REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT


The PRESIDENT,
The White House.
SIR: A Public Hearing was held in Washington, D. C. on Novem-
ber 1, 19-1 on an amendment to the Code of Fair Competition for
the Chinaware and Porcelain Manufa,-turing Industry as submitted
by the Code Authority for that industry and on an amendment
proposed by the National Recovery Admi tinit ration.
The amend:llm nt proposed by the Code Authority did not have the
Lirlkiiig of a suffi,.ient majority of the members of the industry to
merit approval at this tinil. In view of this fact it was deemed
advisable to proceed with the approval of the amendment contained
in Pcllhed'il B" of the Notice of Hearing and to which the Code
Authority has assented.
The amendment proposed by the National Recovery Administra-
tion is designed to bring certain provisions of the Code into con-
formity with approved policy and terminology. The amendment
provides for handicapped workers, stand;l.rds of safety and health,
hazardous occupations, supersedance of state and Federal Laws, the
posting of labor provisions, dismissal of employees for complaint of
code violation, the collection of reports and -tatistics, the right of
the National Industrial Recovery Board to suspend unfair actions
of the Code Authority, conferring upon the Code Authority the right
to propose a inelniieint., false billing and commercial bribery.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to us on said amend-
ment to said Code having found as herein set forth and on the basis
of all pr'oceedinlgs in this matter:
We 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 ob-
structions to the 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, n tal sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair com-
petitive practices, by promoting the fullest rpo-sible utilization of
the present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue
restriction of production (except as may be temporarily required),
by ii.c ; u-ilg the consumption of industrial and agricultural prod-
ucts through increarlsisng purchasing power, by reducing and relieving
unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
rehabilitating indu.try.
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provision of said Title of said Act, including without limita-






3

tion 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 de-;igned to
and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic pri;i'tices.
(d) The amendment and the Code as allenided are not de.-igned to
and will not eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not
operate to discriminate against them.
(e) Those engaged in other -teps of the econiomil process have not
been deprived of the right to be heard prior to approval of said
amendment.
For these reasons, therefore, we have approved this amenduient..
For the National Induitrial Recovery Board:
W. A. HARRIMAN,
Adm, ,i ;,i.r/alticve Officer.
