BY
PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT





Executive Order

An application having been made by the Lumber Code Authority
pursuant to and in full compliance with the provisions of Title I of
the National Industrial Recovery Act, approved June 16, 1933, for
amendment of the Code of Fair Competition for the Lumber and
Timber Products Industries, as heretofore approved by me, and for
the modification of my approval of said Code of Fair Competition

istratorr having rendered his report recommending the granting of

National Industrial Recovery Act, approved June 16, 1933, and
otherwise, do adopt and approve the report of the Administrator
recommending the granting of the aforesaid application, and do order
that the Code of Fair Competition for the Lumber and Timber Prod-
ucts Industries, as approved by me on August 19, 1933, be amended

NOVEMIBER 22, 1933.
The PRESIDENT,
The TY hite House.
Sm: UTnder the Code of Fair Competition for t~he Lumber and
Timber Products Industries, as approved by you on August 19, 1933,
the Lumber Code Auithority has submitted Amendments creating the
"' Broom and MaIp Handle Division." This is a report of the hear-
ing on thle application of the Broom and Mfop Handle MIanufacturing
Industry to be included under the Code, conducted in Washington
on October 20, 1933, in accor~dance wilth the provisions of the
National Industrial Recover~y Act.
Final Amendment No. 3 an1d final Amendment No. 4 submitted are
included and attached.
The Amendmnents submitted herewith do not involve any new
p~rincip~les and are designed solely to provide an administrative divi-
sion under the Code for broom, mnop, sweeper, and sweeping brush
hatndle manufacturers. By p~roposingr that the jurisdiction of the
Code be extended to include the Broom and Miop Handle M~anu-
facturing9 Industry, the National Handlle Manufacturers' Associa-
tion, representing t~he Industry, hias concurred in all its provisions.
The close relationship of the Indlustry to the Lum~ber and Timber
Products Industries was established at t~he hearing. Factories pro-
duici~ng so-calledl long cleaning device handles made of wood are
located almost of necessity in sawmill towns. It was stated that at-
least 60%l of the known production occurred in factories operated
in conjunction with sawmills. It was pointed out also that labor in
handle factories and in sawmills is interchangeable.
WAGES

The minimum wages proposed ar~e the same as those established
for the several regions of the United States defined in the Code.
In each region the proposed minimum representss an increase over
former average rates, and substantial increases over former mini-
mum rates. Anticipating the approval of its application to become
a Division under the Code, the group represented at thle hearing
~hePadopted voluntarily the Code minimums, and adjusted wages of
th igher-paid classes accordingly on August 22, 1933, when the
wage provisions of the Code became effective.
HOURS

The maxrimumz hours of employment proposed are 40 per week.
Tolerance for seasonal, as provided for certain operations under the
Code, does not extend to this proposed division. This shorter week,
already adopted, has provided some immediate reemployment of








labor and it was shown that w~ith only a moderate recovery in
business volumes a saltisfactory further absorption would occur.

ADMINISTRATION

The National Hanndle M~anulfacturers' Association is to be desig-
nated as the agency of the Lumber Code Auth~ority to administer
the provisions of t'he Code for this proposed Division. Evidence
that it is prepared to assume this responsib~ility has been submitted.
Pursuant to Article III of the Code, the Lumiber Code Authority
reserves t~he power and du~ty to enforce the provisions of the Code
and to establish andl maintain the representative character of its
designated agency.
EFFECT OF THE AMIENDMIENTS

I believe that. the Amnendmnents provide an effective means of
bringing this Industry under a Basic Code of F~air Compietitioni, the
mandatory provisions of which a representative group, of the
Industry 'has applied to itself voluntarily! andi that th~e aimn of the
National Industrial Recoverly Act. w\ill be servedl.

FINDINGS

The Administrator finds that:
(a) Amendm~ent N'o. 3 andl Amnendmenit No. 4 as recommended
comply in all respects with the pertinent provisions of Title I of the
Act, including, without limiitation, subsectioni (a) of Section C and
subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof, and that
(b)sio The appict rouip imposes no inequitable restrictions on
admisio tomembrshp herein and is truly representative of the
Broom and Af~op Handle M~anufacturing Industry; and that
(c) Amendment No. 3 and Amendmnent No. 4 as recommended
are not designed to promote monopolies or to eliminate or oppress
small enterprises and will not operate to discriminate against them,
and will tend to effectu~ate the policy of Title I of the National In-
dustrial Recovery Act.
It is recommended, therefore, that Amendment No. 3 and Amend-
ment No. 4 to the Code of Fair Competition for the Lumber and
Timber Product's Industries, as heretofore approved by you, be
adopted.
Respectfully,
HUGH S. JOHNSON,
Administrator.
