REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House.
SIR: This is a report on an amendment to the Code of Fair Compe-
tition for the Machine Applied Staple and Stapling Machine
Industry. A public hearing was duly held thereon in Washington,
D.C., May 16, 1934, in accordance with the provisions of the
National Industrial Recovery Act.
The amendment amends Article IX by adding a new section to
become Section 10, and provides that no member of the Industry
shall sell any products of the Industry at prices other than those
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said
amendment to said Code having found as herein set forth, and on the
basis of all the proceedings in this matter,
I find that:
(a) The amendment to said Code and the Code as amended are
well designed to promote the policies and purposes of Title I of the
National Industrial Recovery Act, including the removal of obstruic-
tion to free flow of interstate and foreign commerce which tend to
diminish the amount thereof and will provide for the general welfare
by promoting the organization of Industry for the purpose of
cooperative action of labor and management under adequate govern-
mental sanction and supervision by eliminating unfair competitive
practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the present
productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue restriction of
production (except as may be temporarily required), by increasing
the consumption of industrial and agricultural products through
increasing purchasing power by reducing and relieving unemploy-
ment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise rehabili-
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the
pertinent provisions of said Title of said Act including, without
limitation, subsection (a) of Section 3, subsection (a) of Section 7
and subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The amendment and the Code as amended are not designed
to, and will not, permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(d) The amendment and the Code as amended are not designed
to, and will not, eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not
operate to discriminate against them.
(e) Those engaged in other steps of the economic process have
uot been deprived of the right to be heard prior to approval of said
For these reasons, therefore, I have approved this amendment.
