FINDINIIGS

TPhe Deputy 'Admrinistrator in his final report to me on said Sup-
p'lemnentalry Code having found as herreinl set forth and on thle bas~is
of all the proceedings in this matter:
I find that:
(a) Said Supp>lem~entarly Code is well des.igned~ to promote the
poli-cies and pull'~rp-es of 'ITitle I of the National Industrial Recovery
Act, including r~emloval of obstructions to, the free flow of inlterta';:te
and foreign commerce which tendi to diminish the amount thereof
and wvill provide for the general welfare by promoting the olgrganizal-
tion of industry for the purposes of ctooper~ative action amrong the
trade groups, by induing atnd mnaintaimlng united action of labor
awlrl management~ll!.It under adjeqjuate governmental sanctions and super-
vision, by eliminating un lfa ir' omet ll~iti ve practices, by promoting
the fullest possible ultiljizaion of the present productive capacity of
industries, by avo~iding undue restriction of p~roductionl (ex~icep~t as
maIy be temnporarily r~equiredl), by .incr'las'3ing the consumption of
industrial and agr1icultural products through increasing purchasing
powJer, by recducing and relieving unemployment, b~y imnpro~ving
standards of labor, alnd by otherw~i;se 1rehailitating industry.
(b) Said indus~try3 normally employs not more than 5i0,000 em-
ployees; and is nlot declassified by me as a major indus~try~.
(c) The Supplemen~tary Code as approved omliesllc in all re-
spects wcithl the plertineint provisions of said Title of said Act, includ-
ing without limitation Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection- (a) of
Section 7, and Subsection (b) of Sectioon 10 thereof ; and that the
applicant acssc~iatfionl is an assnc~iatio n truly repl~~resetative of the
aforesaid indluitry3; and that said association imnposes no inequ~itab2le
rIestr~ition s on admission to owibershl:~l~lip therein.
(d) The Supplemlentary Codelt is not desiigned7 to and will not
permit monopolies or mnonop~olistic practices.
(e) The Supllple mentaryr Code is not designelld to and will not elimi-
inatee or oppress small enlte~rprlises and will not operate to dicrilim~-
inate a ga1i nst them.
(f) T~hose engaged in other steps of! the economic p~rocecss have'
not been deprived of thne right to be heard prior to approval of said~
Supple~metal try3 Code.
Fior these reasons, therefore, I have approved this Supp~cllemetntry
Code; provided, however, that the provisions of Article VII, Sec-








tion 1. (a) inso~far ais they~ pres'cribeJ) a waiting~ perlidc beitwenc'i fthe'
