REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT


The PRESIDENT,
The White Howse.
SI: This is a report on an amendment to the Supplementary Code
of Fair Competition for the Portable Electric Lamp and Shade In-
dustry, a Subdivision of the Electrical Manufacturing Industry,
Public Hearing having been conducted thereon in Washington, D. C.,
October 11, 1934, in accordance with the provisions of Title I of
the National Industrial Recovery Act. Every person who filed
a request, for an appearance at the Public Hearing was heard in
accordance with regulations of the National Recovery Administra-
tion, and all objections filed have been given due consideration. The
amendment, which is attached, was presented with the approval of
the Basic Code Authority.
The Supplementary Code is amended to incorporate additional
fair trade practice provisions, the need of which has been demon-
strated by practical experience under the Supplementary Code.

FINDINGS
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to the National
Industrial Recovery Board on said amendment to said Supplementary
Code having found as herein set forth and on the oi-is. of all the
proceedings in this ii matter:
It is found that:
(a) The amendment to said Suppleilimntary Code and the Supple-
mentary Code as amended are well deigned to promote the policies
and purposes of Title I of the National Indu-trial Recovery Act
including the 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 organiza-
tion of industry for the purpose of cooperative action among trade
groups. by inducing and maintaining united action of labor and
management under adequate governmental sanction and supervision,
by eliminating unfair competitive practice', by promoting the fullest
possible utilization of the precsnt, 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 purchasing power, by
reducing and relieving Inernployiennt, by improving standards of
labor, and by otherwise rehabilitating industry.
(b) The Supplementary Code as amended complies in all respects
with the pertinent provisions of said Title of said Act, including
without limitation Subiection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of
Section 7, and Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof.








(c) The amendment and the Supplemerit;ry Code as amended are
not de-irrjdl to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic
practices.
(d) The amendment and the Supplementary Code as amended
are not designed to and will not eliminate or oppress inall enter-
prises and will not operate to discriminate against them.
(e) Those engaged in other stepl- of the economic process have not
been deprived of the right to be heard prior to approval of said
amendment.
For these reasons, therefore, this mniii-lliiiet has been approved,
the approval to become effective twenty (20) days from date of the
Order, and with the provision that Article XIV shall become effec-
tive ninety (90) days from date of said Order.
For the National Industrial Recove-ry Board:
W. A. HARRIMAN,
Admniistrative Offe r.
