REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The Wh';te House.
SIR: An application has been duly made pursuant to and in full
compliance with the provisions of the National Industrial Recovery
Act, for an amendment to the Code. of Fair Competition for the
Electric Storage and Wet Primary Battery Industry, submitted by
the Code Authority for the said Industry.
The existing provision of Article IX of the Code for said Industry
is entirely inadequate in view of Executive Order 6678, dated April
14, 1934, and Administrative Order X-36, dated May 26, 1934, and
it is therefore evident that the proposed amendment to Article VI
of said Code, the provisions of which follow closely the text of the
above nlentioned Orders, will overcome the existing inadequate
The Deputy Administratuir in his final report to me on said amend-
ment to said Code having found as herein set forth and on the basis
of all the proceedings in this matter:
I find that:
(a) The amendment, to said Code and the Code as amended are
well designed to promote the policies and purposes of Title I of
the National Industrial Recovery Act including the removal of
obstructions to the free flow of interstate and foreign commerce
which tend to dimini-h the amount thereof, and will provide for the
general welfare by promoting the organization of industry for the
purpose of cooleratlve action among 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 the industries, by avoiding undue
restrictions of production (except as may be temporarily required),
by increasing the consumption of industrial and agricultural prod-
ucts through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and reliev-
ing un0employmennt., by improving standards of labor, and by other-
wise rehabilitating industry.
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provi- ions of said Title of said Act, including without limitation
Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7, and Subsec-
tion (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The amendment and the Code as amended are not designed
to and will not pennrit, monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(d) The amendment and the Code as amended are not designed
to and will not eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not
operate to discriminate against them.
(e) 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 these reasons, therefore, I have approved this amendment.
HUGH S. JOHNSON,
A dn inistrator.
