REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
TRe White House.
SiR: This is a report on the proposed amendment to the Code of
Fair Competition for the Electrotyping and Stereotyping Industry
as approved by you on December 23, 1933. The proposed amend-
ment is to be known as Subsection (f) of Article VII, Section 7. It
was noticed for Opportunity to be Heard on June 26, 1934. No
criticisms of, objections to or suggestions concerning this amendment
were submitted to the Administration within the time limit allowed
by the Notice of Opportunity to be Heard, which expired on July 11,
The amendment gives the Code Authority under the Electrotyping
and Stereotyping Code the power to collect assessments, and makes
it a violation of the Code for an establishment to fail to pay such
assessments when the budget and basis of contribution of a Code
Authority has been approved by the Administrator.
The proposed amendment does not in any way affect the labor
provisions of the Electrotyping and Stereotyping Code.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said amend-
ment 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 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 com-
petitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the
present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue restric-
tion of production (except as may be temporarily required), by
increasing the consumption of industrial and agricultural products
through increasing purchasing power by reducing and relieving
unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the per-
tinent provision of said Title of said Act, including without limi-
tation Sub-section (a) of Section 3, Sub-section (a) of Section 7
and Sub-section (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Electrotyping and Stereotyping Code Authority was and
is the highest governing body of the Electrotyping and Stereotyping
Code and truly representative of the aforesaid industry, and has ap-
plied for this amendment.
(d) The amendment and the Code as amended are not designed
to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The amendment and the Code as amended 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
I believe the amendment to be fair to labor, to the consumer, and
to the industry, and for these reasons, therefore, I approve this
HUGH S. JOHNSON,
AUGUST 23, 1934.
