REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The Wh~ite Hous-e.
Sm: The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said
amendment to said Code having found as herein set forth and on the
basis of all the proceedings in this matter;
J find that:
(a) The amendment to said Ciode 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 ob-
structions to the free flow of interstate and foreign commerce which
tend to diminish the amount thereof, and will provide for the gen-
eral w~elfare by promoting the organization of industry for the pur-
pose 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 com-
petitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the
present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue rest~ric-
tions of production, by increasing the consumption of industrial and
agrricultural products through increasing purchasing power, by9 reduc-
ingr andl relievingr unemployment, by improving standards of abor,~
and by otherwise rehabilitating industry.
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the perti-'
nent provisions of said Tit~le of said Act,_ incluiing without limi-
tation Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsectio~n (a) of Section 7, and
Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Code empowers the Code Authority to present the afore-
said amendment on behalf of the industry as a whole.
(d) The amendment and the Code as amended are not designed to
and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The amendment 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
(g) The amendment deals with equalization of minimum wages
as between geographical areas. It represents a minor reduction in
sawmill, factory and logging rates in the North Central Hardwood
region, incluiding the States of Illinois, Indiana and Ohio. This
region is surrounded on all sides except directly west, where no
lumber m~anufacturing industry exists;, by substantially lower wage
rates. It. is claimed by many operators in these States that they are
unable to operate under the existing wage rates and that, conse-
quently, they are closing their mills.
For these reasons, therefore, I have approved this amendment to
