    A bill now pending before Congress to create a national radio commission, a sort of censorship, is being strenuously opposed by Alderman Jacob Avery, chairman of the radio commission appointed by Mayor Dever.

    This proposed bill will vest in Congress the power to control and regulate radio transmission and broadcasting throughout the country. The Judiciary Committee contemplated a thorough story of the subject and have public hearings on the so-called White bill.

    The Council's action is the result of a resolution introduced yesterday by Alderman Avery (24th Ward), chairman of the mayor's radio commission. The resolution, which was referred to the Judiciary Committee, provided for the submission of a memorial to Congress urging defeat of the White bill and enactment of laws creating a national radio commission similar to those governing the interstate commerce commission.
