The White House.
SIR: This is a report on the Amendment of the Code of Fair
Competition for the Dental Laboratory Industry, relating to the
collection of expenses of Code Administration.
This amendment was proposed in accordance with Article VI,
Section 7, Subsection (a) and Article IX, Section 2 of the Code,
approved January 22, 1934.
Notice of Opportunity to be Heard was given from August 7,
1934, to August 21, 1934. No objection has been filed against the
proposed amendment of the Code.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to us on said amend-
ment of said Code having found as herein set forth and on the
basis of all the proceedings in this matter: we find that:
(a) The amendment of said Code and the Code as modified are well
constituted 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 purposes
of co-operating action among the Trade Groups, by inducing and
maintaining united 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 in-
creasing the consumption of industrial and agricultural products
through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving un-
employment, and improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the per-
tinent 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 Code empowers the Code Authority to present the afore-
said amendment on behalf of the Industry as a whole.
(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 modified are not designed to
and will not eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not op-
erate 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
For this reason, this amendment has been approved by us.
For the National Industrial Recovery Board:
G. A. LYNCH,
