Dr. Marvin D. Siegel calls our
attention to an inadvertent omis-
sion of the name of his father,
Nathan Siegel, from the article
which failed to mention him as suc-
cessor to the Hyman Altmans in
sponsoring the Yiddish Radio Hour.
"Mr. Siegel was associated with
the Jewish Hour for almost as long
a period as the Altmns were," Dr.
One other letter, also written
with unjustified bitterness, came
signed "those of us who enjoyed
the Jewish Hour with Mr. Siegel."
The letter praises Mr. Siegel's ac-
tivities and states: "You did not
mention his name in the article
and implied that it was because of
him that the program is now off the
air." There was, of course, no such
implication. The Jewish News com-
ment dealt with the pioneers and
concluded with reasons for demise
of all Yiddish-oriented functions.
Mr. Siegel's role was not in ques-
tion under any circumstances.
