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 the Amendments which
are inclluded and attached.
This is a report of the Hearing on the foregoing Amendments,
conducted at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D. C., on Novem-
ber 23, 1933, in accordance with the provisions of the National Indus-
trial Recovery Act.
These Amendments establish an Administrative Division for the
manufacturers of wood crossarms, and were presented by the East
Coast, Inland, and West Coast Crossarm Associations claiming to
repri-elet 66% of the production of the industry. The minimum
wages are the same as those prescribed in the Code and a forty hour
week is established. The proponents believe that these Amendments
will stabilize the industry and eliminate unfair trade practices, which
are now prevalent.
In 1929 there were approximately 500 employees in the industry;
in 1932 the number was estimated at 150. The Amendments are
expected to substantially increase this number.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said
Amendi iinjits to said Code having found as herein set forth and on
the basis of all the p1rc':c dings in this matter;
I find that:
(a) The Amendiments 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 r(e-ni,\'al 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 r action among trade groups, by inducing and main-
taining united action of labor and mnina!rement under adequate
governmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair com-
petitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the
pri-ecnt productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue restric-
tions of production (except as may be temporarily required), by
incre;iing the consumption of industrial and agricultural products
through incrai-ing pur1ihaoing 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 limitation
Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7 and Sub-
section (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(2)






3

(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 Anmendinents 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 -aid
Amendments.
For these reasons, therefore, I have approved these Amendments
to the Code.
Respe. fully,
HUGH S. JOHNSON,
Adm ins;trator.

REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT The PRESIDE 'T, The vV hite House. Sm: 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 ha,s submitted the Amendments which are included and attached. This is a report of the Hearing on the foregoing Amendments, conducted at the 1\fayflower Hotel in ,v ashington, D. C., on N ovember 23, 19u3, in accordance with the provisions of the National Industrial Recovery Act. These Amendments estab li s h an Admini trative Division for the mRnufacturers of wood crossarms._,, and were presented by the Ea.st Coa t, Inland, and vVe t Coast Cros arm Associat ion s claiming to repre ent 66 a of the production of the industry. The minimum wages are the same as tho,se prescribed in the Code and a forty hour week is e tablished. The proponents believe that these Amendments will stabilize the industry and eliminate unfair trade practices, which are now prevalent. In 1929 there were approximately 500 emp l oyees in the industry; in 1932 the number was estjmated at 150. The Amendments are expected to sub,stantially increase this number. The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on aid Amendments to aid Code having found as herein set forth and on the ba is of all the proceedings in thi matter; I find that: (a) The Amendments to aid Code and the Code as amended are well de igned to promote the policies and purpo es of Title I of the National Industrial Recovery Act including the removal of obstruction 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 f r the purpo e of cooperative a -tion among trade groups, by inducing and main t.aininounited action of labor and manao-ement under adequate governmental anction and upervi ion, by eliminating unfair com petitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the pre ent productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue re tric tions of production ( except as may be temporarily required), by increasing the on umption of industrial and agricultural products through increasino purchasing power, by reducing and r e lieving unemployment, by improving standard of labor, and by otherwi e rehabilitating industry. (b) The Code as amended complies in all re pects with the pertinent provi ions of said Title of said Act, including without limitation Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7 and Sub section (b) of Se tion 10 thereof. (2)

( d) Th Amen lment and the ode as amend d are not designed to and ,vill not permit monopoli . or monopoli tic practices. ( e) The Am ndm nt an 1 the de a amended are not de igned to and will not eliminate or oppre mall enterpri es and will not operat to di criminat ao-ain t th m. (f) Tho e eno-agecl in other tep of the economic proc have not been lepriYed of the right to be heard prior to approval f said Amendm nt.
