REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
SIR: On August 19, 1933, you approved a Code of Fair Compe-
tition for the Lumber and Timber Products Industries.
This is a report on the Lumber Code Authority's aniinllmnent No.
98. which is being published with a Notice of Opportunity to be
This amendment proposes changes to correct typographical errors;
to develop a uniform system of numbering and lettering; to improve
the form of the Code and to make it possible for a new reprint to be
published including approved amendments 1 to 24, inclusive. and any
further ameendments subsequent thereto. The amendment is not of
a controversial nature and is to enable the Government Printing
Office to furnish a correct reprint of the Code with various errors
and inconsistencies removed. The Order approving the amendment
does not become effective until twenty days after the date thereof
which permits further modification if good cause is shown and a
subsequent Order i-.-led to that effect.
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 amendr1-d 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 including and main-
aining united action of labor and nianngemrent under adequate gov-
ernmental sanction and s upervision. by eli ininating unfair competi-
tive 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 pur,-ha-i;ng power, by reducing and relieving
unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
reha bilitating industry.
(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-ei.tion (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 afre-
said amel-ndi.lmnt 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 oppre:s small enterprises and will not
operate to di.crimiinate against them.
(f) Those enga.gedl in other .teps of the economic process have not
been deprived of the right to be heard prior to effective date of said
For these reasons, therefore, we have approved this amendment
to this Code.
For the National Industrial Recovery Board:
W. A. HARRIMAN,
A dtrl nd'st rative Officer.
