Limit on Commercials
• Proposed in Code
For Broadcasters
•y tH# Associoted Pr#*»
ATLANTIC CITY. N. J.. Sept. 15.
—The National Association o(
Broadcasters made public today its
proposed new standards of practice
which would limit commercials and
carefully define the handling of
mystery and crime programs.
The code covers a broad field, in
cluding the treatment of such sub
t jects as religion, marriage and the
home, simulation of news, children's
programs and types of advertising
considered unacceptable. Its con
tents were disclosed by NAB of
ficials one day in advance of the
25th annual convention of the or
ganization.
Limits for Commercials.
The limitation on commercials
would be divided into two divisions:
One for daytime programs and one
for night programs. The maximum
commercial time allowed in any lo
minute broadcast period—including
station breaks—would be 3 minutes,
limited to one minute of com
mercials. For longer programs, the
proposed limit on commercials
ranges up to 7 minutes for a one
hour daytime program and 6 min
utes for a one-hour program after
W y.lll.
For children's programs, the pro
posed code outlines in detail some
of the things considered objection
able. For instance, criminals should
never be presented in a favorable
light, references to kidnaping would
be banned, and the code urges that
no program end with an episode
that would create harmful nervous
reaction in a child.
Lively Debate Expected.
While there is strong sentiment
among delegates for a code, lively
debate is expected on some individ
ual sections of the proposed stand
ards of practice.
A plan advanced by the National
Broadcasting Co. at its own con
, vention preceding the NAB meeting.
which would restrict the broadcast
- ing of crime and mystery programs
on NBC outlets to hours after 9:30
p.m. in each time zone, has brought
a cool response from other networks.
Frank Stanton, president of the
Columbia Broadcasting System, put
it this way:
"I have nothing against crime
stories, per se,” he said. It's the
way they are handled.”
Wyche Returns After Probe
Of Gen. Lee's Command
By Associated Press
Maj. Gen. Ira T. Wyche, Army
Inspector general, returned today

night. —AP Wirephoto.
Boosts for Gen. Eisenhower,
Stassen Enliven G. 0. P. Front
Capper Says Sentiment for Chief of Staff
Grows; Minnesotan's Forces See Open Race
Preliminary skirmishing for
the 1948 Republican presidential
nomination picked up on many
fronts today.
Senator Capper, Republican, of
Kansas, insisted that sentiment is
growing for selection of Gen. Eisen
hower as the Republican candidate.
Two other Republican Senators
backing Harold” E. Stassen, former
Governor of Minnesota, predicted
the party's convention next year
will be "a real horse race” with Mr.
Stassen a strong contender.
The Stassen supporters, Senators
Ball of Minnesota and McCarthy of
Wisconsin, expressed confidence in
interviews here that no one will be
nominated on the first ballot.
Senator McCarthy conceded that
_ r-\__ _ r _ xr«_i. _1 o._
\_l U > . I / c ncy Ul I’v n A ui IV u 11 V* *■
ator Taft of Ohio may enter the
Republican convention at Philadel
phia in June with large blocks of
delegates. "But Gov. Dewey has
got to win on the first ballot or he
is beaten," the Senator said.
Gov. Dewey and Senator Taft
moved to new territory today to
sound out their chances. Gov.
Detfey invaded New England for the
first time since his 1944 campaign,
attending the Eastern States Expo
sition at Springfield, Mass., which
threw him into contact with GOP
Governors or their close aides from
eight Eastern Seaboard States.
Senator Taft headed for Los
Angeles and two important policy
speeches in his tour to "help me
make up my mind" whether to
seek the nomination.
Senator Capper, in a radio address
from Topeka last night, kept the
Eisenhower-for-President talk alive
with an assertion that unless the
general takes himself out of the pic
ture “by some unequivocal state
ment, he will be a factor in the Re
publican convention at Philadelphia
whether or not he is an announced
•'All over the United States.” he
declared, "there are good Americans
who look forward to the possibility
of helping elect Gen. Eisenhower.”
The General, who will take over
the presidency of Columbia Univer
sity when he retire* early next year
as army chief of staff, has insisted
that he will have nothing to do with
movements to “draft” him for the
nomination. He has not said, how
ever, that he would refuse to run if
nominated.
Senator Capper termed specula
tion that Gen. Eisenhower might
be a Vice Presidential nominee on
the Democratic ticket "nothing but
a red herring intended to worry
some Republican laders."
Out of deference to Gen. Eisen
hower, the Kansas Senator said he
does not consider the general a
Candidate this year "but I do sug
gest you watch him in 1948.”
Says General Is Embarrassed.
He said it is his “sincere belief”
that Eisenhower is not seeking the
office and is embarrassed by the
"spontaneous outbursts of declara
tion for him for the nomination.”
“I appreciate Gen. Eisenhower’s
scruples against being placed in the
position, while Chief of Staff, of be
ing considered a candidate for the
presidency,” Senator Capper said.
i “It runs counter to all his beliefs
and training and tradition as an
officer of the Army.”
< He believes, he said, that the gen
! eral has a conviction it would be
“an unhealthy thing, contrary to the
: best interests of the public, for the
Army to be regarded as a stepping
stone to the highest political office
of the land.” Senator Capper said
he agreed but noted that by the first
of the year Gen. Eisenhower will be
a private citizen.
Gen. MacArthur's name was
brought into the picture by Senator
IilcCarthy, who is. directing the
Stassen campaign for delegates in
the important Wisconsin election
of delegates next April 6 to the
nominating convention.
Midwest Leaders Silent.
“I think we can win a majority
of the Wisconsin delegates for Mr.
Stassen," Senator McCarthy said,
"although entrance of Gen. Mac
Arthur may cloud things a bit." Gen.
MarArthur, who has shied clear of
political talk while adding to his
reputation as Allied commander in
Japan; is expected to be proposed in
the race by his friends.
Meanwhile, a spokesman at a Re
publican State leaders' meeting in
Omaha said prospective presidential
candidates will get no clues out of
their session.
The Midwest Republican State
Chairmen's Association assembled
for a two-day gathering billed as
an attempt to lay the ground work
for a united Midwest front at the
Philadelphia convention.
A. T. Howard, chairman of the
19-State association, said it would
be "premature” to think in terms of
candidates. The group's vice presi
dent, Ohio State Chairman Fred H.
Johnson, agreed. «
Mr. Johnson added that any can
didate would have to "reflect the
thinking of the Midwest” to re
ceive the group's backing.
Reece Again Assails Vetoes.
On another front, Republican
National Chairman Carroll Reece
lashed out anew at President Tru
man's double veto of the Repub
lican-sponsored tax reduction bill
last session.
Contending Mr. Truman has
“boasted” that he blocked Con
gress from "saving the people's
iiiuucj, mu. ivccvt ouutu xxx <n
statement:.
"Apparently he is intrigued with
the prospect of campaigning next
year under the title of 'High Tax
Harry.' From the partisan political
standpoint, it is eminently satisfac
tory to the Republicans for Mr.
Truman to campaign on that issue.”
But Mr. Reece said it is an “out
rageous imposition” on the people
that tax reduction has been delayed.
If the first bill to cut taxes last
July 1 had become law, Mr. Reece
said, millions of taxpayers already
would have saved about $1,000,000,
000. __

RepuBlican Governors
In New England Cool
So Far, Dewey Finds
By the Associated Press
SPRINGFIELD, Mass,. Sept. 15.—
Republican governors of New Eng
land displayed a cautious "wait-and
see" attitude today toward the un
declared candidacy of Gov. Thomas
E. Dewey for the Republican presi
dential nomination. ,
The New Yorker came here to at
tend the Eastern States Exposition
along with governors of their repre
sentatives from other Northeastern
States, all of them Republican-con
trolled except Rhode Island.
He held a three-hour hotel room
conference with Gov. Robert F.
Bradford of Massachusetts, after
which Gov. Bradford commented to
reporters when asked about the 1948
situation:
"Massachusetts is wide open right
now. And I told Gov. Dewey so.”
Gen. Bradford said the State, with
35 votes, probably would go to the
Philadelphia convention pledged to
Senator Saltonstall, as a favorite son
candidate.
If Senator Saltonstall can’t make
the grade, then what, he was asked.
"I don't think we've made up our
minds.” Gen. Bradford replied.
"I don't think this is a Dewey
State, a Taft State or an Eisenhower
State. It's too early.”
He said Gov. Dewey was ‘‘definitely
one” of the leading candidates in
this State.
Gov. Bradford gave the opinion
that if £he presidential election were
held tomorrow the high prices of
food would be -a major issue.
At a news conference earlier, Gov.
Dewey refused to comment on a
statement toy Senator Taft, a pro
spective rival for presidential nomi
nation, that food prices may be one
of the main issues in the 1948 elec
non campaign.
Gov. James L. McConaughv of
Connecticut told a reporter he be
lieved Senator Baldwin, Republican,
of Connecticut would be the favor
ite son candidate of that State’s
19 delegates.
Beyond that, he said, ‘‘I don't
know. Sentiment has not crystal
ized. Gov. Dewey has lots of friends
in Connecticut. So has Taft and
so has Harold Stassen. I don't think
you can tell how things will break
until next spiring.-’
Gov. Ernest W. Gibson of Ver
mont said that nothing has crystal
ized yet in his State. He said Ver
mont would have an uninstructed
delegation of nine.
“I ana. sure there is a lot of Dewey
sympathy sentiment in Vermont,”
he continued. “There also is some
Taft and Stassen sentiment.”
Gov. Charles M. Dale of New
Hampshire said he thought that
Gov. Dewey was "still leading" in
his State, "but I don't think they
are fixed on any one man at this
time.” He repiorted “some support”
for Mr. Stassen and for Gen. Eisen
hower, but none for Senator Taft.
New Hampshire will have eight
delegate votes.
Greek Question Faces
Fight in U.N. Council
After U.S. Maneuver
By Associated Press
LAKE SUCCESS, Sept. 15.—A
pre-Assembly battle on the
Greek question was in prospect
today in the United Nations Se
curity Council, where the United
States moved to switch the I
whole Balkan issue to the 55
nation body.
Russia opposes transferring the;
case and Delegate. Andrei A. Gro
myko was expected to use the ses
sion to level a Soviet blast at the
American maneuver and perhaps
even attempt to veto the step.
Secretary of State Marshall’s'
declaration in New York yesterday
that the “direct threat’’ of Russia’s
Balkan satellites to Greek independ
ence must be removed left no doubt
that the Balkan case was given top
priority in the American objectives
for the Assembly opening tomor
row at Flushing Meadow Park, New
The United States asked for the
Assembly-eve Council meeting un
der article 12 of the U. N. Charter,
which says:
"While the Security Council is
exercising in respect of any dispute
or situation the functions assigned
to it in the present charter, the
General Assembly shall not make
any recommendations with regard
to that dispute or situation unless
the Council so requests."
United States Delegate Herschel
V. Johnson first was expected to
press for a direct Council request to
the Assembly for action. Success
there probably would mean saving
the Council's Balkan Investigating
Commission which still is checking
border disturbances.
An alternative would be to ask the
Council to drop the case outright
and thus legally clear the path for
the United States to seek Assembly
recommendations. However, drop
ping of the case from the Council
calendar probably would spell the
j end of the Balkan commission,
I which Russia has been trying to
liquidate.
IT- Cftfi n T3,llnn,io'c QAtin/,
j premier, Traiche Rostov, charged
1 yesterday that the Bulgarian
border had been "violated nine
times by Greece" in the last four
months. He told a news confer
ence that the U. N. sub-commis
sion had failed to consider fully
the Bulgarian accusations con
cerning the Incidents and said it
"acts exclusively and one-sidedly
in favor of the Greek govern
ment and against the interests
and sovereignty of Bulgaria,”
The possibility of a Soviet veto
raised the question in the coun
cil again whether dropping items
or asking another body to act
should be considered substantive
—and subject to veto—or pro
cedural—and not subject to veto.
The United States position is
that such an action is procedural
only.
Aside from expected opposition
j from Russia and Poland, the United
States delegation anticipated sup
! port from the other members of
the 11-nation Council.
! The meeting was called by Mr.
Gromyko, now Council chairman.
| and was expected to be the last for
| at least a week due to the press of
business in the Assembly,
j The Council still has to name a
| governor for Trieste and receive re
ports on the Situation in Indonesia
j and these sessions were expected to
be sandwiched in between Assembly
meetings.

Taft in Los Angeles ,
To Defend Congress
In Speech Tomorrow
By Gould Lincoln
Stor Staff Correspondent
LOS ANGELES. Sept. 15—Sena
tor Taft, Republican, of Ohio, who
has established a reputation for
frank discussion of important public
questions of the day—except his;
candidacy for the Republican presi-:
dential nomination—arrived here;
early today on the second leg of his;
trip through California.
This promises to be a compara
tively quiet day for the near-candi
date—he is expected to make a for
mal announcement that he "chooses
to run" on his return to Ohio. Out-j
sile of calls from a number of prom
inent Southern California Republi
cans, a press conference and din-!
ner with Louts B. Mayer, movie;
magnate, the Ohio Senator has little
to do I
His public appearances begin to
morrow. when he will address the
Town Hall at noon and a Republi
can rally, staged by the party or
ganization in Las Angeles, at night.
He is expected to outline and defend
the record of the Republican Con
gress and to deal with some of the
issues that may enter the campaign
next year.
Publicity Organ Needed.
Mr. Taft has a very definite pur
pase. He believes that all Republi
can Senators and Representatives
should go to the country and tell the
people what Congress has been do
ing. He explains that when Con
gress is in session, these members j
have an ample sounding board, but;
that when Congress is in adjourn
ment, it has no publicity organ while
the Democratic administration con
tinues to grind out its propaganda
through a vast number of Govern
ment publicity agencies.
As the chief Republican spokes
man of the Senate on domestic is-1
sues—he is chairman of the Repub
lican Policy Committee of the Sen
ate—and as the leading congres
sional candidate for the presi
dential nomination next year—Mr.
Taft must do his bit of Republican
propagandizing. After all. the record
of the Republican Congress will en
ter vitally into the coming political
campaign.
So far his only speeches in Cali
fornia have dealt with the need of
a decentralized government and the
Taft-Hartlev labor law, delivered
before the California bar, a Repub
lican audience in the main, in the
Republican community of Santa
Cruz. Only a mild bit of picketing
before the auditorium, where he was
to speak, has so far interrupted the
even tenor the trip. Here in Los
Angeles, where labor is more con
centrated, the demonstration may
be more severe, as it may be per
haps in San Francisco, where he
novf
To Speak at Seattle.
No demonstration, however, will
deter the Ohio Senator from de
fending the new labor law which
bears his name. Indeed, he'has
picked Seattle, a hotbed of labor and
radicalism, for his principle speech
on the Taft-Hartley law.
In direct contract to the refusal
of Gov. Dewey of New York. Sen
ator Tafts leading opponent for
the presidential nomination, to dis
cuss public issues on his July "vaca
tion" trip to nearly a dozen Western
States, the Ohio Senator has spoken
out at press conferences on every
issue about which he was questioned.
His proclivity for frankness sends
cold shivers down the backs of ad-;
visors now traveling with him. At
the same time his engaging willing
ness to speak out boldly is making!
him friends. It- is becoming trite j
to say: “You always know where
Taft stands."
This willingness to speak at the
drop of a hat., however, has some
times its embarrassing results. The
most glaring so far on this Taft
trip occured when the Senator, dis
cussing ways of combatting today's
high and ever-increasing prices, sug
gested that the American people
voluntarily “eat less" and “eat less
extravagantly.” It was an unfor
tunate choice of words. His labor
opponents immediately rushed in
with a belittling nickname for him.
"Eat-Less Taft,” This is not going
to ruin Senator Taft. But it is the
kind of thing that may rise to
plague him later.
So far there Is little by which to
judge the political impression which
Mr. Taft has made in the West. A
couple of things check up on the
credit side for him. First, he was
sble to get his views and himself
icross to a thousand or more mem
bers of the legal fraternity of Cali
fornia. many of them politically
minded, at the meeting of the Cali
fornia Bar—the most largely at
tended meeting of its history, it is
said.
Secondly, he had opportunity
do meet the great mogul of Repub
lican politics in California. Gov. Earl
Warren, on most friendly and in
timate terms. Gov. Warren was a
guest at an informal party in the
house of Arthur B. Dunne, Senator
Taft's host at Santa Cruz, and Gov.
Warren canceled another engage
ment to remain with Senator Taft
for several hours. In adidtion, the
Governor had luncheon with Sen
ator Taft.
Another incident during nis stay
in Santa Cruz which promised to
aid Senator Taft in California was
his conference with Harry Lunde
berg. president of the powerful
sailors’ union, of the Pacific. Mr.
Lundeberg called on the Senator to
discuss with him the effect w'hich
the closed-shop provision of the
Taft-Hartiey law might have on
the “hiring hall" system by which
seampn are hired bv shiDOwners.
After the conference Mr, Lunde
berg expressed himself in friendly
terms toward Senator Taft, and
said he had found the Senator very
liberal in his interpretation of the
law. Indeed. Mr. Lundeberg ex
pressed the opinion that his con
ference with Senator Taft may have
cleared the way to prevent a tieup
of Pacific shipping. The contracts
with the shipowners expire Sep
tember 30. - Senator Taft said he
would discuss the matter in San
Francisco with the head of the
shipowners’ organization.
Mr. Lundeberg's union is affiliated
with the American Federation of
Labor, and he hates Communists.
Also Mr. Lundeberg. who went to
Santa Cruz to meet Senator Taft,
would have nothing to do with the
picket line thrown up there.
Truman Sees Big Guns
Of Missouri in Action,
But Can't Fire Them
By Joseph A. Fox
Star Staff Correspondent
ABOARD THE U. S. S. MISSOURI.
Sept. 15.—President Truman saw
the mighty 16-inch guns of the Mis
souri in action today.
He lost his opportunity to take
part in the target practice, however,
when something fouled the private
firing key rigged up for his benefit.
The regular crew of Turret 1 did all
the work, under direction of Comdr.
O. H. Wesche, gunnery officer.
Enjoys Performance.
The President enjoyed the per
formance. watching with Mrs. Tru
man and their daughter. Margaret, -
from the open fifth deck level, just
oWaiio fha tnprat
‘ Some show." he said.
It was the first opportunity the
President had to see the Missouri in
action in battle practice which1
started with the launching of two
planes from the ship to act as
spotters.
Firing what was known as "off
set'’ practice with the escorting
destroyer Dyess, eight miles to star
board on the horizon as a potential
target, the Missouri laid down five
salvos with a total of 12 rounds in
the bullseye area—about 1.000 yards
astern of the Dyess.' The ships were
making about 10 knots at the time.
fiOO Miles From Virgin Islands.
The test was conducted under per
fect weather conditions as the Mis
souri moved northeasterly about
600 miles from the Virgin Islands.
Mr. Truman spent a quiet Sunday.
He had hoped to hear Secretary of
State Marshall's United Nations
speech, but 'atmospheric conditions
prevented radio reception.
The President attended church
services on the fantail with Mrs.
Truman and Margaret in the morn
ing. The nondenominational service
was conducted by Comdr. J. R.
Schmieder. Catholic chaplain, who
said mass earlier for members of
nis iaiin.
