TEXTILE BAG INDUSTRY

As Approved on December 23, 1933
S. BY

PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT

.-



Executive Order

An application having been duly made by the Textile Bag In-
dustry Control Committee under date of November 13, 1933, pur-
suant to and in full compliance with the provisions of Title I of
the National Industrial Recovery Act, approved June 16, 1933, and
pursuant to Article VIII, Section (b) of the Code of Fair Com-
.petition for the Textile' Bag Industry, approved September 18,
1933, for my approval of modifications of said Code proposed in
said application, and full hearings have been held thereon and the
Administrator, under date of December 14, 1933, having rendered
his report containing an analysis of said modifications together with
his recommendations and findings with respect thereto, and the
Administrator having found as set forth in said report, that the
said modifications comply in all respects with the pertinent provi-
sions of Title I of said Act and that the requirements of clauses
(1) and (2) of :subsection (a) of section 3 of said Act have been
met:
SNOW, THEREFORE, I, Franklin D. Roosevelt, President of the
United States, pursuant to the authority vested in me by Title I of
the National Industrial Recovery Act, approved June 16, 1933, and
otherwise, do adopt and approve the report, recommendations, and
findings of the Administrator and do order that said modifications
of the Code of Fair Competition for the Textile Bag Industry be,
and they hereby are approved and made a part of said Code.
FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT.

DECEMBER 14, 1983. :
The PRESIDENT, .
The TVhite House.
SIR: This is a report on the Hearing of certain modifications of ai'
the Code of Fair Competition for the Textile Bag Industry sub-
mitted by the Control Committee of the Textile Bag Manufacturers
Association. A
This Hearing was conducted in the Department of Commerce
Building, Washington, D.C., on November 23, 1933. Every person
who requested an appearance was heard in accordance with the
statutory and regulatory requirements.
The proponents of the modifications are the duly authorized mem-
bers of the Industry, complying with the statutory requirements, as
representing eighty (80%) percent of the capacity of the Industry.
The first modification, copy of which is attached herewith, calls
for a clarification of the working hours during the peak period of
the Industry, as set forth in Article III, Section (a) of the Code.
It intends to make clear that the forty-eight (48) hour week provi-
sion during a period of eight (8) weeks in any one year does not
apply to individuals as such but to groups of employees in any one
department as such.
The second modification deals with the Code Authority called the
Control Committee, for the Textile Bag Industry as established in
Article VI, Section (a) of the Code. At the time the original Code
was approved, there were a number of concerns engaged in the Tex-
tile Bag Industry who were not members of the Textile Bag Associa-
tion, but in the selection of the Control Committee, representation
was given to the nonmembers of the Textile Bag Association. Since
the approval of the Textile Bag Manufacturers Code, many manufac-
turers have joined the Association so that it now constitutes and
represents in its membership close to one hundred (100%) percent
of the Industry.
There were no objectors to these amendments. "
I find that:
The provisions of the Code, as amended, are not designed to pro-
mote monopolies or to oppress small enterprises and will not operate
to discriminate against them and will tend to effectuate the policy
of Title I of the National Industrial Recovery Act. ..
It is recommended, therefore, that the amendments to the Code
of Fair Competition of the Textile Bag Industry be adopted.
immediately. .*
Respectfully,
HUon S. JOHNSONs, I;
Administrator.
