REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
SIR: This is a report on the Supplemental Code of Fair Competi-
tion for the Bakery Equipment Manufacturing Subdivision of the
Machinery and Allied Products Industry, public hearing having been
conducted thereon in Washington, D.C., December 21, 1933, in ac-
cordance with the provisions of Title I of the National Industrial
Recovery Act. Every person who filed a request for an appearance
was freely heard in public and all statutory and regulatory require-
ments were complied with.
The Bakery Equipment Manufacturers Association, being truly
representative of this subdivision of the Machinery and Allied Prod-
ucts Industry, has elected to avail itself of the option of submitting
a Supplemental Code of Fair Competition, as provided in Para-
graph (2). Article I of the Basic Code for the Machinery and Allied
Products Industry approved by you on the seventeenth day of
This Subdivision represents a part of the capital goods industry,
manufacturing for sale bakery machinery, ovens, and general equip-
ment and appliances, accessories thereto and parts thereof, and in-
cludes all those engaged in such manufacture for sale, excepting,
however, those who are engaged in the manufacture of equipment,
appliances and accessories and parts therefore coming within the defi-
nition of another industry as defined in an approved code for such
other industry and who are not otherwise employers within the
scope of the definition of this Subdivision.
This Subdivision in 1929 employed approximately 3,700 persons,
including office workers. Estimated employment of factory workers
declined from 2,927 in 1929 to 1,908 in the second quarter of 1933,
or 34.8 per cent and increased thereafter to approximately 2,406
worker; in the last quarter of 1933, or 26.1 per cent. Employment
for the last quarter of 1933 was 17.8 per cent below the 1929 level.
Annual sales of the Subdivision, based on estimates furnished by
the Bakery Equipment Manufacturers' Association, declined from
$24,700,000 in 1929 to $11,500,000 in 1932, or 53.4 per cent, and in-
creased thereafter to $14,600,000 or 27.0 per cent. Sales for the year
1933 were 40.9 per cent below the 1929 level.
Approximately 49 percent of the workers were working more than
40 hours per week during June 1933. The average work-week
declined from 50.8 hours in June 1929 to 36.5 in November 1933, or
28 per cent.
Estimated average man-hours per week declined from 148,690 in
1929 to 75,175 in the second quarter of 1933, or 49.4 per cent and
increased thereafter to 87,820 in the last quarter of 1933, or 16.8 per
cent. Man-hour requirements for the Inst quarter of 1933 were 40.9
per cent below the 1929 level. Until there is a further increase in
man-hour requirements, the adoption of the 40-hour week will cause
no increase in employment in this Subdivision.
Approximately 18.8 per cent of the factory workers in June, 1933
were receiving less than 40 cents per hour; 14.8 per cent were re-
ceiving less than 38 cents per hour; 11.0 per cent were receiving less
than 36 cents per hour; and 6.0 per cent were. receiving less than
32 cents per hour. Based on the distribution of hourly rates in June,
1933. the adoption of the minimum wage rates provided by the code
is expected to be accompanied by an increase in total payrolls which
probably will not. exceed 2.5 per cent. assuming only upward adjust-
ment in the brackets below the 40-cent minimum and no change in
RESUIM OF THE SUPPLEMENTAL CODE
Article I states the purpose of the Supplemental Code.
Article II accurately defines specific terms employed in this Sup-
Article III. The labor provisions of the Basic Code for the Ma-
chinery and Allied Products Industry as approved March 17, 1934,
are incorporated by reference as the labor provisions of this Supple-
Article IV adopts the relevant portions of Article II, "Defini-
tions and Article VI, "Administration "; and Articles VIII, Mod-
ifications and Termination of the Basic Code for the Machinery and
Allied Products Industry, as approved March 17, 1934.
Article V establishes a Code Authority consisting of five members,
one of whom shall be elected from the employers who are nonmem-
bers of the Applicant. The Administrator in his discretion may
appoint one additional member, without vote and without expense to
Article VI contains the mandatory provisions contained in Section
10 (b) of the Act and also provides for the submission of proposed
amendments to the Supplemental Code.
Article VII provides for the withdrawal of this Subdivision from
jurisdiction of the Basic Code and for the continued functioning
of this Subdivision as an individual industry under its own code.
Article VIII stipulates that there shall be no inequitable restric-
tions and provides against monopolies.
Article IX gives the effective date of this Supplemental Code.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said Sup-
plemental 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
policies and purposes 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 organiza-
tion 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 super-
vision, by eliminating unfair competitive practices, by promoting the
fullest possible utilization of the present productive capacity of in-
dustries, by avoiding undue restriction of production (except as may
be temporarily required), by increasing the consumption of indus-
trial and agricultural products through increasing purchasing power
by reducing 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 of the industry; and that said associa-
tion imposes no inequitable restrictions on admission to membership
(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 elim-
inate or oppress small enterprises and will not operate to discrim-
inate 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
For these reasons, therefore, I have approved this Supplemental
