AMENDMENT TO
CODE OF FAIR COMPETITION
FOR THE

BITUMINOUS COAL INDUSTRY
As Approved on April 22, 1934


ORDER
MODIFICATION OF CODE OF FAIR COMPETITION
FOR THE
BITUMINOUS COAL INDUSTRY
It appearing to me that there has been a full opportunity to be
heard on Amendment No. 1 to the Code of Fair Competition for the
Bituminous Coal Industry as set forth in my Administrative Order
of March 31, 1934, at a duly noticed public hearing and otherwise,
and having fully considered all of the aspects of said Amendment
No. 1 in light of the evidence presented at said public hearing and
otherwise, and it appearing to me after such consideration that justice
requires that the modifications herein effected be made and that said
Amendment No. 1, as so modified should be in all respects affirmed
and as so modified will tend to effectuate the policies of Title I of the
National Industrial Recovery Act;
Pursuant to the authority reserved to me in said Administrative
Order and otherwise vested in me under said Title of said Act by
Executive Orders of the President and otherwise, it is hereby ordered
that said Amendment No. 1 as effected by my Administrative Order
of March 31, 1934, be and it hereby is modified and, as so modified,
approved and affirmed, such modification to be effective immediately
as of April 1, 1934, in words and figures as set forth in the Exhibit
hereto annexed which shall be known as "New Schedule A";
FURTHER ORDERED that, in view of the differentials hereby
accorded District J, pending further order there shall be no sales by
operators of said District into the normal consuming rmirkets of
another District which is subject to higher rates of pay, at any prices
for coal of comparable grade and quality, less than the price for such
coal in said market charged by such other District, and there shall be
no destructive invasion of such other consuming markets and, in the
absence of satisfactory agreements governing this matter, the determi-
nation of the Administrator on complaint of any such destructive
invasion shall be conclusive;
54717--482-14-0-34- (








FURTHER ORDERED that the requirement of said Amendment
No. 1 that the minimum rates for tonnage and other piecework in
certain Districts should be further increased shall be modified so as to
read as follows:
"In addition to the increases above provided the minimuin rates
for tonnage and other piecework in Districts B, G, H, J, and J-1,
shall be further increased, if necessary, by an amount sufficient to
maintain the customary relationship in the industry between pay for
such tonnage and piecework and the basic minimum rates for day
labor as prescribed for such districts in New Schedule A";
FURTHER ORDERED that said requirement, as to increases in
District B, shall be satisfied pending further order, by an increase per
2,000 pound ton for said District of two and one-half (2)2) cents in
loading rates and one-half (%i) cent in cutting rates;
FURTHER ORDERED that an error in the first paragraph of
said Amendment No. 1 be corrected by the insertion of "clerical",
before the word "technical" in the first line thereof;
FURTHER ORDERED that full study shall be made by the
National Recovery Administration as to adjustments in the price
structure within the Bituminous Coal Industry, equitably required
in consideration of the rates of pay in effect in the several Districts
of said Industry, and to that end there shall be created a Bituminous
Coal Research Unit within the Research & Planning Division of said
Administration to conduct such study, to advise the Administrator
on approval of proposed prices, and to make recommendations con-
cerning such readjustment of the price structure; and
Said Amendment No. 1, as modified in accordance herewith, be
and the same hereby is in all respects, affirmed and approved, subject,
however, to such further modification in any schedule therein as
further investigation and fact finding by the Division of Research &
Planning may discover to be necessary. Said Division will vigorously
continue its present research into wages, prices and hours of labor in
each of the affected Divisions.

Administrator for Indutstrial Recovery.
