of opportunity to be heard was sent to all members of the Industry
on July 11, 1931, and no objections have been filed with the Adminis-
tration. The ;nilndiment, which is attached, was presented by the
The Code of Fair Competition for the Die Casting Manufactur-
ing Industry provides in Article VI, Section 3, Subsections (b) and
(c) that the Code Authority is authorized:
"(b) To repre-ent, the Industry in conferring with the President
or his agents with respect to the administration of this Code and
with ir-pect to the National Industrial Recovery Act and any regu-
lation issued thereunder.
(c) To present to the Administrator recommendations based on
conditions in the Indu.-try as they develop from time to time which
will tend to effectuate the operation of the provisions of this Code

and that certain provisions be inserted to facilitate the. collection

The Assistant Deputy Administrator in his final report to me
on said aimendment 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 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 conmnerce which tend
to diminish the amount thereof, and will provide for the general
welfare by promoting the organization of indlutry for the purpo-se
of coope-ir:itive action among trade gr-oups, by inducing and main-
taining united action of labor and ma na l2mentt under adequate gov-
ernmental sanction and supervision, by elimrinating unfair competi-
tive practices, by prmnuntingi the fullest pos, ible utilization of the
prn'-ent prodleive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue restric-
tion of production (except as may be t'imiporarily requiri'ced), by in-
creasing the co ,iinimption of inldu .tial and agriculturall products
through increasing purcha..iing power, by reducing and relieving
unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
(b) The Code as amended complies in all re-pects with the perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limita-
tion Sub-ect.ion (a) of Sectioii 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7 and
Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Code empowers the Codci Author'ity to pric-en the afore-
said ainenditlent on behalf of the Induiitriy as a whole.
(d) The am-enictent and the Code as amended are not designed
to and will not permiit monuopolies or monIopolistic pra:'tices.
(e) The nmeniident and the Code as amended are not designed
to and will not eliminate or oppress small eciterpri s 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
For these reasons, therefore, I have approved this amendment.
