REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The fWhite House.
Sir: This is a report on the amendment to the Code of Fair Com-
petition for the Machinery and Allied Products Industry and the
hearing conducted thereon in Washington, April 27, 1934. The
amendment, which is attached, was presented by the temporary Basic
The Code for the Machinery and Allied Products Industry pro-
vides in Article VII, Section (a) that; upon request of any trade
association, organization, or group of employers representative of
machinery or allied products n6t specifically defined in Article II
thereof, the Basic Code Authority may make application to the
Administrator for amendment of the Code of Fair Competition for
Machinery and Allied Products Industry with respect to the defi-
nition of the Industry by addition thereto of a specific definition
covering such products and, upon approval by the Administrator of
said amendment, the employers concerned therewith shall become
members of the Industry, and shall be organized by Basic Code
Authority into a Subdivision, with a Code Authority to be created
as provided in Article VI of the Code of Fair Competition for the
Machinery and Allied Products Industry. Concurrently with appli-
cation for amendment to definition, such group of employers con-
cerned therewith shall make application to the Administrator for
a Supplemental Code as provided in Article I of the Code of Fair
Competition for the Machinery and Allied Products Industry (ap-
plicable solely to such Subdivision and dealing with subjects not
provided for by the Code of Fair Competition for the Machinery
and Allied Products Industry). Upon approval by the Adminis-
trator such Supplemental Code shall be binding on such Subdivision
and upon each employer therein.
This amendment provides that Article II of the Code of Fair
Competition for the Machinery and Allied Products Industry be
amended to include the definitions of the following Subdivisions:
1. Chemical Engineering Equipment Subdivision
2. Electric Overhead Crane Subdivision
3. Locomotive Appliance Subdivision
Supplemental Codes have been filed for each of these Subdivi-
sions and public hearings have been conducted thereon. The eco-
nomic effect of including these Subdivisions in this Code will be
shown when the respective Supplemental Codes are submitted for
The Deputy Administrator 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 ob-
structions 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 trade -rroups, by inducing and main-
taining united action of labor an? 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 industries, by avoiding undue
restriction 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 relieving
unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limita-
tion Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7 and
Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Code empowers the Code Authority to present the afore-
said amendment on behalf of the Industry as a whole.
(d) The amendment and the Code as amended are not designed
to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) 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.
(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 amendment on
condition that the continued participation of the Electric Overhead
Crane Institute in the activities of the Code as amended be condi-
tioned upon its amending its Constitution and By-Laws to the satis-
faction of the Administrator within thirty (30) days from the
effective date of this amendment.
