well designed to promote the policies and purposes of Title I of the
National Industrial Recovery Act including the removal of obstruc-
tions to the free flow of interstate and foreign commerce which tend
to diminish the amount thereof, and will provide for the general
welfare by promoting the organization of industry for the purpose of
cooperative action among trade groups, by inducing and maintaining
united action of labor and management under adequate. governmental
sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair competitive prac-
tices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the present
productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue restrictions of
production (except as may be temporarily required), by increasing
the consumption of industrial and agricultural products through in-
creasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving unemploy-
ment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise rehabilitat-
(b) The Code as modified complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limita-
tion Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7 and
Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Modification and the Code as modified are not designed
to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(d) The Modification and the Code as modified 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
pot been deprived of the right to be heard prior to approval of said
For these reasons, this Modification has been approved by me.
