quate governmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair
competitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization
of the present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue
re;-triction of production (except as may be temporarily required),

ucts through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and reliev-
ing unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and by other-
wise rehabilitating in dustry.
