*Retail Cigarette Prices
Order Protects Small Dealers From Practice
of Using Tobacco as "Bait"
Administration Believes Conditions in Distributing Trades
Goes Beyond Healthy Competition
The National Recovery Administrator recently issued orders giving cost
protection to small tobacconists on an emergency basis by approving a mini-
mum mark-up binding all retail distributors. The orders will prevent the use
of cigarettes as "bait", a practice which has nearly eliminated small enterprise
from tobacco distribution.
The effect of the orders will be to permit maintenance of the present normal
retail prices for popular brands of cigarettes-10 cents a package for those
cigarettes priced by manufacturers at $5 or less per thousand and two packages
for 25 cents for other popular grades.
The mark-up basis is 5 percent on cigarettes of $5 or less per thousand,
manufacturers' list price, and 6, percent on other cigarettes, and the orders were
issued in conformity with the recently approved Codes for the Wholesale and
Retail Tobacco Trades. The tests of the orders are attached.
Retail Tobacco Wages 10% Higher
The Retail and Wholesale Tobacco Trades have supported the President's
program to increase purchasing power. The retail Tobacco Code, for example,
requires minimum wages more than 10 percent higher than those in the general
Retail Code. It is thought by NRA that every reasonable effort should be made
to insure such reasonable standards of competition as will permit the continued
payment of these wages. It is also important that in a trade so characterized by
small enterprises, a reasonable minimum of income should be insured to the small
storekeeper for whom, at the end of the week, such income as may be earned is
tantamount to wages.

A clarification of the proper procedure for

The Executive order provided that handi-
capped persons may be permitted to engage.
In homework upon obtaining a certificate
from the State agency designated by the
United States Department of Labor. It was
specified that these certificates were to be
issued in accordance with instructions issued
by the United States Department of Labor.
On June 2 the United States Department of
Labor circularized Code Authorities affected
and listed the classes of homeworkers who
may secure homework certificates: (1) Those
suffering from a physical defect; (2) those
who must remain at home to care for an
invalid; (j8) those accustomed to homework
prior to the Code prohibition, and too old
to be readjusted to factory routine. Instruc-
tions were sent by the United States De-
partment of Labor, to govern issuance of
homework certificates, to agencies designated
by it in every State.
How to Get Certificates
However, confusion appears to exist, and
many applications for homework certificates
were sent to NRA offices in Washington.
Therefore, -to clarify procedure, the NRA
Homework Committee established by the Ad-
ministrator's order, made the following
Wherever a homeworker wishes to ob-
tain a certificate to do homework, he should
first contact the manufacturer who is willing
to give out homework. The manufacturer,
if he has not already been instructed by the
Code Authority of his industry, should con-
tact the Code Authority to determine the ad-
dreiss of the State authority to which applica-
tion for a homework certificate may be made.
Either the manufacturer or the prospective
homewvorker may make application for the
special Industrial Homeworker ,-ertiftiate.

Maximum hours are prescribed as 40 per
week, with a normal work day of S hours,
but there are various exceptions.
Minimum hourly wages are 30 cents, 35
cents, and 37',2 cents an hour for various
classes of work. Female employees perform-
ing substantially the same work as male em-
ployees shall receive the same pay. Where
the minimum hourly wage in any plant on
May 1, 1934, was higher than the Code sched-
ules, that May 1 rate shall not be reduced,
except on the approval of the Administrator.
In a letter to the President informing him
of the approval, the Administrator gave the
background of its preparation as follows:
The original Code was presented on August 18,
1933, by the Association of Manufacturers In the
Aluminum Industry, an unincorporated member-
ship society organized In 1933, representing over
95 percent of the known members of the industry
and about 97 percent in volume of production. A
joint public bearing was held September 28, 1933.
at which the proponents of this Code, together
with those of the Secondary Aluminum Industry
and the Aluminum Fabricators Group, were heard.
A Code for the Secondary Aluminum Industry was
approved February 6, 1934, with a provision that
upon the election of the Administrator It may be
made a supplemental Code to this major Code for
the Aluminum Industry when approved. The
Code presented by the Aluminum Fabricators
Group represents a minority Interest of less than
3-percent activity and Is in direct conflict and
overlaps with the major Code for the Aluminum
Industry. The Code presented by the Association
of Manufacturers in the Aluminum Industry was
revised during the recess of the bearing and was
submitted In Its final form for approval. The
Aluminum Industry as outlined In the approved
Code embraces all steps in the industry from the
mining of bauxite, the beneflcatlon of bauxite, and
the reduction of alumina to virgin aluminum and
the subsequent fabrication of suh virgin aluminum
and the sale of such fabricated products.
The Code provides for a Code Authority of
11 members, each connected with a member
of the association and representing a.nd
elected by a Commodity Division, except that
the representative of Secondary Aluminum
shallU be elected by the Aluminum Research
Institute. No member of the industry shall
have more than four representatives and one
member Is to be elected to represent the
members of industry who are nuot members
of the Association. The Administrator of
NRA has the right to appoint up to three
members in addition to the above.
A total of 630,974.00 1)was reached in en-
gineering constn li-tion awards throughout the
country during the lirst half of 1934, acc(.ord-
oing to reports to the Engineering Ncevs-
Record. This Is a gain of 41.5 percCen over
the first 6 months of 1933, when the amount
was $445,6u8,000. June 1934, is 32 percent
ahead In dollar value of awards of June 1033,
and 9 percent ahead on the volume index
after adjustment for thic maximum 21 peL'r-
cent higher cost index.
Comparion by wi-uekly averages shows that
private work in June 1934 was 42 percent
below last year and for the average week to
June 30 was 10 percent below the first 6
months of 1433. The figures show that pub-
lic work is well ahead of the corresponding
period of last year. All territories show
gains in June over the same month of 1933

The bulletin said: "The members of the
Transformer Section recently had the pleas-
are of studying a statistical survey, the fig-
urea of which, if only partially correct, should
give other elecrricalt manufacturers something
encouraging to anticipate, for a change."
"Present load building results Indicate that
new load added on the upturn in business
will be greater than that during the down-
ward trend instead of less as estimated here."
"The basis for the cnclusions arrived,"
States the bulletin. "Is the estimated new load
which has been added since the peak of 1929."
Reflecting optimism, it continues: Be-
tween constantly increasing load, new gener-
sating equipment to provide the extra -ervice,
line extension, maintenance and repair, and
new appliances and power consuming and dis-
tributing devices which will facilitate con-
I gumption, it looks as if the electrical manu-
Sfacturing industry as a whole can take heart

* These prices are distinctly of an emergency
nature and are to bie effective for a period of

so that NRA may be able to decide at the end
Sof the period whether a continuation will be

Codes of fair competition for the Retail
and Wholesale Tobacco Trades were signed
on June 9 and 19. It has long been a matter
iof common knowledge, because of the use of

Cope With Design Piracy
When the members of the silk textile in-
dustry met last fall to frame a Code of Fair
Competition for their trade, they realized
that they were at last in a position to cope
effectively with the evil of design piracy.
The protection of ori"-irnal designs had long
been the chief problem of the silk textile
trade. While design piracy, a general phrase
used to describe the unauthorized copying by
one manufacturer of the designs, patterns,
and styles of another, was prevalent in many
"style" industries, It was probably present
in Its most aggravated form in the silk textile
Manufacturers of high-grade silks would
expend large sums in an attempt to procure
new and suitable designs, some firms spend-
ing more than half a million dollars annually
on designs, art, and fashion production.
Naturally, only a few of the designs pre-
sented to the public each year catch Its fancy,
and the rest, victims of the unpredictable
whims of the consumer, are of necessity dis-
carded. The manufacturer must therefore
be able to make a profit on the popular de-
signs sufficient to cover the losses sustained
on the other designs.
Busin,--ss and industrial conditions In ('an-
ton, Ohio. for the first 6 months of 1934
showed a remarkable increase over the same
period of 1933, according to statistics com-
piled and released by the Canton Chamber of
Industrial employment in Canton on June
1, 1934,. was approximately 73 percent greater
than at the same time last year and more
than 100 percent than on June 1. 1932. Num-
ber of workers employed in Canton factories
on June 1, 19341, was greater than at any
time since the last quarter of 1929.
Retail sales in Canton for the first half of
1934 averaged from 50 to 70 percent better
than during the same period of 1933. Oar
loadings for each of the 6 months of 1934
ranged from 60 to 90 percent greater than
during the same months of last year. Bank
clearings were 70 percent better during April,
May, and June of the present year than they
were during the corresponding months of 1933.
tratlon to a study of the subject, with a view
to providing such protection as might seem
necessary. Studies submitted indicate that
the lowest reasonable cost (f the wholesale
distribution of cigarettes is around 71.;j per-
cent of the selling price, and of retail distri-
bution around 20 percent. They ohow that,
to establish minimum pric'-s so as to Insure
recovery of these margins by tobacco dis-
tributocrs would in some Instanc:es raise pre-
vailing prices of cigarettes as much as 2
or 3 cents a package. Therefore, the ac-
tual mark-up fixed Is substantially less
than the lowest reasonable costs indicated.
The studies also Indicate that an important
reason for the present inadequate operating
margins is the use of cigarettes as "bait
by unrelated retail trades.

for new styles and especially of a woman's
dislike to appear In a dress similar to that
which her next-door neighbor Is wearing, the
life of the original design was considerably
shortened, further decreasing the profits of
the manufacturer originating and first pre-
senting the design to the public. The design-
ers as well as the reputable manufacturers
suffered from the piracy, for the latter hesi-

Registration Bureau Establishes
The reputable manufacturers made deter-
mined efforts to combat this piracy. They set
tip a Design Registration Bureau as a central
clearing houee for designs and In a "code of
honor" agreed to respect registered designs.
But In general that was merely an agree-
ment on the part of the honest manufacturers
to remain honest-the pirates refused to join
and the plan was doomed to failure.
The National Industrial Recovery Act, with
Its offer to industry to enter into enforcible
codes of fair competitionn offered a solution.
The silk manufacturers saw the possibilities
and accordingly section 5 of article VIII
was written into the fair trade practice sec-
tion of their Code.
Ship and Bill Goods
The National Recovery AdminIlstratlon has
exempted until August 1, members of the
underwear and allied pr:duts manufacturing
industry from tiat provision of the Code re-
garding advanced dating. The relaxation of
the provision is necessary to meet the present
seasonal production of the industry pending
an amendment of the Code, It was stated.
The ,.'rder -specides that on advaune orders
for fall merchandise, calling for delivery on
or before August 1, the seller may ship and
bill such merchandise when, manufactured"
on terms not in excess of those stated in the
Code, with an allowance of interest at the
rate of 6 percent per annum from the date of
maturity of the bill to the date when the bill
would have matured if rendered according to
the date of delivery named in the order.
The application for the exemption was
made b7. the Code Authority after a commit-
tee It -ad appointed had made a study of
the problem and canvassed the industry. The
effect of the exemption will be of benefit to
many of the manufacturers, particularly the
smaller ones. since It will have the effect of
enabling them to obtain help from the buyers
in financing their operations.
Under the provisions of the Code the manu-
facturer Is not allowed to invoice goods be-
fore the date of shipment specified in the
order. The manufacturer must carry the
entire burden of financing his merchandise
until on some later date although he may
ship the goods at an earlier date. It was ex-
plained that under the exemption the manu-
facturer may ship bis merchandise at any
time prior to the shipping date specified in
the order and to invoice tje buyer as of the
shipping date: at the same time allowing the
buyer an additional discount of 6 percent
on the face value of the invoice, for the time
which the actual shipping date antedates the
specified delivery date.

"To be sure, building costs have Increased'
like nearly everything else from the all-time.:

thews in the current Dow Service Buildingi
Reports; but when current prices and
wages paid on actual construction projects
are compared with cost for other periods,..
the index shows: .

Continuing his analysis, Mr. Matthews, .
says: "The lowest index being 55 for Julyl-
1933, and the 1929 figure being 100.3, a range
of -15.8 points, exact attainment of half re

index at 77.65, whereas it stands at the.i
March figure of 71.5, with no indication that.
it will go higher for the present. There .s'i
supporting evidence in many quarters to thed
belief that there will be a further slight 'i

FACTS.-It appearing that the language of the

wise gainfully employed, the following Interpre.

may employ as a salesman an employee of a non.
member of the Trade. provided that said employee

calling In person etn or telephoning to investors-at
the latterai' home for the purpose of solciting the
deposit or exchange of securities under a plan of
reorganlzation of a corporation without tae In-
viator's written permission. The questLon arises
whether such procedure Is a violation of Article

proved March 23, 1934. which Is as follows:
-' No salesman shall '.all In person upon or
