See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Senate Bill for a “National Act against discrimination in Employment” was debated in a closed session of the Senate Labor and Public Welfare Committee today by Charles Tuttle of New York, proponent of the measure, and Donald Richberg of Chicago, opposing it. Senator Robert A. Taft, of Ohio, chairman of the Committee, told reporters that the Committee would not act on the Bill today but would probably set a date of approximately a week from now to vote on it.
