NATIONAL INDUSTRIAL RECOVERY BOARD,
By W. A. HARRIMAN, Administrative Officer.
JOHN W. UPP,
Acting Division Administrator.
WASHINGTON, D. C.,
March 21, 1935.
REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White Hou.se.
SIR: This is a report on an amendment to the Code of Fair
Competition for the Furniture Manufacturing Industry designed
to permit incorporation of the Code Authority. This amendment
was proposed in accordance with Article IX of the Code as approved
on December 7, 1933. Notice of Opportunity to be Heard was
given from February 7 to February 28, 1935. No objection has
been filed against this amendment.
The Acting Assistant Deputy Administrator in his final report
to the National Industrial Recovery Board on said amendment to
said Code having found as herein set forth and on the basis of all
the proceedings in this matter:
The Amendment of Article VI, Section 1, will permit the incor-
poration of the Code Authority of the Industry.
Findings: It has been found necessary in order to assist the Code
Authority in functioning in a more flexible and efficient manner,
to incorporate a provision in the Code permitting the Code Authority
to act as a corporate entity.
On the basis of all the evidence in this matter and the studies
and findings of the Advisory Boards, I find that this amendment
and the Code, as constituted after being amended, will comply with
the provisions of the Act:
(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
obstructions 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 of labor and management under
adequate governmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating
unfair competitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utili-
zation 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 agri-
cultural products through increasing purchasing power, by reducing
and relieving unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and
by otherwise rehabilitating industry.
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provision of said Title of said Act, including without limi-
station Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7 and
Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Code empowers the Code Authority to present the afore-
said 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, this amendment has been approved.
For the National Industrial Recovery Board:
W. A. HARRIMAN,
MAdm inistrative Officer.
MiARCHR 21, 1935.
AMENDMENT TO CODE OF FAIR COMPETITION FOR
THE FURNITURE MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY
Amend Article VI, Section 1, by adding the following Subsec-
tions (e) and (f) :
(e) The Code Authority may incorporate under the laws of any
State of the United States or of the District of Columbia, such incor-
poration to be not for profit and to be known as the Furniture Code
Authority "; provided that the powers, duties, objects and purposes
of the said corporation shall, to the satisfaction of the National
Industrial Recovery Board, be limited to the powers, duties, objects
and purposes of the Code Authority as provided in the Code; pro-
vided further that the Code Authority shall submit to the National
Industrial Recovery Board for approval its proposed certificate of
incorporation and proposed By-Laws, and no amendment of either
shall be made without the like prior approval of the National Indus-
trial Recovery Board.
(f) If at any time, the National Industrial Recovery Board shall
determine that the corporate status assumed by the Code Authority
is interfering with the proper exercise of its powers and duties under
this Code, or with the effectuation of the policies or purposes of the
Act, it may, after such notice and hearing as may be deemed neces-
sary, require an appropriate modification of the structure of the
Corporation, the substitution of a corporation created under the
Laws of another State for this purpose, the substitution of a non-
corporate Code Authority truly representative of the Industry or
such action as may be deemed expedient.
