REPORT TO.THE PRESIDENT.
The PRESIDENT,
The White House. i
SIR: The Public Hearing on proposed amendments to the Code
of Fair Competition for the Men's Garter, Suspender and Belt Man-
ufacturing Industry as submitted by the Code Authority was con-
ducted on Tuesday, May 8, 1934, in Room 129 of the Willard Hotel,
Washington, D.C. Every person who requested an opportunity to
be heard was fairly heard in public in accordance with the require-
ments of the National Recovery Administration as set forth in
Notice of Hearing: No. 161-B. Present at the hearing were duly
authorized representatives of the Code Authority.
Article VIII, Section 2 of the Code of Fair Competition for the
Men's Garter, Suspender and Belt Manufacturing Industry, .ap-
proved by you on November 4, 1933, provides that the code may be
modified on the basis of experience or changes in circumstances;
such modification to be based upon application by the Code Author-
ity to the Administrator. In accordance with this provision the
Code Authority submitted amendments which were heard at the
Public Hearing.
In final form these amendments have been approved by the Labor
Advisory Board, Industrial Advisory Board, Consumers' Advisory
Board, the Research and Planning Division and the Legal Division
of the National Recovery Administration. The Code Authority has
also indicated its assent to and approval of these amendments.
The substance of these amendments is as follows:
(1) The title of this Code is amended to read: Code of Fair
Competition for the Garter, Suspender and Belt Manufacturing
Industry." The word "Men's" formerly appearing in the title of
this Code has been eliminated because the definition of the Code
includes articles of apparel for women and children and hence the
inclusion of the word Men's in the title was misleading.
(2) The Labor Provisions have been amended to permit the con-
tinued employment of apprentices at less than the minimum wages
during a six (6) weeks' period. This amendment being necessary
because the Code, as originally approved, permitted such employ-
ment of apprentices only until June 1, 1934. The principal change
therefore, is that of extending the period in which members of the
Industry are allowed to employ apprentices at less than regular
minimum rates of pay. These provisions relating to the employment
of learners are harmonious with those of other codes for the Apparel
Trades.
(3) Article V has been amended to include the substance of your
Executive Order of April 14, 1934, relating to the financing of Code
Authorities.
(4) Trade Practice Provisions have been amended to permit antic-
ipation at the rate of six (6%) percent per annum, and to prohibit
(2)






8
the payment of commissions or other compensation to the customers
or for employees in connection with purchase or sale of the products
Sof this Industry.
(5) There has been added a provision requiring the products of
Sthe Industry to bear a special N.R.A. label and granting the Code
SAthority jurisdiction over the issuance of such labels subject to
approval of the Administrator.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on these
amendments to said Code, having found as herein set forth and on
the basis of all the proceedings in this matter:
I find that:
S(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 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 re-
striction of production (except as may be temporarily required), by
increasing the consumption of industrial and agricultural products
through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving un-
employment, 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 limita-
tion subsection (a) of Section 3, subsection (a) of Section 7 and
subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(-e) 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
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.
Respectfully,
sHUGH S. JOHNSON,
Administrator.
MAY 17, 1934.
