te~nd to diminish the amnounlt thereof, and will provide for the general
welfare byr promoting the organization of industry for the purpose
of cooperative action of laboor and mannagemntrt under adequate gov-
ernmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair comp~et.i-
tive practices, by promoting the fullest possible ultilizat~ion of the
present productive capacity of industries, b~y avoiding; ulndue restric-
tion of production (except as may be temnporalrilly requiired), by in-
creasing the consumption of industrial and agricultural products
through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving un-
employment, by improving standards of labor, and by other wise
(b) The Code as amended complies in all re~spects wiith the per-
tinent provision of said Title of said Act, including without limita-
tion sub-section(a) of Section 3, sub-section (a) of Section 7 and
sub-section (b) oSeit on 10 hereof.
