not classified by mle as a major industry.
(c) The Supplemnental Code as approved complies in all respects
with the pertinent provisions of said Title of said Act, including
without limitation Subsection (a) of Section (3), Subsection (a) ofi
Section 7, and Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof : and that the
applicant association is an association representative of the aforesaid
Subdivision; and that said association imposes no inequitable restric-
tions on admission to membership therein.
(d) The Supplemental Code is not designed to and will not per-
mit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The Supplemental Code is not designed to and will not elimi-
note or oppress small enterprises and will not operate to discrimiinate
(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
Fior these reasons, therefore, I have approved this Supplemental
Code, provided that certain provisions relating to price publication,
trade practices and product sale are stayed as stated in the Order.

ARTICLE VII--SELLUNG BELOW REASONABLE COST
SECTION 1. When the Code Aut~hority determines that an emer-
gency exists in this Subdivision and that the cause thereof is de-
structive prce-cutting such as to render ineffective or seriously
endanger the maintenance of the provisions of this Supplemental
Code, the Code Authlority may cause to be determined thle lowest
reasonable cost of the products of this Subdivision, such determina-
tion to be subject to such notice and hearing as the Administrator
may require. The Administrator may approve, disapprove, or
modify the determination. Thereafter, dunrm the period of the
emergency, it shall be an unfair trade practice Ifor any employer of
the Su'bdivision to sell or offer to sell any products of the Subdivi-
sion for which the lowest reasonable cost has been determined at
such prices or upon such terms or conditions of sale that the buyer
will pay less therefore than the lowest reasonable cost of such product.
W~hen it appears that conditions have changed, the Code Auth~or-
i ,i upon its own initiative or upon the request of any interested
party, sliall cause the determination to be reviewed.

'inis which may be disposed of by any employer at any price and

thority a statement in writing setting forth the facts of, and reasons
for, such proposed disposal and t~he price and terms and conditions of
sale, and Code Authority has not, (with thle approval of the Admin-
istrator), before the termination of such two week period, in writing,
disapprovedl the proposed disposal. Notice of such disposal, if not
disapproved, shall be sent immediately to all employers manufactur-
ing products of equivalent design, character, quality or specifications,
who may sell such products at prices and on terms and conditions as
favorable as those stipulated in the proposed disposal, when meeting
the competition of such proposed disposal.
SECTION 3. The foregoing Section 1 shall not apply to a sale made
in order to meet competition on products manufactured outside the
United States. For such dlisposal, any employer may sell, at prices
and on terms and conditions as favorable as those of the competing
foreign product, but only if he has first reported to the Code Au-
thor~ity his intention so to sell, and the facts as to the competition
which justifies such action.

engaged in the manufacture of such product shall, within ten (10)
days after notice of such determination, file with Code Authority a
net price list, or a price list with discount sheet, as the case may be,
individually prepared by him, showing his current prices, or prices
and discounts, and terms of sale and payment for such specified
product, and Code Authority~ shall immediately publish and send
copies thereof to all known employers who are cooperating under this
Supplemnental Code as described in Art~icle V (e) and engaged in the

specified therein, buxt such revised plr i~cte list n/or discount sheets
and/or terms of sale and payments shalll befuiled with the Code
Authority ten (10) days in advaance of the operative date. Copies
thereof, with notice of thle operative date specified, shall be imme-
diately published and sent to all employers cooperating under this
Supplemental Code as described in Article V (e), any of whom may
file, if he so desires, revisions of his price lists and/or discount sheets

t~he date when, the lreised price list and/or discount sheets and/or
terms of sale and payment fist filed shall go into effect. Each em-
ploer hal prpare and furnish the Code Authority for distribu-
tion itsuhnumber of copies of his price lists and/or discount

payment, the distribution or marketing conditions in the group are
the same as, or similar to, the distribution or marketing conditions
in a group where the use of price lists, with or without discount
sheets and terms of sale and payment is well recognized, and that
a system of selling on net price lists or price lists and discount sheets
with terms of sal and payment for such specified product should
be put into effect in such group, then each employer in such group
shall within twenty (20) days after notice of such determination,
file with Code Authority net price lists or price lists and discount
sheets, with terms of sale and payment, showing his prices and dis-
counts and terms of sale and payment, and such price lists and,'or
discount sheets and/or terms of sale and payment may be thereafter
revised in the manner hereinbefore provided; and such methlods of
pricing and revisions thereof shall be "L published and sent as de-
scribed in Article VIII (a); provided that Code Authority shall
make no determination to place any product of the Subdivision (not
now on a price list basis) on a, price list basis, as provided in this
Section unless affirmative consent to such determlination is given by
a 665S/3% vote of employers who are at that time cooperating under
this Supplemental Code as described in Article V (e), and are
engaged m manufacturing such product. The eligibility reqluire-
ments, method, a~nd effect of such voting shall be the samne as is pro-
vrided by Article V.
(c) For the purpose of gatherings statistical data for the determi-
nation or revision of a lowest reasonable cost under Art~ic~le VII, the
Code Authority shall have power, on its own initiative, or on the
request of any employer, to investigate, to the extent permitted by
the Act, any price or the terms of sale and payment for any product
shown in any price list and/'or discount sheet filed with the Clode
Authority by any employer; and, for the purpose of the investiga-
tion thereof, shall appoint competent representatives who shall not
be an employer or in the employ of any employer affected by the
Code; and also to require., to the extent permitted by the Act, such
employer to furnish, under restrictions as provided in the two patra-
'graphs of Section (f), Article VI of the Code, such information
concerning the cost of manufacturing and selling such product as
the Code Aut~hority shall deem necessary or proper for such purpose.
'(d). No employer shall sell directly or indirectly by any means
whatsoever, any product of t~he Subdivision covered by provisions
of this Article VIII at a price or at discounts or on terms of sale
and payment, different from those provided in his ownI current net
price lists, or price lists and discount sheets, and terms of sale and
payment; except as provided in Article VII, Sections 2 and 3.
