REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
Sm: An application has been duly made pursuant to and in full
compliance with the provisions of the National Industrial Recovery
Act, for an amendment to the Code of Fair Competition for the
Manganese Industry, submitted by the Code Authority for the said
The existing provisions of Section 3 of Article III of the Code of
Fair Competition for the Manganese Industry have been found to be
inadequate, in that the operations in this Industry require the employ-
ment of hoist men, powerhouse men and pump men for longer periods
than ordinary workers.
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 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-
taining united action of labor and management under adequate gov-
ernmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating 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 purchasing power, by reducing and relieving un-
employment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provision of said Title of said Act, including without limitation
sub-Section (a) of Section 3, sub-Section (a) of Section 7 and sub-
Section (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 op-
erate 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 llave approved this amendment.
For the National Industrial Recovery Board:
W. A. HARnIMAN,
Adm in i .?trative Officer.
