W.dn.nltiy, April JO, If S3 --.--1 Ban On Broadcasting Of Horse Races May Be Ordered Into Effect By FCC Soon Washington - (/P) - The Federal! on scratches, mutuel prices, track Communications Commission may spell out before the year's end just how far it believes radio and television stations can 'go in giving out race track information. , Until recently the FCC, mindful of the constitutional ban on censorship as such, has left it to the discretion of individual stations. Now it has scheduled hear- · ings which all involved hope will produce a general policy. The commission got in touch last February with nearly a score of radio and television stations whose licenses were up for renewal. The FCC noted these stations regularly broadcast racing news while the races -- and off- track bookmaking-- were in progress. It said it felt public hearings would be necessary to determine whether the stations would be permitted -to -continue on. the air The commission said it was concerned that such regula broadcasts "may be of aid illegal gambling activities," conditions and similar data. Castor Reveals to 11 also* questioned whether Ihis lype of program "may preclude a well- rounded" service which broadcasting license holders are obli- galed to provide. About half of those cited for hearing on the subject promptly notified FCC that they were curtailing or abandoning regular afternoon racing broadcasts. Since the license renewing hearings were announced, the Thoroughbred Racing Association headed by Alfred G. Vanderbilt has adopted resolutions re-asserting opposition to dissemination of race information to aid bookmaking.

But it has made pretty clear, in the several piece-meal cases in which racing broadcasts have been dealt with, that it does not regard racing programs illegal in themselves, and t h a t . i t does not intend to interfere with the occasional spot broadcasting or televising of feature races. What FCC has questioned is any patlern of regularity and promptness in getting results on Ihe nir and in providing elaborate detail himself to purity of life in body, mind and spirit."
