REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
Smn: This is a report on the amendment of the Code of Fair Com-
petition for the Business Furniture, Storage Equipment, and Filing
Supply Industry as approved by you on Nnvember 4, 1933. Appli-
cation was made under date of July 9, 1934, by the National Emer-
gency Committee of the Business Furniture, Storage Equipment,
and Filing Supply Industry, for amendment of certain provisions of
Article IV of the Code. Fair notice of opportunity to file objec-
tions to this amendment was given to all interested parties, and no
objections were filed.
This amendment was drawn up and proposed in accordance with
Executive Order No. 6678, dated April 14, 1034, and with the Legal
Division's suggested wording for such amendments. It is intended
to govern the collection of assessments for code administration by
the National Emergency Committee of the Code of Fair Competi-
tion for the Business Furniture, Storage Equipment, and Filing
This amendment does not in any way affect the labor provisions
of the Code or anything other than assessment for expenses of code
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
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 govern-
mental 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 consumption of industrial and agricultural products through
increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving unemploy-
ment, by improving standardsof labor, and by otherwise rehabilitat-
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limitation
Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7, and Sub-
section (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Code empowers the National Emergency Committee to
present the aforesaid amendment on behalf of the Industry as a
(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
I believe the amendment to be fair to labor, to the consumer and
to the industry, and for these reasons, therefore, I approve this

purposes, and (2) an equitable basis upon which the funds necessary
to support such budget shall be contributed by members of the
(c) After such budget and basis of contribution have been ap-
proved by the Administrator, to determine and secure equitable
contribution as above set forth, by all members of the Industry, and
to that end, if necessary, to institute legal proceedings therefore in
its own name;
