EDITORIAL COMMENT: Later in the file [10-1932] there is another copy of this with the last paragraph-which is clearly crucial to its practical application - i.e. it makes it part of the NRA Code but not enforceable under the NRA Code - omitted. This also has no date.

That Article 7 of the NRA Code referring to regulations about right moral standards promulgated by and within the industry mean the Production Code and the Advertising Code, and that adherence to them be determined solely "by those agencies of the industry specified" in Production Code and Advertising Code.
