SIR: A public hearing was called on October 26, 1934, to discuss :,
amendments to the Code of Fair Competition for the Blouse and .
Skirt Manufacturing Industries. The hearing subsequently ad-
journed to November 16, 1934, and to December 3, 1934, and again to
December 17, 1934, at which date the amendment herein contained
was properly heard.
Following the hearing, this amendment was revised upon the basis
of facts presented, and in accordance with the suggestions of the
various Advisory Boards, the Legal Division, and the Division of
Research and Planning of the National Recovery Administration.
This amendment amends Article V by adding thereto a new sec-
tion to be known as section 9. The provisions of this new section-
empower the Code Authority to require members of the Industry
to keep accurate and complete records with respect to wages, hours
of labor, conditions of employment, number of employees, production
and such other matters as may be required by the Code, and shall
furnish accurate reports based on such records when required by the
Code Authority or the National Industrial Recovery Board. It is
further provided that a confidential agency shall be established by
the Code Authority for the purpose of examining any books and ree-
ords submitted in accordance with the provisions of this amendment.i'
In accordance with the counsel of the Legal Division, notices ofl:
Opportunity to be Heard will be printed and distributed in the same
manner as notices of Public Hearing. A specified date is set forth, j
in such notices, by which time objections and criticisms are to bell
received relative to this amendment. iA

matter:

(a) The amendment to said Code and the Code as amended aretI
well designed to promote the policies and purposes of Title I of the'
National Industrial Recovery Act, including the removal of obstrue-
tions to the free flow of interstate and foreign commerce which tend
to diminish the amount thereof, and will provide for the purpose 04
cooperative action of labor and management under adequate govern-ii
mental sanctions and supervision, by eliminating unfair competitive
practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the present
productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue restriction of '
production (except as may be temporarily required), by-incre
the consumption of industrial and agricultural products t
(2)









increased purchasing power, by reducing and relieving unem-
ployment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
rehabilitating Industry.
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the
pertinent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without
limitation 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
aforesaid 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.

not have been deprived of the right to be heard prior to the effective
date of this amendment.
For the National Industrial Recovery Board:
