REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
SR: On August 19, 1933, you approved a Code of Fair Competi-
tion for the Lumber and Timber Products Industries.
On July 27, 1934, the Administrator for Industrial Recovery ap-
proved an Amendment to the Code for the Lumber and Timber
Products Industries establishing the Wooden Pail arid Tub Subdivi-
sion of the Wooden Package Division of the said Code.
The present Amendment, submitted by the Lumber Code Author-
ity as Amendment No. 94, reduces the number of members on the
Administrative Agency of the said Subdivision from six to four and
provides that these members shall be elected by a majority vote of
the members of the Industry. This Amendment is designed to effect
economies in the administration of the Code and to eliminate certain
obvious impraeticalities which developed under the original
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;
We find that:
(a) The Amendment to said Code and the Code as amended arre
well designed to promote the policies and purposes of Title I of
the National Industrial Recovery Act including the removal of ob-
structions to the free flow of interstate and foreign commerce which
tend to diminish the amount, thereof, and will provide for the gen-
eral welfare by promoting the organization of industry for the pur-
pose of cooperative action among trade groups, by including and
maintaiinig united action of labor and management. under adequate
governmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair com-
petitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of
the present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue
restrictions of production (except as may be temporarily required),
by increasing the consumption of industrial and agricultural prod-
ucts through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and reliev-
ing unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and by other-
wise rehabilitating industry.
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the per-
tinent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limi-
tation 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-
mentioned 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 Amelndment and the Code as nmended are not i ll'gned
to and will not eliminate or oppress small eit(-irprises 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 the effective
date of this Amendment.
For these reasons, therefore, we have approved this Amendmelnt
to this Code.
For the National Industrial Recovery Board:
