mental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair competitive
practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the present
productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue restriction of

AMENDMENT TO CODE OF FAIR COMPETITION FOR
THE RETAIL MONUMENT INDUSTRY
Article VI is hereby amended by the addition of a new last para-
graph numbered 12 and reading as follows:
"SECTION 12. Incorporation of Code Authority. The Code Au-
thority may incorporate under the laws of any State of the United
States or the District of Columbia, or may assume or adopt such
existing corporate form under any of such laws as it may deem
appropriate for the proper performance of its activities, powers
and duties under this Code. Such corporation or corporate form
shall be not for profit and it is to be known as 'Retail Monument
Code Authority, Inc.'; provided, however, that the powers, duties,
objects and purposes of said corporation shall be limited to the
powers, duties, objects and purposes of the Code Authority, as pro-
vided in this Code; and provided further that the Code Authority
shall submit to the National Industrial Recovery Board, for its ap-
proval, its proposed Certificate of Incorporation and proposed By-
Laws, and no amendment of either shall he made without the like
prior approval of the National Industrial Recovery Board; and pro-
vided further, that the Code Authority shall submit, with its pro-
posed Certificate of Incorporation and By-Laws, the written opinion
of an attorney at law qualified in and conversant with the laws of
the jurisdiction in which the Code Authority seeks to be incorpo-
rated, as to the nature and extent of the jurisdiction, powers and
authorities exercisable by the State in question, and its agencies over
the activities of the Code Authority as a corporation.
If at any time the National Industrial Recovery Board shall de-
termine that the corporate status assumed by the Code Authority is
interfering with the proper exercise of its powers and duties under
this Code, or with the effectuation of the policies or purposes of the
Act, it may, after such notice and hearing as it may deem necessary,
require an appropriate modification of the structure of the Corpora-
tion (if consistent with the law of the State of Incorporation), the
substitution of a corporation created under the laws of another State
in the same manner as the existing Code Authority, the substitution
of a non-corporate Code Authority truly representative of the In-
dustry, or such other actions as it may deem expedient."
