tion by becoming a party to said Code.

Any provisions included in this Code, and such other provisions

nated as changes in circumstances and experience may indicate. It is
contemplated that supplementary provisions to this Code or additional
codes will be submitted to the President from time to time to prevent
unfair competition in prices and other destructive and unfailr com-
petitive ppracticesl and to effectuate the other policies of Title 1 of the
National Inustrial Recovery Act; and it is further contemplated to
proceed to formulate rules of fair trade practice forthwith, whicb, shall
be grouped together with other similar provisions if and when formu-








lated and made part of this Code, whereby such provisions may have
complete separation in every way so that the scope of the various od~es~
of the manufacturers of beauty culture articles, equipment aind/~or
supplies; of the wholesale distributors thereof; of the schools for the
teaching of beauty culture; of other retailers or practitioners in the
same general or related industries, do not unreasonably invade each
other.
We now declare the following to be unfair trade practices:
(a) To render ser-vice or sell merchandise below the average reason-
able cost of production of such service, or of such merobandise, plus a
profit, of fifteen percentum (15%0) according to a standard maethod: of
costing which shall be provided by the National Control Co9mmttee
and adapted by each District Control Committee to conditions which
may be peculiar to that particular District.
(b) For a school to make a charge for beauty culture work done
therein, except that such school make such charge for work done only~
in a special department which is entirely separate from that devoted.
to the teaching of beauty culture t~o students, and further excepted
that said department wherein work is done for the public for pay, shal
be considered a beauty shop and shall automatically be placed under
the government of this Code.
(c) For a school, by advertising device or design, or by oral repre~-
sentat~ion, to conceal its identity as an institute of learning; or to
neglect to make it~s status as a. school apparent either by advertising
device or design, or oral representation, and the posting of conspic-
uous signs on or about the premises, whereby a prudent member of
the public. would have inadequate means of knowing that the work
performed or the service given therein is of a clinical nature only:
Provided, howLevler, That a beauty culture school may maintain a
department, for expert graduate service as provided in paragraph b ?
immediately above and placing itself under the government of this
Code.
ARTICLE XI~. GENERAL

No provision of this Code shall be interpreted to apply in any
manner as to:
(1) Promote monopolies;
(2) Permit or encourage any unfair competition;
(3) Eliminate or oppress sitrall enterprises;
(4) Discriminate against small'enterprises.
