REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
Sin: This is a report on the modification to the Code of Fair
Competition for the End Grain Strip Wood Block Industry, which
has been submitted in accordance with Executive Order No. 6678.
This modification enables the Code Authority to incur such reason-
able obligations as are necessary to support the administration of the
code and to maintain the standards of fair competition established
by this code. It also enables the Code Authority to submit an item-
ized budget, and an equitable basis upon which the funds necessary
to support such budget shall be contributed by the members of the
industry. Such contributions are made mandatory by this
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said modi-
fication of 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 of 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 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 industries, by avoiding undue restriction of production
(except as may be temporarily required), by increasing the consump-
tion of industrial and agricultural products through increasing pur-
chasing power, by inducing and relieving unemployment, by improv-
ing standards of labor, and by otherwise rehabilitating industry.
(b) The code as modified complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limitation
subsection (a) of Section 3, subsection (a) of Section 7 and subsection
(b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Code empowers the Code Authority to present the afore-
said amendment on behalf of the Industry as a whole.
(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 discriminate 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
For these reasons this modification has been approved.
HUGH S. JOHNSON,
AuousT 16, 1934.

such notice and opportunity to be heard as he may deem necessary

(c) After such budget and basis of contribution has been approved
by the Administrator, to determine and obtain equitable contribution
as above set forth by all members of the industry, and to that end,
if necessary, to institute legal proceedings therefore in its own name.
2. Each member of the industry shall pay his or its equitable con-
