Fair notice of opportunity to file objectiocns to this proposed ametnd-
mIenit was given to all interested parties.
This nmlendmlentt is dlranv up and has been proposed in necordance
with Office Memior~andcumi No. 22e8, datedl June 7, 1934. It, is intended
to permiit the prohibition, in times of emnergency, of the sale of

the basis of the pr~octeedings i~n this matter:
I find that:
(a2) The amlendlment to said Code and t'he Code as amended are
well decsignead to promlote the policies andc purposes of Title I of the
National Industr~ial Recovery Act including the r~emoval of obstrue-
tionsj to the fr~ee flow of interstate and foreign commerce wFhich tend
to diminish, the amolunt th-ereof and w~ill provide for the general
wellfare byv promotngtj the organization of industry for the purpose
of coope'ative action of labor andc management, under adequate
governmlentall sanction and supervision, Iy ehmninatinlg unfair com~-
petitive practices, by prom-oting the ful est possible utilization of
the present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding ~undue
restriction of production (except as may be temiporarily requiredd,
by increasing the conisumption of industrial and agricultural prod-
ucts throughrl incresi;ng purclrhasing power, by reduciirng and relieving
u nemp Iloym Ie nt, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
(b) The Codte as amlendedd complies in all respects with thle perti-
nent provision of saidl Title of said Act., including without limitation
sub-se~ction (a) of Section 3, sub-section (a) of Section 7, and sub-
section (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) TIlhe Cod'e empowers thre Code Authority to present the afore-
said amiendmenti on behalf of the industry as a whole.
(d) The amlendment 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 oper-
ate to discriminate against them.
REPORT' TO THE PRESIDENT
(f) Those engaged in other steps of the erconom-ic process have not
been deprived of t~he right to be heard pr1ior to approval of said
I believe the amnendlment to be fair to labor, to th~e consumer, and to
the indlustrly, and for these reasons, therefore, I have approved this
