se~ntatives of the indiustryT, comnplying w~ith the staztutory .reqir~e-
melnts, said to r~11epesent over 85%0 by volume and 50%0 by number

FIN DINS ;-

The Dleputay~ Administrator in his final report to~lme on said Code
having~ found~ as herein set forth and on the basis of all the pro-
coedc~inlg; in this matter:
I .findt that:

purpos>0es of Title I of the N~ational Indus~tr~idl Recovery Act, in-
clud~ing removal of o~bstr~c~tions to thet fr~ee flow7 of interstate andlr
-foretign collnuneree which tend to dlimintish the amount thereof and
will provide for t~he general welfare by promoting the orga~nizationl
of industry for thtte purpose of c~cooperative ntlc'ionl am1ong1 the trade
groups, by inducing and manilintining united action of labor and
malnagemre nt unlderl adequate govrernmnlltall functionss and super-
visions, byr ehinunatingi unfair compllletitive p-ract~ices, byv plcllromting
the fulles;t possible utilization of the prese~tnt productive capacity of
industries, by avoiding undue restriction of production (exce-pt as
may be temporarily required), by increasing~ the consumption of
inddustrial and agl~riculturan l products through inlcr~encing lUnt~l~~ --hns n
po~er, by reducing and relieving unemployment, by unprovmng
standards of labor, and by otheriv we rehabililitaiting, industry.
(b) Said Industry normally employs not more than 50.000 eml-
ployrees. anld is not c~las-ified by me as a major indn try.l3
(c.) Thle Code as appr~ovet d complies in all respects with thec per-
tinenlt. proc.visions of said Title of said A~ct, including without lim-
itation Subsectionl (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7,
and1C Surctl~~'ionl (b) of Section. 10 thereof ; and that the applicant
associationl is an industriall association, truly representative of the
afor~esnidT industry; and that said association imposes no int-quitable
restrictions on admission to mrembershpil threrein.
(d) The Code is ntot detsignetd to and will not permit monopol0~0ies
or mnonopolistic prac~tic~es.
(e) The Code is not tfesignled to and will not elimlinate or oppress
small e~nterprises and will not oper-1ate to disjciirimiate against them.
(f) Those er~rngaged in other steps of! the ec~onormic pr~oce~ss have
not been dleprived of the right to be heard prior t~o appr~ovnl of
