REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
SIR: Public Hearing on an amendment to the Code of Fair Com-
petition for the Medium and Low Priced Jewelry Manufacturing
Industry submitted by the Schoenthaler-Green-Ellbogen-Wood Com-
mittee, representing 57 manufacturers of fraternity jewelry out of
a possible 100 concerns manufacturing this product, was conducted
in Washington on April 27, 1934, in accordance with the provisions
of the National Industrial Recovery Act.
As a result of said hearing, it is believed that Section C, of Sec-
tion 1, Schedule "A" of the above Code, would tend to establish
The Deputy Administrator in his final report on said Amendment
to said Code having found as herein set forth and on the basis of all
the proceedings in this matter:
It is found that:
(a) The Amendment of 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
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 organization of industry for
the purpose of cooperative action of labor and management under
adequate governmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating
unfair competitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utili-
zation of the present productive capacity of the industries, by avoid-
ing undue restrictions of production (except as may be temporarily
required), by increasing the consumption of industrial and agricul-
tural 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 group was and is an industrial group truly representative
of the manufacturers operating under Schedule A of the Code for
the Industry and that said group imposed and imposes no inequitable
restrictions on admission to membership therein and has applied for
(d) The amendments and the Code are not designed to and will
not eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not operate to
discriminate against them.
(e) Those engaged in other steps of the economic process have not
been deprived of the right to be heard prior to the approval of said
amendments and modifications.
For these reasons the amendment has been approved.
For the National Industrial Recovery Board:
