That date was subsequently extended to April 1, 1937. The extension was granted by the General Committee of the AAR's Operating- Transportation Division.
Along with the extension came the prohibition of advertising on all other car types except tank cars and type "L" cars. The latter took effect on January 1, 1939.
I've never seen documentation of the subsequent relaxation of these rules after WW II. Do you have any info, Guy?
