LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL


The PRESIDENT,
The White House.
Sm: This is a report on an amendment to the Code of Fair Compe-
tition for the Paper and Pulp Industry. Your Order dated Novem-
ber 17, 1933, approving said Code, provided in part that within 90
days after the effective date of said Code, a public hearing should
be held for the purpose of determining the adequacy of the minimum
wages established in said Code, after which a report and recom-
mendation should be submitted to you for further order.
Pursuant to such provision public hearings were held in Washing-
ton, D. C. on February 13, 1934. Thereafter, the Industry, through
the Paper Industry Authority, assented to the proposed amendment.
The Deputy Administrator has submitted a report and recommenda-
tions, which are attached hereto and included herein by reference.
The proposed amendment will increase by two (2) cents per hour
the minimum wage of all laborers, mechanical workers and artisans,
except female employees in the Southern zone; delete the present
provisions respecting minimum wages of other employees, ranging
from $12.00 to $14.50 per week according to population of the cities
in which plants are located and substitute minima of $14.00, $15.00
and $16.00 per week for such employees in the Southern, Central and
Northern Zones, respectively; and delete a provision permitting sub-
minimum wages equal to the rates paid on July 15, 1929 but not less
than 90% of the minimum rates.
The Deputy Administrator, in his final report on said amendment,
having found as herein set forth, and on the basis of all the pro-
ceedings in this matter:
The Board finds 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 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 purpose of
cooperative action of labor and management under adequate gov-
ernmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair com-
petitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization 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 agricultural prod-
ucts 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 Paper Industry Authority to present
and assent to the 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 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
Amendment.
For these reasons, therefore, the Board recommends approval of
this Amendment to said Code.
For the National Industrial Recovery Board:
W. A. HARIMa N,
Administrative Officer.
FEBRUARY 4, 1935.
