to the free flow of interstate and foreign commerce which tend to
diminish the amount thereof and will provide for the general wel-
fare by promoting the organization of industry for the purposes of
cooperative action of labor and management under adequate gov-
ernmental sanctions and supervision, by eliminating unfair com-
petitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of
the present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue
restriction of production (except as may be temporarily required),
by increasing the consumption of industrial and agr~ienitural prod-
ucts through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and re~liev-
ing unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and by other-
wise rehabilitating industry.
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the perti-
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.

to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(d) The Amendment and the Code as amended are not designed
to and will not eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not
operate to discriminate against them.
(e) Those engaged in other steps of the economic process have not
been deprived of the right to be heard prior to approval of said
For these reasons, therefore, I have approved this Amendment,
such approval and such amendment to tak~e effect. in fifteen (15)
days, unless good cause to the contrary is shiown to me before that
time and I issue a subsequent order to that effect.
