FINDINGS

The Assistant Deputy Adminnstrator in his final report to mue on

the proceedings in this matter;
I find that,-
(a) Said Supplemientary Code is well designed to promote the
policies and purposes of Title I of the National Industrial Recovery
Act, including removal of obstructions to thte free flow of interstate
and foreign commerce which tend to diminish the amount thereof
and will' provide for the general welfare by promoting the organ-
ization of industry for the purpose of cooperative action among the
tr~ade groups, by inducing and maintaining united action of labor
and management under adequate governmentally sanctions and super-
vision, by eliminating unfair competitive practices, by promoting
the fullest possible utilization of the present productive capacity
of indunt~ries, by avoiding undue restriction of production (except
as may be temporarily required) by increasing: the consumption
of idusria an agrculura prdcucts th rough increasing purchas-
ing power, by reducing and rleiguepomnb mrvn
standards of labor, andt by otherwise rehabilitating industry.
(b)Sai Idusrynormally employs not mlor~e than 50,000 em-
plees Sand inds nt lsified by me as a major industry.
(c) The Supplementary Code as approved complies in all respects
with t~he pertinentprovisions of said Title of said Act, including
without lunitation ubsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of
Section 7, a~nd Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof ; and that the
applicant association is an industrial association truly representative
of the aforesaid Industry; and that said association imaposes no
inequitable restriction on admission to membership therein.
(d) The Supplementary Code is not designed to and will. not
permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The Supplementary Code is not designed to and will not elimi-
nate or oppress small enterprises and will not operate to discriminate
against them.
(f) Those engaged in other steps of the economic process have
not been deprived of the right to be heard prior to approval of
said Code.
For these reasons, therefore, I have approved this Supplementary
Code.
Respectfully,
IE-vanI S. JOH NSON,
A4dn, minitr~atolr.
