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 Tale
and Soapstone Industry, submitted by the Code Authority for the
said Indu-try.
The existing provision of Article VI, Section 5 of the Code for
the said Indu-try, is entirely inadequate in view of Executive Order
6678 and Administrative Order X-36, and it is therefore evident that
the amendment to Article VI of said Code, the provisions of which
follow closely the text of the above mentioned Orders, will overcome
the existing inadequate provisions.

FINDINGS

The Deputy Administrator in his final report to us on said amend-
ment to -aid Code having found as herein set forth and on the basis
of all the proceedings in this matter:
We 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-
ti(,on to, the free flow of interstate and foreign commerce which tend
to dimini-h the amount thereof, and will provide for the general
welfare by promoting the organization of industry for the purpose
(f 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 industries. by avoiding undue restric-
tion of production (except as may be temporarily required), by in-
creasing the cons-umptiun of industrial and agricultural products
through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving
uneniplofyment. by iimplroving standards of labor, and by otherwise
r.l;a ilitating in ui.-tr\'y.
(b) The Code as aIl ended c(.mplies in all respects with the perti-
nent provision of said Title of said Act, includlinig without limitation
:ub--section (a) of Section 3, sub-.section (a) of Section 7 and sub-
;(-.tior! (b) of Secti, n 10 thereof.
(c) The Code empowers the Code Authority to present the afore-
said (imendimnt on belhalf of the industry as a whole.
(d) The amendment and the Code as ;mended are not designed
to and- will not permit moni.opolir.i or monopolistic practices.
(2)






3

(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.
(f) Those engaged in other steps of the economic proce-.s have
not been deprived of the right to be heard prior to approval of said
amendment.
For these reasons, therefore, we have approved this amendment.
For the National Industrial Recovery Board:
W. A. HARRIMAN, Adm?7iffat;,ve Officer.
NOVEMBER 6, 1934.
