The human rights commission found no cause Tuesday night to believe the Kids league basely a 11 program discriminates against females, and commend- cour^ cd the league for opening its membership to girls this year. The commission was acting on an informal complaint filed by Rita Huber, 971 Sixteenth street NE, who said her daughter had difficulty obtaining a registration form. She said her daughter obtained the form only after a telephone call to the city recreation commission. She also said information sheets distributed at local schools referred only to boys, with no mention of girls.
