WASHINGTON (JP) The radio industry, anxious to avoid government censorship in any form, has decided to give itself careful policing.

The National Association of Broadcasters "squarely meeting the need for revision of the industry's code of practices and standards," to use its own words will create here next week committee possessing broad authority over programs. The first job of the committee will be to rewrite the association's "code of ethics" and make 'full provision" for the method of enforcement. The present code, adopted in 1933, merely pledges each member to "endeavor to prevent the broadcasting of any matter which would commonly be regarded as offensive." Teeth for Enforcement "The new Committee will attempt to meet the complaints against radio," a spokesman for the industry said. revised code will be comprehensive, with sharp teeth for enforcement. We expect it to be in operation early next year." Creation of the program committee was foremost of a series of recommendations made by a committee on procedures headed by President Neville Miller, of the association.

Some of the things up for decision by the program group are: Limits on advertising time and the nature of advertising that may be accepted; whether some mild "ens" words may be used in broadcasts; types of children's programs. Commissioner George Henry Payne of the federal communications commission has criticized the radio industry frequently for some of its children's programs. Some Complaints Justified "Some of the complaints which have been made against radio have been Justified," one NAB of- ficial said today. "The industry hopes to meet every legislative complaint made against it." i Two broadcasts Mae West's "Adam and Eve'' skit and the more recent "The War of the Worlds" resulted in numerous complaints to the commission. The commission gave considerable attention to each case, but took no punitive action.

The pres-; ent law forbids the commission to exercise any degree of censor- ship. The commission has taken the position, however, that it may re- quire a station, when applying for renewal of license, to show it has been operated in the public interest.
