CODE OF FAIR COMPETITION
FOR THE

AUTOMOBILE MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY

As Approved on December 18, 1933
BY
PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT





Executive Order

An application having been duly made in behalf of the Automo-
bile Manufacturing Industry, pursuant to and in full compliance
with the provisions of title I of the National Industrial Recovery
Act, approved June 16, 1933, and the provisions of the Code of
Fair Competition for the Automobile Manufacturing Industry duly
approved on August 26, 1933, for my approval of an amendment
to said Code of Fair Competition for the Automobile Manufac-
turing Industry, and the Administrator having rendered his report
containing an analysis of the said proposed amendment together with
his recommendations and findings with respect thereto, and the Ad-
ministrator having found that the said proposed amendment complies
in all respects with the pertinent provisions of title I of said act
and that the requirements of clauses (1) and (2) of subsection (a)
of section 3 of the said act have been met:
NOW, THEREFORE, I, Franklin D. Roosevelt, President of
the United States, pursuant to the authority vested in me by title I
of the National Industrial Recovery Act, approved June 16, 1933,
and otherwise, do adopt and approve the report, recommendations
and findings of the Administrator and do order that the said appli-
cation be and it is hereby approved, and that, effective immediately,
the said Code of Fair Competition for the Automobile Manufac-
turing Industry be and it is hereby amended as follows:
In article I, the seventh paragraph, which has heretofore read as
follows:
The term 'expiration date' as used herein means December 31,
1933, or the earliest date prior thereto on which the President shall
27650---296-20--33 1 1

by proclamation or the Congress shall by joint resolution declare
that the emergency recognized by section 1 of the National Industrial
Recovery Act has ended."
shall be modified to read as follows:
"The term 'expiration date' as used herein means September 4,
1934, or the earliest date prior thereto on which the President shall
by proclamation or the Congress shall by joint resolution declare
that the emergency recognized by section 1 of the National Industrial
Recovery Act has ended."
FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT.
Approval recommended:
HUGH S. JOHNSON,
A administrator.
THE WHITE HOUSE,
December 18, 1933.













DECEMBER 18, 1933.
THE PRESIDENT,
The White House.
SIR: The National Automobile Chamber of Commerce has made
application in behalf of the Automobile Manufacturing Industry
that the Code of Fair Competition for said Industry be amended as
follows:
In Article I, the seventh paragraph, which now reads as follows:
"The term 'expiration date', as used herein, means December 31
1933, or the earliest date prior thereto on which the President shall
by proclamation, or the Congress shall by Joint Resolution, declare
that the emergency recognized by Section 1 of the National Indus-
trial Recovery Act has ended ",
be modified to read as follows:
"The term 'expiration date', as used herein, means September 4,
1934, or the earliest date prior thereto on which the President shall
by proclamation, or the Congress shall by Joint Resolution, declare
that the emergency recognized by Section 1 of the National Indus-
trial Recovery Act has ended."
The reports received from the manufacturers operating under this
Code indicate that the provisions of the Code have tended to effectu-
ate the policy of Title I of the National Industrial Recovery Act
in that employment was increased from approximately 125,600 in
July 1933 to approximately 150,700 in September 1933; an increase
of approximately 25,100 employees, or 20%.
That this increase was not due to increased production is indi-
cated by a decrease in man-hours from approximately 21.300,000 in
July 1933 to approximately 19,600,000 in September 1933, a decrease
of approximately 1,700,000 man-hours, or 8%.
Total pay rolls at the same time increased from approximately
$12,700,000 in July 1933 to approximately $14,700,000 in September
1933, an increase of approximately $2,000,000, or 16%.
The above figures cover only factory employees of manufacturers
who are members of the National Automobile Chamber of Com-
merce, since complete figures are not available for the entire Industry
prior to the Code. The National Automobile Chamber of Commerce
represents approximately 78% of the production capacity and ap-
proximately 95% of the manufacturing units in the Industry.
It is recommended, therefore, that the application be approved.
Respectfully,
Huan S. JOHNSON,
A administrator.
Approved Code No. 17-Amendment No. 1.
