* NBC Is Censured for 'Vulgar' Broadcast of 'Adam and Eve'---59 Substations Are Criticized--Company Apology IS Rejected

Tells of famous actress Mae West's radio program "Adam and Eve" in which protest arose due to inappropriate scenes. These scenes would be considered Disney like in today's society.

Other news of the day throughout. Good condition.
