cooperative action of labor and nwim,1pgem-'itl under adequate go vern-
mental sanction and suprvision, by eliminating unfair competitive
pl;r'tices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the present
productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue restriction of

the consumption of industrial and agricultural products through
increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving unemploy-
ment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise rehabilitat-
(b) The Code as auii-ndd complies in all rI'eplct, with the perti-

ment on behalf of the Industry as a whole.

For these reasons this ineindmeunt has been approved.
