wellfare byv promotngtj the organization of industry for the purpose
of coope'ative action of labor andc management, under adequate
governmlentall sanction and supervision, Iy ehmninatinlg unfair com~-
petitive practices, by prom-oting the ful est possible utilization of
the present productive capacity of industries, by avoiding ~undue
restriction of production (except as may be temiporarily requiredd,
by increasing the conisumption of industrial and agricultural prod-
ucts throughrl incresi;ng purclrhasing power, by reduciirng and relieving
u nemp Iloym Ie nt, by improving standards of labor, and by otherwise
relhabiiaitain industry.
(b) The Codte as amlendedd complies in all respects with thle perti-
nent provision of saidl Title of said Act., including without limitation
sub-se~ction (a) of Section 3, sub-section (a) of Section 7, and sub-
section (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) TIlhe Cod'e empowers thre Code Authority to present the afore-
said amiendmenti on behalf of the industry as a whole.
(d) The amlendment and the. Code as amended are not designed

ate to discriminate against them.


REPORT' TO THE PRESIDENT








(f) Those engaged in other steps of the erconom-ic process have not
been deprived of t~he right to be heard pr1ior to approval of said
amlendlment.
I believe the amnendlment to be fair to labor, to th~e consumer, and to
the indlustrly, and for these reasons, therefore, I have approved this
amendmelnt.

Huncr S. JoBNweaN,
A dmnin istrator.
