tainingr united action of labor and management tmder adequate gov-
ernmental sanction and supervision~s, by eliminating unfair competi-
tive practices, by promoting t~he fullest possible utilization of the
present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue restric-
ion 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 un-
employmnent, by improving standards of labor, and by othierwise
(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.
