ARTICLE IV

To accomplish the purpose contemplated by this Act the members
signatory to this Code agree that it shall be unfair competition to
bid below reasonable cost as established by standard accounting
methods, taking into account proper charges for depreciation and
obsolescence.
ARTICLE V

To accomplish the purposes of the National Industrial Recovery
Act, so long as the capacity of the dredging plant in the territory
covered by the Code is amply sufficient to perform the dredging in
this territory, it will be considered a violation of this Code to make
any material increase in the plant capacity of the industry, except
the maintenance and improvement of existing plant and replacement
of lost plant. This restriction shall not apply to any plant actually
under construction prior to July 15, 1933, nor to readjustments of or
additions to plant for special applications.

ment as experience with the operation thereof may develop the neces-
sity therefore. Such amendment shall be made only in the following
manner:

approval of a majority of the organization making up the Dredge
Owners Organization, shall be transmitted to the Control Committee
referred to in the bylaws.







(b) Upon the receipt of such proposed amendment thus approved,
a meeting of the Control Committee shall be called upon due notice
in writing and with all convenient speed. A copy of the proposed
amendment, with a list of the organizations approving the same, shall
be embodied in such notice. A complete duplicate copy thereof shall
be sent at the same time to every member of the Dredge Owners
Organization. Such proposed amendment shall be submitted to
said Committee at the meeting thus called.
(c) In case such proposed amendment shall be approved at said
meeting by a majority of the Control Committee, after the filing of
written proof by affidavit of compliance with the foregoing subdivisions
(a) and (b), said proposed amendment shall be submitted to the Presi-
dent of the United States for his approval. Upon the approval of
such amendment by the President of the United States, it shall become
effective, otherwise to have no force or effect.

United States and shall be applicable only to contracts entered into
after the date of such approval.
