REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT


The PRESIDENT,
The White House.
SIR: This is a report on the Supplementary Code of Fair Compe-
tition for the Washing Machine Parts Manufacturing Industry, a
division of the Fabricated Metal Products Manufacturing and Metal
Finishing and Metal Coating Industry, the hearing having be-n con-
ducted thereon in Washington, D.C., December 19, 1933, in accord-
ance with the provisions of Title I of the National Ilnidlstrial
Recovery Act.
GENERAL STATEMENT

The Washing Machine Parts Manufacturing Industry, being truly
representative of this division of the Fabricated Metal Products
Manufacturing and Metal Finishing and Metal Coating Industry,
has elected to avail itself of the option of submitting a Supple-
mentary Code of Fair Competition, as provided for in Section 1 of
Article VI of the Basic Code, for the Fabricated Metal Products
Manufacturing and Metal Finishing and Metal Coating Indu(stry
approved by you on the second day of November, 1933.

RESUME OF THE CODE

Article I states the purpose of the Supplementary Code.
Article II accurately defines specific terms employed in the Sup-
plementary Code.
Article III: This Industry is a division of the Fabricated Metal
Products Manufacturing and Metal Finishing and Metal Coating
Industry and the labor provisions of its Basic Code, as approved
November 2, 1933, are the labor provisions of this Supplementary
Code.
Article IV establishes a Supplementary Code Authority consist-
ing of three members to be elected by the Industry, and gives the
Adlministrat1or the authority to appoint one additional member
without vote and provides machinery for obtaining statistics and
the administration of the Supplementary Code.
Article V. sets forth the unfair tradiL practices of this Supple-
mentary Code which has been especially de-igned to offset unfair

mentary Code.







FINDINGS

The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said
Supplementary Code having found as herein set forth and on the
basis of all the proceedings in this matter:
I find that:
(a) Said Supplementary Code is well designed to 1promo(te the
policies and purposes of Title I of the National Industrial IR-covery
Act, including removal of obstructions to the free flow of interstate.
and foreign commnnerce which tend to dinmini.sh the amount thereof
and will provide for the general welfare by promoting the organiza-
tion of industry for the purposes of cooperative action among the
trade groups, by inducing and maintaining united action of labor
and management under adequate governmental sanctions and su-
pervision. by eliminating unfair competitive practices, by promoting
the fullest possible utilization of the present productive capacity of
industries, by avoiding undue restriction of production (except. as
may be temporarily required), by increasing the consumption of
industrial and agricultural products through increasing purllaling
power, by reducing and relieving unemployment, by improving
standards of labor, and by otherwise rehabilitating industry.
(b) Said Industry normally employs not more than 50,000 em-
ployees; and is not classified by me as a major industry.
(c) The Supplementary Code as approved complies in all re-
spects with the pertinent. provisions of said Title of said Act, includ-
ing without limitation Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a)
of Section 7, and Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof; and that
the applicant group is an industrial group truly representative of the
aforesaid Industry; and that said association imposes no inequitable
restrictions on admission to membership therein.
(d) The Supplementary Code is not designed to and will not per-
mit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The Supplementary Code is not designed to and will not
eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not. operate to
discriminate against them.
(f) Those engaged in other steps of the economic process have
not been deprived of the right, to be heard prior to approval of said
Supplementary Code.
For these reasons, therefore, I have approved this Supplementary
Code.
Respectfully,
HUGH S. JOHNSON,
Administrator.

ARTICLE V-RULES OF FAIR COMPETITION IN MANUFACTURING AND
MARKETING
(Superseding all Trade Practices set forth in Article V of the
Basic Code)
Any member of the Industry who shall directly or indirectly
through any officer, employee, agent, or representative, fail to com-
ply with Tny of the following rules of Fair Competition in Manu-







facturing and Marketing shall be deemed to have violated this Sup-
plementary Code.
A. No products of the Industry, in whole or in part, shall be sold
or exchanged at prices less than the seller's cost of such products;
such cost to be based on a formula which shall be at least as detailed
and complete as the formula to be prepared by the Supplementary
Code Authority and approved by the Administrator; provided, how-
ever, that upon five days' notice to the agent of the Supplementary
Code Authority any member of the Industry may sell below his cost
in order that he may meet competitive prices on articles of similar
style, grade, and/or specification filed in accordance with the provi-
sions of this section.
When the Supplementary Code Authority determines that an
emergency exists in this Industry and that the cause thereof is de-
structive price-cutting such as to render ineffective or seriously en-
danger the maintenance of the provisions of this Supplementary
Code, the Supplementary Code Authority may cautse to be deter-
mined the lowest reasonable cost of the products of this Industry,
such determination to be subject to such notice and hearing as the
Administrator may require. The Administrator may approve, dis-
approve, or modify the determination. Thereafter, during the pe-
riod of the emergency, it shall be an unfair trade practice for any
member of the Industry to sell or offer to sell any products of the
Industry for which the lowest reasonable cost has been determined
at such prices or upon such terms or conditions of sale that the buyer
will pay less therefore than the lowest reasonable cost of such prod-
ucts.
When it appears that conditions have changed, the Supplementary
Code Authority, upon its own initiative or upon the request of any
interested party, shall cause the determination to be reviewed.
All members of the Industry shall, within ten (10) days after the
effective date of this Supplementary Code, publish for the benefit
of all interested parties and file with the agent of the Supplementary
Code Authority price lists setting forth the prices, terms, and other
conditions at which they will sell the products of the Industry.
Said price lists and all revisions thereof shall be made available to
all interested parties.
Each manufacturer's existing price list shall remain in effect for
a period of five (5) days following the filing of a revised price list
and upon the filing of such revised list by any member of the In-
dustry, the agent of the Supplementary Code Authority shall imme-
diately furnish copies of such revised list to all other members of
the Industry. Any other member or members of the Industry
desiring to file revised lists to become effective on the same date may
do so provided that the prices set out in such revised lists are not
lower than those in the first. revised list filed and that they are filed
prior to said effective date.
When filing price lists, as set forth in this Section A, a sufficient
number of lists shall be furnished to the agent of the Supplementary
Code Authority to enable it to supply a copy to each member of the
Industry, and in addition thereto six (6) copies for the use of the
agent of the Supplementary Code Authority.1
Se paragraph 2 of order approving this Code.







B. Withholding from, or inserting in, any invoice a false record,
wholly or in part, of the transaction represented on the face thereof,
and the payment or allowance of secret rebates, secret refunds, secret
credits, unearned discounts (whether in the form of money or other-
wise) or the extension to certain purchasers of prices, services, or
privileges not extended to all purchasers under like conditions, are
unfair trade practices.
C. To defame or disparage a competitor, directly or indirectly, by
words or acts which untruthfully impugn his business integrity, his
ability to keep his contract>, his credit standing, or the quality of
his products, is an unfair trade practice.
D. To imitate or simulate the trade mark, trade name, package,
wrapper, or label of a competitor's product to such a degree as to
deceive or have a tendency to deceive customer:-, is an unfair trade
pr;ictice.
E. To give, permit to be given, or directly offer to give, anything
of value for the purpose of influencing or rewarding the action of
any employee, agent or representative of another in relation to the
business of the employer of such employee, the principal of such
agent or the repre-enlted party, without the knowledge of such em-
ployer, principal or party is an unfair trade practice. Provided,
however, that nothing in this Section contained shall be so con-
strued as to prohibit free and general distribution of articles com-
monly used for advertising, except so far as such articles are actually
used for commercial bribery as hereinabove defined.
F. The false marking or branding of any product of the Industry
which has the tendency to mislead or deceive customers or prospec-
tive customers, whether as to the grade, quality, quantity, substance,
character, nature, origin, size, finish, or preparation of any product
of the Industry or otherwise, is an unfair trade practice.
G. The making or causing or knowingly permitting to be made
or published any false, materially inaccurate or deceptive statement,
by way of advertisement or otherwise, whether concerning the
grade, quality, quantity, substance, character, nature, origin, size,
finish, or preparation of any product of the Industry or the credit
terms, values, policies, or services of any member of the Industry,
or otherwise, having the tendency or capacity to mislead or deceive
customers or prospective customers, is an unfair trade practice.
H. All members of the Industry, when selling on a time-con-
tract basis, shall use a standard form of sales contract which shall
include maximum and minimum quantities, definite terms of time
coverage, adequate description of the product, and all other items
necessary to form a complete, unambiguous agreement between the
seller and buyer; said standard form of sales contract to be subject
to the approval of the Administrator..
I. All members of the Industry shall confirm to prospective buy-
ers in writing all verbal contractual quotations within five (5) days
so that definite evidence of such quotations may be on record, and
such confirmations must embody all terms and consideration of the
proposal. No additional verbal understanding shall be entered into.







J. Inducing, or attempting to induce, the breach of any contract
between a competitor and his customer, or the repudiation of con-
tracts, or the acceptance of repudiations of contracts, are unfair
trade practices.
K. Shipping goods on consignment is an unfair trade practice.
The term consignment as used in this section, means the supply-
ing of goods to a consignee for sale or use by the consignee under
any contract, agreement, or understanding whereby title to the
goods remains in the consignor until such time as they are with-
drawn from the consigned stock and/or sold or used by the con-
signee, and under which no liability for the purchase price of said
goods arises on the part of the consignee until such withdrawal
and/or sale or use by him.
L. The standard terms of payment of the Industry shall not be
more favorable to the purchaser than the payment, of the net
amount of the invoice within thirty (30) days from date of invoice
and with the date of invoice not later than the date of shipment,
provided, however, that in cases where it would be to the mutual
advantage of buyer and seller to accumulate invoices, such invoices
rendered during any month may all be paid on the fifteenth (15th)
dhy of the following month. Interest at the rate of six (6) per cent
per annum shall be charged on the face amount of all invoices on
and after the due (lat e thereof. There shall be no deferred dating.
M. The giving of any guarantee against decline in price, except
as against the seller's own decline up to date of shipment, is an
unfair trade practice.
N. On and after the effective date, all tools and dies manie for any
customer, by mehlbers of the Industry shall be charged for at prices
not less than allowable cost, and allowable cost shall be figured in
accordance with the standard cost formula referred to in Section A
of Article V hereof. Such tools and dies- shall be billed and paid for
according to the regular terms, set forth in Section L of Article V
