The article presents information related to the media. The Mexican Government, in the midst of a theatrical censorship drive, has banned the production here of Tennessee Williams' play "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof." Williams' play, translated into Spanish, was to have inaugurated in two weeks the city's newest and most luxurious theatre, "Teatro Moderno." A quarterly magazine for commuters will begin publication on November 1, 1955. Plans for the magazine, to be called "The Commuter," were announced yesterday by Robert F. Baker, publisher, and William H. Baldwin Jr., editor.
