REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The W~hite Hous~e.
Srn: Under the Codle of Fair Comnpetition for the Ltunber and
Timber Products Indlustriesr, as approved by you on August 19,
1933, the Lumber Code A~uthorit~y has submitted its Amnendments
Nos. 60 andl 61, which are included and attached.
This is n report on the Hearing on the foregaoinig Amendmnentss
conducted in the Carlton Room of the Canrlton Hotel, W~ashington,
D.C)., on Alarch 27~ to M~arch 30, 1934, in accordatnce with the provi-
sions of the Nationlal Industrial Recovery Aict.
These Amnendmnents establish an Admninistrative Subdivision for
California Wtater Disrtriult~ors under the West Coast Logging and
Approximately fifteenl to twenty percent of the We'st Coast lumber
is manrketed through th~e California p~orts and~ the California Whlole-
salers' Lumber Association,, the proponents of these Amendments,,
represent. eighty percent of the volumie of the lumber distr~ibutedl in
The manufacturers andl wholesalers engagedl in distribution in thiis
territory are closely inter-related and bothi are agreedl that the
Amendments will secure stabilizationi of thie mnr~kett andl protect b~othl
manufactu rers a ncd dist ributors.
The Amnendmnents also establish minimumn wnges of 410 cents in the
South and 45 cents in the N~orth, p~roviding protection for several
thousand labore~rs not. now proteclted- by t~he Code.
The Deputy Administenator in hiis final report to me on saidl
Amendments to said Codec having~ found- as herein set forth and on
the basis of all thle prloceedingas in this matter;
I find that:
(a) The Amendmnentss to said Code and the Code as amiended are
well designed to promote the policies and purposes of Title I of th~e
National Indlustrial Recovery Act including the removal of obstrue-
tions to the free flow of interstate a~nd foreign commerce which tend
to diminish the. amount the~e'of, and will provide for the general
welfare by promoting the organization of industry for the purpose of
cooperative action among trade groups, by induucing and mlaintain--
ing united action of labor and management under adequate govern-
mental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair competitive
practices, by promoting the fullest. possible utilization of t!>e present
productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue restrictions of
production (except as mnay be temporarily required), by increasing
the consumption of industrial and agricultural products through in-
creasing purchasing power, by reducing andl relieving unemploy-
ment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise rehabili-
(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.
(c) The Code emnporer~s the Code Authority to present the afore-
said Amendmnents on behalf of thle industry as a whole.
(d) The Amnendments and the Code as amended are not designed
to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The Amendmients and the Code as amnended are not designed
to and will not eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not
operate to dliscriminate against them.
(f) Those engaged in other steps of the economic process have not
been deprivedl of the right to be heard prior to approval of said
Amend men ts.
For these reasons, therefore, I have approved these Amendments
to the Code.
