The Co-de Authority as hereinafter established shall immediately
make an. investigation of the foregoing hourly rates a.ndl the differ-
ences therein, for the purpose of recommending to the Administrator
an equitable revision of such rates should any' inequity be proved to
After an investigation of wage rates in Arkansas, Oklahomna,
Texas and the County of Dona A~na, New Mexcico, thle Code Aut~hority
has come to the conclusion that the situation justifies a change in
the wage rates as fixed in Article IV of the Structural Clay Products

tions to the free flow of interstate and foreign commerce~ which tend
to diminilsh the amount thereof, and will provide for thle general
welfare by promoting the organization of indlust~ry for the purpose of
cooperative action among trade groups, byl\ indlucinga and mlaintaining;
united action of labor and management under adequate gorernmlental
sanction and supelrvision, by eliminating unfair competitive practwest
by promuoting the fullest possible utilization of the present productive
capacity of rndustries, by avoiding undue restriction of production
(excetl-t as may be temporarily required), by increasing the consump-
tion of industrial and agricultural products through increasing pur-
chasing~ power, by reducing and relieving unemllploymentt by
imlpr~oving standards of labor, and by otherwise rehabilitating
(b) The Cod~e as modified complies in all1 respects with the perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including wFit~hout Jlmita-
tion. Subisection (a) of Section 3, Subsec~tion (a) of Section 7 and
Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Code empowers the Code Authority to present the afore-
said modc-ification on behalf of the Inldustry as a whole.
(d) The modification and the Code as modified are not designed
to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The modification and the Code as modified are not designed to
and will not eliminate or olppress small enterprises and will not oper-
ate to discriminnate against them.
(f) Those engaged in other steps of the economic process have not
been deprived of the right to be heard prior to approval of saidl
Said modification is accordingly approved.
