REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
SIR: This is a report on amendments to the Code of Fair Competi-
tion for the Steel Casting Industry, a public hearing having been
duly held thereon in Washington, D.C., on June 14, 1934, in accord-
ance with the provisions of the National Industrial Recovery Act.
The Code of Fair Competition for the Steel Casting Industry was
approved by your Order dated November 2, 1933, and amended by
my Order of August 3, 1934.
The first amendment provides that no agency or subdivision shall
sell, or offer to sell, any product at a price lower than the price filed
by a member of such agency or subdivision.
The second amendment provides for the addition of several unfair
trade practices to Schedule D of the approved Code relating only to
The Assistant 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 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 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 restric-
tion of production (except as may be temporarily required), by in-
creasing the consumption of industrial and agricultural products
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
For these reasons, therefore, I have approved these amendments.
HUGH S. JOHNSON,
AUGUST 24, 1934.
AMENDMENT TO CODE OF FAIR COMPETITION FOR THE
STEEL CASTING INDUSTRY
Article VII, Section 3 is hereby amended to read as follows:
If the agency of any subdivision or product classification so
decides, no member of the Industry within such subdivision or prod-
uct classification shall sell or offer for sale, directly or indirectly, by
any means whatsoever, any product of the Industry included within
a subdivision or product classification for which the agency shall
have given notice requiring the filing of price lists, at a price less
than the price shown for such product in the list filed by such
Add the following new Sections to Schedule D of said Code:
SECTION 8. Furnish pattern equipment or alterations thereof at
less than the actual cost of production; provided, however, that if
the patterns are and remain the property of the foundry producing
them, it shall not be construed as a violation of this provision for
such foundry to absorb the cost of patterns or alterations thereof
in the case of Miscellaneous Railway Car Castings when ordered
in quantities of 500 or more pieces from one pattern at one time."
SECTION 9. Absorb the cost of any insurance that may be carried
to protect customers' patterns against fire and/or the elements."
SECTION 10. Accept responsibility, where there is no liability, for
consequential, special or contingent damages, or offer to do more
than replace castings rejected due to defective workmanship and/or
SECTION 11. Absorb any inspection charges incident to inspection
by outside individuals or agents performed at the request of the
SECTION 12. Quote or communicate to customers, directly or in-
directly, a price before the effective date thereof permissible under
