REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT


The PRESIDENT,
The White House.
SIR: The Code Authority for the Cotton Garment Industry, on
behalf of the members of the Industry, has submitted applications
for amendments of the Code of Fair Competition for such Industry.
The said proposed amendments amend Article XIX, Section 23
Paragraph (b) to the extent of substituting the word imperfect
for the word "irregulars wherever such appears in said provisions,
and amend Article IV, Section C, by substituting as a manufactur-
ing employee for the phrase in whatsoever capacity ".
Pursuant to such applications, a Notice of Opportunity to be Heard
was published on February 20, 1935 to afford members of the Industry
an opportunity to file objections against said proposed amendments.
No objections were filed by any members of the Industry pursuant to
such Notice.
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 obstruc-
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 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 consumption 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) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provision 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 afore-
said 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.
(e) The amendments and the Code as amended are not designed to
and will not eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not oper-
ate 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
amendment.
For these reasons these a amendments have been approved.
For the National Industrial Recovery Board:
W. A. HARRIMAN,
A dmin itrati'e Officer.
MAY 11, 1935.
