The Assistant Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on
said Supplement~ary Code having found as herein set forth and on
the basis of all' oroceedingas in this matter:
I find that:
(a) Sa~id Suplenmentary Codel is; we1 ll d fesine to promote the
policies and purposes of Title I of the National Industrial 1Recovery
Act, including remnoval of obstructions to thet fr~ee flow of interstate
and foreign commerce which tend to dliminish the amount thereof
and will provide for th~e general welfare by promoting the organi-
zaztion of industry for the p~urpose~s of cooperative actionr among the
trade groups, by inducing andl maintaining united nation of labor
and anaemet uderadeuate governmentan l sanctions and super-
vian, by aelinanti und nfair competitive pIRactices, by promotm
the fullest possible utilization of the present pr'oductive en~acityo
industries, by avoiding undue restriction of production (except. as
may be temporarily required), by increasingly the consumption of
industrial and agricultural products through increasing purchasing
power, by reducing andt relieving unemployment, by improvingr
standards of labor, a~nd by otherwise rehabilitating industry.
(b) Said Industry normally emiploysi not mnore tha~n 50,000 em-
ployees; and is not classifiedl by~ me as a major industry.
(c) The Supplemientary Code as approved complies in, all respects
with thie pertinent provisions of said Title of said Act, including
without limitation Subsection (at) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of
Section 7, and Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof; and that the
applicant group is an industrial group truly representative of the.
aforesaid Industry; and that said association imposes no inequitable
restrictions on admission to membership therein.
(d) The Supplementary Code is not designed to and will not
permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) Thie Supplemientaryv Code is not. designed to and will niot
eliminate or oppress small enterprises and w~ill not operate to dis-
criminate against them.
(f) Those engaged in other steps of the economic process have not
been dleprivedl of the right to be heard prior to approval of said
For these reasons, therefore, I have approved this Supplemlentary
