The PRESIDENT,
The White House.
SmI: This is a report of the Amendments to the Code of Fair
Competition for the Glass Container Industry to permit certain
changes in the provisions as to hours. These Amendments are sub-
mitted for Executive approval in accordance with Section 3, Article
VIII of said Code as approved on October 3, 1933.

PROVISIONS AS TO IIOURS

The labor provisions in the Code have been amended by limiting
watchmen to nmaxinmunl working hours not in excess of ninety-six
(96) hours in any two (2) week period, and not more than six (6)
days in any seven (7) day period.
Heretofore, watchmen have not been limited as to daily or weekly
hours under this Code, but were paid at the rate of time and one half
for all hours in excess of forty (40) hours per week. Since watch-
men are usually crippled, or superannuated employees, objection to
paying time and one half resulted in no overtime above forty (40)
hours per week, with consequent reduced wages, and in some cases to
actual dispensing with watchmen. The provision in the amended
Code will correct this condition.

FINDINGS

The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said
amendments 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 amendments 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-
ernnmental 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-
tion of produi-tion (except as may be temporarily required), by
increasing the consumption of industrial and agricultural products
through increasing purchasing power, by reducing an(d relieving un-
employment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
rehabilitating industry.








(b) The Code as a mended 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
Sub.-ection (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Glass Container A.-ociation was and is an industrial
association truly representative of the aforesaid Inldulstry and that
said association imposed and impo-e,; no inequitable restrictions on
admission to membership therein and has applied for or consents to
these amen]dmenti.
(d) The amen(dments- and the Code as amendiled are not (ldigned
to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The amendments and the Code as amended are not designed
to and will not eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not
operate to dis.riminnte 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
amendments.
For these reasons, these amendments have been approved by me.
Respectfully,
HUGH S. JOHNSON,
Administrator.
