REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT


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 the Amendments which
are inclluded and attached.
This is a report of the Hearing on the foregoing Amendments,
conducted at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D. C., on Novem-
ber 23, 1933, in accordance with the provisions of the National Indus-
trial Recovery Act.
These Amendments establish an Administrative Division for the
manufacturers of wood crossarms, and were presented by the East
Coast, Inland, and West Coast Crossarm Associations claiming to
repri-elet 66% of the production of the industry. The minimum
wages are the same as those prescribed in the Code and a forty hour
week is established. The proponents believe that these Amendments
will stabilize the industry and eliminate unfair trade practices, which
are now prevalent.
In 1929 there were approximately 500 employees in the industry;
in 1932 the number was estimated at 150. The Amendments are
expected to substantially increase this number.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said
Amendi iinjits to said Code having found as herein set forth and on
the basis of all the p1rc':c dings in this matter;
I find that:
(a) The Amendiments 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 r(e-ni,\'al 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 r action among trade groups, by inducing and main-
taining united action of labor and mnina!rement under adequate
governmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair com-
petitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the
pri-ecnt productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue restric-
tions of production (except as may be temporarily required), by
incre;iing the consumption of industrial and agricultural products
through incrai-ing pur1ihaoing 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 Sub-
section (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(2)

(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 Anmendinents 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 -aid
Amendments.
For these reasons, therefore, I have approved these Amendments
to the Code.
Respe. fully,
HUGH S. JOHNSON,
Adm ins;trator.
