moting the performance by employers of the provisions of this Code
and for otherwise effectuating the policy of the Act.
The Code Authority shall issue and enforce such rules and regula-
tions, impose upon employers such restrictions, with the approval
of the Administrator, and designate such agents and delegate such
authority to them as may be necessary or convenient to effectuate the
purposes of this Code and the Act. The Code Authority may make
such rules as to meetings, notices, waivers of notices, and other
procedural matters as it may from time to time determine. The Code
Authority may, to such extent as it may determine, act by. and
through such divisions of the Industry as it may designate (based







upon groupings of members having a common interest and common
problems) and representative committees of such divisions.
SEC. 2. To further effectuate the policies of Title I of the National
Industrial Recovery Act, the Code Authority is constituted the
Industry's agent to cooperate with the Administrator with respect
to future planning and fair practice. The Code Authority may
from time to time present to-the Administrator recommendations
based on conditions in the Industry as they may develop from time to
time which will tend to effectuate the operation of the provisions of

form and at such intervals as said Code Authority may prescribe,
such reports of information and statistics regarding the working
hours of employees and the wages of employees as said Code Au-
thority shall require.
Members of any division designated by said Code Authority shall
furnish to the committee chosen from and representing their divi-
sion, as and when requested by such committee, reports with respect

unfair competition, or eliminate, oppress, or discriminate against
small enterprises.








ARTICLE X-TRADE PRACTICE

SECTION 1. No builder of textile machinery shall sell or exchange
in the United States market, except in fulfilment of contracts
formed before the effective date, any product (not secondhand) of
its manufacture at a price, or upon terms or conditions, that will
result in the customer paying therefore less than the seller's cost, as
determined in accordance with standard accounting practices. In
the event that complaint shall be made by a member of the aforesaid
Code Authority, alleging violation of this paragraph by a member of
the same division of the Industry, said Code Authority shall appoint
a special committee to investigate and report.
SEC. 2. No person shall sell a machine, or parts therefore, copied or
duplicated by such person from a machine, or parts therefore, made
by an established builder of textile machinery, at a selling price
under the reasonable cost.

title to or a lien on such machinery is retained by the seller until
the purchase price therefore shall have been paid in full.
SEc. 8. With the unanimous approval of his divisional committee,
any employer may sell on deferred payments on terms other than
those provided in Section 7 above.
SEc. 9. Arbitration: The use of arbitration in the settlement of
commercial disputes between employers or between buyers and sellers
under the arbitration rules of the American Arbitration Association
is recognized as an economical and effective method of adjusting
business controversies.

ARTICLE XI-AMENDMENT, CANCELLATION, AND TERMINATION

SECTION 1. This Code and all the provisions thereof are expressly
made subject to the right of the President, in accordance with the








provision of Clause 10 (b) of the National Industrial Recovery Act,
from time to time to cancel or modify any order, approval, license,

Code or additional codes will be submitted for the approval of the
President to prevent unfair competition in price and other unfair
and destructive competitive practices and to effectuate the other pur-
poses and policies of Title I of the National Industrial Recovery
Act consistent with the provisions hereof.
SEC. 3. This Code shall continue in effect for a period of ninety
(90) days after the effective date and thereafter until terminated as
hereinafter provided. Subject to statutory provisions then in effect,
this Code may be terminated at any time after said ninety-day period.

by the Administrator, beginning at 10 A.M.. Friday. August 25, 1933, in the
Caucus Room of the Senate Office Building, Washington, D.C., and continuing
until completed. An opportunity to be heard (either in person or by duly
appointed representative either by appearance or by sending a written or
telegraphic statement) will be given to persons or groups who can show a
substantial interest as workers, employers, consumers, or otherwise, in the effect
of any provision of the proposed Code.
Those wishing to be heard must comply with the following simple require-
ments:
(1) A written or telegraphic request for an opportunity to be heard must be
filed before noon on Thursday. August 24, 1933, with the Administrator, Room
4422, Department of Commerce, Washington, D.C.

a modification of a specific provision, in language proposed by the witness; or
(3) a provision to be added to the Code in language proposed by the witness.
(4) At the Public Hearings all persons are regarded as witnesses and shall
present orally facts only and not argument. Written briefs or arguments may
be fi'ed, but oral presentations will be confined to factual statements only.
(5) In the discretion of the Deputy Administrator in charge of the Hearing,
persons who have not complied with the requirements of paragraph (1) above
may be permitted at any time prior to the close of the Hearing to file written
statements containing proposals for eliminations from, modifications of, or
additions to the code supported by pertinent information or argument. Such
written statements must be condensed as much as possible.
Public Hearings are solely for the purpose of obtaining in the most direct
manner the facts useful to the Administrator, and no arguments twill be heard
or considered at this time. Representation of interested parties by attorneys
