REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
SmI: This is a report on the proposed amendment to the Code of
Fair Competition for the Photo-Engraving Industry as approved by
you on December 23, 1933. The proposed amendment is to be known
as Sub-section (f) of Article VII, Section 7. It was noticed for
Opportunity to be Heard on June 23, 1934. No criticisms of, objec-
tions 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 6, 1934.
The amendment gives the Code Authority under the Photo-
Engraving Code the power to collect assessments, and makes it a
violation of the Code for an establishment to fail to pay such assess-
ments 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 Photo-Engraving Code.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said
amendment 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 gov-
ernmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair competi-
tive 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 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 Photo-Engraving Code Authority was and is the highest
governing body of the Photo-Engraving Code and truly representa-
tive of the aforesaid industry, and has applied 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 21, 1934.
