A ban against reflections in radio broadcasts against any race, creed or color will be considered by the Senate Interstate Commerce Committee, chairman Burton K. Wheeler indicated today.

Senator Wheeler said that something might “possibly be worked out” after the first of the year. The Committee today completed hearings on the Wheeler-White bill which proposes revision of the system of licensing radio stations.
