REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT


The PRESIDENT,
The White Ho'use.
SIR: On August 19, 1933, you approved a Code of Fair Compe-
tition for the Lumber and Timber Products Inldu-trie-.
This is a report on Lumber Code Authority Amendment Number
87, the public hearing on which was conducted in Washinigton, D. C.,
beginning on April 3, 1934, in accordance with the provisions of the
National Industrial Recovery Act.
The Amendment contemplates the revision of portions of fair
trade practices embodied in Schedule B" of the Lumber and
Timber Products Industries Code by the addition of the fair trade
practices for the Red Cedar Shingle Division.
This Amendment proposes to make mandatory several of the pro-
visions of simplified practice recommendation R16-29 and commer-
cial standard CS31-33 of the Bureau of Standards which forbid the
manufacture and sale of substandard shingles.
It is to be noted that the shingle imalniifacturers of British
Columbia in their agreement with the State Department relative to
shingles exported into the United States from Canada have agreed
to abide by the Bureau of Standards' regulations and it is felt that
the American shingle manufacturers should also be similarly re-
.tricted. At the present time the bulk of shingles manufactured in
the United States are im:anufactiurel in accordance with the above
mentioned requirements.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to us on said Amend-
ment to said Code having found as herein set forth and on the
basis of all the proceedings in this matter:
We 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 including and
mintaintining united action of labor and management under adequate
governmental sanction and supervision, by elmininating unfair com-
pet itive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the
present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue restric-
tions of productions (except as may be temporarily required), by
increasing the consumption of industrial and agricultural products
through increa-aing purchla-ing 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
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, we have approved this Amendment to
this Code.
For the National Industrial Recovery Board:
W. A. HARRIMAN,
A dminh istrative Officer.
DECEMBER 18, 1934.

LUMBER AND TIMBER PRODUCTS INDUSTRY

(b) Red Cedar Shingles thinner than 5/2", measured at the butt
end, and shorter than 16" shall not be packed, shipped, sold, listed
or offered for sale.
