Order Governs

Posting Labor

Provisions

SEmployers Hereafter Will Post, in
SAddition to Order, All Inter-
U pretations or Explanations in
S Connection With Codes

-. Requirements more detailed than hereto-
'fore for the posting of labor provisions of
Codes of fair competition ha~e been aun-
Bounced by the National Recovery Adminis-
Stration.
Sin an administrative order (X-82) of the
.Administrator, dated September 1, the new
regulations governing the posting of labor
provisions are get forth as a substitute for
paragraph 1 of Administrative Order X-7,
dated February 2S, 1934.
The new requirements are that, in addition
to labor provisions which employers hereto-
.tore had to post, they now must post also
orders, interpretations, explanations, or state-
ments issued by the President or the Admin-
istrator as part of or iu connection * *
with such Code provisions.
This new order leaves unchanged all pro-
visions of Order X-7, except paragraph 1.
That new paragraph reads in full as follows:
"Every person shall, in the manner here-
inafter provided, make application for and
display official copies of labor provisions for
each Code to whi,.h he is subject or may
hereafter be subject. Such official copies of
labor provisions i.hereinafter referred to as
official copies) will contain la) the provi-
stons of the Code relating to hours of labor,
rates of pay. aud other conditions of empioy-
meat; such conditions, orders, interpreta-
t lons, explanations, or statements issued by
the President or the Administrator as part
of or in connection with any order approving
such Code or any amendment thereto so far
-as they relate to such provisions of the Code;

order by the Natilnual Recovery Adminis-
trator. The order was reiues(ed by the Cude
Authority for the trade to aid the home-
building and home-modernization program of
President Roosevelt.
This drop in costs was brouL.bht about by
application of the Code Authority to modify
former administration-approved rigur' and
percentages which constituted the minimum
overhead cost of selling and delivering build-
ers' supplies in less-thlan-carloadil qu-ntities.
This was done by eliminating items of in-
terest and lost accounts i exc,:epting ai reserve
for lost accounts of 1 percent), and establish-
lng specific modal percentage charges.
Materials Affected by Order
Materials affected by the order are as fol-
lows:
S Brick mortars, casement and steel sash,
cement and cement products, cement pipe,
ceramic tile, clay roof tile, common brick,

Extend Hawaiian

Exemptions

Certain Code exemptions heretofore granted
trades and industries in the Territory of
Hawaii have been extended until October 1,
1934. the National Recovery Administration
has announced. The exemption, however,
does not apply to the canning industry nor
to the can manufacturing industry.
Administrative Order X-0CO, of July 2. 1934,
provided that trades and industries In Hawaii
and Puerto Rico should be exempt from pre-
viously approved Codes of fair competition
until September 1, 1934; and be exempt, for
a period of 6 weeks, from Codes approved
after July 2. This order also provided that
at any time before the expiration of such
exemption applications could be made for

Inter-Code Coordination,


Second Stage in Program for Rationalizing Administratid
of Codes by Placing All Allied Business Together
According to Size and Similarity of Problems


Three new industry divisions created within the National Recovery Adm
istration to handle Textile, Chemical, and Utility Codes, substantially cdmp]i
the administrative structure needed for administering regrouped Codes.
Their formation was a second stage in the program of rationalizing ad5i
istration by placing all allied industries together and allocating them, for N]
purposes, to 22 sections. ,

Aviation Code
The National Recovery Administration has
announced its approval of a Code of fair com-
petition for the $50,000,000 commercial avia-
tion industry. The Code becomes effective
September 10.
In his letter notifying President Roosevelt
of the Code's approval, the National Re-
covery Administrator said the "direct effect
of this Code is found in the organization of
a hitherto unorganized industry toward the
utilization of its full productive capacity.
Elimination of unfair trade practices and
destructive competitive methods should in-
crease in volume of business."


Wage Scale Stands, Says NRA

Industrial Appeals Board


Exemption Given to Two Companies Because Majority
Members Agree Upon Minimum Provision


The Industrial Appeals Board has recom-
mended that the applications of the Eldred
Crushed Stone Co., Eldred, Ill., and the
Staunton Tie and Lumber Co., Jerseyville,
Ill., for exemption from the minimum wage
provisions of the Cruched Stone, Saud aud
Gravel, and Slag Industry Code be denied.
This is the third recommendation rendered
by the board. The first two were recom-
mendations made immediately effective by
the adminisitration, and in favor of the appli-
cants.
The wage scale has been agreed upon by
the overwhelming majority of prroducers",
the board said in its recommendation, and
the granting of an exemption to these ap-
pellants might undermine the entire stand-
ards of minimum wage rates provided for in
the Code, without producing any general
public benefitt"
The Ioanlrd in its recnmmrindation-i recog-
nized that the -plight of the applicants is
appalling", but emphasized there is no in-
dication that the Code can be held responsi-
ble for the condition.
Text of Recommendation
The text of the board's recommendation
follows: Industrinl Appeals Board, appeal of
Eldred Crushed Stone Co. and Staunton Tie
and Lumber Co. Crushed Stone, Sand and
Gravel, and Slag Industries Code (No. 109),
Recoiimrennlntion No. 3
The appellants arc operators of plants in
the crushed stone, sand and gravel, and slag
industries A petition was originally filed
by 25 quarry owners seeking exemption n from
the applicable mininumn wage rate provided
by the Code. This petition was denial by
the Code Authority and by the Assistant
Deputy Administrator. On July 17, 11,34. an
appeal was filed with this board, and on
Auglst S, 1031, a hearing was held thereon
at which time two of the applicants aprcoa'rel
in person and *t third filed a tateienit.
At the hearing before this board. nas well
as at the previn. h lienrings, it wnas anr'ured
on behalf of the petitioners that their busi-
np s.eS wore linildopertd- i'plaint,. which
could not pay the same minimum wages as
the "-mnchine-nperated" plants. winch only


require about oue-seventh of the number of
employees per ton produced. Nineteen of the
twenty-five origin.,l lietitioners were from Dis-
trict No. 9, in which there appears tu be from
500 to 60q producers, not more than 100 of
whom have an output in excess of 25.000O
tons .pert year. 'he remainder tire of the
same general ty..pe its most of the petitioners.
Some of the petitioners have highly mecia.
nized plants. One has a plaint with a ca-
pacity of approximately. 75,u00 tons per year.
It appears that there is no clear uine of
denialrcati on between haunI- and machine-
operated plauts. All plants use some ma-
chinery.; all plants use some hand labor.
Any definition designed to catalog plants in
oue or the other of thle two categories would
apparently Ie extremely dith-ult to ad-
minis-iter i nd aighlt lead "to abuses The tes-
til[ony given iby the two alppi-Illants who put

plant of one is engaged in ,peratine n deposit
which contains more than the usual amount
of impurities and waste materials: that the
other produces as a major product agricul-
tural limestone which is generally put on
the market as a byproduct.
The plight of the appellants who are
threatened through ecnonomice forces with the
necessity of having to close their plants is
appealing. There is no indication, however,
that this conditlou wvas brought about by the
Cole. The ,rvieneu'? given by one of the
petitioners himself shows that even in 193:.

Knit Workers |
The NRA has announced that an empldiyq
in the knitted outerwear industry may -ntI
determine the minimum pay of a pieceworker'
by averaging the wages for 2 or more weeks
Regardless of the employee's actual earnnigd
in any 1 week, the wage payment must be'4tW
least the minimum of $14 established by thej
Code. ,-i
The case cited was that of an employee "
whose piecerate earnings for 1 week was $-i
for 40 hours' work, but whose earnings th&:lt
next week amounted to only $12. The NRi
was asked to pass upon the right of the ei',
player to "average" the earnings of the.::1'2
weeks in determining- whether the employee--
was receiving the minimum wage. ".
The ruling of the Administration was that,
"each wpel;'s earnings of an employee shall"
he considered Iniepedlently, and without ref;-
erence to any other week's earnings "; ani'd
that if a piecework employee fails to produce
enough work in any 1 week to result in ear f.M
ings equal to or greater than the minimuinm
wares specified in the Cpde, the differei'*e
between the wages actually earned and 'tle
minimum wages must be paid by the erm-in2
ployer to the employee. ".-M

Effective Enforcement of Codes Agreement Aids Marine Equipment

i Requires Time Shingle Trade Code Approved


4ount Taylor, Chairman Ice Code Authority, Pleads with
,: Industry to Put into Effect New Recovery Laws
with Same Regard Given Other Statutes


. Mount Taylor, chairman of the Code Au-
thority for the Ice ludustry, believes that
business conditions are changing so rapidly
that the "march of time is being measured
ii months instead of years." He states that
%fie happenings are so rapid that "men's
ijusiness vision and judgment" are daily put
tb test.
:' He says: "Men accept with patience the
necessary delays in the enforcement of ordi-
nary iew laws, but for some unaccountable
reason seem to expect this one to be different.
Inthe.course of our work here we have seen
pen go literally mad over the delay of a
few months in the legal enforcement of a
Code provision which meant only a few hun-
dred dollars to them, while at the same time
they were accepting with stoic patience a de-
lay of years in the enforcement of a civil
Ouilt In court which meant thousands of dol-
lars to them.
K;"Administrative and judicial machinery and
iprocedure for handling our ordinary criminal
and civil laws have been well established
Ver the years. Machinery and procedure for
the administration and enforcement of Code
laws are less than a year old. And yet If a
criminal burns my house and it takes 2 years
Ito enforce the law against him, I think noth-
ieg of it, but if my ice competitor takes one
bf my customers In violation of a provision
of this new Ice Code and the law Is not en-
forced against this violatorin 60 days, I raise
W:.rumpus with everybody from the secretary
of theiCommittee of Arbitration and Appeal
to the President of the United States. I
wear the Code is no good, that it cannot be
eaforced, that the Government has broken
Lt promise, and I withdraw my support from
and severely criticize the very agencies who
tire trying to help me and who must continue
E0 fight the case if I am to be given the relief
which enforcement will bring.
C Code Provisions Are New Law
"What every ice man should and what
Miome are apparently falling to realize Is this:
T'he provisions of the Ice Code are new laws.
They must, insofar as enforcement through
the courts is concerned, be administered by
The process of law, and this takes time.
Spme of these Code provisions may be thrown
6at by the courts. Others will undoubtedly
'pheld and retained. But at present they
Mall a part of the laws of our country. The
government of the United States, the great-
t,country on earth, Is behind them. They
ie in line with the declared policy of our
greaident. They cannot be laughed off or
19'hfly ignored without ultimate serious con-
pqfence.
r'-: Permissive Features of Code

irnment. We have been slow to appreciate

tive and making use of the self-control priv-
ileges of the Code, we have been much In-
cdined to 'go tell teacher-to sit down and
cry to the Government to make Johunie
behave.'
"The Government is trying to make John-
nie behave, but It is a slow process, andi In
many Instances the Industry could do It much
more quickly and effectively. With an Intelli-
gent and aggressive use of the self-govein-
ment privileges which the Code offers, there Is
little excuse for allowing one or two recalci-
trant operators to wreck an entire market
or for allowing two or three madmen to de-
stroy each other and muddy the waters in an
entire area.
"But the effective use of these permissive
features of the Code requires work-Intelli-
gent, persistent, and aggressive effort. It
would be easier if Uncle Sam would do this
for you, but he cannot do it nearly so quickly
or effectively as you.
"Codes cannot remove the hazards of busi-
ness or take the place of business initiative.
'God helps those who help themselves.' No
Code can save your business and make money
for you. It can help you. It can be used as
a valuable tool, but you must exercise the
Initiative and the intelligence to use it. And
by this we mean use It yourself and not wait
for the Government to use It for you."



Jewish Holidays


for Fur Workers
Fur manufacturers and their employees
may take time off to celebrate the five Jewish
holidays that fall within the next 4 weeks,
without actual loss of any time, NRA has an-
nounced.
Worried over the prospect of having their
production programs broken, members of the
industry, through their Code Authority, di-
rected the attention of the NRA to the loss
of time that most certainly would be reg-
istered unless a special dispensation were
granted.
The following holidays have been granted:
September 10, 11, and 19. The time lost on
these 3 days may be made up on September
1, 8, and 15.
It was added that those members who, be-
cause of religious reasons, do not wish to
work on Saturdays, may, upon written ap-
plication to the Code Authority, be permitted
to work on the following Sundays, Septem-
ber 2, 9, and 16.
Time lost by those joining in observance
of the holidays known as the Feast of the
Tabernacle. September 24, 25. and October 1.
may be made up on the next succeeding
Saturday or Sunday, on special application
to the Code Authority.


Limitation of Canadian Imports
Greatly Benefits American Man-
ufacturers, Says C. E. Putman,
Pacific Coast Dealer

NRA's action In procuring a voluntary limi-
tation of Canadian shingle exports to the
United States has greatly benefited the Amer-
Iran shingle manufacturer who "has been
forced to operate on a continually over-sup-
plied market and received no protection what-
ever for over 20 years", according to a letter
received by the Administration from a Seattle
manufacturer.
In July the National Recovery Administra-
tion announced an agreement with Canadian
manufacturers of red-cedar shingles to volun-
tarily limit their e-ports to this country to
an amount equal to 25 percent of domestic
consumption as estimated, for stated inter-
vals for the domestic industry, by the Code
Authority. The action, it was stated, was
taken by the Canadian producers with a view
to cooperate with the recovery program in
the United States.
The text of the letter from C0. B. Putmnan,
Coast Cedar Sbhingle Co., Seattle, Wash.,
follows:
"It is gratifying, Indeed, to receive your
good letter of August 16 advising the Ca-
nadian shingle Imports are actually on a
quota basis and have been since June 22,
1934.
I think that we can speak for the indus-
try In expressing our thanks to you and your
branch of the Government for giving us this
protection.
"There is a small group of large mills who
felt that the Canadian percentage should be
held to a smaller figure, but these mills do
not represent the industry; in fact, they rep-
resent the small group that was removed
from the control of the Washington-Oregon
Shingle Association at the annual meeting in
late June.
It is safe to say that by far the large ma-
jority of the American shingle manufacturers
are well pleased with this control over Ca-
nadian shingle imports, and there is a general
feeling that the 75/25 basis is fair enough.
The American consumer must be considered,
and there are times when the demand ex-
ceeds the capacity of the American mills.
Should there at any time be occasion to
change this percentage, a sliding scale should
be a fair basis: The Canadian percentage
might be reduced to as low as 20 percent on
a low market and increased to as high as 50
percent when there is a buying wave.
"We in the shingle business have had no
protection whatever for over 20 years and
have been forced to operate on a continually
over-supplied marketL. The inequalities of the
Shingle Code have been almost entirely re-
moved: and, with this control over Canadian
shingle imports, we now have what I believe
to be one of the model Codes under the NRA."


Canners Adopt Labels that Plainly

Define Package Contents


Special Committee Opposes Any System Similar to "A-B-C"
Grade Because It Does Not Insure Consumer
Proper Information of Goods

The special committee designated by the Canning Industry and approved
by the Administrator for the formulation of standards of quality for products
of the Canning Industry has made the following report:


"Better and more information on the
labels of canned foods was proposed by the
canning Industry committee, appointed in
pursuance of President Roosevelt's order in
connection with the Canners' Code. This
committee discussed a new approach to the
labeling problem by which there would be
placed on labels descriptive Information as
will enable consumers to buy more intelli-
gently.
"At the same time the committee ex-
pressed the Industry's definite disapproval of
the so-called 'A-B-C' or any other similar
grading-labeling system.
"The Industry's opposition to any system
of grades similar to the 'A-B-C' grading-
labeling system is based on the fact that a
single symbol or grade designation does
not furnish the consumer with the informa-
tion as to the various individual characteris-
tics of the product which enter into her
choice of a food. The industry is convinced
from Its experience that such a grading-label-
ing system would not be enforceable and
believes its adoption would in consequence of
false labeling result In a situation more
hurtful than helpful to the consumer. A fur-
ther serious objection Is that such a grading-
laheling system would, through competition,
create a tendency to reduce the quality of its
products to the minimum of a grade.


Use Descriptive Labels
"On the other hand, the descriptive label-
ing proposed by the canners contemplates the
use of specific terms descriptive of individual
cliaracteristics as 'tiny', 'small', 'medium',
or large' to describe size; 'very tender',
' tender ', 'mellow ', or firm to describe tex-
ture; 'cut', 'whole', 'sliced ', pitted ', un-
pitted ', 'peeled ', 'unpeeled ', etc., to describe
style of pack ; unsweetened ', 'light sirup',
'medium sirup', or heavy sirup' to describe
sugar content; names of varieties where
these are significant to consumer; number of
pieces or servings or volume of contents in
common terms such as cupfuls.
"The accuracy of these terms, It is pro-
posed, will be assured by the adoption of a
standard vocabulary clearly defined by physi-
cal tests.
"' The industry is convinced that such defi-
nite word pictures on the outside of the can
will enable the housewife to buy canned foods
with more complete knowledge than would
be furnished by an 'A-B-O' grade symbol
and also with more knowledge of the prod-
uct inside the can."
In order to cooperate with the Industry,
the administration has extended the time for
making a rel.Port to tie President from the
original period of 00 days by giving the com-
mittee an additional 380 days.


Number of Employees in Industry
Already Has Increased 33 %
Over Previous Year

Approval of a Code of fair competition for
the $5.000.000 marine .lulpment industry has
been announced by the National Recovery
Administrator. The Code becomes effective
September 6.
Approval was conditioned, however, upon
the following provisos: That provisions of
article X. Insofar as they prescribe a wait-
ing period between the fling with the Code
Authority and the effective date of revised
price lists or revised terms and conditions
of sale, are stayed ; that provisions of article
X, section 5, be stayed pending further
order; that operation of all the provisions
of the Code be stayed as to all parties sub-
ject thereto insofar as they may apply to
the products of the gray iron foundry in-
dustry, the nonferrous foundry industry, and
the electrical manufacturing industry, dur-
ing a period of 60 days, during which time
the Code Authorities of the latter and the
marine equipment industries shall seek
through conferences to adjust their differ-
ences regarding the definition of this Code.
In 1933 the Administrator reported to Pres-
Ident Roosevelt, the industry, which com-
prises approximately 50 firms, employed
about 1,000 people. Since adoption of the 40-
hour week, as provided in the Code, employ-
ment had increased to 1,500 persons in July
1934, a gain of approximately 83 percent.
Managerial employees are exempted from
the 40-hour maximum week. During sea-

"Break and Take"


Defined
An official Interpretation of the "break and
take" or "pick and draw" packages of con-
fectionery, prohibited since August 1 under
the Wholesale Confectionery Industry Coda
has been announced by the NRA.
The interpretation follows:
"Any merchandise which is prepared or
comblued for sale or distribution to the ulti-
mate consumer through any method Involy-
ing lottery or an element of chance, such Al
the color-center method, the different price
within the wrapper method, the punch-board
method, the push-card method, the method
whereby letters on the wrapper explain the
particular name of the article, is merchandise
of a Like character serving the same purpose
as the type of merchandise commonly re-
ferred to as "break and take", "pick", and
" draw ", and the sale or distribution thereof
is prohibited by the provision of rule 21 of
article VIII, of the Code of Fair Competition
for the Wholesale Confectioners Trade."

Reappointment of three members of the
National Sheltered Workshops Committee for
a 6-month term has been announced by the
National Recovery Administration. They
are Col. John N. Smith, Jr., director of the
Institute for Crippled and Disabled, New
York; Edward Hochhauser, president of
Altro Workshops, New York; and Rev. John
SO'Grady, secretary of the National Confer-
enee of Catholic Charities, Washington.
SThese three were appointed In May for a 3-
month term.
The other members of the committee, ap-
lpointed at the same time for original 6-mouth
terms, are Oscar M. Sullivan, president of
the National Rehabillitation Association, St.
Paul; Oliver A. Friedman, director of'the
Milwaukee Goodwill Industries; and Peter J.
Salmon, secretary of the Industrial Home
for the Blind, New York.
On March 3 the National Recovery Ad-
ministrator granted "sheltered workshops"
(charitable institutions conducted not for
r profit but to provide remunerative employ-
ment for physically, mentally, or socially
handicapped workers) conditional exemption
from Codes of fair competition. Sub-
Bequently, on May 11, the National Sheltered
Workshop Committee was appointed to "' pro-
vide for the design and use of an appropriate
insignia" and administer the terms of a
pledge to be signed as a condition of ex-
emPtion from the Codes. Since then, the
committee has been occupied with organiza-
tion, collecting statistics of the operations
of such workshops, and drafting special NRA
Insignia for their use.
Completed questionnaires and signed
pledges have been received from 85 "sheltered
workshops." In these institutions there are
S7,0.75 handicapped workers employed, 4.653
of whom are paid an aggregate weekly wage
.of $563.42. The other 2,381 workers are in
Institutions for the socially handicapped and
are not paid wages but are gihen training
and maintenance.

Recent Trend in theRubber Tire Manufacturing Industr


Statistical Charts from
Division of Research
and Planning

The chart "Recent Trend in the
Rubber Tire Manufacturing Indus-
try", in the adjoining columns is a
valuable index to production, employ-
ment, wages, hours, stocks, and ship-
ments, and prices.
Each week there appears in the
Blue Eagle a similar chart touching
upon different phases of the work of
the National Recovery Administration.
The chart presented on trends in
the Rubber Tire Manufacturing Indus-
try is of special interest on account of
its indication of the current situation
in the industry. It is also an excellent
illustration of the work of a well-
organized industrial association in the
development of an adequate statistical
program for the purpose of revealing
the current economic movements in
the industry. It is the sort of sta-
tistical data which meets the needs of
a Code Authority in dealing with eco-
nomic problems arising under the
Code and at the same time serves
to give the Division of Economic Re-
search and Planning as well as the
Administrator of NRA the necessary
background information required for
an intelligent consideration of prob-
lems and proposals arising out of
Code administration.

Chart Prepared Exclusively for the Blue Eagle by the Statistical Section of the Division of Research and Planning of NRA


The basic trend in the rubber tire manufacturing industry may be analyzed most readily by means of indexes for th.i.
four operating items shown in the central portion o7 the chart. The production index is a composite of the production.'
of pneumatic casings, inner tube, and solid or cushion tires, expressed in terms of the leaverage for 1929. These data.
are currently collected by the Rubber Manufacturers' Association; they have been adjusted to the Census of Manufac.?
tures and expressed as aggregates of equivalent units (the equivalent units being one casing seven tubes, and one-fourt
solid) before reduction to index number form. Employment is represented by the Bureau of Labor Statistics Index, ali

Act Against Style

Pirates
Style pirates operating In the millinery
and dress trimmuing braid and textile in-
dustry hereafter are to be considered sub-
ject to the penn ties prescribed for violations
of a Code -.f f:tr competition. The National
Recovery Amimmistration has announced Its
approval of a plan of procedure for the reg
istration of style patterns, whereby the copy-
ing and offering for sale of any style pattern
or style design originated ly another manu-
facturer, within 6 months of the date of
registry with the Millinery and Dress Trim-


mings Braid and Textile Association, with
the effect of injuring the industry or cus-
tomers or consumers, shall be an unfair trade
practice and prohibited.
The plan of procedure provides for the fil-
ine of a sample of the design, and the register-
ing of the name and address of the owner.
The executive secretary of the association
will then conduct an Investigation to deter-
mine whether the applicant is entitled to
registration.
In the.event the applicant is not satisfied
with the findings of the secretary, he will
be given opportunity to bring his case before
a board of arbitration of three members, one
representing the Code Authority, one repre-
senting the applicant, and the third rO be the
administration member of the authority. The
decision of the board must be reached within
7 days.

of section 9 (c) of the N.I.R.A. pro-
hibiting the production or with-
drawal from storage of oil in excess
of amounts allowed under State laws
and to enjoin the enforcement of the
Petroleum Code Issued pursuant to
said act, the petroleum administra-
tor is not a necessary party, since
he dues not do or threaten to do the
acts complained of. He would, how-
ever, be a proper party if within the
court's jurisdiction.
Oil production is either mining or
manufacturing, neither of which is
ordinarily interstate commerce. But
under peculiar circumstances, such
as here exist, oil production may so
burden such commerce as to justify
congressional regulation. The regu-
lation of production by the State is
assumed to be valid, and the Federal
action is designed to aid tile State
action. Such cooperating is desir-
able. Nor is there any denial of due
process under the fifth amendment,
since the State action has already
been upheld by the courts ,tiilnder the
fourteenth amendment.

Retail Trade.-Amendments approved Au-
gust 23, 1934, makes combination sales of mer-
chandise and the sale of merchandise upon
a condition Involving the element of chance
violations of the Code. The prohibition of
combination or group sales Is an addition to
the Code's article on loss limitation and pro-
vides that "in group offerings or sales of
merchandise the selling price of the group
shall not be less than the sum of the mini-
mum selling prices of the individual items of
the groups", as determined In accordance
with provisions already in the Code. It Is
further stipulated that "In group offerings
or sales of merchandise, where the selling
price of one or more items of the group
Is indicated, the price indicated for each
item or Items, expressly or by inference,
shall not be less than the minimum price
of each Item or items", as determined in
accordance with article VIII, sections 1 and
2. The amendment provides, however, that
the added section shall not be construed
to apply to the use of bona-fide preml-
ums. The "group-offering" section does
not apply to the sale of drugs, medicine,
cosmetics, toilet preparations, drug sundries,
or allied items" described In the supplemental
provisions of the Code applicable to retail
drug establishments. The use of a lottery
or similar element of chance as a sales-pro-
motion device is prohibited by the addition
of a new subsection which provides that "no
retailer shall sell or offer for sale any mer-
chandise upon a condition which involves a
lottery, gamble, or element of chance, similar
to what Is commonly known as a 'Suit Club
Plan'; provided, however, that this subsec-
tion shall not apply to nonprofit organizations
not definitely constituted to carry on retail
trade." Another of the amendments pro-
vides for the temporary reduction of store
hours for a period not to exceed 3 'consecu-
tive' months during the year, but no em-
ployee's weekly wages shall be reduced dur-
ing such period on account of such reduction
of store hours." The Code Is also amended
to exempt professional persons, watchmen,
guards and store detectives, outside salesmen,
and outside collectors from the maximum
hours of labor, but watchmen and guards
shall not work more than 56 hours in any
1 week nor more than 13 days in any 14-
day period. The provisions of the Code re-
garding the limitation upon the number of
persons working unrestricted hours was cor-
rected so that the total number of persons
who will be permitted to work unrestricted
hours shall not exceed a ratio to be computed
on the average number of employees during
the preceding 12 months.
Savings, Building and Loan Associations.-
Amendment approved August 24, 1934, au-
thorizes the Code Authority to incur reason-
able expenses in administering the provisions
of the Code and to submit a budget and
method of assessment upon which funds shall
be contributed by associations subject to the
Code. Such assessments are made manda-
tory by this amendment.
Saw and Steel Products Manufacturing In-
dustry.-Modification approved August 24,
1934, permits the Code Authority to incur
reasonable expenses in administering the pro-
visions of the Code and to submit a budget
and method of assessment upon which funds
shall be contributed by members of the in-
dustry. Such assessments are made manda-
tory by this amendment.
Steel Casting Induslry.-Amendments ap-
proved August 24, 1934, provides that no
agency or subdivision shall sell, or offer to
sell, any product at a price lower than the
price filed by a member of such agency or
subdivision; and for the addition of several
unfair trade practices to schedule D of the
approved Code relating only to miscellaneous
castings.
Wall Paper Manufacturing Industry.-
Amendment approved August 24, 1934, per-
mits members of the industry to sell products
below cost for the purpose of meeting com-
petitive prices, which competitive prices
themselves do not violate the provision of
the Code prohibiting the sale below cost.
