REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The VWhite House.
SIR: This is a report on an amendment to the Code of Fair Com-
petition for the Cooking and Heating Appliance Manufacturing
Industry. A Notice of Opportunity to be Heard was sent to all
members of the Industry on June 18, 1934, and no objections were
filed with the Administration. The amendment which is attached
was presented by the Code Authority, and endorsed by the Trustees
of the Institute of Cooking and Heating Appliance Manufacturers.
The Code of Fair Competition for the Cookirg and Heating
Manufacturing Industry provides in Article XI, Section 2, as
2. This code, except as to provisions required by the Act, may be
modified on the basis of experience or changes in circumstances,
such modifications to be based upon application to the Adminis-
trator, and such notice and hearing as he shall specify, and to
become effective on approval by the President."
This amendment provides that Section 5 of Article VII be de-
leted, and that certain provisions be inserted in accordance with your
Executive Order of April 14 to facilitate the collection from each
member of the Industry of his or its equitable contribution of the
expenses of the maintenance of the Code Authority, subject to' such
rules and regulations pertaining thereto that may be issued by the
The Assistant Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on
said amendment 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
National 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 wel-
fare by promoting the organization of industry for the purpose of
cooperative action among trade groups, by inducing and maintain-
ing united action of labor and management under adequate gov-
ernmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair com-
petitive 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
unemployment, 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 limita-
tion sub-section (a) of Section 3, sub-section (a) of Section 7, and
sub-section (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Institute of Cooking and Heating Appliance Manufac-
turers was and is an industrial group truly representative of the
aforesaid Industry, and that said Institute imposed and imposes no
inequitable restrictions on admission to membership therein and has
endorsed this amendment, which was submitted by the Code Au-
(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 enterprise 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.

such notice and opportunity to be heard as he may deem necessary
