.This amendment deletes existing Section 8 of the Trade Practices
Governing the Merchandi.ing of the Products of the Cotton Thread

This new Sect ion cla rifles the former provision governing the dis-
tributionL of .samples of cotton thread and its purpose is to prevent
the giving of sampless of thread by members of the Industry as an

prevailing in the Industry concerning the distribution -of samples.

the gei!t:ail -welfare by )promoting the organization of industry for
the purpose of cooperative action among trade groups, by inducing
and mi!aiiitainingi united action of labor and management under ade-
qu(tie governmental .saiintion and supervision, by eliminating unfair
competitive practices, by promoting the fullest (possible utilization of
the prI-'e-it productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue
restrirttion of production (except as: may be temporarily required),
by incre;I-ing the consumption of industrial and agricultural prod-
ucts through iiicrea'sing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving
unemployment, by improving the standards of labor and by other-
wise rehabilitating industry;
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the per-
tinent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without linita-
tion Subsection (a) of Section 3, Sub-ection (a) of Section 7, and
Suiibcition (b) of Section 10 thereof;
(c) The Code empowers the Code Authority to present the afore-
said ainwiindl'-nt on behalf of the Ilndustry as a whole.

ate to dikeriiainate gains-t them.

For these ren;i.-oil tiis amendment has been approved.
