accordalnce~ withk the provj\isions of Tfitle I of the National Industrial
RecoveryS Act.

T~he H~ack Saw Blade Man11u lcf Illturin Industry, being truly rep-
resenltativec of this division of the Fabricated Mletal Products M~anu-
facturinlg and Metal Finishing and M~etal Coating Industry, has
elected to avail itself of the option of submitting a Supplementary

and MYetal Finishing and M~etal Coating Industryr approved by you
on the secondll day of November, 1933.

Article II accurately defines specific terms employed in the Sup-
plementary Code.
Article III establishes a Sup~plemecntalry Code Authorityr consisting
of three (3) members elc~ted3 by the members.0f the Industry a-t a

the Admuinistrator the authority to appoint one to three additional
members without vote and provides machinery for obtaining sta-
tistics and the admlninistration of the Supplemnentar~y Code.
AQrticle IV. This InTdulstry is a, division of the Fabricated Metal

tices, and recognizes that price increases be limited to actual addi-
tional increase in the seller's costs.

The Assistanrt D~eput~y Al'mlinistra;tor in his final report; to mne on
said. Supp~lementar~y Code having foulnd as herein set forth and on
the basis of all the pjrotceedingr s in this mlatter:
I find that :
(al) Said Suppelemellntar Code is well des~ignedl to promote th
policies and purposes of Title I of the National Indlustrial Recovery
dc~t. includ~ingr removal, of obstructions to the free flw of intterstate
and~ foreignl commerce, which tend to diminish the amount t.hereof
and: will provide for thre general welfare bly promnoting the organiza-
tion of industry for the purposes of cooperati-ve action amlong; the
trade grroups,~1 by inducllingr and maintainingr united action of Inbor
and mallnagemnc:1t und~er adequate governmental sanctions and super-
vision, by elimnatnRinr unfani r cmpetitrp ive rcticPs, by prmoting thre
fullest possible. utilization of the present p~roductive capacity of in-
dustries, by avoiding undue restriction of production (except- as may
be temporarily required), by increasing the consumption of indus-
trial and agricultural prodfucts through inrreasing purchasing power
by reducingr and relieving unemployment by improving standards o~
labor, and b6y otherwise rehabilitatingi indlustyS.,
(b) Said Industry normally employs nrot more than 50,000P em-
ployees; and is not classified by me as a .mejor industry.
(Yc) The Supplemnentalry Code as approved complies in all respects
w7Cith the pertinlent provisions of said Title of said Act, including
without limitation Subsection (a) of Section 3, S-ubsec~tion (a) of
Section 7, and Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof ; and that the
applicant association is an mndustr~ial association trul represent~a-
tive of the. atforesaid I~ndustr; and that said association imposes no
inequritable restrictions on. admission to membership therei.
(d) The --upplementary Code is not decsigned to and will not p~er-
mit monopolies or monopolistic prnetices.
(e) The Supplemenmtary Code is not designed to and will not
eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not operate to dis-
criminate ag~rainSt them..
(f) Thnose engaged in other steps otf the econromice process h~ave
not been deprived of theg right to bez h-eard psrio to approval of' said
Supplementary C~ode.
F~or these reasons, therefore, I have approved this Supplementary
