REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT


The PRESIDENT,
The White.House.
SIR: An application has been duly made pursuant to and in full
compliance with the provisions of the National Industrial Recovery
Act, for an amendment to the Code of Fair Competition for the
Funeral Supply Industry, submitted by the Code Authority for the
Funeral Supply Industry.
The purpose and effect of the amendment are to authorize the
Code Authority to submit a budget and method of assessment upon
which funds shall be contributed by members of the Industry.
FINDINGS
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said amend-
ment 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 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 maintaining
united action of labor and management under adequate governmen-
tal sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair competitive prac-
tices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the present
productive capacity of the industries, by avoiding undue restrictions
of production (except as may be. temporarily required), by increas-
ing 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 rehabilitat-
ing industry.
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limitation
Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7 and Sub-
section (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 not
been deprived of the right to be heard prior to approval of said
Amendment.
For these reasons, therefore, I have approved this Amendment.
Respectfully,
HUGH S. JOHNSON,
Administrator.
JUNE 6, 1934.










AMENDMENT TO CODE OF FAIR COMPETITION FOR THE
FUNERAL SUPPLY INDUSTRY

(1) Amend Article VII by inserting a new section to be known
as Section 6 as follows:
6. (a) It being found necessary in order to support the adminis-
tration of this code and to maintain the standards of fair competition
established hereunder and to effectuate the policy of the Act, the
Code Authority is authorized:
"(1) 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;
"(2) 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 estimated 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;
"(3) After such budget and basis of contribution have been ap-
proved by the Administrator, to determine and obtain equitable con-
tribution as above set forth by all members of the industry, and to
that end, if necessary, to institute legal proceedings therefore in its
own name.
"(b) Each member of the industry shall be liable for his or its
equitable contribution to the expenses of the maintenance of the Code
Authority, determined as hereinabove provided, and subject to rules
and regulations pertaining thereto issued by the Administrator. Only
members of the industry complying with the Code and contributing
to the expenses of its administration as hereinabove provided, shall
be entitled to participate 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.
"(c) The Code Authority shall neither incur nor pay any obliga-
tion in excess of the amount thereof as estimated in its approved
budget, except upon approval of the Administrator first obtained;
and no subsequent budget shall contain any deficiency item for
expenditures in excess of prior budget estimates except those which
the Administrator shall have so approved.
"(d) Failure on the part of any member of the industry to con-
tribute his or its equitable contribution to the expenses of maintain-
ing the Code Authority, determined as hereinabove provided, shall
be a violation of this Code, subject however to rules and regulations
issued by the Administrator which pertain hereto."
