REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT


The PRESIDENT,
The White House.
SIR: The Hearing on the aiitoldinent to the Code of Fair Compe-
tition for the Retail Trade was held on August 27, 1934 in Room
2062, DUpartment of Commerce Building, Washington, D.C. The
amendment, which is attached, was presented by duly qllulified and
authorized representatives of the Trade, complying with statutory
requirements, such representatives being members of the National
Retail Code Authority, Inh.
In accordance with customary procedure, everyone pre-:nt who
had filed a request for an appearance was freely heard in public,
and all statutory and reultory ory rcq(uiriiniiili were complied with.
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) Th- 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
obstructions to the free flow of interstate and foreign coiiImi.rce
which tend to diminish the amount thereof, and will provide for the
general welfare by promoting the o gani/iation of iindu-try for the
purpose of co-operative action of labor and ]nUn1:derinflit under ade-
quate governmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair
competitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible ut ilization
of the present productive cipacit'y f indii-ri.'-, by avoiding undue
restriction of production (except 'as may be temporarily required),
by ii ni-iiv-ng the consumption of inli n-tial and agricultural prod-
ucts through in'r.t.-inig, pur-1i:el-;ng power, by r.,lucing and reliev-
ing unemployment, by improving standardss of labor, and by other-
wise rehabilitating industry.
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the pei ti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without linit:i-
tion -iib-section (a) of Se-tion 3, sub-section (a) of Section 7 and
sub- -petion (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The amendment and the Code as amended are not d,.:igned
to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic Ipr,'tices.
(d) The amendment and the Code as amended are not .-ignrd
to and will not eliminate or oppress -mii ll cnteipri--: and will not
operate to discriminate ga;!i.iit them.
(e) Those eng.agi'd in other steps of the economic process have not
been deprive 1 of the right to be h.,i prior to the approval of said
amendment.
For these reasons I have approved said al.:'ndiinnt to the Code of
Fair Competition for the Retail Trade.
Respectfully,
HITGH S. JI hNS N,
