to File Objections to Amendments to The Rayon and Synthetic YTamp
Producing Industry Code, which was'published on March 5, 193
with the provision that objections against the Proposed Amend-
ments could be filed anytime prior to March 15, 1934. The Amend- j
ments, which are attached, were presented by duly qualified andi
authorized representatives of the Industry complying with statutory,:.i

In accordance with customary procedure, all complaints received::.
were given careful consideration and all statutory and regulatory
requirements were complied with.
PROVISIONS OF THE AMENDMENTS

1. The first Amendment proposed is an Amendment for the pur-
pose of clarifying the definition of the Industry and for the purpose
of definitely including producers of Cellulose Acetate Yarn in the
Code.
2. An Amendment setting up Administrative provisions in the
Code so that the Industry can provide itself with a Legally eoni-
stituted and effective Code Authority for administration of the Code

FINDINGS

The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said Amend-
ments to said Code having found as herein set forth and on the basis
of all the proceedings in this matter:
I find that:
(a) The Amendments to said Code and the Code as amended a"re"I
well designed to promote the policies and purposes of Title I of the -S
National Industrial Recovery Act including the removal of obstruc- -i
tion to the free flow of interstate and foreign commerce which tend ii'
to diminish the amount thereof, and will provide for the general i'
welfare by promoting the organization of Industry for the purp.iose i,
of cooperative action among trade groups, by inducing and mainm-
taining united action of labor and management under adequate got-.I;
ernmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair competi-
tive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the i
present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue re-
stri6tion of production (except as may be temporarily required), by ::;
increasing the consumption of industrial and agricultural products!
(2)


.. .....









i't.o.ugh increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving un-
Ai :ii:iployment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
rehabilitating industry.
: (b) The Code as Amended complies in all respects with the perti-
i'nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limita-
!ti'Bon Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7, and
sectionctin (b) of Section 10 thereof.
: (c) The Rayon and Synthetic Yarn Producer's group, which con-
Isists of one member from each unit in the Industry, is truly repre-
..sentative of the Industry and has applied for or consents to these
iA :mendments.
S (d) The Amendments and the Code as Amended are not designed
0i tb and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
.' (e) The Amendments and the Code as Amended are not designed
i, to and will not eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not
discriminate against them.
S 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,
.. HUGH S. JOHNSON,
Administrator.
