obstructions to the free flow of interstate and foreign commerce
which tend to diminish the amount thereof, and will provide for

the purpose of cooperative action among trade groups, by inducing
and maintaining united action of labor and management under ade-
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
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 relieving :i
unemployment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
rehabilitating industry, :
(b) The Code as modified complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limitas-
tion Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7 and

Said modification is accordingly approved.

ing equipment either on a one-shift or a two-shift basis. If a

such shift shall not exceed forty (40) hours in any one week, and

each shift shall not exceed thirty-six (36) hours in any one week.
In the latter event, the rates paid to knitters, kintting-helpers, and

if they were working on a forty (40) hour shift."
