The three newspapers of this city, the Star, News and Times, announced agreement here to extend full cooperation to the Indiana Fair Employment Practices Commission by prohibiting acceptance of employment advertisements expressing discrimination as to race, color or religion. The newspapers have made written policy statements of their position to the commission.

Previously, following complaints by the Indianapolis Jewish Community Relations Council, the News and Star had banned all classified advertising which was discriminatory to the Jewish people.
