The PRESIDENT,
The White House.
SIR: This is a report of the hearing on thie Code of Fair Competi-
tion for the Paper Bag Manufacturing Industry, conducted in Wash-
ington on November 2, 1933, in accordance with the provisions of
Title I of the National Industrial Recovery Act.

HOURS AND WAGES

For factory workers, this Code provides a forty-hour week averaged
over thirteen weeks, but not more than forty-eight hours in any one
week, with overtime payment for hours worked in excess of eight
per day. For office workers, the Code specifies a forty-hour week
averaged over one year and an average of not more than forty-eight
hours per week in any period of thirteen weeks. Slightly longer
hours are permitted for additional nonproductive employees.
The minimum wage for factory workers in the Northern and
Central zones are 38 and 35 cents per hour respectively for males,
with a 5-cent differential for female workers in each case. In the
Southern zone the minimum wage for this class is 30 cents for both
men and women. Provision is made that men and women doing
the same work shall receive the same pay. An exception is made of
work which on July 15, 1929, paid less than the prescribed rates.
In such cases the 1929 rate, or ninety percent of the basic Code rate,
whichever is higher, is prescribed. The minimum wages of office
workers range from $12.00 to $15.00 per week, as in the President's
Reemployment Agreement.
This industry is closely allied with the Paper and Pulp Industry,
and about 60 percent of the total production of bags is carried on in
plants which manufacture their own paper. For this reason, this
Code prescribes the same minimum wages and maximum hours as
the Paper and Pulp Code. Provision is made that when a rehear-
ing is held on the Paper and Pulp Code, as directed in your Execu-
tive Order of November 17, 1933, approving said Code, the wage
and hour provisions of the Paper and Pulp Code, as determined
after such rehearing, shall apply to this Industry.

OTHER CODE PROVISIONS
Nine divisions of this Industry are established under subordinate
Codes. Provisions are made for an open price plan, for the filing of
reports with the Administrator and for a cost accounting system
which will equalize the differential in transportation costs between
self-contained and converting mills. Trade practices are established
for the Industry.
ECONOMIC EFFECT OF THE CODE
In 1929 the Paper Bag Manufacturing Industry employed about
3,600 workers. In May 1933 employment had increased to about
(462)







463


23 percent over the 1929 level as a resiilt of increased production.
Under the President's Reemiployincnt Agreement, the total was
raised 46 percent over the 1929 figure. The effect of the hour limi-
tations of this Code will be to give employment to about 5 percent
more workers, bringing the total for the industry to more than 6,000.
The increase in employment under the President's Reemployment
Agreement has already brought about increases in pay rolls, so that
the wage provisions of this Code will add only about 5 percent to
present pay rolls. Compared with annual pay rolls as of April 1933,
however, the increases under the Code will be about $922,500
annually.
FINDINGS

The Deputy Adcinii.-trator in his final report to me on said Code
having found as herein set forth and on the basis of all the proceed-
ings in this matter;
I find that:
(a) Said Code is well designed to promote the policies and pur-
poses of Title I of the National Industrial Recovery Act, including
removal of obstructions to the free flow of interstate and foreign
commerce which tend to diminish the amount thereof and will pro-
vide for the general welfare by promoting the organization of in-
dustry for the purposee of cooperative action among the trade groups,
by inducing and maintaining united action of labor and management
under adequate governmental sanctions and supervision, by elimi-
nating unfair competitive practices, by promoting the fullest pos-
sible utilization of the present productive capacity of industries,
by avoiding undue restriction of production (exci-.t as may be
temporarily required), by increasing the con.-u1Uption of industrial
and agricultural products through increasing purchasing power,
by reducing and relieving unemployment. by improving standards
of labor, and by otherwise rehabilitating industry.
(b) Said Industry normally employs not more than 50,000 em-
ployees. and is not classified by me as a major industry.
(c) The Code as approved complies in all respects with the per-
tinent. provisions of Title I of the Act, including without limita-
tion Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7, and
Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof; and that the applicant group
is an industrial group truly representative of the aforesaid Indus-
try; and that said association imposes no inequitable restrictions on
admission to membership therein.
(d) The Code is not designed to and will not permit monopolies
or monopolistic practices.
(e) The Code is 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 Code.
For these reasons this Code has been approved.
Respectfully,
HUGH S. JOHNSON,
Administrator.
JANUARY 26, 1934.

in accordance with a formula to be adopted by the Code Authority,
by all members of the Industry who accept the benefit of the services
of the Code Authority and/'or of the Executive Authorities of any
division of this Industry, or otherwise assent to this Code.
6. The Code Authority shall have power to investigate alleged

adopt and submit divisional Codes as provided in Article III hereof.
9. The Code Authority may create new divisions by the subdivi-
sion of any such divisions or by the consolidation of any two or
more of such divisions, provided, however, that no such subdivision
or consolidation shall be made without the consent of the divisional
association of each division affected thereby.

ARTICI E VII-Ac(CO' OUTING AND SELLING

1. The Code Authority shall, as -oon as practicable, prescribe a
standard method of costing and accounting for the Industry and sub-
mit the same to the Administrator. When it shall have been ap-
proved by the Administrator, every member shall use an accounting
and costing system which conforms to the principles of and is at
least as detailed and complete as such standard method.
2. Each member shall within twenty-four (24) hours after the
effective date of this Code, file with the Executive Authority of his
division, in such form as such Executive Authority shall prescribe,
complete lists or schedules of prices, terms, and conditions of sale
(including all differentials, discounts, trade allowances, printing
charges, and special charges) of all products offered for sale by such
member, and shall so file all subsequent changes therein or revisions
thereof. Each such schedule of prices shall conform to all trade
practices and other provisions established in and by this Code or any
subordinate Code applicable thereto or any amendment or supple-
ment to this Code or to such subordinate Code.
3. All such lists or schedules of prices, terms, and conditions of
sale and all changes therein or revisions thereof shall become effective
immediately on filing.
4. The Executive Authority of any division which shall include
the manufacture of made-to-order bags may suspend the provisions
of Section 2 hereof as to any of such bags.
5. The Executive Authority of each division shall provide each
member of its division with copies of all schedules so filed, and shall
upon request furnish copies thereof at cost to nonmembers at the
same time that they are sent to members.
6. No such schedule of prices and conditions of sale filed by any
member, or in effect at any time in any calendar month, shall be
such as to permit the sale of any product at less than the lower
of the following:
(a) The cost of such product to such member during the last period
of two consecutive months, or two accounting periods of four weeks
each, ending not less than thirty (30) days prior to the first day
of such month, which cost shall be determined pursuant to the
method of accounting and costing prescribed by the Code Authority
under this Article as soon as that method is prescribed and thereto-
fore pursuant to the method employed by such member subject to







470
such preliminary rules as the Code Authority shall prescribe with
the approval of the Administrator.
(b) The lowest price filed for such product under the provisions
of this Article by any other member and then in effect.
7. Each schedule filed under this Article shall state whether the
prices and conditions therein specified are justified under subdivi-
sion (a) or under subdivision (b) of Section 6 and in the case of
justification under subdivision (b) shall identify the schedule or
schedules of the other member or members of the Industry justify-
ing such prices and conditions. A schedule justified upon the basis
of the schedule or schedules of another member or members shall
become void forthwith upon the cancellation or revision upward
of such justifying schedule or schedules.
8. Except in fulfillment of bona fide contracts existing on the effec-
tive date of this Code, no member of the industry shall sell any
products of the Industry for domestic consumption at a price or
prices lower than or upon terms or conditions more favorable than
stated in his price schedule then on file, provided, however, that
discontinued lines or damaged goods or seconds of any product may
be disposed of in such manner and on such terms and conditions
as the Executive Authority of the division into which such products
fall may approve. Within ten (10) days after the effective date
of this Code, each member shall file with the Executive Authority
of the interested division complete details of all such bona fide con-
tracts and this information shall be available to the Code Authority.
9. Any accounting or costing system which may be used for the
purposes of this Article shall include as paper cost the current
published delivered market price of bag paper, the member's indi-
vidual conversion cost, and each division's transportation cost of
shipping bags. The current published delivered market price of
bag paper and each division's transportation cost of shipping bags
shall be determined and made available to all members of such divi-
sion at all times by the Code Authority. Such transportation cost
shall be the total transportation charges chargeable against the ship-
ments made by all members of a division during the preceding cal-
endar quarter year, ending not less than thirty (30) days prior to
the first day of the month in which such transportation cost shall
apply, divided by the total number of tons of bags shipped by all
members of such division during such period. The Executive
Authority of any division with the approval of the Administrator
may modify this paragraph as to such division.
10. The preceding Section hereof shall remain in force only for a
period beginning with the effective date of this Code, and ending on
the last day of the sixth calendar month thereafter, unless such
period shall be extended by the Administrator. At any time during
such period the Administrator, on thirty (30) days' notice to the
Code Authority, may declare said Section void and of no effect.
During such period, the members of the Industry shall furnish to a
disinterested accountant, or other disinterested qualified person, to
be selected by the Code Authority, such information as the Admin-
istrator may require regarding production costs, freight charges, and
such other matters as the Administrator may specify. Such ac-
countant, or other qualified person, shall be instructed by the Code







471


Authority to combine such information in such manner as the Ad-
ministrator may require, and to submit the same on behalf of the
Code Authority to the Administrator.
All information furnished in accordance with the provisions of
this Section shall be confidential except as to the Administrator and
his assistants, and no information furnished by one member shall
be revealed to another, nor be published except in combination with
other similar data and in such manner as to avoid the disclosure of
confidential information.

interested divisions, the names of his Agents and Brokers at least one
(1) week before such Agents and Brokers shall be entitled to the

received, unfilled orders, stocks on hand, inventory both raw and
finished, number of employees, wage rates, employee earnings, hours
of work and other matters-, as the Code Authority or the Adminis-
trator may from time to time require. Any or all information so

accountants or other qualified person or persons designated by the
Code Authority.
2. Except as otherwise provided in the Act, or in this Code, all
statistics, data and information filed or required in accordance with

data and information of one member shall not be revealed to an-
other member except for the purpose of enforcing the provisions
of this Code. No such data or information shall be published ex-
cept in combination with other similar data and in such a manner as

• j The PRESIDENT, The White Hoiose. SIR: This is a report of the hearing on the Code of Fair Competition for the Paper Bag Manufacturing Industry, conducted in Washington on November 2, 1933, in accordance with the provisions of Title I of the National Industrial R eco , ery Act. HOUR, AND WAGES For factory worke r s, this Code provides a forty-hour ,Yeck aYeraged over thirteen weeks, but not more than forty-eight hour in any one week, with overtime payment or hours worked in excess of eight per day. For office workers, the Code specifies a forty-hour week averaged over one year and an average of not more than forty-eight hours per week in any period of thirteen weeks. Slightly longer h ours are permitted for additional nonproductive employees. The minimum wage for factory workers in the Northern and Cen~ral zones are 38 and 35 cents per hour respectively for males, with a 5-cent differential for female workers in each case. In the Southern zone the minimum wage for this class is 30 cents for both men and "omen. Provision is made that men and women doincr the same \York shall receive the same pay. An exception is made of work which on July 15, 1929, paid less than the prescribed rates. In suc h cases the 1929 rate, or ninety percent of the basic Code rate, whicheYer is higher, is prescribed. The minimum wages of office worker range from $12.00 to $15.00 per week, as in the President's Reemployment Agreement. This industry is closely allied with the Paper and Pulp I11dustry, anu about 60 percent of the total production of bags is carTied on in plants "hich manufacture their own paper. For this reason, this Code prescribes the same minimum wages and maximum hours as the Paper and Pulp Code. Provision is made that when a rehearing is held on the Paper and Pulp Code, as directed in your Executive Order of N oven1ber 17, 1933, approving said Code, the wage and hour provisions of the Paper and Pulp Code, as determined after such rehearing, shall apply to this Industry. CYTHER CODE PROVISIONS Nine divisions of this Industry are established under subordinate Codes. Provisions are ma de for an open price plan, for the filing of reports with the Administrator and for a cost accounting system which will equalize the differential in transportation costs between self-contained and converting mills. Trade practices are established for the Industry. ECONOMIC EFl'E
