REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT


The PRESIDENT,
The White House.
SIR: Under the Code of Fair Competition for the Lumber and
Timber Products Industries as approved by you on August 19,
1933, the Lumber Code Authority has submitted Amendment No.
52 which is included and attached.
This is a report on said Amendment, hearing on which was con-
ducted in Washington, D.C., on March 27 and 30, 1934, in accord-
ance with the provisions of the National Industrial Recovery Act.
When the Code was written the principle of past performannce
was clearly considered as evidenced by the provisions embodied
therein for the control of production through allocation. The
interim Article was not intended to be permanent and the purpose
of this Amendment is to give a permanent method of allocation to
those Divisions and Subdivisions, which by a two-thirds vote wish
to continue on the hourly basis. This Amendment in providing a
permissive method of allocation on an hourly basis will permit
Divisions and Subdivisions to relate their production to a labor
program and to determine a minimum work-week for labor. The
majority of the witnesses appearing at the Hearing favored this
Amendment, and I would point out that the Amendment is not com-
pulsory in its application unless authorized by a two-thirds majority
vnte in any Division or Subdivision. The request for administrative
authority on the part of the Code Authority is justified by the infor-
mation and evidence which has been submitted.
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 general
welfare by promoting the organization of industry for the purpose
of cooperative action among trade groups, by inducing and main-
taining united 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-
tions of production (except as may be temporarily required), by in-
creasing 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 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 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, I have approved this Amendment to
the-Code.
Respectfully,
HuGH S. JOHNSON,
Administrator.
JuNrE 5, 1934.
