REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT


The PRESIDENT,
The White House.
SI: This is a report on the Supplemental Code of Fair Competi-
tion for the Hydraulic Machinery Subdivision of Machinery and
Allied Products Industry, a Public Hearing on which was held in
Washington, D.C., on December 21, 1933. The Hearing was con-
ducted in full acnord nce with the provisions of Title I of the
National Industrial Recovery Act.

GENERAL STATEMENT

The Hydraulic Machinery Subdivision, being truly representative
of the manufacturers of the products defined in Article II of the
Supplemental Code, ha.; elected to formulate and submit a Supple-
mental Code of Fair Competition as provided in the second para-
graph of Article I of the Code of Fair Competition for the Machinery
and Allied Products Industry, approved by you on the seventeenth
day of March, 1,-34.
The Hyraulic Machiniery Subdivision means the manufacture for
sale, erecting, and selling of hydraulic machinery of all kinds and
parts thereof, whether using water or any other liquid as enumerated
in detail in the Supplemental Code attached thereto. It excludes,
however, prime movers such as turbines, water wheels, and their
accessory equiipni.nt, hydraulic brakes and/or parts therefore, hy-
drilulic shock absorbers, hydraulic bumpers and hydraulic dump
trucks. It includes all those engaged in such manufacture for sale.

ECONOMIC EFFECT

This Subdivision has been severely affected by the recent depres-
sion. This is evidenced by the steady decline in annual sales since
1929. The volume of production as reported by the Division of
E'onomnic Research and Planning declined from $10,000,000 in 1929
to $2,000,000 in 1932, or 80Oc. Sales as reported for the first six
months in 1'.33 amounted to only $700,000. However, an increase in
production is indicated by an increase in man-hours reported since
the second quarter of 1933.
Employment, of approximately 1,456 factory workers in 1929
declined to about 651 workers, or 55%, during the first quarter of
1903. Since then employment has increased.
Approximately 44"; of the factory workers in June 1933 were
working more than 40 hours per week. The average work week
in October 1::33 was 37.8 hours.
In June 1~I3 about 2.5'; of the f;mctory workers were receiving
less than 40 cents pir lhour. The lowest minimum wage as of Oc-
tuil.r l1',:3 reported by the Industry was 30 cents per hour.









The wage provisions for the Subdivision, which is operating under
the Code of the Machinery and Allied Products Industry, provide
that employees engaged in plant operations shall be paid as follows:
(1) in cities of more than 50,000 population and their immediate
vicinity, 40 cents per hour; (2) in cities of more than 10,000 but not
more than 50,000 population and their immediate vicinity, which
cities are not in the immediate vicinity of a city of more than 50,000
population, 38 cents per hour; (3) in cities of 10,000 population or
less and their immediate vicinity, which cities are not in the imme-
diate vicinity of a city of more than 10,000 population, 36 cents per
hour, except that employees engaged in plant operations in all local-
ities in the states of Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina,
Georgia, Florihi, Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, Louisi-
ana, Texas, and Oklahoma, shall be paid not less than 32 cents per
hour.
When females do substantially the same work as males or replace
males, they shall receive the same pay. However, no female em-
ployee shall be paid less than 871/2% of the proper rate for the local-
ity in which employed.
Office boys and girls and apprentices shall be paid not less than
80% of the minimum wage.
Employees other than those engaged in plant operations shall
receive not less than $15.00 per week.
The Code provides that no person under 16 years of age shall be
employed in the Subdivision.

ESTIMATED NUMBER OF FACTORY WORKERS RECEIVING LESS THAN
DESIGNATED HOURLY RATES
Distribution of factory workers receiving less than the minimum, regardless
of location

1 Based on the distribution as of June 15, 1933, and on the specified percentages of the number of factory
workers receiving less than the designated rates shown in the above table, the adoption of the proposed mini-
mum rates will probably cause an increase in factory pay rolls. The estimated increase probably will not
exceed four percent.

RESUME OF SUPPLEMENTAL CODE

FIND N(S
The Assistant Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on
said Supplemental Code having found as herein set forth and on
the basis of all the proceedings in this matter:
I find that:
(a) Said Supplemental Code is well designed to promote the
policies and purposes of Title I of the National Industrial Recovery
Act, including removal of olbistructions 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 organ-
ization of industry for the purpose of coolwrative action among the
trade groups, by inducing and maintaining united action of labor
and management under adequate governmental sanctions and super-
vision, by eliminating unfair competitive practices, by promoting
the fullest possible utilization of the present productive capacity of
industries, by avoiding undue restriction of production (except as
may be temporarily required), by increasing the consumption of in-
dustrial and agricultural products through increasing purchasing
power, by reducing and relieving unemployment, by improving
-tandards of labor, and by otherwise rehabilitating industry.
(b) Said Subdivision normally employs not more than 50,000
employees; and is not classified by me as a major industry.
(c) The Supplemental Code as approved complies in all respects
with the pertinenlt provisions of said Title of said Act, including
without limitation Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of
Section 7, Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof; and that the appli-








cant. association is an industrial association truly representative of
the aforesaid Subdivision; and that said asso-iaItion imposes no
inequitable restrictions on admission to membership therein.
(d) The Suppleme'ntal Code is not designed to and will not permit
monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The Supplemental Code is not design-'d to and will not elimi-
nate or oppress small enterprises and will not operate to discrimi-
nate 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
Supplemental Code.
For these reasons, therefore, I have approved this Supplemental
Code.
Respect fully,
HUGH S. JOHNSON,
Admh; i.s rator.

istrative purposes.








There shall be a Group Code Authority approved or appointed
by Code Authority for each such group.
(j) If formal complaint is made to Code Authority, that pro-
visions of this Supplemental Code have been violated by any em-
ployer, the Code Authority or the proper Group Code Authority
shall investigate the complaint and to that end, may to the extent
permitted by the Act, cause such further investigation, examination
or audit to be made., as may be deemed necessary. If such investiga-
tion is made by Group Code Authority, it shall report the results

be proposed to the Administrator as amendments to this Supple-
mental Code and such other codes.

ARTICLE VI-A('CiUNTING AND COSTING

The Code Authority shall cause to be formulated an accounting
system and methods of cost finding and/or estimating capable of
use by all employers of the Subdivision. After such system and
methods have been formulated, full details concerning them shall
be made available to all employers. Thereafter all employers shall
determine and/or estimate costs in accordance with the principles
of such methods, with such variation therefrom as may be required
to meet individual conditions affecting any member or group of
members; provided, however, that any such variation shall not
destroy the validity, and/or accuracy of the said accounting prin-
ciples and methods.
ARTICLE VII-SEILINIG ]ELOW REASONABLE COST

SECTION 1. When the Code Authority determines that an emer-
gency exists in this Subdivision and that the cause thereof is de-
structive price-cutting such as to render ineffective or seriously en-
danger the maintenance of the provisions of this Supplemental Code,
the Code Authority may cause to be determined the lowest reason-
able cost of the products of this Subdivision, such determination to be
subject to such notice and hearing as the Administrator may require.
The Administrator may approve, disapprove, or modify the deter-
mination. Thereafter, during the period of the emergency, it shall
be an unfair trade practice for any employer of the Subdivision to
sell or offer to sell any products of the Subdivision for which the
lowest reasonable cost has been determined at such prices or upon
such terms or conditions of sale that the buyer will pay less therefore
than the lowest reasonable cost of such products.
When it appears that conditions have changed, the Code Authority,
upon its own initiative or upon the request of any. interested party,
shall cause the determination to be reviewed.








SECTION 2. The foregoing Section (1) shall not apply to (a)
dropped lines, or (b) seconds, or (c) inventories which must be
converted into cash to meet emergency needs, all of which may be
disposed of by any employer at any price and on any terms or con-
ditions, but only if such employer, not less than two weeks before
such proposed disposal, has filed with Code Authority a statement
in writing setting forth the facts of, and reasons for, such proposed
disposal and the price and terms and conditions of sale, and Code
Authority has not, (with the approval of the Administrator), before
the termination of such two week period, in writing, disapproved
the proposed disposal. Notice of such disposal, if not disapproved,
shall be sent immediately to all employers manufacturing products
of equivalent design, character, quality or specifications, who may
sell such products at prices and on terms and conditions as favor-
able as those stipulated in the proposed disposal, when meeting the
competition of such proposed disposal.
SECTION 3. The foregoing Section (1) shall not apply to a sale
made in order to meet competition on products manufactured out-
side the United States. For such disposal, any employer may sell,
at prices and on terms and conditions as favorable as those of the
competing foreign product, but only if he has first reported to the
Code Authority his intention so to sell, and the facts as to the
competition which justifies such action.
ARTICLE VIII-PRICES

1. Proposals submitted by an employer shall not be revised except:
(a), when a change in the specifications is to be made, in which
case the revised proposal must equal only the change in the specifi-
cations; (b), upon the general reopening of bids.
2. Proposals shall not specify: (a) any discounts except one to
cover cash payment in ten (10) days which discount must not
exceed /2 of 1% ; (b) any allowance for freight or transportation.
ARTICLE IX-TRADE PRACTICES

Each of the following acts and practices is deemed to be inimical
to the best interests of the Subdivision and of the public, and each
is, therefore, hereby declared to be and to constitute an unfair
method of competition, and is hereby prohibited; viz:
1. Destructive Price-Cutting.-Indulging in destructive price-
cutting.
