Vandenberg Blasts AFM Ruling onSchool Musicl

Senator Asks
For Revision
Of Radio Law
Bill Would Preven
Petrillo Interference
Ry The Associated Press'
WASHINGTON, May 29.-Senator
Vandenberg (Rep., Mich.) appealed
to Congress today to "release the
music of school children from the
domlination of Mr. James C. Petrillo,"
and he may get some action Thurs-
He introduced a bill aimed at pre-
venting Petrillo and his A.F.ofL. mu-
sicians union from interfering with
non-commercial cultural or educa-
tional broadcasts by schools. The
measure went to the Senate Inter-
state Commerce Committee, which is
considering a series of amendments
to the Federal Communications Act.
To Come Up Tuesday
Along with legislation to ban com-
mercial sponsoring of news broad-
casts and news commentators, Van-
denberg's proposal may come up for
study when the committee assembles
"If we are going to rewrite the]
radio law," the Senator told a re-
porter, "we want this in. It is one
notorious phase of the radio situa-
tion that will have to be considered
if any revision of the radio code is
to be adequate."
Affects Interlochen.
Through his demands for the use
of union musicians, Petrillo has tak-
en high school bands and orchestras
off the air, Vandenberg declared. He
cited as an example orchestras and
bands of high school students assem-
bled from all over the country each
year at Interlochen, Mich., for two
months training under expert direc-
"This has been looked on," he
said, "as about the finest type of
high school musical culture and for
years it was on national radio hook-
ups. But Petrillo took it off the air
two years ago and kept it off."

Prof. Maddy.
Raps Petrillo
Prof. Joseph E. Maddy, instructor
of radio music, writing in the May
issue of the Michigan Education As-
socia ion Journal, stated that he
objected to any union being run by
a racketeer, meaning Petrillo, who
at one time needed an armored car
and a bodyguard.
Continuing, Prof. Maddy contended
that the union did not vote on any
prohibition of educational broadcast-
ing, Petrillo did. "Does anyone doubt
that Petrillo intends to control all
educational broadcasting including
"Public indignation against Petril-
lo's acts rose to a high pitch two
years ago, but was soon forgotten. I
managed to revive the issue again
by demanding an opportunity to ap-
pear before the Senate Investigating
Committee. If the present fight a-
gainst Petrillo is lost, there will be
no educational broadcasting in the
Since Prof. Maddy is now at Inter-
lochen, The Daily was unable to ob-
tain a comment on Senator Vanden-
berg's proposed bill.
