Thre Shoe Shank Ma~nufacturing Industry, being truly reprlesenta-
tive of this division of the F~iabricated Mectal Products Manufar~ctur-
ing and 3IetalI Finishingr and Metal Coatings Industry, has elected to
avail itself of the option of submitting a, Supp.]~lementuryr Code of

the basis of all the proceedings in thiis maltter:
I find that:
S(a) Said Supplemenntary Code is well dlesignedc to promote the poli-
cies andl purposes of Title I of the Nationial Indlustrial Recovcry Act,
including remvatl of obstrulc~tions~ to the frece flow of interstate andl

of industry: for thle purpose of coop~erative act'ionl among the trade
groups, by inducin~r and miainitaining,( united actioni of labor and man-
agemient u ndler alequate governmental11~ll sa1ctionls and supervision,
by liminatingr unfair competitive prnetiCesL; by promoting the fullest
possible utilization of the present pr~odluctive capacity of industries,
by avoiding undue restriction of p~roductionl exceptt as muy be temp~o-
rar~ily requil~red), by inlcreasing the c~onsumptionio of indu~strial and
