tribution of Athletic Goods, as defined in this Supplemental Code.

OTHER PROU7SIONS OF THE CODE

Trhe p-rovisions containing supplemental definitions arie considered
inlclusive~ and accurate.
The Administrative provisions supplementing thle General Code
establish~ a D~ivjiional Code Authority whichl is fairly and adequately
r~eprese;ntative of all the different elements in thie Trade.

ininumemi~ble evils existing inl the Tradle today, and are not considered

FIN DI NGS

Thle D~eputy Administraltor in his final report to me on said Sup-
plemecntal ('ode having found as hierecin set fort.h anid on the basis of
all the proceed~ning in this matter:
I find that

p~olicies and pur~poses of Title I of the National Industrial Recovery
Alct, including remlovall o-f obstructions to the free flow of interstate
andl foreian commerce which tend to diminish th~e amount. thereof,
andl will provide for th~e general welfare by1 promoting the organiza-
tion of industry for the purpose of cooper~ative action amlongg trade.
grou'"Ps, by inducing and maintaniinin united action of labor and
mannag(e mentl under adequate gov-,\ernmuental sanction and supervision,
by elimlinating uinfaliir coipetitive practices_ by promoting the fullest
possible use of the present. productive capacity of industries, by avoid-
ing undule restriction of production (except as may be temporarily
(2)








requilred), b increasingr t~he~ consulmpont of indusztrial a~ndJ agricul-
tural products through increasing purchasing power, by reducing
and relievinga unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and
by ot~herwise rehab)lintnatn industry.
(b) Said Trade normally employs not more than 50,000 employees
and it is not classified by me as a major industry.
(c) The Supplemental Code as approved complies in all respects
with the pertinent prov-isions ofa said Title of said Act, including
without limitation Subsection ( ) of rSection 3, Surbsection (a)o
Section 7 and Subsect~ion (b) of Section 10 thereof; and that the

monopolies or monopolistic practices.

eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not operate to dis-
crimiinate against them.

been deprived of the right to be heard prior to the approval of thi
