REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT


The PRESIDENT,
The White House.
SIR: This is a report on the proposed amendment to the Code of
Fair Competition for the Daily Newspaper Publishing Business,
approved Code No. 288. The amendment applies specifically to
hours and wages for news department employees and is in the form
of an additional Section 3 to Article III and an additional Section
5 to Article IV. A Notice of Public Hearing, Administrative Order
No. 98-C was issued December 27, 1934, and a Public Hearing was
held on January 17, 1935, at which Hearing an opportunity was
given to all interested parties to present to the National Industrial
Recovery Board facts pertinent to the proposed amendment.
The hours of work proposed for news department employees
shall be those provided in Article III, Section 1, paragraph 1 of
the Code, but the definition of news department employees does not
apply to persons employed in a managerial or executive capacity,
to editorial writers, to employees on out of town assignment, nor
to correspondents (except where a permanent bureau of two or
more full-time correspondents is maintained.)
The minimum wage for full-time, salaried news department
employees, will be determined by the population of the community
in which the business of the employer is located, there being six
broad classifications. Part time employees will receive pro rata
rates based on the scale of minimum wages. Cub reporters will be
paid not less than seventy per cent (70%) of the wage called for
in the scale. Learners and apprentices, copy and office boys or
girls, and employees engaged in clerical, filing or statistical work
will be paid in accordance with the provisions of Article IV, Sec-
tion 1 of the Code.
The Division Administrator, in his final report on the amend-
ment 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 organi-
zation of industry for the purposes of cooperative action among
trade groups, by inducing and maintaining united action of labor
and management under adequate governmental sanction and super-
vision, by eliminating unfair competitive practices, by promoting
the fullest possible utilization of the present productive capacity
of industries, by avoiding undue restriction of production (except as
may be temporarily required), by increasing the consumption of in-








dustrial 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 limita-
tion 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-
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
amendment.
For the above reasons the amendment has been approved.
For the National Industrial Recovery Board:
W. A. HARRIMAN,
A dn inistrative Officer.
MAY 2, 1935.
