REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
Sm: This is a .report on a proposed amendment to the Code of
Fair Competition for the Daily Newspaper Publishing Business,
approved Code No. 288.
Article VI, Section 2 of the Code now provides for the designation
of Code Authority members and the Chairman thereof by certain
newspaper associations. It is proposed in the amendment to the
Code submitted herewith to modify only the provision relating to
designations by the American Newspaper Publishers' Association by
striking out the following clause: Of whom its President shall be
one," and also the final sentence: "The President of the American
Newspaper Publishers' Association shall be the Chairman of the
This modification was suggested in the first instance by the Ameri-
can Newspaper Publishers' Association, so that the status of Code
Authority membership and Chairmanship would not be affected by
changes in the Association presidency.
The amendment having been duly approved by the Code Authority
was thereupon submitted to all publisher members of the Code for
their consent, as required by Article VII of the Code. This referen-
dum resulted as follows:
For the Amendment-- ------ ------- 594 votes

A Notice of Opportunity to be Heard has been issued as of the
day the Order approving the amendment was signed, and the Order
approving the amendment will become effective twenty days from
the date thereof unless good cause to the contrary is shown and a
subsequent order issued by the Board to that effect.
The Division Administrator, in his final report on the amendment
to the Code, having found as herein set forth, and on the basis of all
the proceedings on this matter:
We find that:
(a) Amendment to said Code is well designed to promote the poli-
cies 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 organiza-
tion of Industry for the purposes of cooperative action among trade
groups, by inducing and maintaining united action of labor and
iinancrenu.nt under adequate governmental sanction and supervision,
by li i i noting un fair com petitive practices, by promoting the fullest
.possible utilization of the present productive capacity of industries,
by avoiding uindlue restriction of production (except as may be tem-
iprarily required,) by increasing the consumption of industrial and
agricultural 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 provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limitation
subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7 and Subsec-
tion (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 oper-
ate 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 the above reasons the amendment has been approved.
For the National Industrial Recovery Board:
