well designed to promote the policies and purposes of Title I of the
National Industrial Recovery Act, including removal of obstructions
to the free flow of interstate and foreign commerce which tend to
diminish the amount thereof, and will provide for the general wel-
fare by promoting the organization of industry for the purpose of
cooperative action among trade groups, by inducing and maintaining
united action of labor and management under adequate governmental
sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair competitive prac-
tices, 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 products through
increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving unemploy-
ment, by improving the standards of labor and by otherwise
rehabilitating industry;
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limitation
Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7, and Sub-
section (b) of Section 10 thereof;
(c) The Code empowers the Code Authority to present the afore-
said amendment on behalf of the Industry as a whole.
(d) The amendment and the Code as amended are not designed
to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The amendment and the Code as amended are not designed
to and will not eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not
operate to discriminate 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
amendment.
For these reasons this amendment has been approved.
For the National Industrial Recovery Board:
W. A. HARRIMAN,
Administrative Oficer.
DECEMBER 27, 1934.
