H. O. KING,
May 10, 1934.
REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
Sin: This is a report on a Modification of the Supplementary
Code of Fair Competition for the Wholesale Wallpaper Trade, said
Code being approved Code No. 201B and approved by me on March
16, 1934. This Supplementary Code has been modified by changing
the word of to off in Article IV, Section 2, Paragraph 2, the
third line, so that Article IV, Section 2, reads as follows:
The selling of current year's goods as jobs, seconds, damaged
goods or close-outs, by any wholesaler or distributor to any buyer,
before the thirty-first day of December in any year.
No jobs, seconds, damaged goods or close-outs shall be sold by
any wholesaler or distributor to any buyer at a price below 331/3%
off the price quoted on new goods to buyers of the same type. There
shall be no restriction as to selling price of jobs after they have
been out of the current year's line for more than one year."
This Modification was made necessary by the fact that the word
"of was by mistake printed for the word off."
This Supplementary Code has also been modified by ending Ar-
ticle IV, with Section 6, and beginning a new Article V, headed as
follows: "Article V-Permissive Trade Practices", supplementing
Article VIII of the General Code, as expressingly permitted in
Article VIII of the Code of Fair Competition for the Wholesale
or Distributing Trade. The following Rules and Regulations con-
stitute methods of fair competition which shall apply to and govern
the Members of the Wholesale Wallpaper Trade.
Sections 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11 of Article IV, became, after the Amend-
ment, Sections 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 of Article V. What was formerly
Article V-Effective Date-has by this Modification become Ar-
This Supplementary Code has been modified by striking therefrom
Article IV, Section 8, Subsection (b), which read as follows:
"All sample books, stands, and/or other forms of collective sample
showings shall have the retailer's or decorator's net cost for room
lot purchases marked or printed by a uniform symbol, as adopted
by the Divisional Code Authority. In no case shall this symbol
appear except on the back of the sample, and not in any way as
a part of either the pattern number or the marked or printed 'fair
value.' (Paragraph (b) of this section not compulsory until after
April 1, 1934.)"
'his Modification was made necessary by the fact that this pro-
vision was included in the above-named Supplementary Code by
mistake, after the trade association presenting the Supplementary
Code and the Code Committee for such association had been notified
that their request would be complied with and this provision deleted.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said modi-
fication of said Supplementary 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 Supplementary Code and the Sup-
plementary Code as modified are well designed to promote the poli-
cies and purposes of Title I of the National Industrial Recovery
Act including the removal of obstructions to the free flow of inter-
state 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 among
the trade groups, by inducing and maintaining united action of
labor and management under adequate governmental sanction and
supervision, by eliminating unfair competitive practices, by pro-
moting 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 con-
sumption of industrial and agricultural products through increasing
purchasing power, by reducing and relieving unemployment, by
improving standards of labor, and by otherwise rehabilitating
(b) The Supplementary Code as modified complies in all respects
with the pertinent 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 National Wallpaper Wholesalers Association was and
is a trade association truly representative of the aforesaid Trade and
that said association imposed and imposes no inequitable restrictions
on admission to membership therein and has applied for and con-
sents to this modification.
(d) The modification and the Supplementary Code as modified
are not designed to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic
(e) The modification and the Supplementary Code as modified
are not designed to and will not eliminate or oppress small enter-
prises 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 the approval
of this modification of the Supplementary Code.
(g) In view of the fact that this modification merely corrects an
error, and in view of the further fact that such modification has
the approval of all the advisory boards, the Research and Planning
Division, and the Legal Division, there was no necessity for a public
hearing, and the modification was approved without such hearing,
(h) This modification corrects an error and therefore was assented
to by the Trade when they assented to the Code prior to approval
of said Code.
For these reasons this modification of the above-named Supple-
mentary Code has been approved.
HUGH S. JOHNSON,
MAY 10, 1934.
