REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
Sm: This is a report on the amendment of the Code of Fair Com-
petition for the Furniture Manufacturing Industry as approved by
me December 7, 1933. Application was made under date of May 81,
1934, by the Code Authority for the Furniture Manufacturing Indus-
try, for amendment of the provisions of Article VI of the Code.
Fair notice of opportunity to be heard on this proposed amendment
was given to all interested parties.
This amendment was proposed in accordance with office memoran-
dum, dated February 3, 1934, and has since been revised, with the
assent of the Code Authority, in accordance with suggestions made
by the Legal Division. It is intended to govern the collection
of assessments for code administration by the Furniture Code
This amendment does not in any way affect the labor provisions
of the Code, nor anything other than assessment for the expenses of
The Assistant Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on
said amendment to said Code having found as herein set forth and
on the basis of the proceedings in this matter:
I 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 of labor and management under adequate gov-
ernmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair competi-
tive practices, by promoting the fullest possible untilization of the
present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue restric-
tion of production (except as may be temporarily 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
(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
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
I believe the amendment to be fair to labor, to the consumer, and
to the industry, and for these reasons, therefore, I have approved
