REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT


The PRESIDENT,
The White House.
SIR: An application has been duly made pursuant to and in full
compliance with the provisions of Title I of the National Industrial
Recovery Act for certain amendments to the Code of Fair Compe-
tition for the Millinery Industry, and Hearings were conducted on
said amendments in Washington, D.C. on March 13, 1934, in the
Gridiron Room of the Willard Hotel.
Seven proposed amendments were submitted by the Code Au-
thority but Hearings on one of these, namely; that relating to the
inclusion of the manufacture of children's headwear, was postponed
until Monday, March 19, 1934, at the request of the Code Authority
and with the consent of all parties concerned.
The first amendment adds a new Section 5 of Article VI, and
provides that members of the Industry shall be entitled to partici-
pate in and share the benefits of, the activities of the Code Authority
by assenting to and complying with the requirements of the Code
and sustaining their reasonable share of the expenses of its
administration.
The second amendment adds a new subsection (i) to Section 7 of
Article VI, and confers to the Code Authority the power to assess
and collect from members of the Industry an equitable and pro-
portionate payment of the reasonable expenses of maintaining the
Code Authority and its activities.
The third amendment modifies Section 14 of Article VIII, and
prohibits advertising allowances.
The fourth amendment establishes maximum terms of discount
at seven per cent ten days e.o.m.
The fifth amendment modifies Section 13 of Article VIII, and
provides that all goods are to be shipped f.o.b. city of manufacture.
The sixth amendment modifies Section 16 of Article VIII, and
relates to the charges to be made for trade name labels.

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 are
well designed to promote the policies and purposes of Title I of
the National Industrial Recovery Act, including the removal of ob-
structions 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
(2)








purpose of cooperative action among trade groups, by inducing and
maintaining 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
increasing 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 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 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 andmdments 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,
HUGH S. JOHNSON,
Adm rinistrator.
MARCH 24, 1934.
