The rephrasing of these provisions clarifies their intent and makes
possible their more effectie a ni ministration. Insofar as these amend-
iel(:Its incorporate additions to tiLe text, the additions are the result
of either original oversight or of pr:ci.-,. experience under the

ments to said Code having found as herein set forth and on the
basis of the proceedings in this iiitac':

(a) The amendments to said Co a1 and the Code as amended are
well dI-.-Wgiil1 to promote the policies and purps;..s of Title I of the
National Industrial Recovery, Act including the removal of ob-
str.'Otions to the free flow of :iir'..tat .-:it nd foreign commerce which
tend to diminish the ramro-nt thereof, and will provide for the gen-
eral welfare by proml:ting the orga'i1:, nation of industry for tlhe pur-
pose of c.o'l,,:::tive ar-tion :rmolog trade groups, by inducing and
maintaining united action of labor and management under ade-
qiate govie"rnmenal -i.iction and supervision..by eliminating unfair
comllet itive practices, by promoting the fullest possible utilization
of the present productive capacity of the Industries, by avoiding un-
due restrictions of production (except as may be temporarily re-
quired), by increasing the con-.runption of industrial and anricul-
tulral products through increasing pur, '-iir: power, by reducing
and relieving unemploynieint, by improving standards of labor, and
by otherwise rehabilitating industry.
(b) The Code as anlended complies in all respects with the per-
tinent provisions i of said Title of said Act, including w 1 thout limi-
tation sbiil.- tion (a) of Section 3, Subsection (a) of Se, ti(n 7 and
Subecfion (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Code empowers the Code Authority to present the afore-
said amendments on behalf of the industry as a whole.
(d) The amendments and the Code as aennded are not ldesigred
to and will not permit monopoII lies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The amendments and the Code as nmenuled are not designed
to and will not eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not
operate to disn'is'iriijine against them.
(f) Thrv'e enna led in other steps of the economic ptc-,ess have
not been deprivedl of the right to be heard prior to approval of said
For these reasons, therefore, I have approved the an-nldments.

industry at a price or upon such terms or conditions which will
result in the buyer paying for the goods received less than the
cost to the member of the industry, determined in accordance with
a uniform and standard cost accounting system to be recommended
by the Code Authority and to become effective upon approval by the
Administrator; provided, however, that dropped lines, seconds, or
inventories of finished products which must be converted into cash to
meet emergency needs may be disposed of in such manner and on
such terms and conditions as are necessary to move such products into
the buyer's hands; and further provided that selling below cost
in order to meet existing competition on products of equivalent
design, character, quality or specifications shall not be deemed a
violation of this Article if specific notice is given to the Code
The following amendment adds a Paragraph 8 to Article VII,
Sulbscection A. This amendment provides protection for the industry
and the consumer against inaccurate advertising.
(6) ARTICLE VII, SUBSECTION A, PARAGRAPH 8:
8. Inaccurate Advert;sing.-No member of the industry shall pub-
lish advertising (whether printed, radio, display or any other na-
