NATIONAL INDUSTRIAL RECOVERY BOARD,
By W. A. HARRIMAN, Administrative Officer.
W. P. ELLIS,
Division, dnin Istrator.
WASHINGTON, D. C.,
January 8, 1935.
REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
SiR: On August 19, 1933. you approved a Code of Fair Competi-
tion for the Lumber and Timber Products Industries.
This is a report on Lumber Code Authority's Amendment No. 91,
which has been published with a Notice of Opportunity to be Heard
and sent to all interested partieQ.
The Amendment contemplates the addition of the Territory of
Alaska to the jurisdiction of the Red Cedar Shingle Divi-iin.
One of the largest manufacturers of shingles in Alaska has volun-
tarily submitted itself to the Code and is at present operating under
full Code compliance including an allocation from the Red Cedar
Shingle Division Agency. It is felt that other Alaskan manufac-
turers should be brought under the Code in fairness to the industry
and especially in view of the fact that the Canadian shingle manu-
facturers through a voluntary agreement are cooperating with the
industry through an export quota and are also voluntarily complying
with the trade practice regulations which were recently approved
for the Red Cedlr Shingle Division.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to us on said Amend-
ment to said Code having found as herein set forth and on the basis
of all the proceedings in this matter:
(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 Ijurpose
of cooperative action anmnL' trade groups, by including and main-
taining united action of labor and management under adequate gov-
ernnmental sanction and sup,-rvision, by eliminating unfair competi-
tive practi.- -. by proinoting the fullest pliosible- utilization of the
present productive ca.acitv of indu-trie-, by avoiding undue re.tric-
tion of production (except as may be temporarily required), by
increa-ing the consumption of industrial and agricultural products
through increasing pur1rha-ing power, by reducing and relieving
unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
(b) The Code as amended complies in all rp-pects with the perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limita-
tion subsection (a) of S.-ition 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, we have approved this Amendment
to this Code.
For the National Industrial Recovery Board:
W. A. HARRIMAN,
