welfare by promoting the organization of industry for the purpose
of cooperative action among trade groups, by inducing and maintain-
ing united action of labor and management under adequate govern-
mental sanction 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 consumption of industrial and agricultural products through in-
rli easing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving unemployment,
b:y improving the standards of labor, and by otherwise rehabilitating
S (b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the perti-
Ai"ltiprovisions of said Title of said Act, including without limita-

i, (c) The Code empowers the Code authority to present the afore-
i i amendments on behalf of the Industry as a whole.

ii to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.

li ..tand will not eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not
iyaerate 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
S or these reasons these amendments have been approved.
