REPORT TO 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 Amendments Nos. 10 (2)
and 22, which are included and attached.
This is a report on the hearing on the foregoing Amendments,
conducted in Washington on January 22 and 23, 1934, in accordance
with the provisions of the National Industrial Recovery Act.
These Amendments establish an administrative subdivision for
Intercoastal Distributors under the West Coast Logging and Lumber
Division. Since the completion of the Panama Canal, the Atlantic
Seaboard has become one of the larger markets for lumber manu-
factured on the West Coast. In developing this channel of distribu-
tion, manufacturers and wholesalers have become inter-related com-
petitively to an exceptional degree. Therefore, it is intended that
this Subdivision shall include within its jurisdiction every distribu-
tor engaged in the function of selling West Coast lumber on the
Atlantic Coast. Evidence and information developed at the Hear-
ing indicate that this proposal is in the interest of stabilizing the
market for this particular lumber. All parties, whether manufac-
turers or wholesalers, involved are agreed that this effort to secure
stabilization through cooperation is most desirable.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said
Amendments to said Code having found as herein set forth and on
the basis of all the proceedings in this matter;
I find that:
(a) The Amendments to said Code and the Code as amended are
well designed to promote the policies and purposes of Title 1 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 among trade groups, by inducing and main-
taining united 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 re-
strictions of production (except as may be temporarily required),
by increasing the consumption of industrial and agricultural prod-
ucts through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving
unemployment, 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 Amendments on behalf of the industry as a whole.
(d) The Amendments and the Code as amended are not designed
to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The Amendments 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 Amendments are regulatory of the operations of only a
portion of the Wholesale Lumber Distributors, and the administra-
tion of the Code for the distributors subject to the jurisdiction of
these amendments is under the supervision of a manufacturers
For these reasons, therefore, I have approved these Amendments
to the Code but have qualified my approval with the condition that
if and when Amendments to the Lumber and Timber Products Code
regulating the operations of all wholesale lumber distributors are
presented, or if a proposed Code of Fair Competition for Whole-
sale Lumber Distributors is submitted to the Administration, con-
sideration will be given to the revision of these Amendments so as
to transfer the supervisory powers of the West Coast Logging and
Lumber Division to the agency established for the administration
of a Code for all wholesale lumber distributors.
