REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The Wh'ite Ho-use.
SmR: On August 19, 1933, you approved a Code of Fair Competit-
tionn for the Lumber and Timber Products Industries.
This is a report. on a Pubhlic Hearing on Amendment No. 31 to that
Code conducted in WVashington, D. Cr. beginning on January 22, 1934,
in accordance with the National Industrial Recovery Act.
The Amiendmnent contemplates a reduction in the minimum wagon
rate in the W'oodlen Package Division in the state of Coloradfo northz
of 380 north latitude to thirty cents per hour.
It is believed that such a reduction will more equitably effectuate
the purposes and policies of the Act and the National Recovery
Admrinistrtionin by~ equalizringr the wagoe burden and thereby bring
about fair competition ".
The: Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said
ASmeendmeent to said C'ode having found as herein set forth and on
the basis of all the proceedings in this matter;
I find that:
(a) The Amendmnent, to said Code~ and the Code as amended are
well designed to promote the policies and purposes of Title I of
the National Indlustrial Recovery Act includino- the removal of
obstructions to t~he fr~ee 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 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
restrictions of production (except as may be: temnpor~arily required),
by increasing the consumption of industrial and agricultural prod-
uerts through increas.ingr pulrchasing power, by reduciing andi relieving
unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
rehabilitation indust ry.
(b) Th-e Code as amended complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limita-
tion Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7 and
Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Code emp~owfers the C~ode Authority to present the afore-
said Am~endment on behalf of the industry as a whole.
(d) The Amendmnent and the Code as amended are not designed
to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The Amnendment and the Code as amended are not designed
to and will not. eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not
operate t.o discriminate against, them.
(f) Those engagoed 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 this Amendment
to the Code.
