to diminish the amount thereof, and will provide for the general
wefare by promoting the organization of industry for the purpose
of coo~perative action of labor and management under adequate gov-
ernmental sanction and supervision. by eliminating unfair competi-
tive practices, by promoting the fullest utilization of the present
productive capacity of industries, by avoiding uindue restriction of
production (exicpt as may be temporarily required), by increasing
the consumpltio nl of. industrial aInd agricultural products through
2ncreasmng purchasing power, by reducling and relieving unemnploy-
.ment, by improvingr standards of labor, and by otherwise rehabili-
(b) Thei Cod as odified complies in all respects with theper
tinent provisionls of said TCitle of said Act, including without limni-
tation sub-section (a) of Se~ctio~n 3, suib-section (a) of Section 7 and
sub-section (b) of Section 10 ther~eof.
(c) Tlhe Codle empowe~rs the Code Authority to present th~e afore-
said mod,~ifilention on behalf of thle indlustry as a whole.
(d) Thle mod~tifientionl and thle Cod~e as modified are not designed
to and will not p~ermlit mo1nopoUlies~ or monpol)0istic praBcticeUs .
(e) The modification and the Code as modified are not designed
to and will not eliminated or oppress small enterprises and will not
operate to discrimiinate against theml.
(f) Those engaged in other steps of the economic process have
not been deprived~ of the right to be heard prior to appr~oval of said
For these reasons, therefore, I have approved this modification.
