REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
SIR: This is a report on the proposed modification for the Code of
Fair Competition for the Graphic Arts Industries as approved by
you on February 17, 1934. A Notice of Opportunity to be Heard
was issued on July 7, 1934, and full opportunity was given to all
interested parties to file criticisms of, objections to or suggestions
concerning said modification.
The proposed modification consists of a substitution in the trade
practice provisions set forth in the form of an Appendix to the Code.
The proposed modification does not in any way affect the labor
provisions of the Graphic Arts Code.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said modi-
fication 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 modification to said Code and the Code as modified are
well designed to promote the policies and purposes of Title I of
the National Industrial Recovery Act including the removal of
obstructions 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 of labor and management under
adequate governmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating
unfair competitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utili-
zation of the present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding
undue restriction of production (except as may be temporarily
required), by increasing the consumption of industrial and agricul-
tural products through increasing purchasing power, by reducing
and relieving unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and
by otherwise rehabilitating industry.
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provision of said Title of said Act, including without limitation
sub-section (a) of Section 3, sub-section (a) of Section 7 and sub-
section (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The National Graphic Arts Co-ordinating Committee was
and is the highest governing body of the Graphic Arts Code and
truly representative of the aforesaid industry, and has applied for
(d) The modification and the Code as modified are not designed
to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The modification and the Code as modified are not designed
to and will not eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not
operate to discrim inmate 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
I believe the modification to be fair to the consumer and to the
industry, and for these reasons, therefore, I approve this modi-
