Commission on Motion Pictures - Federal Council of Churches

Not only is G.R. Andrews still present, but the meeting votes "That it be the policy of this Commission to work in the closest cooperation with the Church and Drama League of America." And the Commission is "not prepared to undertake pre-viewing or recommending of commercial motion picture films." [Milliken's worst fears are realized.] FCCCA. Also proposes to establish a Committee of Inquiry "to make the widest practicable study of relations of the motion picture to the public welfare and that there be included an inquiry as to the progress made to date by the MPPDA in the promotion of such relations." $7,500 is allocated for this purpose
