wages paid within the Dry Kiln Industiry to such levels as are neces-

standard of living; to restore the income of enterprises within the

manner as will currently reflect the equitable adjustment to varia-
tions in the cost. of living.

activities for the purpose of collective bargaining or other mutual
aid or protection.

CODE OF FAIR COMPETITION FOR THE DRY KILN INDUSTRY

The two companies, parties to this schedule, join in the attached Code in all
of its articles except Articles 4 and 5, and except Article 3, paragraph (c).

cuted the President's Reemployment Agreement and adjusted their hours and
compensation in conformity therewith, resulting in shorter hours, increased

panies, are The National Dry Kiln Company, Indianapolis, Indiana; Standard
Dry Kiln Company, Indianapolis; Elmer E. Perkins Company, Chicago; and the
