tion for the Soft Fibre Manufacturing Industry. Notice of Oppor-
tunity to be Heard on these amendments was published on Septem-
ber 25, 1934; no objections were received within the given fifteen

These amendments provide (1) for alternates for each member

sions to this Code.

tions to the free flow of interstate and foreign commerce which tend
to diminish the amount thereof, and will provide for the general
welfare by promoting the organization of industry for the purpose
of cooperative action of labor and management under adequate gov-
ernmental sanction and supervision, by eliminating unfair competi-
tive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the
present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue restric-
tion of production (except as may be temporarily required), by in-
creasing the consumption of industrial and agricultural products
through increasing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving un-
employment, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
(b) The Code as amended complies in all respects with the perti-
nent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limita-
tion sub-section (a) of Section 3, sub-section (a) of Section 7, and
sub-section (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Code Authority is empowered to present the aforesaid
amendments opbehalf of the Industry as a whole.
(d) The amendments and the Code as amended are not designed
to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The amendments 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 these amendments have been approved.
