REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT


The PRESIDENT,
The White House.
SIR: This is a report on the Supplemental Code of Fair Compe-
tition for the Sawmill Machinery Subdivision of Machinery and
Allied Products Industry, a public hearing on which was held in
Washington, D. C., on Decemllber 6, 1933, and reconvened on De-
cember 21, 1933. The hearings were conducted in full accordance
with the provisions of Title I of the National Industrial Recovery
Act.
GLNFI.\L STATEMENT

.The Saiwmiill Machinery Subdivision, being truly represent;tative
of the manufacturreir of the products defined in Article II of the
Supplemental Code, has 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 Ma-
chinery and Allied Produict. Industry, approved by you on the
seventeenth day of March, 1934.
The Subdivision includes the manufacture for sale of machinery
and parts thereof for use in sawmills for converting saw logs or
tinmber- into lumber and other timber products, and includes all
those engaged in the aii iiluf;a.turi of such machinery for sale.

ECONOMY I I'FFICT

Annual s:lles in the Subdivision, acerding to the code applica-
tion, declined from $2,540,000 in 1929 to $261,000 in 1932, or 90
per cent. The Subdivision has not furnilsed direct figures which
would indicate an increase in production for 1933. Aggregate in-
vested capital and production capacity have rm;aiined reasonably

E-tiniitllte showing employilment. for the citi-r, Subdivision sub-
mitted in the code application indicate that niiployment declined
frmii 657 wage' earners in 1929 to 1lS in 1933, or 71.4 percent.
The i.'tect of the 40-hour provision with production at more normal
levels may be (.sliiiiated on a basis of the 1930-131 average of total
man-hoiurs per v\-ek by dividing by the number of hours prescribed
in the code. After 1929, man-hom -;: declined steadily from 34,690 to
a minimum of 6,~;u in 1932, or approximiniely 80 percen~t. Average
man-hours iin l'3:, iniir-cr ;ia- to 13,750, or 98.5 percent, and have
relliniin ed almost constant.
If it is assumed that the 17,745 averagrc man-hours for 1930-1931
are representative of the volume of production for those years, and
a ea-T(Ii;tublt iin'atir of 1tman-homur r,(iiiiricints in a more normal








period. the adoption of the 40-hour week w\nild require a force of
apprixijiimat'ly 440 employee" or 67 pl vniit of the 19211 working
level.
Owiin to the inmp-i-ibility of all employees of the Subdivision
w1\l1king the maximum 40) hours, thle avri\ile work \week will be
.-hlrter, :;iy 3; assumed e tfet ive hours, and mi!lpit.y itnt correspond-
ingly greater; viz. 490 workers will be inii.,dll to ,prdllr' f the
.I 30--1 "31 volume.
The minimum wm:iac provisions for the Subdivisions which are op-
erating iiler the Code of the lMalhinery and Allied Products In-
Oul-trv. are based on a flat minimum hn'rlyl rate of 32 cents per hour
for the South and the following city population differentials for all
other sections of the United States:
Over I. 4 i.ii1j I-i-i-l;ttion___----- ------ -__ ---- 40 cents per hour.
li,. ii0 to )i,(jl0:1 populationu----------------------- cents per hour.
10,000 pliuilfiatil and under____--------------------____ :'; cents per hour.
In addition to the minimum wai-e rates -hl\wnIi above, the Code
prlovid-e that women engaged in substantially the same work as
Imen. -hall receive the same rate of pay as such men employees; that
the minimum wage for women e.Implhiye. engaged in plant operation
shall be not less than 87.5 percent of the proper rate for the locality
in which ,employed as -pe-l fihd; and that the minimum in the South
shall be not less than 32 cents per hour.
Distribution of the number of factory workers receiving classified
rat.es. in the ipecified areas are not available. Consequently, it is only
possible to estimate the approximate number of factory worker., who
will receive the benefit of the proposed minimum hourly rates, re-
gardless of location, on the basis of the number of fact-r\y workers
re-,.,i\ii' less than the de.-ina-ited hourly rates as of June 15, 1I9:0.

B3;r,,i on the distribution as of June 15, 1933 and on the .specified
perc:-.tage- of the number of factory workers receiving less than the
de-ignriited rates shown in the above table, the adoption of the pro-
pn1-c l minimum rates will probably cau e- an increase in factory pay-
rolls. The e.-tilmated incre;ise as of June 15, 1033, regardless of loca-
tion of tle worker-. will probably, under the most favorable condi-
tions. not exceed 14.0 per cenvt a-nuning only upward adjiustmeint in
the brackets below the 40-cent ininiinum and no change in man-hour
requirements.

basis of all the pr'.L-,.-'lii w-4 in this matter:
We find that:
(a) Said Siuppl,,iiitiil Code is well dcigiined to promote the
policies and purposes of Title I of the National In(dl-trial Recovery
Act, including removal of obstructions to the free flow of initertate
and foreign coiniirn-. which tend to diminish the amount thereof
and will provide for the g iwnr:il welf:lir by promoting the orlganiza-
tion of industry for the purpose of cooperative action along the
trade groups, by inducing and maintaining united action of labor
and manago' itiin under adequate governmental action and super-
vision, by (cli iiiiit in g unfair competitive practices, by pronot ing til
fullest possible iitilization of the pre.--cint productive capacity of
industries, by avoiding undue restriction of production (except as
may be temporarily required), by increasing the con-iunmption of
industrial and agricultural products through increasing purchasing
power, by reducing and relieving unemploymentn, by improving
standards of labor, and by otlierwi-c rehabilitating industry.







(b) Said Subilivi ion normally employs not more than 50,000
employee ; and is not classified by us as a major illndi-try.
(c) The Suppleliinc tal Code as approved ,comiplies in all respects
with the pertinent provi-sions of said title of said Act, including
without limitation Siub-ectiion (a) of Sectin 3, Sub'-ction (a) of
Section 7, and Siibl-ection (b) of Secrtion 10 thereof; and that the
applicant association is an indillu-tial n--owiation truly repr,'-.enta-
tive of the aforesaid Subdivision; and that said association imposes
no inequitable re-trictions on admission to membership therein.
(d) The Supplemental Code is not digillned to and will not per-
mit monopolies or monopolistic practice .
(e) The Supplemental Code is not de-iguied to and will not elimi-
nate or oppresl small enterpri-e'i and will not operate to di(,rilnmilate
against them.
(f) Those enl;igedi in other steps of the -'Imnwmi' process have
not been deprived of the right, to be heard prior to approval of said
Supplemental Code.
For these reta-in-,, theref.,re. vtwe have approved this Supphlemental
Code, provided that certain provision relating to price publication
are stayed as stated in the Order.

of -uich methods.

Alr;,TIL VII--u.L1NG~.o BP-OW REASONABLE COST

SECTION 1. Whl-i the Code Authority determines that an iemer-
gency exists in this Slalivi-ion and that the cause thereof is de-
strnictive p_,ri*e-,n'tting such as to render ineffective or seriously
endanger the mainteiialnce of the provisions of this Supplemental
Code, the Code Authority may cause to be determined the lowest
reasonable cost of the products of this Subllivision, such d,.tcrim1ina-
tion to be subject to such notice and hearing as the National In-
dustrial Recovery Board may requi e. The National Industrial
Recovery Board may approve, disapprove, or modify the deter-







mnination. 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 cot 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 condition have changed, the Code Author-
ity, upon its own initiative or upon the request of any interested
party, shall cause the determination to be reviewed.
ARTICLE VIII-PRICE LISTS

(a) If and when Code Authority determines that in any group
of the Subdivision it has been the generally recognized practice to
sell a specified product on the basis of net price lists, or price lists
with discount sheets, and terms of sale and payment, each employer
engaged in the manufacture of such product shall, within ten (10)
(days after notice of such determination, file with Code Authority a
net price list, or a price list with disculnt sheet, as the case may be,
individually prepared by him showing his current price-, or prices
and discounts, and terms of sale and payment for such specified
product, and Code Authority shall immediately publish and send
copies thereof to all known employers who are cooperating under
this Supphiniiiital Code as de- .ribed in Article V (d) and engaged
in the manufacture of such specified products.
Revised price lists and/or dil-ecount sheets and/or terms of sale
and payment may be filed from time to time thereafter with the
Code Authority by any stuch employer, to become operative upon the
d;t,1 specified therein, but such revi ed price lists and/or (diUsount
sheets and/or terms of sale and payment shall be filed with the Code
Authority ten (10) days in advance of the operative date. Copies
thereof, with notice of the operative date specified, shall be iniii:di-
ately published and -ent to all employers coopenrting under the Sup-
jple' ntiitil Code as de-c'ribed in Article V (d), any of whom iilvy
file, if he so desires, revisions of his price lists and/or discount shletes
and/or terms of sale and payment, which shall become effective, upon
the date when the revised price list and/or discount sheets and/or
terms of sale and paynlirnt first filed shall go into effect.
(b) If and when Code Authority shall determine that in any
group of the Subtlivi-inn not now selling its product on the basis of
price lists and/or discount sheets and/or terms of sale and payment,
the distribution or marketing conditions in the group, are the .-ime
as. or similar to, the distribution or marketing conditions in a group
where the use of price lists and/or discount s-lwets and/or terms of
.-lle and payime.nt is well recognized, and that a system of selling on
net price lists or price lists and discount sheets with terms of sale
i1d lipn 'lnmnt for such ip)rified product should be put into effect in
such group,11 then c;ih employer in such grii p shall within twenty
(20) (lays after notice of such determinnation, file with Code Akuthor-
ity net price lists or price li-t; and discount sheets, with terms of sale
and p1iynie t. slowing his prices and discount sheets, with terms of
sale and p:iycnt, and such price lis-t and/or discount sheets, and/or
terms of sale and l,:iriient mj;y be thereafter revised in the manner
