REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT
The White House
Sm: An application having been duly made pursuant to and in
full compliance with the provisions of the National Industrial Re-
covery Act, for a modification to the Code of Fair Competition for
the Abrasive Grain Industry, submitted by the Code Authority for
the Abrasive Grain Industry.
The purpose and effect of the modification is to authorize the
Code Authority to submit a budget and method of assessment upon
which funds shall be contributed by members of the Industry.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said modi-
fication of said Code having found as herein set forth and on the
basis of all the proceedings in this matter: I find that:
(a) The modification of said Code and the Code as modified are
well designed to promote the policies and purposes of Title I of the
National Industrial Recovery Act including the removal of obstruc-
tions 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 among Trade Groups by inducing and main-
taining united action of labor and management under adequate
governmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair com-
petitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the
present productive capacity of the 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
unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
(b) The Code as modified complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limita-
tion Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7 and
Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Code empowers the Code Authority to present the afore-
said modification on behalf of the Industry as a whole.
(d) The modification and the Code as modified are not designed
to and will not permit monopolies or.monopolistic practices.
(e) The modification and- the Code as modified are not designed
to and will not eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not
operate to discriminate against them.
(f) Those engaged in other steps of the economic process have
not been deprived of the right to be heard prior to approval of said
For these reasons, therefore, I have approved this modification.
HUGH S. JOHNSON,
SEPTEMBER 13, 1934.
MODIFICATION OF CODE OF FAIR COMPETITION FOR
THE ABRASIVE GRAIN INDUSTRY
Modify Article VI, Section 1, by eliminating subsection (b) and
by substituting in lieu thereof the following:
(b) 1. It being found necessary in order to support the adminis-
tration of this code and to maintain the standards of fair competi-
tion established hereunder and to effectuate the policy of the Act,
the Code Authority is authorized:
To incur such reasonable obligations as are necessary and proper
for the foregoing purposes, and to meet such obligations out of funds
which may be raised as hereinafter provided and which shall be
held in trust for the purposes of the Code;
To submit to the Administrator for his approval, subject to such
notice and opportunity to be heard as he may deem necessary (1) an
itemized budget of its expenses for the foregoing purposes, and (2)
an equitable basis upon which the funds necessary to support such
budget shall be contributed by members of the industry;
After such budget and basis of contribution have been approved
by the Administrator, to determine and obtain equitable contribu-
tion as above set forth by all members of the industry, and to that
end, if necessary, to institute legal proceedings therefore in its own
S2. Each member of the industry shall pay his or its equitable con-
tribution to the expenses of the maintenance of the Code Authority,
determined as hereinabove provided, and subject to rules and regu-
lations pertaining thereto issued by the Administrator. Only mem-
bers of the industry complying with the code and contributing to the
expenses of its administration as hereinabove provided, (unless duly
exempted from making such contributions,) shall be entitled to par-
ticipate in the selection of members of the Code Authority or to
receive the benefits of any of its voluntary activities or to make use
of any emblem or insignia of the National Recovery Administration.
3. The Code Authority shall neither incur nor pay any obligation
substantially in excess of the amount thereof as estimated in its ap-
proved budget, and shall in no event exceed the total amount con-
tained in the approved budget, except upon approval of the Admin-
istrator; and no subsequent budget shall contain any deficiency item
for expenditures in excess of prior budget estimates except those
