REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
SIR: On August 19, 1933, you approved a Code of Fair Compe-
tition for the Lumber and Timber Products Industries.
This is a report on Lumber Code Authority Amendment Number
88, the public hearing on which was conducted in Washington,
D. C., beginning on April 3, 1934, in accordance with the provisions
of the National Industrial Recovery Act.
The Amendment contemplates the revision of portions of fair
trade practices embodied in Schedule B of the Lumber and
Timber Products Industries Code.
The fair trade practices which are included in this Amendment
are similar to those included in other Codes, and it is believed by
the Code Authority and the Deputy Administrator that their adop-
tion will result in more ethical business relations in the Lumber
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to us on said
Amendment 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 gen-
eral welfare by promoting the organization of industry for the pur-
pose of cooperative action among trade groups, by including 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 restric-
tions of productions (except. as may be temporarily required), by
increasing the consumption of industrial and agricultural products
through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving un-
employment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
(b) The 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 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 de signed
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
For these reasons, therefore, we have approved this Amendment
to this Code.
For the National Industrial Recovery Board:
W. A. HARRIMAN,
A dmininstrative Officer.
