of cooperatl\ve action among trade groups, by inducing and miain-
taining united action of labor and mannagemlent under adequate
governmental sanction and supervision, by elim~inating unfair com-
pectitiv-e practices, by avoiding undue restriction of production
exceptt as may be temporarily requiredd, by increasing the con-
sumption of industrial and agrcultural products through increas-
ing purchasing power by reducing and relieving unemployment,
by improving standartkl of labor, and by otherwise rehabilitating

(c) The amendment and the Code as ninendlred are not designed
to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.

not been deprived of the right to be heard prior to approval of said
For these reasons, therefore The National Industrial Rcecovery
