REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT


The PRESIDENT,
The White House.
SIR: Under the Code of Fair Competition for the Lumber and
Timber Products Industries, as approved by you on August 19, 1933,
the Lumber Code Authority has submitted its Amendment, which is
included and attached.
This is a report of the Hearing on the foregoing Amendment con-
ducted March 27 to 30, 1934, in Washington, D. C., in accordance
with the provisions of the National Industrial Recovery Act.
This Amendment purports to further restrict the transfer of pro-
duction allotments and is necessitated by the fact that in the past
transfers have been too freely given, resulting in an unfair advantage
to some producers and augmenting of inventories which were already
much too large. Article VIII of the Lumber and Timber Products
Industries Code has limited production in the Industry, but despite
this, the inventories of many mills have been built up resulting in
stocks which are unnecessarily large. This Amendment permits the
Lumber Code Authority to maintain a greater control over produc-
tion and at the same time eliminates abuses which have existed under
administration of the Code as now written.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to us on said amend-
ment to said Code having found as herein set forth and on the basis
of all the proceedings in this matter:
We find that:
(a) The Amendment to said Code 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 obstruc-
tions to the free 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 of labor and management under adequate gov-
ernmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair competi-
tive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the
present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue restric-
tion of production (except as may be temporarily required), by
increasing the consumption of industrial and agricultural products
through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving
unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
rehabilitating industry.
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the per-
tinent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limi-
tation Subsection (a) of Section 8, Subsection (a) of Section 7 and
Subsection (b) of Section 10 hereof.
(c) The Code empowers the Code Authority to present the afore-
said Amendment on behalf of the industry as a whole.






3

(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
Amendment.
For these reasons, therefore, we have approved this Amendment
to the Code.
Respectfully,
NATIONAL INDUSTRIAL RECOVERY BOARD,
By G. A. LYNCH, Administrative Officer.
OCTOBER 6, 1934.












AMENDMENT TO CODE OF FAIR COMPETITION FOR
THE LUMBER AND TIMBER PRODUCTS INDUSTRY

In Article VIII (g), strike out the last sentence and substitute
therefore the following:
"Allotments shall not be cumulative except as authorized in spe-
cific cases under Section (d)(1) of this Article, or in cases of sea-
sonal operations of a division or subdivision under Section (d) (2)
of this Article, and shall not be transferable except that upon appli-
cation, the administrative agency of a division or subdivision, if it
shall find that the nontransferability of an allotment causes or will
cause an undue hardship in any particular case, and if it shall find,
further, that the limitations hereinafter set forth upon the exercise of
its authority do not exist, may authorize, under such equitable con-
ditions and limitations as it shall determine, the transfer of allot-
ments between operations under the same ownership within the same
division or subdivision, provided that such authorization shall not
become effective for a period of fifteen (15) days after the date
thereof, and provided, further, that such authorization, together with
the findings of fact of said agency shall be transmitted on the date
thereof to the Authority and the National Recovery Administra-
tion, and provided further, that such authorization shall be subject
to appeal by any interested party as provided in Article XVII
hereof. No division or subdivision agency shall authorize the trans-
fer of any allotment: (1) from a mill or factory acquired after the
effective date hereof until such mill shall have been operated in good
faith for six consecutive months by the new owner; (2) from one
mill to another unless the species ordinarily produced by both are
substantially the same; or (3) from any mill, the greater part of
whose product may, under the provisions of Article IX, Section (a),
Subsection 2 of this Code, be sold at prices less than the approved
reasonable costs for the division or subdivision, except from a mill
of the same class."
