ithe hat-making industry under the Code is
:50 cents an hour, the minimuni hourly rate,

the resale values of second-hand equipment,
approved under the Code for the road ma-
iehinery manufacturing industry, has been ap-
proved by the National Industrial Recovery'
Board. The amendment will permit such,
;equipment to be bought at other prices and

:' The amendment is effective immediately,

?Actnring industry, removing limitation as to

ate,' removes nonferrous hot-water tanks
aom the definition of that industry.
An amendment to the Code for the coffee
industry has been approved requiring the
Code Authority, within 3 months, to submit
standards for safety and health for em-
ployees during working hours, such standards
being conducive to their general welfare
while not burdensome to the industry. On
approval by the NRA, such standards will be-
come binding on all members of the industry.
The amendment becomes effective May 1,
unless good cause to the contrary is shown.
Fair Pactices Provisions Are Clar-
ified to Facilitate
Changes effected by approval of an amend-
ment revising provisions of the fair-practices
article of the "Hosiery Code are designed to
facilitate Code enforcement and to preclude
inequities. The amendment effected no prac-
tical changes in the Code, though 16 sections
and 3 subsections are deleted and new ones
The principal revision concerned the sell-
ing-below-cost provision (art. VIII, sec. 4).
This will require all close-oits of discon-

to Study Dress
A commission of three to study a long-
standing controversy between the dress man-
ufacturing and the cotton garment industries
over certain classifications affecting wage
rates has been announced by the National
Members of the new commission are: Leon
C. Marshall, executive secretary of the Na-
tional Industrial Recover& Board; Leon
Henderson, the Board's economic advisor,
and Prentiss L. Coonley, Code adminis-
tration director. Mr. Marshall will serve as
The new commission has been directed to

industries over classification of their prod-
ucts and to report to the Board. A hearing

Stay Granted Floor and
Wall Clay Tile
An order staying for 60 days sections B and
C of paragraph 1, article XII, of the Floor
and Wall Clay Tile Manufacturing Industry
Code, defining wholesalers and merchant tile
contractors, has been approved by the Na-
tional Industrial Recovery Board.
In its request for a stay, the Code Authority
for the floor and wall clay tile manufacturing
industry stated that these sections contain
certain restrictl've features with respect to
the disposition of tile by dealers, and it was
desirous of "loosening" them. It was felt
by the Code Authority that the merchant tile
contractors and wholesalers would be better
able to handle competitive situations if they
were allowed some freedom in the handling
The stay is effective until June 5, 1935.
of Small Firms
Require "Nuisance" Contribution Elimination,.
Permit Reduction in Rates and Extend
Small Town Exemption
The National Recovery Administration has announced new rules regarding
contributions from industry to the costs of code administration designed to
relieve small firms of an inequitable burden, lessen multiple assessments, simplify ;
collections and permit the rate of contribution to be reduced at any time.
One Administrative Order, No. X-139, re-
quires that budgets and bases of contribution
submitted hereafter must contain "recom-
mendations for reasonable classifications de-
signed to eliminate nuisance contributions"
(those very small in amount) "and for ex-
emptions designed to avoid inequitable con-
tributions on articles which are not marketed
This order is designed to provide a mini-
mum measured in sales volume, number of
employees, or some other equitable criterion
below which no contribution will be asked.
It Is also intended to prevent multiple assess-
ments on a product which Is handled for
processing and sold as a part of some other
For Used Car Sale
Approval of a manual of operations, pro-
vided for by the Automobile Dealers' Code,
for use by the National Automobile Dealers
Association' in the compilation, publication,
and distribution of the official used-car
guide, which establishes trade-in values for
used motor vehicles, has been 'announced by
the National Industrial Recovery Board.
In the approval order, the Board found
that the manual of operations does not
permit uniform deductions or additions
which are designed to bring about arbitrary
uniformity in the fair market value of used
The manual outlines procedure for the
establishment of trading areas to send pe-
riodical used car sales reports to the central
office for tabulation; methods of handling
such reports in the Coding Department of
the NADA and setting up the used-car prices
The official guide is an identification book-
let, containing a detailed description of all
active used passenger and commercial motor
vehicles of three-quarters, ton. and less ca-
pacity that have been manufactured for the
approximate period, of the past 7 years; and
a price section booklet containing the fair
Market values and net maximum allowances
as established in accordance with the Code.
It is to be revised every 30 days.
Steel Package Code
The Code of fair competition for the steel
package industry has been amended to in-
corporate a provision whereby members of
the industry are prohibited from quoting
prices or offering to sell on terms inconsist-
ent with their own open diled prices.
Approval was conditional, however, on the-
fact'that provisions of article V, paragraph
A, insofar as it provides for a 10-day filed
price waiting period, be stayed.
Amendment to Cork
The National Industrial Recovery Board'
has announced approval of an amendment to
the Code of fair competition for the cork in-
dustry, designed to make the Code conform.
to the standards requirement for child la-
bor and hazardous occupations in the in-
dustry; and carrying the usual mandatory
clauses for the basis of contribution by
members of the industry to the expenses of
Suggestions or objections, to' the approved
amendment must be filed before May 3, 1935.
It requires all orders approving budgets 'A
after April 30 to Include such classifications
and exemptions and gives Code Authorities- 2
operating under-budgets not now containing -'1
such safeguards until May 15 to submit rec- .
ommendatlons for the desired changes, to take -.
effect with the first contributions due after --v
May 31. If such recommendations are not' .'."
forthcoming by May 15 the order states that -
such classifications and exemptions "will be
established by the National Industrial Recov-
ery Board after due consideration, of all rele-. ..
Until classifications eliminating nuisance i
contributions have been established in Code "
budgets and bases of contributions, another
Administrative Order, No. X-A40, afinounced '..
at the same time, will protect retailers 'from,*,
liability for multiple assessments. That or- .'-
der exempts any establishment whose princi- "
pa'l line of business measured by dollar volume.- i
is retail distribution from contributing to the ..
Code budget of any nonretall trade or indus- -':
try into which a. minor part of its business'. -'i
falls, provided such minor line does jaot "re-.,
quire the-full-time services of two or more :.S
employees. It is effective until nuisance con.
tributions have been eliminated in the minor- *
line Code budgets. ::
A third order, X-72-2, extends the exemp- -"
tion from Code contributions which had pre- :k
viously been granted retail and local service '
trade establishments in towns under 2,500 .
population. If the principal business of such .;'
establishments is in.,an exempted retail or -,
local service trade, all departments of the'
business are exempted from any Code assess- i
ment, even though that part of the business ..
which is In an unexempted industry or trade '.
can easily be segregated. The previous ex- -
emption applied only in cases where the busi- i
ness in the unexempted line could not be ,I
readily segregated. .
The fourth announcement of policy, office
memorandum 351, permits any Code Author- ;'
ity to reduce the rate of assessments previ- ?L
ously approved or to suspend collections en-- '
tirely without notice to anyone except the
NRA. Such reduction or suspension of col- ''.',
elections, however, must be applied uniformly
throughout the industry and must be sub-
mitted to NRA. Requested changes in rates
of collection become effective if the NRA ap-
proves or falls to disapprove in 10 days. .
Public Safety Amend-
ment to Fireworks
Manufacturers of fireworks, in the interest. *
of greater public safety, will be required to
limit the size of "salutes" and "firecrackers"
to 4 inches in length and to five-eighths of an. .
inch In diameter under an amendment just
approved by the National Industrial Recovery
The quantity of explosives in each piece of ::
fireworks also will be limited by the amend-
ment. It becomes effective July 6, 1935, pro- *
vided the Code is extended.
The pyrotechnic Code Authority proposed ^.'
the amendment. "
Tile Contracting Code
Stay Is Granted
An order staying rule 9, article IV, of the .:'
Tile Contracting Code, which prohibits mem- ;
bers of the industry from selling tile, mantels, -
or accessories until June 16, 1935, has been .
approved by the National Industrial Recov- .:
The Code Authority for this Industry, a .:
division of the construction industry, re- :
quested a stay of this provision as working a :
hardship on consumers and members of the
industry alike. It denied consumers the priv- ,'
iege of purchasing mantels, tile, and tile ac- :
cessories from members of the industry and "
prevented the latter from disposing of sur-
plus material or of accommodating their cus-
tomers by furnishing material without serv-
ice, it was stated.

Lumber and Timber Products
SFACTS.-It appears that the Cherry
[ River Boom and Lumber Co., of Richwood,
W. Va., subject to the Appalachian and South-
ern Hardwood Subdivision of the Hardwood
Division of the above Code, maintains a boiler
plant consisting of nine 150-hp. pressure
boilers. That boiler plant is required to
Operate the establishment, and in addition
furnishes beat and light for the community
of Richwood, W. Va. That boiler plant is
capable of developing 1,350-hp. pressure, all
of which is required to operate the plant
fully and to' furnish heat and light to the
community. Seven of the boilers contained
in that plant had been in service for more
than 30 years on or about November 1933.
At that time an inspector. of the Hartford
Beiler Insurance Co., during a periodical in-
spection, discovered that a crack had de-
veloped in the sheets in one of the boilers
Sand instructed the above concern to replace
that boiler, and further instructed said con-
cern to replace all other boilers unless the
pressure thereof was reduced to 90 pounds
per square inch. The above concern imme-
diately proceeded to replace the boilers,
maintaining, wilh the approval of the said
inspector, 115 pounds pressure per square
inch in all of the boilers, except two, during
..the course of their replacement, the' plant
being kept in operation during the replace-
ment by the operation of the seven boilers
at the lowered pressure of 115 pounds per
square inch. The replacement was begun
during the month of November 1933 and
completed during the month of February
1934. During the course of the replacement
of these boilers, 2 crews of about 15 men.
each, were each permitted to work in excess
of forty (401 hours per week for a certain
QUESTION.-Does the employment of the
above workers in the replacement of' the
boilers under the above circumstances, in
excess of the maximum hours prescribed by
Sthe Code, constitute temporary employment
JIn case of emergency within the meaning of
'.:tartlcle VI, section (a), subsection 2, sub-
paragraph C, or repair work within the
-meaning of article VI, section (a), subsec-
tion 2, subparagraph B?
RULING.-It Is ruled that the necessity
for such replacement, to wit: For the re-
placement of nine boilers., the total number
of boilers in the boiler plant, does not con-
s titute an emergency within the meaning of
..article VI, section ia), subsection 2, para-
graph C. Such replacement constitutes re-
Spair work within the meaning of article
; VI, section (a), subsection 2, paragraph C.
:.Such replacement constitutes repair work
Within the meaning of article VI, section (a),
subsection 2. subparagraph B.
Carpet and Rug MIanufacturing
FACTS.-Article VII, section 19 (a.) reads
as follows: "Retail stores are to be credited
or paid the volume allowances based only
on merchandise invoiced to an individual
company. No manufacturers shall pay or
allow credit for any cost of teshipping mer-
chandise shipped and invoiced to a retailer."
Purchases of the products of this industry
are made not only by single retail companies
but also by companies which control or own
two or more retail stores and by cooperative
buying groups representing retail stores
known as retail members of the group.
QUESTION.-Does article VII, section
19 (a)i allow members of the carpet and
rug manufacturing industry to credit or pay
volume allowances based on merchandise in-
voiced to a company owning or controlling
two or more retail stores, or to a cooperative
buying group representing retail members
as well as to individual companies?
INTERPRETATION.-The provisions of
article VII. section 19 (a) allow crediting
and paying of volume allowances based on
merchandise invoiced to an "' individual com-
pany interpreted as
(a) A single retail store or two or more
retail stores owned by the same individual
or under one capital control or partnership
or stock company, or
(b) A cooperative buying group repre-
senting retail stores provided that such buy-
ing group is a legal entity and is independ-
ent of any affiliation in any form with any
member of the industry, his agent, or his
Soap and Glycerine Manu-
FACTS.-An- employee operates a filling
machine by feeding boxes into the machine,
which opens and forms the' box automati-
cally, then seals the bottoms and runs the
boxes over to the scales, where they are filled
with the product, and then through the top
sealer. The boxes are then ready for the
wrapping machine. This employee regularly
checks the weight and watches each opera-
t-ion, keeps glue supplied, and cleans, oils, ad-
justs, and cares for the machine. Usually
one employee operates 2 machines at the
QUESTION.-May the employee described
above be paid the minimum wage provided
by article IV, paragraph A, section 2. of the
Code of fair competition for the soap and
glycerine manufacturing industry, on the the-
ory that he is engaged in the light task of
wrapping, packaging, and filling?
FACTS.-Article VII, sections 1 and 2, re-
quire a member of the industry to keep a
price list on file with the Code Authority or'
its designated agency, and to adhere strictly
to the prices and terms of his filed price
Article VIII, rule 5 (a), of said Code
reads as follows: "Selling Below Cost. (a)
No member of the industry shall sell any
candy at a price below cost, as determined
pursuant to the provisions of article VI,
section 14 (kI) ; except that a member of the
Industry may meet the lower prices of a com-
petitor whose prices are not In violation of
this Code; provided, however, that such mem-
ber shall report immediately to the Code
Authority the name of such competitor, the
sales price of the article or articles of candy
involved and his own cost thereon."
Article VI, section 14, of said Code reads
in part as follows: "'Section 14. Subject to
such rules and regulations as may be issued
by the Administrator, the Code'Authority
shall have the following powers and duties,
in addition to those authorized by other
provisions of this Code.
"(k) To study the problem of improved
accounting and cost finding for the industry
and to submit to the Administrator its rec-
ommendations for elements of cost to be
used by the Code Authority to adm'lnister
and enforce the provisions of this Code.
Upon the approval of the Administrator, such
elements of cost and/or cost finding shall be
binding upon each member of the Industry."
The Code Authority studied such problem
and submitted to the Administrator of the
National Industrial Recovery Board "its
recommendations for elements of cost to be
used by the Code Authority to administer
and enforce the provisions of this Code",
but the same has not been approved by the
Administrator or said Board.
QUTESTION.-(1) Under such a state of
facts, does said Code prohibit a member of
the industry from filing a price which is be-
low cost figures either in accordance with
his own cost finding system or that recom-
mended by the Code Authority?
(2) Under such a state of facts, does said
Code prohibit such member of the industry.
from selling at such filed price even though
it is below cost?
INTERPRETATION.-(1) Under such a
state of facts, said Code. does not prohibit a
member of the industry from filing a price
which is below cost figured either in accord-
ance with his own cost finding system or
that recommended by the Code Authority.
(2) Under such a state of facts, said Code
does not prohibit a member of the industry
from selling below cost if he sells at his
filed price. Article VIII, rule 5 (a)i only
prohibits selling below cost as determined in
accordance with elements of cost (i. e., a cost
finding system) approved by the Adminis-
trator or the National Industrial Recovery
Board pursuant to article VI, section 14
(k), and no elements of cost or cost-finding
system has been so approved.
Coated Abrasives Industry
FACTS.-Article IV, section 3 of the Code
of fair competition for the coated abrasives
industry reads as follows:
'" Except as hereinafter provided, the min-
imum wage that shall be paid to any ac-
countant, clerical, or office employee (not
including traveling salesmen), shall be fif-
teen ($15) dollars per week in any city of
over 500,000 population or in the Immediate
trade area of such city; not less than four-
teen dollars and fifty cents ($14.50) per week
in any city of between 250,000O and 500,000
population or in the immediate trade area
of such city; and not less than fourteen
($14) dollars per week in any city of between
2,500 and 250,000 population or in the im-
mediate trade area of such city. In towns
of less than 2,500 population, all wages of
such emplidyees shall be increased not less
than twenty (20) percent, provided that this
increase shall not require wages in excess
of twelve ($12) dollars per week."
According to the Code Authority, all of
the salesmen in the industry should be classi-
fied as traveling salesmenn. This is the
case even in large centers like New York.and
Chicago, .%here one man may cover the ter-
ritory. When operating in these centers the
salesmen are unable to return home each
night. The salesmen in the industry are not
supposed to spend any appreciable amount
of time daily or weekly in the office of their
employer, hut to travel constantly among the
trade, subject to the control and supervision
of their employer. They are generally paid
a monthly drawing account, plus extra com-
pensation based entirely upon the volume of
their individual sales. Industry products
are also sold in at least one large center
(Detroit) by so-called local outside or spe-
cialty salesmen, according to a report sub-
mitted by the office of the Michigan State
NRA Compliance Director. These men call
principally on the retail trade: they are paid
on a straight commission basis, and are not
subject to control or supervision by their
employer. Their work does not require them
to be away from their homes at night The ::.i
only contract they have with their employer's '
office is for the purpose of turning in orders .
and of getting their commission checks. :V
QUESTION.-(1) Does the term "traY.";
eling salesman in article IV, section 3, of;
the said Code include local outside sales-...
(2) If outside salesmen are not covered'-:|
by the minimum weekly wage requirementS.'p'.
and if they are given any weekly guarantee ,-,d
whatever, must this weekly guarantee equal :-'
the minimum weekly wage? ':
INTERPRETATION.-(1) There is no=)
authority in the Code for including "local;:`.|
outside salesmen" within the term "trav-.y
eling salesnien." .
(2) Such "local outside salesmen", er-:,
cept when they are commission salesmen who.""
have a contract with a member of the In-.'.
dustry, so worded as to constitute comiis'
sion salesmen independent contractors, are'
employees and subject to the minimum hour- ,':
ly wage provided in article IV, section 1I, ofu;:
the Code. '.
No. 84V1-11 "
Rule 10 of article VIII of the supplemen-2j
tary Code provides that "no member of the .
industry shall, for the purpose of influencing: .
a sale, sell or offer to sell any commodity .S
other than a product of industry in combina- .-.
tion with any product of this industry at a ,i4.
price which will yield to the seller less than ..
the total cost to him.
No member of the Industry shall, for the :M
purpose of influencing a sale, sell or offer to.S
sell.commodities other than products of this:
industry without separately stating the price '1
of such commodities unless such commodities I
are incorporated as an Integral part of a '
complete unit." .
FACTS.-A member of the industry offers'..'
to sell or sells a product of the industry in V.t
combination with a product of another in- ,'-.
dustry, quoting a lump sum price therefore. :-
. QUESTION.-(1) If the price quoted' It.";
more than the total cost to the member-of'.ii
the industry, does the method of quoting.,";,'jj)
per se, imply the intent to influence the sale.`,',
(2) If separate prices are not quoted for %-.
each product, when such products are not ''
incorporated as an integral part of a cornm- '.
plete unit, does the method of quoting, per -
se, influence the sale? .
INTERPRETATION.-The quoting in "!
lump sum, under the above conditions, does '0
not imply the intent to influence a sale nor.'
does the method of quoting, per se, influence .',
a sale. ,:i.

SLeaf Spring Manufacturing
'. .. No. 105C-5
FACTS.-Spring manufacturers place upon
their springs a so-called part number. The
:"..manufacturers put out a catalog in which are
.W.;." listed their part numbers, together with a
.L .description of the springs, mechanical speci-
q. cationss, make, model, and the year of the
ar;'.,a on which such spring is used. These
%c..atalogs are furnished by the manufacturers
].''to their wholesalers and then generally dis-

FACTS.-Article IX, section 1 (f) of the
Code of fair competition for the retail trade
(as added by Amendment No. 3 approved
Aug. 23, 1934), provides the following:
No retailer shall sell or offer for sale any
merchandise 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 subsection shall not apply to nonprofit
organizations not definitely constituted to
carry on retail trade."
Executive Order No. 6354, dated October
23, 1933. as amended by Executive Order No.
6710, dated May 15, 1934, provides, among
other things, that certain employers whose
places of business are located In towns of
less than 2,500 population are exempted from
the provisions of Codes of fair competition
" which relate to hours of employment, rates
of pay, the minimum prices at which mer-
chandise may be sold or services performed,
and the collection of assessments."
An uncertainty exists as to whether the
Executive order grants an exemption with
respect to this Code provision.
QUESTION.-Does the said article IX,
section 1 (fj) of the Code of fair competition
for the retail trade relate to the minimum
prices at which merchandise may be sold,
and are the employers mentioned in the
Executive order exempt therefrom?
INTERPRETATION.-The Code prorl- "
sion does not relate to the minimum prices at
which such merchandise may be sold, and
the Exe.:utive order does not exempt such
employers therefrom. Accordingly, the Ex-
ecutive order does not exempt any retailers
from observance of the provisions of the said
article IX, section 1 (j'D.
FACTS.-The Code Authority of the fire
extinguishing appliance manufacturing indus-
try has asked for an interpretation of article
II, section 2 of the Code of fair competition
for said industry, as follows :
"While It seems to us that the intent of'
article II, section 2 of the Code is clearly in-
dicated as meaning that this Code covers all
of the following separate items: Fire-extin-
guishing appliances; charging units for fire-
extinguishing appliances; chemical com-
pounds for fire-extinguishing appliances;
service parts for fire-extinguishing appliances,
and such other products, etc.,
in order that there may be no misunderstand-
ing as to the intent, the Code Authority re-
quests an Interpretation of article II, section
2, to cover the, fact that 'charging units',
'chemical compounds', 'service parts', and
'such other products' fall within the lan-
guage of 'and.or'."
QUESTION.-Article II, section 2 of the
Code of fair competition for the fire extin-
guishing appliance manufacturing industry
reads as follows:
"The term 'the Industry' as used in this
Code shall mean the manufacturing in the
United States and sale )by manufacturers of
fire-extinguishing appliances of all types, in-
cluding hand-portable, two-wheeled portable,
and stationary appliances, and devices there-'
for;. and charging units and chemical com-
pounds used therewith; and service parts;
and such other products as may from time to
time be included under this Code. This term
is not intended to include motor-fire appara-
tus or auLomatic-sprinkler systems."
Does the foregoing definition use the word
"and preceding the terms "charging
units", "chemical compounds". "service .
parts ", such other products in the conjunc-
tive sense or in the sense of "'and. or"'?
INTERPRETATION.-Article II, section 2
of the Code of fair competition for the fire-
extinguishing appliance manufacturing indus-
try is hereby interpreted to mean:
"The term 'the industry' as used in this
Code shahl mean the manufacturing in the
United States and sale by manufacturers of
fire-extinguishing appliances iof all types, in-
cluding hand-portable, two-wheeled portable,
and stationary appliances, and devices there-
for; and/or charging units used therewith
and/or chemical compounds used therewith;
and/or service parts; and'or such other
products as may from time to time be in-
cluded under this Code. This term is not
intended to include motor-fire apparatus or

FACTS.-The definition of the automatic
sprinkler industry in the Code of Fair Corn- ,
petition for that industry reads as follows:

tion engaged in the business of the manufac-
ture of automatic sprinklers and devices and
the fabrication and installation of automatic

nership, or corporation subject to the pro-
visions of the Code of Fair Competition for
the automatic sprinkler industry:
1. Manufacture automatic sprinklers and
devices: 2. Fabricate automatic sprinkler
equipment: 3. Install automatic sprinkler

S Household, industrial, and toilet soaps and soap products, as well as the
Sglycerine that is a byproduct of the saponification process, constitute the
1 articles which are made under the Soap and Glycerine Manufacturing Code.
Employing approximately 15,0006 wage earners as it does, soap and glycerine
Manufacturing is one of the smaller industries. In certain respects this indus-
., try is distinctive. The ratio of wages to value added by manufacture is low,
; 14'percent in 1933 after a decline from 25 percent in 1919. The industry can
derive its raw materials from a number of unrelated sources, chiefly animal
I fats and oils, nut and seed oils, and fish and whale oils. Further, soap is used
predominately for domestic purposes; this largely accounts for the moderation
Sof the recession experienced during depression and is in part the explanation
Sof the prevalence of branding of soaps. These conditions tended to protect
the wage earners from the more severe effects of the depression. They also
meant that in this instance industry was able to share the work among wage
earners without adversely affecting weekly earnings.
The working week was definitely curtailed in the second half of 1933 by
Sa reduction in hours per week from 43 to 38. Paralleling this decline in
S average hours worked per week, which can be observed in the first section of
the chart, is the increase in employment that is shown in the second section
Sof the chart. While the former series dropped off 12 percent, the latter gained
S.by approximately 20 percent. These changes, of course, imply some gains in
Employment over and above what the reduction in hours alone would require.
While hours per week were reduced, the average hourly wage moved upward.
The impetus given to hourly wages in the third quarter of 1933 served to
Accelerate for the time being the rate of increase of these wages. Early in
1933 hourly wages had strengthened, and during 1934 they showed continued .
gains. Under the conflicting influences of a higher hourly rate and a'.
shortened week, average weekly wages have changed only moderately since'
1932. Such changes as did take place appeared mostly in 1934, when the"i
continued increases in hourly wages, at a time when hours per week were-
fairly constant, carried the weekly wage upward.
Employment in the soap and glycerine industry, as evidenced by the'
employment index in the second section of the chart, held up well throughout
the depression. After the transition in 1933 the index has maintained a level.A
13 percent above the average for the predepression year. Pay rolls improved .
definitely in 1933 and subsequently have advanced until early in the current.)I
year they were less than 5 percent below their 1929 average. Man-hours have"|
maintained approximately the same level during. the 3 years the series covers..
The small increase witnessed during the latter half of the period covered 'is
consistent, and necessarily so, with the gains in employment above the addi-i
tions required to compensate for the shortened working week.
An index of wholesale prices of the products of the soap and glycerine
manufacturing industry is shown in the third section of the chart. The index'.?
takes into account various toilet and laundry soaps and glycerine. It appears
that a decline of nearly 30 percent had taken place by the spring of 1933. In ,
the second half of that year are shown moderate gains which proved tempo-;.:
rary. During the last several months processing taxes on certain oils have :
raised costs of raw materials, costs both of the oils upon which the taxes were":
applied and of competing oils and fats. Some effects of this appear in the
index of wholesale prices. !
