CODE OF FAIR COMPETITION FOR THE DRY KILN
This code is set up for the purpose of increasing employment,
establishing fair and adequate wages, effecting necessary reduction

industries which is necessary to the restoration and maintenance of
the highest practical degree of public welfare.

wages paid within the Dry Kiln Industiry to such levels as are neces-

standard of living; to restore the income of enterprises within the

wages and avoid the further depletion and destruction of capital
assets; and from time to time to revise the rate of wages in such
manner as will currently reflect the equitable adjustment to varia-
tions in the cost. of living.
Participation in this code and any subsequent revision or addi-
tion to the code shall be extended to any partnership or corporation

MOORE DRY KILN COMPANY, JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA, AND MOORE
DRY KILN COMPANY OF OREGON-TO BE ATTACHED TO PROPOSED
CODE OF FAIR COMPETITION FOR THE DRY KILN INDUSTRY
The two companies, parties to this schedule, join in the attached Code in all
of its articles except Articles 4 and 5, and except Article 3, paragraph (c).
In place of Article 3, paragraph (c), these companies propose to abide by
and observe the hours of labor, hours of plant operation, and minimum wages
as specifieil in the President's reemployment Agreement. These companies exe-
cuted the President's Reemployment Agreement and adjusted their hours and
compensation in conformity therewith, resulting in shorter hours, increased
wages, and increased employment, commencing Aug. 8, 1933.
These companies object to Articles 4 and 5 upon the ground that the Industry
is too small and too widely scattered to warrant such practices as set forth in
Articles 4 and 5. The only bona fide manufacturers, in addition to these com-
panies, are The National Dry Kiln Company, Indianapolis, Indiana; Standard
Dry Kiln Company, Indianapolis; Elmer E. Perkins Company, Chicago; and the
North Coast Dry Kiln Company, Seattle, Washington. The Humidity Control
Company and the Dry Kiln Door Carrier Company, signers of the attached
Code, are not manufacturers of complete dry kiln outfits.
With these reservations, the undersigned have set their hand and seals to
the said Code for the Dry Kiln Industry.
