' REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT

The PRESIDENT,
The W:hite House.
SIR: This is a report on amendments to the Code of Fair Competi-
tion for the Art Needlework Industry. Notice of Hearing on these
amendments was published on August 22, 1934; and a hearing was
held on September 7, 1934. The amendments, which are attached,
were presented by duly qualified and authorized representatives of
the Industry, complying with statutory requirements, and being the
duly constituted Code Authority under the provisions of the said
Code for the Said Industry.
These amendments provide for additional 64 hours overtime in any
calendar year, to obtain from the members of the Industry such in-
formation and reports as are required for the administration of the
Code, and for the use of N. R. A. labels.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to the National In-
dustrial Recovery Board on said amendments to said Code having
found as herein set forth, and on the basis of all the proceedings in
this matter;
The National Industrial Recovery Board finds that:
(a) The amendments 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 obstiuc-
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 of labor and management under adequate gov-
ernmental sanction 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 increasing
the consumption of industrial and agricultural products through in-
creasing 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 limitation
sub-section (a) of Section 3, sub-section (a) of Section 7, and sub-
section (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Code Authority is empowered to present the aforesaid
amendments on behalf of the Industry as a whole.
(d) The amendments and the Code as amended are not designed
to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.






4

(e) The amendments 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 process have not
been deprived of the right to be heard prior to approval of said
amendments.
For these reasons these amendments have been approved.
For the National Industrial Recovery Board:
W. A. HARRIMAN,
A administrative Officer.
F-RRUARY 15, 1935.
