REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT


The PRESIDENT,
The White House.
SIR: This is a report on the Supplemental Code of Fair Com-
petition for the Portable Electric Lamp and Shade Manufacturing
Industry, a Subdivision of the Electrical Manufacturing Industry,
Public Hearing having been conducted thereon in Washington,
D.C., June 12, 1934, in accordance with the provisions of Title I of
the National Industrial Recovery Act. Every person who filed a
rcequ'ct. for an appearance at the Public Hearing was heard in ac-
cordance with regulations of the National Rei'very Administra-
tion. The Code was presented by duly qualified and authorized
representatives of the Industry, claiming to represent seventy-five
(75%) percent of the aggregate production of the Industry.
GENERAL STATEMENT

The Portable Electric Lamp and Shade Manufacturing Industry,
as represented by the National Electrical Manufacturers Associa-
tion, being truly rppr-ientative of this Subdivision of the Electrical
Manifactiuring Industry, has submitted a Supplemental Code of
Fair Competition to the Basic Code for the Electrical Manufac-
turing Industry, approved by you August 4, 1933. The Portable
Electric Lamp and Shade Subdivision of the Electrical Manu-
facturing Industry is defined to mean the manufacture for sale of
Portable Electric Lamps and/or Shades.
A portable electric lamp is defined as any device, including an
extension cord and plug, a so.ket or sockets for receiving an elec-
tric incandescent bulb or bulbs, and means for supporting said
socket or sockets; such device being complete in itself and capable
of standing on horizontal surfaces without auxiliary attaching
means which would render it permanent locaitio n.
A lamp shade is defined as any complete device of any material
which can be attached to an electric portable lamp, or to an electric
incandescent bulb as a part of a portable electric lamp, or to an
electric fixture and which, when so attached will either partially or
completely surround the electric incandescent bulb or bulbs; the
purpose of such device being primarily for shielding the light source
from the normal field of vision and for decoration. (Such a device,
when intended primarily to redirect light into a definite zone, should
be defined as a reflector ".)
INDUSTRY

According to statistics furnished by members of the Portable Elec-
tric Lamp and Shade Subdivision of the Electrical Manufacturing








Industry, there are approximately 500 concerns with an aggregate
invested capital of $11,300,000 and a reported aggregate production
of $21,020,000. The Industry at present employs approximately
30,000 workers.
PROVISIONS OF THE CODE

The Basic Code for the Electrical Manufacturing Industry estab-
lishes a supervisory agency which is fairly and adequately repre-
sentative of all the different elements in the Industry.
Since this Code is supplemental to the Code of Fair Competition
for the Electrical Manufacturing Industry, it adopts all the provi-
sions of the Basic Code, including labor provisions.
FINDINGS

The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said Supple-
mental Code having found as herein set forth and on the basis of all
the proceedings in this matter:
I find that:
(a) Said Supplemental Code is well designed to promote the poli-
cies and pu rposes of Title I of the National Industrial Recovery Act,
including removal of obstructions to the free flow of interstate and
foreign commerce which tend to diminish the amount thereof and
will provide for the general welfare by promoting the organization
of industry for the purpose of cooperative action among the trade
groups by inducing and maintaining united action of labor and
management under adequate governmental sanctions and supervision,
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 tem-
porarily required), by increasing the consumption of industrial and
agricultural products throuLgh increasing purchasing power, by reduc-
ing and relieving unemployment, by improving standards of labor,
and by otherwise rehabilitating industry.
(b) Said Subdivision normally employs not more than 50,000
employees; and is not classified by me as a major industry.
(c) The Supplemental Code as approved complies in all respects
with the pertinent provisions of said Title of said Act, including
without limitation Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of
Section 7 and Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof; and that the
applicant association is an industrial association truly representative
of the aforesaid Subdivision: and that said association imposes no
inequitable restrictions on admission to membership therein.
(d) The Supplemental Code is not designed to and will not permit
monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The Supplemental Code is not designed to and will not elimi-
nate or oppress small enterprises and will not operate to discrimi-
nate 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
Supplemental Code.







(g) In accordance with the provisions of Article XIV of the Code
of Fair Competition for the Electrical Manufacturing Industry, this
Subdivision is entitled to and permitted a Supplemental Code
thereto.
For these reasons, therefore, I have approved this Supplemental
Code.
Respectfully,
HUGH S. JOHNSON,
Administrator.
JuNE 27, 1934.
