The existing provlisioi~n of Ar~ticle VI, Section 7 of the Code for
said Industry, is entir-el~y ilnadeqiuate in view of Exsecutive Order
6678 and ALdmnin isitrativec Order1 X-36, and it. is therefore evident

NSational TlIndustial Recovery Act includling t~he removal of obsrtrue-
tions to the flree flow of intersYtate and foreign commerce which tend
to diminish the amount thlereof, andc will pr1ovide for the general wvel-
fare by promlotinga the or~ganization of indlustry~ for. the purpose of
cooperaltiv~e action amnong trae rops, by inducing and mlaintaininga
unitedt notion of labor and ma-nag~,ement. uinder adequate governmental
sancltion and siupervision, by chminanting unfair competitive pr~actices,
b~y promotinig the fullest possible utilization of t~he present pr~odue-
tivue cupne~ity7 of the inldustr~ie, byL~ avoiding~ undue111 restrLictions of
produc:tionl exceptt. as may be temnporarily requiredc), by increasingr
the consumllption of industrial and agricultural p~rodlucts through in-
cr~easing p~urchasing p~ower, by redlucing and relieving unemnploy-

(b) The Code as amelndedl comiplies in all1 respects with the per-
t~inent pr1ovisions of saidi~ Title of saiid Act., including without limita-
tion Sulb:;ction (a) of Section :3, Suibsection (a) of Section 7, and
Suibsection (b) of Section 10 ther~eof.
(c) The amelnd menclt anmd th~e Code as amended are not designed
to and will not permit monlopojlclies~ or monopolist~ic practices.
