REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
SIR: An application has been duly made pursuant to and in full
compliance with the provisions of the Nation:il Indlustri:l Recovery
Act for a modification of the Code of Fair Competition for the
Print Roller and Print Block Manufacturing Industry, submitted by
the Code Authority for the said Industry.
The existing provisions of Article VI, Section 7 of the Code for
said Indu-triy, are entirely inadequate in view of Executive Order
6678 and Administrative Order X-36, and it is therefore evident that
the proposed modification of Article VI of said Code, the provisions
of which follow closely the text of the above mentioned Orders, will
overcome the existing inadequate provisions.
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 (Id-ignrd to prmnite 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 prinitinl' the organization of industry for the purpose
of cooperative action among trade groups, by inducing and main-
taining united action of labor and ni:nag.eileinnt under adequate gov-
ernmental sanction and supervision, by el inriiaiting unfair competi-
tive pra;itices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the
present productive capacity of the industries, by avoiding undue
re--(lictions of production exceptt. as mliy be temporarily required),
by increasing the conii-iuption of industrial and angriiiltuiral prod-
ucts through increasiJng piirchlsiing power, by reducing and reliev-
ing unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and by other-
wise r.hoibilitating industry.
(b) The Code as modified complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limitation
Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7, and Sub-
section (b) of Section 10 tllhrceof.
(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
to and will not eliminate or opproes small enterprises and will not
operate to discriminate against them.
(e) Tho;e erigagd in other steps of the ,eimmic process have n-t
been deprived of the right to be heard prior to app:;,'v:a of said
For these reasons, therefore, I have approved this modification,
such approval and such modification to tI". effect in ti'i (10) d;,, s
unless good c;.tnusc to the contrary is shown to me before tlat time ;;d
I issue a subsequent order to that effect.
