REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
SIR: On August. 19, 1933, you approved a Code of Fair Competi-
tion for the Lumber and Timber Products Industries.
This is a report on a Hearing on Amendments Nos. 34 and 37 to
that Code conducted in Washington, D.C., beginning on January 22,
1934, in accordance with the National Industrial Recovery Act.
The Amiendments contemplate the etnabli.ihment. of a Wooden Pail
and Tub Subdivision to the Wooden Package Division of the Lumber
and Timber Products Code and were presented by representatives
of the industry over which the 'ontemplated Subdivision will have
jurisdiction, said to represent 94.3 per cent of the value of such prod-
ucts nminufuc.tured and distributed in the United State, and repre-
senlting with approval 93 per cent of the invested capital.
In 192S approximately one tlhonu-nd and seven hundred (1,700)
employees were engaged in the Wooden Pail and Tub Industry and
the sales for that year are estimate at $3,427,720.00. The estimated
demand for 1934 for the products of the industry is below the sales
for 1933 which were estimated at $1,634.902.01.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said
Ameilndments 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 Ameni.lnnt.s to said Code and the Code as amended are
well designed to pronmte the policies and p1uripo.e-=. 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 diminihli the amount thereof, and will provide for the general
welfare by promoting the organization of industry for the purpose
of cooperative action among trade groups, by inducing and main-
taining united action of labor and management under adequate
governmental sanction and sulperviion, by eliminating unfair com-
petitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the
present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue re-
striction-, of production (except as may be temporarily required),
by increasing the consumption of industrial and agricultural prod-
ucts 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-
nrent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limi-
tation Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7 and
Sub:evttion (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Code empowers the Code Authority to present the afore-
said Amenlnents on behalf of the industry no 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 the Code.
