NRA Announces as Part of General Prograi
of Improvement Complete Realignment of :4
Codes to New Classification of Business
The National Recovery Administration has announced as part of the geiin
program of improvement, a virtually complete realignment of its Code gr'
ings to conform to a new fundamental classification of all industries and tra'
This basic classification, completed after studies of many months; assigj
by the Administrator to a specially created economic unit, corresponds 81'-
to the groupings of the Census Bureau and of the international classifiatioj
but is more thoroughly developed than either.
Keynote of the classification is recognition of 22 classes within which eV'e.
known industry or trade has a definite place. ,
The effect of the classification on NRA's
administrative machinery will be:
1 Assembling of Codes into 22 industry
groupings under the existing industry di-
visions. The sections thus assembled have
been transferred among the divisions so that
each contains only the most closely allied
groups defined by the new classification.
2. Transfer of personnel In many cases so
as to keep experienced men with their Codes.
3. Two or three master Codes will have
their component supplements distributed
among several deputies, but always under
the direction of a single division head.
Reasons for Changes
The reasons for the changes are:
1. Assurance that allied lines receive
identical treatment on common problems.
2. Reduced administrative overhead by
eliminating duplication of functions and
3. Opportunity for many allied Codes to
merge by-,voluntary action of industry for
greater economy in the self-government
4. Cleared perspective ou the several
NEW TIRE "FLOOR" PRICES
New Schedule Relieves Small Manufacturers, but Continues
to Recognize Necessity for Price Differentials
for Various Groups of Distributors
Made effective August 27, and continuing until October 1, thd retail floor
prices of rubber tires will be changed, mainly to allow those differentials in
selling prices which have prevailed in the trade in the past.
When minimum prices were, set in May, it was felt by tire manufacturers
that the retail market prices of well-known tires would be maintained above the
low levels and that the differentials previously existing would be maintained.
The intensity of competition, which came with declining volume brought all
prices to the lowest reasonable cost established in May. Investigation by
division I and the division of research and planning indicated that small manu-
facturers and independent distributors were not obtaining their customary
shares of the reduced volume of business. A public hearing was held on
August 3, at which time the retail trade presented a request for advanced prices

Alcohol Industry "Free Trial" Point
NRA Approves Supplemental
Code Correcting Destructive
The National Recovery Administrator an-*
nounced his approval of a supplemental Code
of fair competition for the industrial alcohol
industry, a division of chemical manufactur-
In his letter to President Roosevelt giving
a resumd of the Code, the A'dmiLilstrator
states that the labor provisions of the parent
Code are included in the supplemental Code.
In the matter of trade practices, he points
out that some of the Code's provisions are
aimed at correcting destructive price com-
petition existing in this industry and were
given a great deal of consideration in order to
harmonize them with administration policy.
In the article relating to price filing, it is
provided that inasmuch as certain products
of the hardwood distillation industry, name-
ly, methyl alcohol for antifreeze, are used for
Identical antifreeze purposes, as ethyl, iso-
propyl, and various types of inmethyl alcohol as
covered by this Code, the tiling of prices on
the last named products * is not to
becoale effective until and unless a provision
for the filing of prices of the above named
products which are covered by the hardwood
distillation industry Code * are in-
corporated in that Code. When this is ac-
complished, price filing under each Code
shall be exch.,inged. * *"
Obviously ", said the Administrator. "' the
open filing of prices by the industrial alcohol
industry on products which are directly com-
petitive with almost identical products pro-
duced by the hardwood distillation industry
would not be any aid to them in reducing or
knowing about destructive price competition
unless the open filing of prices were adopted
also by-the hardwood distillation industry
for the products referred to. For the same
reason, the other fair trade practices are not
to become effective in respect to the products
of the Industrial alcohol industry which are
competitive with methyl alcohol sold for anti-
freeze by the hardwood distillation industry,
unless the other trade practice provisions
specified in the article are also adopted by
the hardwood distillation industry."
The National Recovery Administrator an-
nounced he had declared an emergency to
exist int the Ice industry In the competitive
area comprising the parishes of Orleans,
Jefferson, and St. Bernard, La. The cause
assigned was given as destructive price cut-
ting due to excessive overproduction.
It was ordered that for a period of 90
days from August 8, 1934, no member of the
Industry shall selIl or cause to be disposed of,

than 600 pounds), 28 cents per hundred

Members of the industry are required,
within 10 days of the date of the order, to
file price lists not lower thnn the above prices,
with the Louisiana Committee of Arbitration
and Appeal and with the Code Authority.
In the matter of an inquiry submitted to
the National Recovery Administration by the
Paint Industry Recovery Board, Inc., of
Washington, D.C., pertaining to advertised
" four-months-free trial sales In the paint,
varnish, and lacquer manufacturing industry,
the ruling was announced that such trans-
acrions, if beyond a period of 60 days, are a
violation of the Code for that industry.
The maximum period for which these "free
trial shipments may be made is 60 days.
Helped by Code
Monterey Sardine Industries, Inc.
Saved From Destructive -
Unfair Trade Practices, '
S Says Letter to NRA
The Code for California sprdlue processors
has been the salvation of that industry, as-.
cording to a letter received by the Nationsl
Recovery Administration from a member of
The Monterey Sardine Industries, I.a, a
cooperative concern of sardine boat oper-
ators, was asked to furnish certain statistical
information to the NRA. In sending the re-
quested information the organization credited
the Code with stopping destructive price
cutting, chiseling, rebnLates, and other such
practices" which had brought the Industry
almost to the brink of ruin."
"An improved spirit of cooperation in all
branches of the industry "' was cited as a re.
suIlt of NRA operation.
Excerpts from the letter follow:
The sardine catching and processing In-
dustry of California, in our opinion, would,
be prostrate at this time, bad It not been foray'
the passage of the National Recovery Act
and the adoption of a Code by the processors
which has been followed by a more satils-
factory collective bargaining agreement be-
tween the processors, boat owners, and fisher-
men than has been formulated in the past '
history of the industry. Destructive price
cutting, chiseling, rebates, and other such
practices had brought the California sardine
industry almost to the brink of ruin, and the
outlook only 1 year ago seemed almost hope-
less. As indicated above, it is a different
picture today, and is our sincere hope that
the emergency legislation which has saved
our industry will be made permanent.
"The outlook is very much more hopeful
now, largely due to the NRA, the Sardine
Processors Code, and an improved spirit ofat
cooperation in all branches of the industry.
What is true of our organization ia true
also of the other sardine boat owners' or-
ganizations In California."

'It Is not proposed by NRA that industries

classifications, nor is It intended any direct

Mergers Between Identical Interests
The Code mergers which are expected to
result eventually will take place between
units of almost identical economic interest
whose separation at this time Is based on
arbitrary and personal rather than economic
reasons. A tentative objective has been an
over-all total of about 250 pacts instead of
the present 682.
Trade associations will be encouraged to
retain their separate identities even when the
Code group is merged. At present some Codes
actually embrace as many as 30 separate
trade associations, each collecting statistics
and carrying on technical work under the
general supervision of the master Code group.
To make possible the transfer now ordered,
without Interruption of administration, the
Codes were gone over one by one: the defini-
tions of ench were studied; the deputies in
charge were consulted; the Code authorities
of nimany were called in. As a result, every
completed or pending Code was moved indi-
vidually to a definite and acceptable place.
It Is expected that Industries will move
toward Code mergers as they gain admnilis-
trative experience, both to bring themselves
Into better coordination with kindred groups
and to reduce the unit cost of administration.
Studies of Code Expense
Studies of Code -rxT'enwr rto industry now
are being made both In NRA and outside to
reach the ilniniLum consistent with ,IT,.ctive
administration. Preliminary Indlcationa are
that there is room for very marked overhead
reduction, and the experience of the adminis-
tration in watching the operation of Codes
Indicated that nimarked saving to industry will
result In the groupings of smaller industries
into larger administrative units.
Until the present classification was under-
taken, the Codes had been nsslgned pertly by
relationship to one another, hut especially to
fit the special abilities of division admlnis-
trators. -This basis for assignment was essen-
tial in the early rush days of NRA.

.Wine Growers Paper and Pulp Depression and Recovery Danger Is Takel
Get Labor Code -- POb.oobIN(SURVEY o uRREN.T nusIsd From Firecracker
During Vintage Season Employees
Engaged in Actual Production
Allowed Leeway in Work-
*' ing Hours
abe National Recovery Administration has
announced its approval of a Code of labor
prevlsions for the wine industry. The fair
'* gds practices for the industry were ap-
: proved by the President on December 27,
Approval of the labor provisions was given
withI a proviso that they be stayed for 10
bay after the effective date, or until Septem-
ler 12, in order that any possible objections
might be considered.
A further proviso requires that, within 60
dayoS af the Code's effective date, the Wine
producers' Association and the Eastern Wine
Growers' Association shall each amend its
institution and bylaws to remove the in-
feitable restrictions they now contain.
The Code establishes a 40-hour maximum
work week of not more than 9 hours in any
I day, and a 6-day week. Executive, super-
visory, and technical employees receiving $35
Kr more a week, and junior technical em-
ployees receiving $25 or more a week, are
exempt from the limitation on hours of work.
Watchmen may work 56 hours a week but
Bt more than 13 days in a 14-day period.
Chauffeurs and delivery men are limited to
48 hours a week.
During the vintage season, which is de,
eribed as covering a period of 12 weeks each
year, employees engaged in actual produc-
tion and processing may work not to exceed
(0 hours per week, or 10 hours a day, or 6
ays a week. Checkers and clerical em-
ployees used primarily to compile necessary
records required by the Government also will
be limited to 60 hours during the vintage
season. They will be paid for time in exc-ss
of 40 hours at not less than an hourly rate
to he determined by dividing the weekly
mount regularly paid by 40.
The Code provides that until such time as
Itrained personnel is available to relieve the
shortage of champagne handlers, employees

and members of finishing crews may work
lot more than 48 hours a week.
Employees may be worked also as long as
48 hours when it becomes necessary to oper-
msate a plant continuously to prevent spoilage.
A minimum wage of $16, with a differen-
IaI of $2 for office boys and messengers, is
established for office employees. Watchmen
will be paid $16 a week.
Employees engaged in such work as label-
lkg, wrapping, and finishing bottles will he
paid not less than 35 cents an hour. This
light work is usually done by women and
girls. All other employees, except office boys,
messengers, and those doing light work, will
be paid a minimum of 40 cents an hour.
In his letter to the President informing
him that the Code had been approved, the
Administrator said it has been estimated
there will be produced, in 1934, from 40,-
00.000 to 45,000,000 gallons of wine. Be-
fre prohibition, the annual production was
pprTorimately 52,000.000 gallons and during
the prohibition period the annual production
amonnnted to about 700,000 gallons.
Continuing his statistical information, the
Administrator said there are some 500
wineries In the country, the majority located
IN California. In that State there is made
90 percent of all the wine produced. There
are about 2,500 workers engaged in the in-

THE production cycle in the paper and
pulp industry is similar to that found In
the average manufacturing industry.
There appears a rapid decline in production
from June 1929 to June 1932. There was a
speculative movement about the middle of
1933 and some reaction from this movement
in 1934. Production in June 1933 could
hardly be regarded as typical of the year
1933. The volume of production in manu-
facturing industry reached a peak in July
1933, and receded rather rapidly in the re-
mainder of the year. On the average, indus-
try has jeen on a higher level of production
In 1934 than in 1033.
The employment cycle is also in accordance
with that found in other industries, but dif.
fers materially from the production cycle.
In June 1932 employment had declined to
76 percent of its status in June 1933, whereas
The National Recovery Administrator an-
nounced approval of a Code of Fair Competi-
tion for the refrigerated warehousing indus-
try, effective August 20, 1034.
In his statement to the President concern-
ing the Code, the Administrator calls atten-
tion to the fact that the industry "is vital
to the health and well-being of the American
public." It embraces 540 establishments,
with an aggregate capacity of 325,000,X000
cubic feet and approximately 10.0D) em-
ployees. It has a capital investment of
Approximately 80 percent of the monimbers
of this industry fire also engaged in the ice
business, and use but one refrigerating and
engineering staff, with much other labor also
interchangeable. Notwithstanding, it is esti-
mated that employment will be increased ap-
proximately 25 percent, and that $210,(0)
annually will be added to the industry's pay
The Code provides a 48-hour week of not'
more than 6 days nor more than 9 hours In
any 24-hour period, with an allowance for
The proposed minimum hourly wage rate
vary from 275 cents to 37.5 cents, with dif-
ferentials established on the basis of size of
cities and regions. The minimum weekly
wage for clerical employees is $15.
The Code Authority is to consist of five
members of the industry, and. at the discre-
tion of the Administrator, three additional
members representing the Government.

9. HART COAL CORP. ET AL. v.
SPARKS ET AL., D.C. W.D. Ky,
May 19, 1934. (Dawson, J.)
The N.I.R.A. and the Administrator's
orders issued pursuant to the Bitu-
minous Coal Code fixing maximum
hours and nitlmum wages in the
western Kentucky field are unconsti-
tutional and void as not within the
commerce power of Congress. It is
axiomatic that Congress has no
power to regulate production.
The act and the orders cannot be
sustained for the additional reason
that there is an unconstitutional
delegation of authority to the Presi-
dent. No standards are set up to
guide him. Neither can they be sus-
tained under any alleged Federal
police power, nor under the Pream-
ble to the Constitution, which is not
a grant of power, nor under the
power to provide for the general wel-
fare since this power exists only In
connection with the taxing power.
Nor can the power to coin money
be relied upon to support the act.
Plaintiffs have no adequate remedy
at law. They are not stopped
merely because they have in the past
abided by the Code. The emergency
does not justify the act and the or-
ders. A preliminary injunction re-
straining their enforcement will issue.
10. UNITED STATES v. PERFECT
COAT & SUIT CO, D.C. N.J., May
11, 1934. (Avis, D.J.)
The defendant pleaded guilty to each
of the 10 counts of an indictment
charging it with paying employees
less than Code wages. The court
sentenced the defendant to pay a
total fine of $500 after the United
States district attorney recommend-
ed leniency due to the fact that the
firm had already paid the employees
through the Code Authority for the
Industry. (No written opinion.)
11. CLIFTON v. UNCLE SAM'S
STORES, INC.,,City Ct., Rochester,
N.Y., May 29, 1934. (Tompkins, J.)
Provisions of the Retail Food and
Grocery Code which allow executives
receiving $30 or more per week to
work In excess of the maximum
hours prescribed by the Code do not
require an employer to pay $30 per
week to all executives who work
overtime. As long as the executive
was paid at least $14, the minimum
wage for all employees, be is not
entitled to recover the difference be-
tween his salary and $80 a week.
The same reasoning applies to simi-
lar provisions of the President's Re-
12. UNITED STATES v. CLYDE
MILLS, INC., D.C. D. R.I., June 10,

failure to obey the hour and wage
provisions of the Cotton Textile
Code. Defendant was fined $100.
He also agreed to comply with the
Code In the future and to make resti-
tution of back wares.
13. STATE v. PATTON, Ct. Crim. Cor-
rection, St. Louis, Mo., May 21,
1934. (Butler, J.)
Defendant worked some of his em-
ployees longer than the Cleaning
and Dyeing Code permitted, al-
though he displayed a siguboard
stating that he continues and main-
talns wages and hours at Code stand-
ards." He was fined for false and
misleading advertising on the ground

A Code Is An Opportunity
It Will Pay Us to Stick to Ours
From Photo-Engravers Bulletin, August 1934
Rocking the boat is fun only when the boat is in water so shallow that wading
out is a safe certainty; rocking the boat in deep water is sheer lunacy, even for
accomplished swimmers. All American industry is in deep water; deeper and
rougher in some respects than it was a year ago. This is no time to rock our NRA
boat. * After all, in there really anything incompatible between rugged
Individualism, that thinks and acts with vigor for individual interests, and reasoned
cooperation designed to serve the interests of the greatest number of individuals?
Isn't the photo-engraver who fondly thought that just the signing of our Code would
surrounds him with an effortless paradise due for an awakening? Didn't we warn,
long before the Code was approved, that "photo-engraving orders won't grow on
Photo-engravers seemed to be unanimous in their belief that destructive price
cutting was the besetting cancer that needed to be eradicated before industrial
health could prevail. We have known for years that chiseling was prevalent, and
that it made the going tough.
Now we can do something about it.. Now it is illegal to chisel-just the opposite
of when it was illegal to stop chiselingl The overwhelming majority of photo-
engravers do not choose to go back to the old model. To quote, "A Code is an
opportunity and "we must stick to the recovery job."

NRA and Pyrotechnic Code
Came the NRA and the Pyrotechnic Code.
The American manufacturers of fireworks
conferred with the Deputy Administrator in
charge of that Code of fair competition.
They showed that they had been forced
Into the manufacture of "salute" crackers
because a few had devised the Chinese plan
referred to; and the legitimate American
manufacturers had been compelled to resort
to similar production or go out of business.
The result was that they have proposed an
agreement with the NRA to declare produc-
tion and sale of fireworks containing magne-
slum or aluminum, which produces or assists
the explosion, as an unfair trade practice:
and the Code Authority and the NRA will see
that It Is enforced. Henceforth, the American
boy will have his noisy firecracker; but It
will be comparatively harmless.
"4Since Its advent as the emblem of co-
operation The Blue Eagle has been the
strongest weapon of the Administration In
the enforcement of the provisions of the
various Codes now operating in American
business and industry. It Is still going
strong . and few who are engaged in
mercantile business are willing to operate In
such a manner that they will be deprived of

NRA Compliance Division
Secures Restitution of -Pay
to 5,595 Employees in First
Two Weeks of August.
Back wages totaling $323,000 were ob-
tained for 13,762 workers throughout the,
country during the 6 weeks ended August 18
as a result of adjustments by State NRA
directors of complaints based, on alleged vio-
lations of Code wages and hours provisions.
Reports tabulated by NRA's compliance dl-'
vision show that during the last 2 weeks of
the period State directors effected the resti-
tution of $140,873 in back wages to 5,595 em-
ployees, while in the preceding 4 weeks'
period employers agreed to pay $182,127 to
8,167 workers-a total of $323.000 returned
to the workers involved in 4,158 complaints.
In all of the 4,158 complaints State direc-
tors were able to achieve satisfactory adjust-
ments without reference to Washington, and
usually the employer willingly agreed to the
restitution when the application of the par-
ticular Code to his casewas clearly explained.
The compliance division's tabulation of
State directors' reports for the 2 weeks' pe-
riod ended August 18, showing the number
of cases adjusted, the number of employees
affected, and the amount of restitution made,

NRA's grouping of 22 Codes in the textile industries is for coordinated administration.
These related industries, having similar problems, will be administered by one division
administrator with a staff of deputies. This textile industries division outlined in the.accom-
panying chart represents 111 separate industry units having 2,500,000 employees, $6,818,000,000
invested capital, and an annual volume of business of $8,970,000,000.
Each industry unit has elected a Code Authority from its own members to act as a Board
of Directors for directing its affairs on the industrial self-governing principle advocated by the
National Recovery Administrator. The public interest is safeguarded by representatives of the
NRA sitting on each Code Authority with power to call in representatives of labor, consumer,
or other interests.
Grouping of the indust-ry units is expected to bring closer harmony and effect amalgama-
tions of Codes. Some of the smaller Codes owe their existence merely to industry rivalries or
& personal ambitions.
