dustrial Recovery Board on said amendment to said Code having

tend to diminish the amount thereof, and will provide for the gen-

pose of cooperative action among trade groups, by inducing and
maintaining united action of labor and management under adequate

petitive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of
the present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue
restriction of production (except as may be temporarily required),
by increasing the consumption of industrial and agricultural prod-
ucts through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and reliev-
ing unemployment, by improving the standards of labor, and by
otherwise rehabilitating industry.

ing and Printing Industry by the deletion of Article IX in its
entirety, and substitute therefore a new Article IX, which reads as
Each member of the industry shall keep accurate and complete
records of its transactions in the industry whenever such records may
be required under any of the provisions of this Code, and shall fur-
nish accurate reports based upon such records concerning any of
such activities when required by the Code Authority or the National
Industrial Recovery Board. If the Code Authority or the National
Industrial Recovery Board shall determine that substantial doubt
exists as to the accuracy of any such report, so much of the pertinent
books, records and papers of such member as may be required for
the verification of such report may be examined by an impartial
agency, agreed upon between the Code Authority and such member,
or, in the absence of agreement, appointed by the National Industrial
Recovery Board. In no case shall the facts disclosed by such exami-
nation be made available in identifiable form to any competitor,
whether on the Code Authority or otherwise, or be given any other
