REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White Hfowi.
Sr,: An applic:itioin has been duly made pursuant to and in full
compliance with the provisions of the National Industrial Recovery
Act, for an Amnendnmelnt to the Code of Fair Competition for the
Alloy Casting Industry, submittedd by the Code Authority for the
The existing provision of Article V, Section 2, of the Code for
said Industry, is entirely inadequate in view of Executive Order
6678 and Administrative Order X-36, and it is therefore evident that
the auielndmient to Article V of said Code, the provisions of which
follow closely the text of the above mentioned Orders, will over-
come the existing inadequate provisions.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said
an i.1indnltnt 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 amendment to said Code and the Code as amended are
well designed to promote the policies and purposes of Title I of
the National Indii-trial Recovery Act including the removal of ob-
structions to the free flow of interstate and foreign commerce which
tend to diminish the amounnt 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 inducing and
ilaintaining united action of labor and management under adequate
governmental sanction and supervise ion, by eliminating unfair com-
petitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible. utilization of
the present p)rodLuctive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue
restriction of production (except. as may be temporarily required),
by increasing the consumption of industrial and agricultural prod-
uiets through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving
unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
re hnlbilit eating industry.
(b) The Code as an;enled complies in all respects with the perti-
nnct provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limita-
tion Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7, and
Sii section (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The amendment. and the Code as amended are not designed
to and will not lpenuit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(d) The aniendment 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.
(c) 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 this amendment,
such approval and such amendment to take effect in fifteen (15)
days, unless good cause to the contrary is shown to me before that
time and I issue a subsequent order to that effect.
HUGH S. JOHNSON,
JULY 22, 1934.
