REV. 808 SHULER
WINS RADIO PLEA Examiner Backs Renewal, but Holds Some of Broad • casts “Indiscreet.” By the Associated Press. Ellis A. Yost, chief examiner of the Radio Commission, today recommended renewal of the license of Station KGEF, Trinity Methodist Church South, Los Angeles, operated by Rev. Bob Shuler. Yost held the public interest would be served by granting Dr. Shuler’s re- : newal application, but expressed the ; opinion the minister had been “ex-, tretnely indiscreet In some of his broadcasts.” j The commission. In recess until Fall, has yet to pass on the examiner's rec ommendation. “Evidently broadcasts were made by him (Shuler) before investigation and Inquiry to deterimlne the correctness of such broadcasts," Yost said. “The practice of reflecting upon the ; character cf a citizen, based solely on j rumors and unverified reports, resulting j in Injury both to the business and rep utation of such citizen, Is indefensible. "Injury or injustice by reason of a radio broadcast may b’ irreparable. Un just attacks upon religious denomina tions increase religious prejudice and arouse community strife and antagon nism; unwarranted criticism of the courts and public officials tend to de stroy confidence of the people In free government, and are against public interest.” Case Reviewed In Detail. The repqrt pointed out that a broad casting license “does not confer upon any one the right or privilege to broad cast any false, slanderous or libelous matter," and said any abuse of the privileges conferred by a radio license would weigh heavily against the license upon the question of renewal. The 24-page opinion reviewed the Shuler case In detail. It said the station represented an investment of $43,250, of which sum $25,000 was a gift to Dr. Shuler. The station was held his per sonal property, verbally leased to the church. The examiner reported that it was apparent to him that Dr. Shuler and a great many people within the area served were convinced that his broad casts had rendered a distinctive public service, and that It was “Just as ap parent that a great many people within that area are equally convinced these broadcasts have been against public in terest." “It appears that Dr. Shuler is free to wholly determine the matters broadcast by him," the examiner said, adding the 000 persons composing the member snip of the church were “a unit in sup porting his radio broadcast.” The examiner said he believed the church congregation to be “representa tive of the good citizenship of Los An geles.” Church’s Statement Cited. He said further that various church organizations had insisted that the broadcasts had urged upon the public a strict compliance with law, honesty. in public office, speedier and more es- j festive punlrh rent of law violators and t other measures for the public good. The report said it was not for the , examine, to determine how far Dr. Shuler should go In criticizing, con demning or praising public officials mid candidates. In order to Justify denial of the ap plication. Yost said, the broadcasts ot Dr. Shuler must appear to be of “such a public disservice as to outweigh all the public service rendered by all other! broadcasts made over the applicant I station.” Since Dr. Shuler broadcasts only 3 1 hours each week out of a total of 23’* j hours this station is on the air, the examiner said, the other religious, philanthropic and charitable broad casts outweighed the objectionable mat ter which the examiner himself criti cized. In an advance note, the examiner •aid he was of the opinion the testimony of Dr. Thomas J. Orblson, alienist, tend ing to show the effect of the broad casts of Dr. Shuler upon certain types of minds was immaterial and irrelevant. 1 TEN RADIO STATIONS FOR AIRWAYS PLANNED ■r the Associated Pres*.
