visions for Descriptive Labeling
I>Be Incorporated in Canners
Industry Code

T executive committee of the Food and
grocery Chain Stores of America, Inc., has
reommended that provisions for quality
8arlabeling, with brief modifying descrip-
, be incorporated in the Canning ludus-
The committee also recommended that the
boilesale and Retail Food and Grocery
fade Codes be amended to forbid distribu-
l. 'of any goods not labeled as to grade.
recommendingg the use of the grade sys-
.'of labeling the committee rejected the
failed "descriptive" type of labeling
6ah had been urged by a committee of
Rraministration officials regarded the ac-
oi" of the chain" stores as particularly
cant and a long step forward in safe-
iardlng the consumer. The association in-
tdies practically all of the grocery chain
organizations of the country except the
tf Atlantic & Pacific Tea Co., which is
ow designing grade labels for its new pack.
Bh group represented by the association
patrols more than 22,000 retail food outlets.
i'_Briefly summarized, the committee's recom-
indations are as follows:
:"!(l) Adoption of the standards for grades
socially promulgated by the United States
IDepartment of Agriculture for tomatoes,
'cream-style corn, whole-grain corn, peas,
map-beans, and grapefruit. (The five vege-
isble .items named represent approximately
al the pack of all canned vegetables.)
('2) The four grades of each of these prod-
bcta should be designated by the terms
Lcey.", "Choice", Standard", and "Sub-
Oi(3)i One of these terms designating the
gade should appear prominently on every
lahl ,ogether with a "key" to these grad-
Bterm -which will make clear to the con-
er.rthe relative quality of each of these
Ij'(4) In addition, the size of the peas and
map beans should be stated on the label and
t case of grapefruit the legend, "Packed
ouF Added Sugar" should appear on the
where applicable.
(5) The President should appoint a per-
it committee to continuously consider
teliwhole problem of standards and labels.
cbs 'committee would be responsible for
Fommendiig that additional products be
ded to the six named, as satisfactory stand-
fls o such products may be developed.
a'urther rules are also proposed forbidding
the.use of the words "fancy ", "choice ", etc.,
[i's label except as referring to the recog-
rii grade of the contents of the can.

Joint Conference

Outlines N.L.R.B.

Compliance Policy
Agreement Covers Procedure in
Special Cases When Joint
Meetings Will Be Held

A joint statement of policy governing com-
pliance with decisions of the National Labor
Relations Board, which has been in effect
for some time,-has been made public by that
Board and the National Recovery Adminis-
It outlines procedure in cases where the
National Labor Relations Board has found a
violation of section 7 (a) or where the em-
ployer desires to regain the right. to use NRA
The agreement covers normal cases. In
others, where deviation from the procedure
is necessary, joint conferences will be held.
The text of the statement follows:
1. In the normal case where the National
Labor Relations Board finds a violation of
section 7 (a) and the company, within the
time allotted to it by such Board, has not
made such restitution, If any, as such Board
has recommended, the NRA Compliance Divi-
sion, upon submission of such Board's de-
cision and of the file, will without delay
remove the employer's right to fly the Blue
Eagle or other NRA insignia and will notify
the National Labor Relations Board accord-
2. In the normal case,' if, after the em-
ployer's Blue Eagle or other NRA insignia
has been removed because of violation of
section 7 (a), the employer petitions for
restoration thereof, the petition will be re-
ferred to the National Labor Relations Board
for investigation and for a recommendation
to the NRA Compliance Division as to the
terms upon which restoration should be
granted. In the normal case this recommen-
dation will be followed.
3. Whenever for any reason the NRA Com-
pliance Division believes that in a particular
case there is reason not to follow the pro-
cedure outlined above, a joint conference will
be arranged between the Compliance Division
and the National Labor Relations Board for
a discussion of the matter It being under-
stood that so long as the responsibility for
the removal of the Blue Eagle or other NRA
Insignia remains with the Compliance Divi-
sion ultimate discretion with respect to its
removal and restoration must remain with
such division.

Window Glass

Code Approved
The National Industrial Recovery Board
has approved a Code of fair competition for
the window glass manufacturing industry,
to become effective December 3.-
The industry is defined as the manufac-'
ture and sale of primary window glass."
Three of Its 17 members do about 73 percent
of its business, which totaled $10,000,000 in
1931. Estimated employment increased from
3,000 early in 1933 to 4,500 later in the year.
The Code's hour provisions are expected to
restore employment to the 1929 level of 5,000.
The Code provides basic minimum wages
of 40 cents per hour in the North and 35
cents per hour In the South, and a basic
maximum working period of 72 hours every
14 days.
Working time is limited to 6 days of any
week and 8 hours in any 24-hour period.
Six hours weekly overtime is permitted In
certain, cases at one and one-half the regular
wage rate. Employees engaged In continu-
ous processes may work 84 hours in any 14-
day period, and 6 hours In any 24, with pro-
vision for 6 hours' overtime in a 24"hour
period to meet the demands of shift rotation
or necessary replacement of absent workmen.
Clerica-l and office employees have a mini-
mum wage of $15 weekly and a basic maxi-
mum work week of 40 hours.
Each member of the industry who con-
tributes to support of the Code is to have
one representative on the Code Authority.
The Code provides for open-price filing and
forbids destructive price cutting. It empow-
ers the National Industrial Recovery Board
to determine whether an emergency exists
and, In event of an emergency4 to set stated
minimum prices on specified products.
Standard grades of common window glass
are defined, with the requirement that "no
window glass of lower grade shall be sold
or offered for sale by any member of the

Linen Trade Has

A supplementary Code of fair competition
for the linen importing trade has been ap-
proved by the National Industrial Recovery
Board, to become effective December 2.
Supplemental to the Code for the Import-
ing trade, the divisional Code adopts the
basic Code's labor provisions, but prescribes
administration and trade-practice provisions
applicable to the division.
It will be administered by a 7-member Di-
visional Code Authority. This will include
3 "general members" to represent the Indus-
try at large, 1 nonassociation member, 1 to
.represent fancy linen importers, 1 for the
staple linen members, and 1 for the' apparel
linen importers.
Trade-practice rules contain a stipulation
that articles cannot be marked "linen",
"pure linen ", or "all linen" unless the ac-
tual linen content of the basic-fabric is 95
percent or over. The exact percentage must
be indicated on items with less than 95 per-
cent linen.
Other trade-practice regulations include a
Prohibition of consignment selling except on
fancy linen units valued at $25 or more, a
prohibition of lot sales to curb the practice
of passing obsolete merchandise through
combination sales, and a maximum terms of
sale provision specifying 3 percent discount
for payments in 10 days, with an option of
end-of-month dating, and 2 percent for longer
dating not to exceed 70 days.

"Scrip" Provisions

of Retail Codes

Provisions of various retail Codes which
prohibit the acceptance of "scrip" In pay-
ment for goods have been stayed until Janu-
ary 6, 1935, under an order announced by
the National Industrial Recovery Board.
The stay was ordered to permit additional
time in which the National Industrial Recov-
ery Board may study a report submitted on
October 22 by a special committee which in-
vestigated so-called company stores and
the scrip system of wage payments generally.
'In its report the special committee sub-
mitted recommendations relating specifically
to, article IX, section 4, of the Retail Code
as approved on October 21, 1933, which would
eliminate that article and substitute the fol-
lowing provisions:
"No company store or retail store shall
collect offset in the form of scrip, book
credit, or otherwise against the wages of
any person other than its own employees
engaged exclusively in the retail trade an
amount for merchandise sold by said store
in excess of 25 percent of such pay earned
in any pay period.
"No store shall purchase or receive or
accept for cash or consideration in trade or
In payment of indebtedness any scrip at less
than its par or face value."

pass the requisite legislation and to opeA:"

vestigatioi, required a shortening of the wor4--"-
hours in the cotton garment industry from 4'kC
to 36, effective December L ,
The committee, composed of Judge Joseph,
N. Ulman, of Baltimore, chairman; Fran2 |
Tannenbaum, author and economist; and W''.
Jett Lauck, statistician, found that the prisoU
labor compact "has not solved the problem.
of prison labor and will not 'solve it perma'
nently and constructively ", but "' is an india.
pensable plan for the real solution of thieiS
problem of prison labor." .
The compact is an agreement between more;""
than a score of States operating prison fac-'-1
stories and the NRA for production of good8s',,
on a basis that should not put them onlthe-'
market at a price lower than the productsi0fA"
private industry. The prison goods are giveni.-'
a distinct NRA label. "
The committee urged that until such tinie"':'
as the system it suggested is brought about, -:,
the Recovery Board "use its good officesit'.
through the President and the Federal lmer---
gency Relief Administration to effect the pur-';
chase from the prisons of prison-made gar
mental, or to utilize the labor now employed."
on prison-made garments to make such other
garments as the Federal Emergency ,el&i
Administration may deem preferable." "..
"The purchase of these garments by thei',
F. B. R. A. from athe State prisons", it con-,.":
tinued, "should be scheduled on a declining -":'P.
scale, and should cease at the end of 2 years.'"*.
The committee also recommended that.'::.'
prison-made garments be barred in the public.:.
market by withdrawal of the NRA label now'i
used or by its modification to read prison--i
made." Lapse of a 15-day period after pub,':'
location of the report was recommended be-lii,,
fore F. E. R. A. should take over prison-made -,
clothing. .A
Another point was that the prison labor.,.:
authority should be continued and used as
the agency to centralize the proposed pro-','
gram, and that NRA be empowered by EBx-.;.
ecutive order to require an agreement be-
tween the prison labor authority and the' ... ,:
various Code Authorities' in every instance .i...
that prison industries make a change in price..:
Arbitration was provided for in case of non...
agreement.. .
A quota system limiting prison production .o
for the open market to the volume of output 'Il|
at the time the prison compact came into ex- ,-'
distance was advocated, and that all State, ".
county, and city institutions now outside the...."-'
compact be brought into the new program. .,'
"The only true solution of the prison-labor .".
problem ", said the committee in the section :*i",
of the report devoted to findings, is one that ""!"4
will effectually remove the products of prison"
labor from the ordinary channels of competi-':
rive trade and commerce. This means the .I
State use system. * '
"The present and potential competition of
prison industry with the cotton garment in-
dustry has created a special and acute prob- ':
lem that calls for immediate attention and .I
relief." '
,The committee blamed this condition on -
over expansion of the cotton garment indus- '.*
try, partially caused by expectations that the .:
Hawes-Cooper Act would greatly curb prison'
output. ,
Declaring that prison competition even as a
now reduced "actually endangers the life of
the Cotton Garment Code", the committee
said .7-
"The withdrawal of that industry from its .%
own Code would be a major disaster to labor, -" .
spelling a large increase of unemployment'.
and a return to sweatshop conditions that
were a dlsgrnce to American industry. This t
must be avoided at almost any cost." -
Temporary increase of prison idleness and
a higher cost of prison operation was de- .
scribed as "a price worth paying" for re- .
habilitation of the cotton garment industry .-.
so long as the higher costs become part o f
a comprehensive plan for ultimate, realistic .'
solution of the whole prison labor problem. '
The committee spent a month hearing testi- .
mony and reviewing material from an enor- :
mous list of witnesses, representing industry,
organized labor, and the prisons. ."

No. 67-38

? phrase "engaged in the business of as used
l-',in article II, section 9, of the Code of lair
,"'.' competition for the fertilizer industry?
'"-. INTERPRETATION. -The phrase "en-
S-:gaged in the business of" as used in section

i*T>individual, partnership, corporation, or other
41S'form of enterprise, whose time, attention,
flabor, and effort are occupied and directed in

'1--aes0 of livelihood or profit. Although such
^ agent'snt'" sole occupation or employment
1.'-heed not be that of distributing the above-
.'mentioned products, he is not "engaged in
i. the business of" unless he does devote his
". attention, time, effort, and labor to the dis-
(5.-trlbution of such products not as a casual,
Er*. occasional, or sporadic matter but regu-
.I-..larly and continuously during each fertilizer

s' the particular facts and circumstances In
a|.. order to reach any conclusion to whether the
S..-7 "agent." is "engaged in the business of"
--. as used in article II, section 9
.;:. .The following factors would tend to sup.
iH"port a conclusion that in a particular case a
tAF : particular "agent" is in fact "engaged In
-.. the business", and at least one of such fac-
i' tors would seem to be essential to such
1. A regular place of business, such as,
for instance, a store, office, or commercial

Soap and Glycerine Manufac-
turing Industry
No. 83-39
FACTS.-In checking employment records,
some Instances are found where employees
worked more than the maximum number of
hours permitted by the Code of fair competi-
tion for the soap and glycerine manufactur-
ing industry. All of them were paid Code
wages, including overtime.
QUESTION.-If an employee -has worked
more than the maximum hours permitted by
the Code, is it necessary to lay him off at a
later date so as to adjust the hours down
to the Code maximum?
ANSWER.-Employees whose hours are
permitted to be averaged, and who may have
worked more than 40 hours in I week, must
at some time within the averaging period
Itork fewer hours so that the average for
the period does not exceed 40 hours per week.
A "lay off" is not necessary if a temporary
shortening of weekly hours will accomplish
the purpose.
As to those employees whose hours are
not permitted to be averaged, the interpre-
tation Is not applicable.
Order No. 83-21 Is hereby rescinded.

Lowest Reasonable Fuel

Costs Disapproved in 3

New York Counties
Disapproval of lowest reasonable fuel cost
petitions submitted by divisional Code Au-
thority No. 3 for the New York counties of
Greene, Ulster, and Monroe has been an-
nounced by the special committee on lowest
reasonable costs in the retail solid fuel In.
The committee's disapproval was based on
lack of sufficient evidence of an emergency
existing in the industry in each area. How-
ever, additional evidence may be submitted
to the committee for further consideration.
Under the Retail Solid Fuel Code, divi-
sional Code Authorities are empowered to
determine the existence of an emergency in
n trade area after all industry members and
other interested parties have been given suffi-
cient notice of public- hearings to determine
the emergency and secure representative cost
C8'mplete transcripts of the hearings and
other necessary data are forwarded for re-
view to the Na.tional Recovery Administra-
tion in Washington, where the special com-
mittee has authority to approve, disapprove,
or modify the findings nf the divisional Code

Service Trades

NRA Board Announces Fair Trade
Practices for Shoe Reguilding
Industry in Washington, Ind. I

The National Industrial Recovery Board :
has announced approval of a Code of fair q
trade practices for the shoe rebuilding trade
in Washington, Ind. This is the first local.:
Code to be approved since the President .
Executive order of May 26, 1934, suspending
the Nation-wide application of the trade.
practice rules of the service trades Code
until further orders.
That Executive order provides that 85 per .
cent of the members of any service trade In 1
any local area may apply for local fair. .
trade-practice schedules which Would, U pon
approval by the NRA, become binding upon
the entire trade in that district.
This local Code of fair trade practices, ap-
proved in the form adopted by more than'
85 percent of the Washington, Ind., trade,
contains no provisions relating to cost-recov.
ery, price filing, or any other rule which
might tend to fix minimum retail prices, '
bec-ause they did not consider such proni.
sions necessary to protect their interests.
It incorporates the provisions of the Shoe
Rebuilding Trade Code which are now ef.
fective nationally, and which constitute a
Code of labor provisions, and adds a ached.
ule of trade rules which will become effective
December 10 on all members of the shoe '
rebuilding trade in the Indiana city.
The labor provisions applicable to Wash-.
tngton, Ind., set a basic workweek of 48
hours at minimum wages of $15 for shoe
rebuilders, $6 a week and gratuities for
bootblacks, and $13.50 a week for other em-
ployees. Part-time workers must receive at
least 50 cents an hour. No person under 16
years of age may be employed as a bootblackJ
and no one under 17 years in any other'
capacity. I-
One feature of the local Code-is a provi-.
sion regulating hours of shop operation. No
retail outlet of the trade may operate on
Sunday or on any national. State, or local
holiday, nor more than 12 hours a day on
week days, north more than 16 hours on Satur.
day or on the day before a holiday. If any
member of the trade observes another day
than Sunday as the Sabbath and closes ha i
shop that day, he may operate on Sunday,
subject to State and local laws and ordi.
nuances. These restrictions on hours of shop
operation do not apply to shoe-shine service.
Outlets in department stores may elect to
remain open such hours as the store as a
whole operates, and other members of the
trade may operate the same hours.
The hours of store operation are not rig-
Idly fixed, but broadly restricted as to daily
spread. The limits are intended to permit
adequate service to the public and efficient
shop operation, but they will prevent exsces-
sively long shop hours, which the trade has
found unprofitable and the source of bitter
trade disputes and the primary cause of
many labor violations.
Another section of the local Code prohibits..
,any ".attempt to secure an additional charge :I
for' work performed other than that actually.:-
authorized by the customer."
Misleading advertising is forbidden, as are
defamation and disparagement of competl-d
tors, misleading guarantees, and advertising.'
regular prices as "special." Premiums may:
not be used If they involve lottery, commer-:
cial bribery, or fraud. '

Aviation Industry Gets;

Wage Extension
Two extensions, one for 46 days to permit..
members not alrh'eady registered to comply'..I
with registration requirements, and another:.
delaying until February 1, 1935, the time the':
Code Authority shall have to submit for NBA
approval a proposal for adjustment of wages'
above the minimum, has been granted theL..
commercial aviation industry.
The commercial aviation industry is coM-.
posed of a large number of relatively small'
enterprises and is now engaged in the proceSs.
of registration of its membership prior to the!
election of a permanent Code Authority. The'
proposal for the adjustment of wages above.
the minimum was held to be a subject which
should be considered by the permanent Code'
Authority rather than by the temporary if
earning body now functioning.
The Code provides that every member of,
the industry, within 60 days after the.effec'.:
tire date of the Code, or within 10 days after
becoming a member of the industry and an-
nually thereafter, shall register with 1the a-.-'
tional Code Authority his nantle, together.'
with the nature of his business operations
and such other information as may be re-
quired by the National (C'ode Authority. The"
extension just granted gives members uiint
December 26 to register with the Code
The minimum wage rates as set forth il-the-
Cbde provide- for $15 per week in centers of
more than 50,000 population or in the iMe_':
diate trade area thereof, and $13 per week i
places of 50,000 population or less. ..

S Chart Prepared Exclusively for the Blue Eagle by the Research and Planning Division

T .. he canning and preserving industries cover a large number of Code Industries whose
products include fish, mayonnaise, preserves, dried fruits, condiments, horseradish, pickles,
and miscellaneous canned and preserved products. The industries represented are all
"consumer-goods" industries, and are characterized by severe seasonal contraction and
The basic trend in the canning and preserving industries can be most easily followed
by observing the behavior of the four series in the central portion of the chart. These
four operating indexes are expressed as percentages of their respective averages In 1929.
The number employed is represented by the Bureau of Labor Statistics Index adjusted
:.. .(by NRA) to fit the 1933 totals for the Industry, recently released by the Bureau of
S Comparing identical months of 1934 and 1933, factory pay rolls have In every case
.. been higher this year. Stated In another way the total purchasing power of laborers in
' the canning and preserving industries in either September or October of this year, was
the largest for any similar months since 1930. Real purchasing power, which would allow
for a 20 percent decline in the cost of living since 1929, was approximately the same in
October 1934, as in October 1929.
The number of employed persons was consistently larger in 1934 than the correspond-
, Ing months of a year ago until September and October, When the comparison favored
1933, In which year one of the largest seasonal spurts in recent years took place. It
should be noted, however, that in 1934 there were two peak months, i. e.. August and
. September, whereas In previous years September was the only peak. Average employ-
ment during the last 3 months has been greater than the 3 corresponding months in any
of the years shown with the exception of 1930.
The index of man-hours is the best available estimate of current activity in the In-
Sdustrics as. a whole. This index has been derived by multiplying the index of the number
employed by the average hours worked per week. The number of man-hours (total hours

worked) in the first 9 months of 1934 exceeded those of 1933, and suggest that the analS
production index for 1934 may equal or exceed that of 1931. It should be borne in mind,:
however, that the index of production (coustructed by NRA from figures compiled by the.
Natiounil Canners Association, the Western Cnnner and Packer, and the Bureau of the':
Census) covers the output of Alaska and Hawaii, as well as that of the United StateV".
whereas the labor indexes are based upon a one-third sample taken wholly within .:e
United States. The spread between the niau-hours and the employment index reflects;
the efforts to share the work. ''
A general impression of the trend of hours and wages may be obtained by looking g1
at the three series in the upper portion of the chart. The average hourly wage has ha
an upward trend since September 1932, while the trend of average hours has been dow-a.
ward since that rime. The average hours worked per week are largely influenced by -H,
seasonal conditions in the industry, and tend to be reflected in the average weekly wage.:
The average weekly wage drifted downward from over $20 per week in May 1929, to.f
little over $10 per week in July 1933. Since the advent of the National Recovery Admi1
istration there has been a considerable percentage increase in the average weekly ears
Wings notwithstanding a reduction in the average hours per man. It is advisable when V90,.
pariug the monthly items to compare similar months, because of the strong seaso0i
tendencies in the canning and preserving industries. One peculiarity of this series is tle.,
tendency for the average weekly wage to be larger in slack seasons, probably because 0.
the larger proportion of skilled workers.
Price series, constructed from Bureau of Labor Statistics data, for three iinportru;i'.
subdivisions of this group of industries are shown in the lower portion of the chart. 'b
represent the wholesale prices of canned vegetables, fruits, and salmon, aud all three see..N
to have passed bottom sometime In 1932. Since then all three have risen considerabli:i..,

-The changing relations between the indexes illustrate the instability of relative prilc.S\
even within a group of rather closely related products. ."A.
