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 Service Industry, submitted by the Code Authority for the
Funeral Service 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 main-
taining united action of labor and management under adequate gov-
ernmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair competi-
tive practices, 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 increasing the consumption of industrial and agricultural prod-
ucts through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving
unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
rehabilitating industry.
(b) The Code as amended 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 amendment on behalf of the industry as a whole.
(d) The Amendment and the Code as amended are not designed to
and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) 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.








3

(f) Those engaged in other steps- of the economic prices have not
been deprived of the right to be heard prior to approval of said
Amendment.
For these reasons, therefore, I have approved this Aumendment.
Respectfully,
HUGH S. JOHNISON,
AdmiLi;t rator.
JULY 24, 1934.














AMENDMENT TO CODE OF FAIR COMPETITION FOR

Code Authority is authorized:
"(1) To incur such reasonable obligations as are necessary and
proper for the foregoing purpo-:es 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 uilbmit 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 Administra-
tor. Only members 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 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 substantially in excess of the amount thereof as estimated in
its approved budget, and shall in no event exceed the total amount
contained in the approved budget, except upon approval of the
Administrator first obtained; and no subsequent budget shall con-
tain any deficicicy item for expenditures in excess of prior budget
estimates except those which the Administrator shall have so
