REPORT TO THEI PRESIDENT:
The W~ihite House.
SIR: Undcer the Code of Fair Competition for the Lllnuher~l and
Timberl Pr~odulcts Industries, as approved by you on August 19, 1933,
thle TLumberCI Code Akuthority has submitttel its Amendment, which is
included and uIttachedt'.
This s a report of the Hearing on th e fregroing Amnendmenrit con-
ducted January 22, 1984, in the B3all IRoom of the Rtaleigh H~otel,
Washington, D.C., in accordance with the provisions of the National
Industrial Recovetry Act.
Thris ~Amendmclent chongr~es the w-age rate in the Black Hills Forest
region of South. Dakota and Wliyoming to equalize the wages in th~is
region withn the wage rates which plrevail in the territoryT from which
the employees~ are dlrawn\~. The prent~~ Code wage rate for this
region is the same as in the den~se fir forests of Oregon and WaTshingr-
ton, while the timber operate ions are similar to those in N'orthern
Mi~nnesota alnd W7isc~onsinl and the laborers are drawn fromt the latter
Unless the wage rates in these two territories are equralizedl it will
be impossible for the operators in the Black Hills Forest region to
continue to give satisfa-ctory employment to labor because of the
excessive cost of the lumber operation.
The Deputy_ Administrator in his final report to me on said amend-
ment to said Code~ having found as herein set forth and on the basis
of all the proceedings in this matter:
I: find that:
(a) T'he Amendment to said Codle and the Code as amended are
wPell designed to pr~omote the policies and purposes of Title I. of the
NIational Industrial Rcover\-1y Act including the removal of obstruc-
tions to the free flow of inltclrstate and foreign. commerce which ~tend
to diminish the amount thereof, and will provide for the general
welfare by promoti;ng the organization of industry for the purpose of
coop~erativ-e action of labor and management under adequa~lte grov-
ernmelintal sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair competi-
tive practices, by prom~c-tinlg the fullest possible utilization of the
present productive capac(.ity of industries, by avoiding undue re-
str~ic~tionl of production (exceptlt as may be temporarily retquiredl), by
incr~eas~ing the consumption of industrial and agricultural products
through increasing purchasing power1, b reducing and relievinga
unemploymertnt, by improving standards oflabor, and by otherwise
(b) The C~ode as amendedt complies in all respects with the per-
tinent provisions of said Title of said Act, inc~ludcingi without limi-
tation subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7 and
Subsection (b) of Sec~tionl 10 thecreof.
(e) TIhe Code empowers thle Code ~Authoritly to present the afore-s
said Amlendmnent on behalf of the inlustr~y as a whole.
(d) The Amendminent, and the Code as amendecd aire not de~signedl
to and' will nlot permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) Th"]e Amenen ntllll and the Code as amended are nlot itesigned to
and will not elimrinate or oppress`~ small enterprises and will not
operate to discriminutt e against tiemi.
(f) Thloue engaged in other steps of the economic process have
nlot been dleprivedc of the right to be heard prior to approval of said
]For these reasons, therefore, I have ap~prov,\ed this Amendment to
