REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT


The PRESIDENT,
The White House.
SIR: This is a report on the proposed modification of the Code of
Fair Competition for the Furniture Manufacturing Industry as ap-
proved by you on December 7, 1933. Application was made in this
office under date of December 16, 1933, by the Code Authority for
the Furniture Manufacturing Industry for modification of the pro-
visions of Section 8, Article VIII, of the Code. A public hearing on
the proposed modification of the Code was held in the city of Wash-
ington on December 28, 1933, and full opportunity was given to all
interested parties to appear.
The change proposed is to enable members of the Furniture Indus-
try who manufacture Cedar Chests to maintain a trade practice
which has been in effect for a great many years. As the Furniture
Code was approved, the making of freight differentials by manufac-
turers of Cedar Chests is prohibited. It was not intended by the
sponsors of the Code of Fair Competition for the Furniture Manu-
facturing Industry to impose undue hardships on the manufac-
turers of Cedar Chests and the Code Authority for the Furniture
Manufacturing Industry voted unanimously to present the amend-
ment.
This amendment does not in any way affect the labor provisions
of the Code or anything other than freight allowances to be made
by manufacturers of Cedar Chests.
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 matter:
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 obstruc-
tions to the free flow of interstate and foreign commerce which
tend to diminish the amount thereof, and will provide for the gen-
eral 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 com-
petitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the
present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue re-
striction 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 reliev-
ing unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and by other-
wise rehabilitating industry.








(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the per-
tinent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limi-
tation 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 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.
I believe the amendment to be fair to labor, to the consumer, and
to the industry, and for these reasons, therefore, I approve this
amendment.
Respectfully,
HUGH S. JOHNSON,
Administrator
FBRBUARY 5, 1934.




















AMENDMENT TO CODE OF FAIR COMPETITION FOR THE
FURNITURE MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY

Section 8 of Article VIII of the Code of Fair Competition for
the Furniture Manufacturing Industry, approved December 7, 1933,
shall be and hereby is amended by adding the following:
In order to promote free competition among cedar chest manu-
facturers, freight allowances not greater than the following may be
made by the manufacturers of cedar chests and other cedar storage
pieces:
'" Freight from any factory shipping point to any destination may
be so equalized that the carload freight rate which would be appli-
cable to that shipment will be no greater than the carload rate on
the same shipment if it were made from the nearest point as follows:
Atlanta, Georgia, or from Chicago, Illinois, or from New York, N.Y.
The carload freight rate shall be used in computing all allowances
whether made in carloads or less than carload lots. Where cedar
chests or cedar storage pieces are shipped without crating, the dealer
may be made an allowance not to exceed 500 per crate. This shall
be distinct from, and in addition to any freight allowance. In case
cedar chests are sold from warehouses at points other than where
manufactured, the costs of such warehousing and any handling
incidental thereto shall be added to the factory price."
Approved Code No. 145-Amendment No. 1.
Registry No. 312-1-10.
