REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT


The PRESIDENT,
The White House.
SIR: The Public Hearing on an amendment to the Code of Fair
Competition for the Cotton Garment Industry as proposed by the
Code Authority for this Industry was conducted on Monday, Feb-
ruary 19, 1934 in Room 2062, Department of Commerce Building,
Washington. D.C. Every person who requested an appearance was
fairly heard in public in accordance with the regulations of the
National Recovery Administration. There were present duly au-
thorized representatives of the Code Authority and other representa-
tive members of the Industry.
The Code of Fair Competition for the Cotton Garment Industry,
approved November 17, 1933, contained no label clause. The Code
Authority for this Industry submitted an amendment providing
such a clause.
At the Hearing. the Code Authority recommended a change in the
proposed amendment concerning the effective date thereof. Instead
of March 1. they recommended that it be changed to a date to be
determined by the Code Authority inasmuch as the date of approval
was uncertain.
Several prison labor representatives were present, but are on record
-as having no objection whatever to the amendment. There were no
other objections at the Hearing.
In final form this amendment has been approved by the Labor
Advisory Board. Industrial Advisory Board, Consumers' Advisory
Board, and the Legal Division of the Recovery Administration.
The Code Authority has indicated its approval of this amendment
on behalf of the Industry.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said
amendment to said Code, having found as herein set forth and on
the basis of all the proceedings in this amendment:
I find that:
(a) The amendment 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
obstructions 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 maintaining united action of labor and management under
adequate governmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating
unfair competitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utili-
zation 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 agricul-








tural 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 per-
tinent 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.
(c) The Code empowers the Code Authority to present the afore-
said 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 enterprise, 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
amendment.
For these reasons, this amendment has been approved.
Respectfully,
HUGH S. JOHNSON,
Administrator.
March 10, 1934.
