turing Industry, a Division of the Fabricated Metal Products Manu-
facturing and Metal Finishing and Metal Coating Industry to

ment to said Supplementary Code having found as herein set forth
and on the basis of all the'proceedings in this matter:
We find that:

plementary Code as amended are well designed to promote the
policies and purposes of Title I of the National Industrial Recovery
Act, including the removal of obstructions to the free flow of inter-
state 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 maintaining united action
of labor and inan;aigement under adequate governmental sanction
and supervision, by elimiinating unfair competitive practices, by
promoting the fullest possible utilization of the present productive
canipaity of industries, by avoiding undue restriction of production
(except as may be temporarily required), by increasing the consump-
tion of industrial and agricultural products through increasing pur-
chasing power, by rednriing and relieving unemnploymjent, by improv-
ing standards of labor, and by otherwise rehabilitating industry.
(b) The Supplementary Code as ai ended complies in all respects
with the pertinent provis-ions of said Title of said Act, including
without limitation Silbsletion (a) of Section 3, Su bsection (a) of
Section 7, and Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Supplenmentary Code and the Supplementary Colde as
aimendl(ed are not designed to and will not per'lit monopolies or
(d) The ;ieiIrldiinlnt and the Supplemeintiary Code as almeneded
are not lideigrlned to and will not climiiniiate or oppress small eniter-
pri.-.), and will not operate to discriimimiite against them.
(e) Those engaged in other steps of the economic process have
not been deprived of the right to be heard prior to the approval of
For these reasons, therefore, this amendment has been approved.
For the National Industrial Recovery Board:
