The demandnc for thle products of the IndusltryS follows the demandrlc
for textiles atnd the cha~ng~es in styles and designs.
Prior to the signing of the P'resident's Rteemplloymlent Agrteement,
the hlour~s in. the Indulstr~y averalged. 48 per week.

'Ther Depulty Admlnist en;torl in his final reCport' to me1( on said Code11
h~aving foulndl as hnerein set forth and on the! basis of all the prlclced.~~
ines~ in thiis matlterl:
I findl that:
(aE) Said CodelC is well decsigrned to promote the pollic~ies- and purF-
poses of Title I of the Naltiornal Indutr~liall Rec'overy'3 Alct, including
r~emovanl of obstructions to the free flow of intierstate~ and fol~ireig
commlerce w-hich tend to dlimiinish the amountlll thereoClf und will pro'i-
v-ide for thc generl welfare by promoting the o~~rganiznltoion oft inllus-
try for the purposes of c~ooperautive notion among 1~,the trade groups, by
ulnder adecquate govclnlernment sanctions andlc supervision, by clinlilnat-
ing unfair compeltitiv p~racticecs, by pr'omotingr the fullest possible

a~nd r~eliev\ingr unem~lployrment, by imp~~c~ roing :tanclu~lars of labor, and
by otherwni se r~ehablilf i tatin indc ust ry.
(b) Said7 Industry normally employs not molrelt than 5i0,000 emn-
play~ees; andc is not clasrifiedl by me as a maajor indus~!try.'
(c) Th'le Cod~e as appr~ovedl complies in all re~pec~ts with the per-
tinenrt ~r~ov-isiocns of n;it Title of said 2c~t, includlingr without limrita-
tion Sublsec~tion (a) of Section 3, SubseJction (a) of Secctiol "7, alnd~
