UNIONS FIGHT
DAMAGE SUIT
San Diego, Calif. (FP). Nine
AFL unions are ready to defend them
selves in the most extensive legal ac
tion ever undertaken in a labor dis
pute here.
The unions as well as 30 of their of
ficials were named defendants in a
$100,000 damage suit by the Union
Ice Co., which also sought an injunc
tion against asserted picketing prac
tices.
Leading the defendants is the Sales
drivers Union Local 683, Inti. Bro. of
Teamsters, which called a strike Feb.
14 against the company as climax to
a dispute over union recognition.
Alleging that the salesdrivers were
not alone in interfering with and dam
aging the ice company’s business, the
plaintiff also listed unions represented
on the picketline as a spectacular dis
play of union solidarity in the strike’s
opening day. Later, when picketing
spread to business places accepting
Union Ice Co., deliveries, members of
some of the unions refused to handle
the “hot ice,” it was reported.

On the Capital’s Cuff
By TRAVIS K. HEDRICK
Washington—(FP).—A documented account of the sins of U. S. radio
stations was released by the Federal Communications Commission Mar. 7 but
because it dealt with the touchy subject of advertising, little of the criticism
got into the public prints.
The FCC admitted that “advertisihg represents the only source of rev
enue for most American broadcasting stations,” amounting to over $397 mil
lion a year. But, the commission said,-that “does not mean that broadcasting
should be run solely in the interest of the advertisers rather than that of the
listeners.”
Going into the list, FCC found that Station KMAC, San Antonio, Tex.,
■‘broadcast 2215 commercial announcements in 133 hours on the air durinng
the week beginning Jan. 21, 1945. This was an average of 16.7 spots per hour.
Spot announcements in excess of l,()C0 per week have been noted on a number
of stations.”
But the prize weht to WTOL, Toledo, which piled in six spot announce
ments in a 5‘X_ minute.-period on Nov. 14, 1944.
Long commercials were also targets. FCC reported that the CBS “Theater
of Romance” sponsored by Colgate, has commercials that “run anywhere
from 3 minutes and 15 seconds to 4 •A minutes.”
In a study of 834 broadcast stations, FCC found that “for every three
^writers employed, there were four advertising salesmen employed. For every
dollar paid to the average writer, the average salesman was paid $2.39.”
FCC has long believed in the sustaining (non-commercial) program as a
balance wheel for radio ... to give the public something more than the
soap opera. “What happens when the balance-wheel function of the sustaining
program is reglected can be illustrated by the case of the ‘soap opera’, defined
as ‘a continuing serial in dramatic form.’
“In January 194C,” FCC found, “the four networks provided listeners with
59'/ day-time hours of sponsored programs weekly. Of these, 55 hours were
devoted to soap operas. Only 4 X» hours a w&ek on the four networks were
devoted to any other type of program. Advertisers, in short, were permitted
to destroy overall program balance by concentrating on one type of program.
The number of soap operas subsequently increased, reaching in April 1941, a
total of some 50.”
Radio has never looked too kindly on the “free” program—the sustaining
programs. FCC referred to Labor For Victory, which brought authoritative
speakers to discuss labor’s role in the war effort in programs produced by
the AFL alternating with the CIO, and found that it was carried on Sunday,
April 30, by 35 NBC stations and rejected by 104.
Few if any sustaining programs are carried from 6 to 11 p. m. by any
of the chains and that affiliates often carried no network sustaining programs
whatever.
WCAU, a 50,000 watt CBS clear channel station in Philadelphia, for in
stance, carried only 20.8% of the available network sustaining programs from
6 to 11 p. m. during the week of Feb. 8, 1945, and more than 63% of the sus
taining programs carried by WCAU were on Saturday and Sunday.
These and a lot of other facts were assembled in the 140 page document
issued by FCC under the direction of Acting Chairman Charles R. Denny, Jr.
Denny, at 33, is being closely watched by radio interests that feel he is dan
gerous. Broadcasting, industrial weekly, said “certain of Mr. Denny’s ideas
are inimical to the best interests of a private, competitive system.”
Denny’s report says FCC will look with a cold eye at license renewals and
new applications for broadcast licenses to see if they live up to their re
sponsibility to the public. FCC promises to insist on programs devoted to
discussion of public issues, curbing of advertising excesses and to the grant
ing of time for programs serving minority interests and for non-profit organ
izations including labor.
Labor can help by insisting on more radio time.

Stockholders Acclaim
Colorado AFL Paper
Denver—(FP).—Stockholders in the
Colorado Labor Advocate, labor-owned
voice of AFL unions here, marked its
23rd year under the union banner by
acclaiming it a bulwark against the
anti-labor commercial press in this
state.
More than 40 delegates represent
ing the 57 stockholding organizations
attended the paper’s annual meeting,
unanimously approved the annual re
port of its board of directors and re
elected the board. Sec.-Treas. James
Shirley of the Colorado Federation of
Labor urged more active support of

Let Congress Know
Organized labor is letting its representatives in Congress know it is
watching their vote on the following legislation:
Under the guise of curbing AFL Musicians Union,
this bill, passed by the House, would interfere with
the right of any union to strike. Tell your Senator to
vote against.
This measure raises present minimum w’age from
40c to 65c, eventually to 75c, and extends coverage to
food processing and retail workers. Wire your Senator
to support in floor debate scheduled soon, without com
promising amendments.
Under discussion in House banking committee now,
this measure provides for extending OPA another
year. Let all Representatives and Senators know this
bill must be passed so as to hold the present value of
everyone’s dollar..
AFL and CIO favor passage of S. 1848 putting
USES under permanent federal control. Both strongly
oppose HR 4437, which would return agency to states
and leave door open for wage-cutting. Tell your Senator
to vote for S. 1848 and to vote down the House measure.
It’s A
Great System!

Maybe the reason the nation’s lead

adopt a no-strike pledge again.

It’s a wonderful thing to live under
the Anglo-Saxon tradition of law, no
search without a warrant, habeas cor

Famous last words: “Honest to god,
officer. I didn’t know that atom was
loaded.”
Demands for “company security”
clauses delayed settlement of some of

Labor Committee, unless there should
be a radical change of mind on the
part of the committee’s members,
