REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
SIR: Under the Code of Fair Competition for the Lumber and
Timber Products Industries, as approved by you on August 19, 1933,
the Lumber Code Authority has submitted Amendments Nos. 10 (3)
and 27, which are included and attached.
This is a report of the hearing on the foregoing Amendments,
conducted in Wa..hington on January 22 and 23, 1934, in accordance
with the provisions of the National Industrial Recovery Act.
These Ann iidnll -ijts establish an administrative division for manu-
facturers of Specialty Wood Flooring. The products of this Divi-
sion are produced invariably for specific installations, which practice
presents unique problems in Code administration. This group rep-
resenting a substantial majority of the Industry is well equipped to
handle these problems. No protests to this proposal were filed at the
hearing or since and the request for administrative authority on the
part of this group is justified by the information and evidence which
has been submitted.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said
Amendments to said Code having found as herein set forth and on
the basis of all the proceedings in this matter;
I find that:
(a) The Amendments 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 wel-
fare by promoting the organization of industry for the purpose of
cooperative action among trade groups, by inducing and maintaining
united action of labor and management under adequate governmental
sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair competitive prac-
tices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the present pro-
ductive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue restrictions of pro-
duction (except as may be temporarily required), by increasing the
consumption of industrial and agricultural products through increas-
ing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving unemployment, by
improving standards of labor, and by otherwise rehabilitating
(b) The Code as amended complies in all Irespects with the per-
tinent 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 Amendments on behalf of the industry as a whole.
(d) The Amendments and the Code as amended are not designed
to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The Amendments 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
For these reasons therefore, I have approved these amendments to
