mentary Code Authority of this Industry in accordance with the

The Assistant Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on
said Amendment to said Supplementary Code having found as herein
set forth and on the basis of all the proceedings in this matter:
I find that:
(a) Said Amendment to said Supplementary Code and the Sup-
plementary Code as amended are well designed to promote the poli-
cies and purposes of Title I of the National Industrial Recovery Act,
including removal of obstructions 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 purposes of cooperative action of labor and man-
agement under adequate governmental sanctions 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 tem-
porarily required), by increasing the consumption of industrial and
agricultural products through increasing purchasing power, by re-
ducing and relieving unemployment, by improving standards of
labor, and by otherwise rehabilitating industry.
(b) The Supplementary Code as amended complies in all respects
with the pertinent provisions of said Title of said Act, including
without limitation Subsection (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of
Section 7, and Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Supplementary Code empowers the Supplementary Code
Authority to present the aforesaid Amendment on behalf of the
Industry as a whole.
(d) The Amendment and the Supplementary Code as amended
are not designed to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic
(e) The Amendment and the Supplementary Code as amended
are not designed to and will not eliminate or oppress small enter-
prises 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, therefore, I have approved this Amendment.
