and will provide for the general welfare by promoting the organ-
ization of industry for the purpose of cooperative action of labor
and management under adequate governmental sanction and super-
vision, by eliminating unfair competitive practices, by promoting
the fullest possible utilization of the present productive capacity o7
industries, by avoiding undue restriction of production (except as
may be temporarily required), by increasing the consumption of
industrial and agricultural products through increasing purchasing
power, by reducing and relieving unemployment, by improving
standards of labor, and by otherwise rehabilitatin-industry.
(b) The Supplemental 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 Divisional Code Authority for the Wholesale Wallpaper
Trade is empowered to present the aforesnid amendment.
(d) The amendment and the Supplemental Code as amended
are not designed to and will not permit monopolies or monopolistic
(e) The amendment and the Supplemental 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 the approval of
this amendment to the Supplemental Code.
For these reasons, this amendment has been approved.
