This article reports that Edward Lamb, a multimillionaire who owns radio and television stations, has asked the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to renew his license to operate WICU in Erie, Pennsylvania. The FCC is reluctant to grant him that renewal because, although there has never been any suggestion that his four radio and two television stations have ever been anything but first-rate and very "American," the FCC has "in its files" information indicating that Lamb may once have "associated" with Communists.
