pct~ition for the Transpar-ent; M~terials Convcrter Ind~Zustry. Your

petition for tihe Ppr andi Pulp ]Indunstry, pr~ovidedi, in part, that
w~ithlin ninety dayts after the eff'ective date of th~e Code of Fair Com-
petition for the Palper and: Pulp Industry a further hrar~ingsllb
held for the purpose of" determlinfin th~e adequacy of the minimum
wa~ges estanblished in saidl Code, after which a report and recom-
menndation should' be submitted to your for your further order which
should~ have the effect of a condition~ to your approval of said Code.
Because of thle relntionllship between the Paper and Pulp, Industry

in the twos Codes were idlentien. uir~thelr, in vlewr of the pLrovisiont

Inting to wages and" hours of lkabo shtouh! be ameltnded, the~n and ini
that event, such amended provisions shouh1 ajpply: also to the Code
for the Paper Bagr Mannufacturin~ i'ndustr.i
BecauIse o~f theg same relationship, the provision in the Code for the
Transpairent. Mat-erials- C~onrer~tersF ndust~ry with r~espect to wates is
parallel to the wage provision applicable to th~e North~ern Zoine under
the Code of Fair Competition for the Paper BIag Mannufacturing I~n-
dustry. The Code orf ta~ir Co~mpetition for the Tratnspar~ent ate-
rzaols Converters Industry provides in Section (1 of Ar~ticle V thant in
the event ~the anges speediedc fPor thee orthattern Zone in Artficle V,
Section. 1 of the Code for the Paper Bag 10anufacturing Indusltry,
and in A~t~file V, Section 4 are modifiedl, then and i~n that event
such amendedt Dproisions shlrni also applt3y to the Code for th~e Trans-
parent Manterials Conv~erters Industry, and that Sections 1:, 2 anld 5
of Ariticle V of the Transparenlt Matesials' Converters Indulstry Codte
shall be deemed to have been amlendled so as tot conform thlereto.

Bag Alantifatu~ring industry, having been amended, it is now neces-
sary- to amfendd Sections 1, 2, and 5 of Article V of the C~ode for t~he
Transparent Ma~terials C~onverters Industry.
ThCfe effect of the amendment will be to increase by two cents (2d)
per hour the minimum wnges of all employees other than office or
clerical employees, employed in any plant in the Industry or on
work connected. wIith or inlcidenltal to the operations of such plant;
to delete a provision per1mitting sub-mninimnumn wages ba-sedl upon
the rate paid on July 15, 1920, as lowc as 90%0 of the minimum; and
to eliminate a provision fixing the wages of all other employees,
except commission salesmen, at $12.00, $14.00, $14.50, and $15.00 per
week, depending upon the p~opulation of the city in which the plants
may be located and in lieu thereof, to insert a provision fixing the
mimmum wage of all such employees at $16.00 per week.

mngs ma this matter;

eral welfare by promoting t~he organization of industry for the
purpose of cooperative action of labor and management under ade-
quate governmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair
competitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization
of the present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undlue
restriction of production (except as may be tempo ra rily require)
by increasing ~the consumption o f industrial and agriculturalprd
ucts through increasing purchasing power, by reducing andree-
inzg unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and by other-
wise rehabilitating industry.

nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without hlmita-
tion Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7 and
Subsection (b) of Section ]10 thereof.

tive upon approval of an amendment to Sections 1 and 4 of Article

(d) TChe Amlendmentrn and the Code as amended are not designed
