SIR: The Code Authority for the Undergarment and Negligee
Industry submitted a proposed amendment to the Code of Fair
Competition for the Undergarment and Negligee Industry. This

Recovery Administration and received its approval.
As this amendment was in accordance with standard form and

Notices of Opportunity to be Heard were printed and distributed in
the same manner as the Notice of Public Hearing. A specified date
was set forth in such notices, by which time objections and criticisms
were to be received relative to this amendment. Up to and including
the dates specified in such notices, no objections or criticisms were

all members of the Industry to pay its equitable contribution to the
expense of the maintenance of the Code Authority.

free flow of interstate and foreign commerce which tend to diminish
the amount thereof, and will provide for the purpose of cooperative
action of labor and management under adequate governmental sanc-
tions 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 production
(except as may be temporarily required), by increasing the consump-
tion of industrial and agricultural products through increased pur-
chasing power, by reducing and relieving unemployment, by improv-
ing standards of labor, and by otherwise rehabilitating Industry.
(b) The Code as amended 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 Code empowers the Code Authority to present the afore-
said amendment on behalf of the industry as a whole.
(d) The amendment and the Code as amended are not designed
to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices. 4
(e) The amendment and the Code as amended are not designed to
and will not eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not
operate to discriminate against them.
(f) Those engaged in other steps of the economic process have. not
been deprived of the right to be heard prior to approval of said
For these reasons this amendment has been approved.
For the National Industrial Recovery Board:
