welfare by promotloing the organization of industry for the purpose
of cooperative action of ilabo~r andl management under adequate gov-
ernmentall sancltion andi superv-ision, by chmiinatmng unfair compet-
itive piractices, ify promoting thle fullest p~ossib~le utilization of the
present pr~oduct~ive capacity ty of the industries, by avoidingr undue
restr~ictionll of production exceptt usi may be templorar1ily required),
by increasing the consumption of industrial andl agricultural products
through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving un-
emuploymnent, b~y impllroving standards of laborj, and by otherwise
(b)j Th'e C~odet as ame~ndedc. complies in all respects wvithl the perti-
