REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT

SIR: The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on the
modification of said Code having found as herein set forth and on
the basis of all the proceedings in this matter:
I find that:
(a) The modification of said Code and the Code as modified are
well designed to promote the policies and purposes. of Title I of the
National Industrial Recovery Act including the removal of obstruc-
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 among trade groups, by inducing and mantataining
united action of labor and management under adequate governmental
sanction and supervi.,sion, by eliminating unfair competitive prac-
tices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization of the present pro-
ductive capacity of industries, by avoiding undue restriction of pro-
duction (except as may be temporarily required), by increasing the
consumption of industrial and agricultural products through increas-
ing purchasing power, by reducing and relieving unemployment,
by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise rehabilitating
(b) The Code as modified complies in all respects with the per-
tinent provisions of said Title of said Act, including without limi-
tation Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7 and
Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The modification and the Code as modified are not designed
to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic practices.
(d) The modification and the Code as modified are not designed
to and will not eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not
operate to discriminate against them.
(e) Those engaged in other steps of the economic process have not
been deprived of the right to be heard prior to approval of said
I have therefore, on your behalf, approved said modification.
