The purpose and effect of the modification are to have the Code

proved on M~ay 26, 1934, to authorize the Code Authority to submit
a budget and method of assessment upon which funds shall be con-
tributed by members of the Industry.
The Deputy Adlminist~rator in his final report to me on saidl modi-
fication of said C'ode having found as herein set forth and on the
basis of all the proceedings in this matter:

well designed to promote the policies and purposes of Title I of th~e
National Industrial Recovery Act including the removal of ob-
structions t~o the free flow of Interstate and foreign commerce wrhIch
tend to diminish thle amount thereof, and w~ill provide for the gen-
eral wFFelfare by promlotinga the organization of lindustry for the pur-
pose of cooperative action among trade groups, by inducing and
mamitainingr united2 action of labor and mlanag~ement under adequate
governmental sanction andr suipervison, by eliminating unfair co~m-
pe"titive practices, by promocting the fullest possible utilization of the
present productive capacity oof the industries, byF avoiding undue
restrictions of production (e xcept as may be temporarily r~equired),
by increasing the consumption of industrial and agricultural products
through increasing purchasifrng powr, by reduciiing and relieving un-
empl~loyment, by imp~roving standards of labor, and by otherwise
re habhili t at ing industry.
(b) The Code as modified~ complies in all respects with the per-
tinent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limita-
tion Sulbsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7 and
Subsection (b) of Sect~ion 10 thereof.
(c) TIhe Codce emp~owers the GCode Authority to present the afore-
said mr-odificantion on. behalf of the industry as a whole.
(d) The mlodification and the Code as modified are not designed
to and will not permiit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) T'he modcl~ icfitionl and the Code as modified are not designed to
and will nort eliminate o~r oppress small enterprises and will not
operate to discriminate against them.
(f) Those engaged in other steps of the economic process have not
been derprivred of the right to be heard prior to approval of said
For these reasons, therefore, I have approved this modification.
