REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
Sm: This is a report on a modification of the Code of Fair Com-
petition for the River and Harbor Improvement Industry which was
approved by you on May 18, 1934.
The effect of this amendment, modifying the definition of the
River and Harbor Improvement Industry, will be to avoid conflict
in and overlapping of work, as between the River and Harbor Im-
provement Industry and sub-Chapter II-B of Chapter II of the
Code of Fair Competition for the Construction Industry.
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
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 po-ssible utilization of the
present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue re-
striction of production (except as may be temporarily required),
by increasing the consumption of industrial and agricultural prod-
ucts through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving
unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
(b) The Code as modified complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limita-
tion subsection (a) of Section 3, subsection (a) of Section 7 and
subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The modification and the Code as modified are not designed to
and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(d) The modification and the Code as modified are not designed
and will not eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not
operate to discriminate against them.
(e) 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,
JULY 2, 1934.
