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
governmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair com-
petitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of
the present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue
restriction of production (except as may be temporarily required),
by increasing the consumption of industrial and agricultural prod-
ucts through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and reliev-
ing unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and by other-
wise rehabilitating industry.

pertinent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without
limitation Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Sct.ion 7

said amendment on behalf of the Industry as a whole.
