REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
SIR: Under the Code of Fair Competition for the Washing and
Ironing Machine Manufacturing Industry, as approved on Novem-
ber 4, 1933, the Code Authority has submitted a proposed amend-
ment to Article VI, Subsection B, and on which Public Hearing was
held in Room 2066, Departienr t of Commerce Building, Washington,
D. C., June 4, 1934, in accordance with the provisions of the Act.
Insofar as this amendment, incorporates additions to the text, the
additions are the result of either original oversight or of practical
experience under the Code which has demonstrated their need.
The Deputy Administrator in his report to me on said amendment
to said Code having found as herein set forth and on the basis of
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 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 wel-
fare by promoting the organization of industry for the purpose of
cooperative action among trade groups, by inducing and maintaining
united action of labor and management under adequate governmental
sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair competitive practices,
by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the present productive
capacity of the Industries, by avoiding undue restrictions of pro-
duction (except as may be temporarily required), by increasing the
consumption of industrial and agricultural products through in-
creasiing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving unemploy-
ment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise rehabili-
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the per-
tinent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limi-
tation Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7 and
Sulbseltin, (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The amendment and the Code as amended are not designed to
and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(d) The amendment and the Code as amended are not designed
to and will not eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not
opr'iate to diwiriminitiate against them.
(e) Thrc ce1vigigeLd in other steps of the economic procei-s have
not been deprived of the right to be heard prior to approval of said
For these reasons, therefore, I have approved the anlerlllniciit to
take effect fifteen (15) days from the date tluihreof, unless good cause
to the contrary is shown to the Admliiii-'trntor before that time and
the Adminiist rator issues a sublqlellint order to that effect.
