Stokowski Third Jew to Join Rockefeller Entertainment Plan

The $250,000,000 Rockefeller radio and entertainment project in which two Jews are already actively interested, David Sarnoff, president of the Radio Corporation of America, and S. L. Rothafel, known as “Roxy”, who will direct the amusements has enlisted the services of another Jew, Leopold Stokowski, one of the outstanding conductors in America, who is at present leader of the Philadelphia Orchestra.

Stokowski, who has conducted only one radio concert thus far, is at present studying the electrical technique of broadcasting and is experimenting with tonal apparatus for different effects.
