To the Editor, Jewish Daily Bulletin:

My attention has been called to an item in a recent issue of your very welcome paper stating that Madam Paula Ollendorff had addressed Manhattan – Washington Lodge of the B’nai B’rith on the German situation. That was an error. Mrs. Ollendorff had not been with us and consequently could not have spoken to us. We had known of her presence in the city and had asked her to join us at one of our meetings. Unfortunately she did not accept our invitation.

Be kind enough to give space to this in your next issue.

To the Editor. Jewish Daily Bulletin:

Does your ## called sports editor think he can palm off a phoney excuse for the mistake he made in calling Harry Dublinsky a Polish Jew?

Mr. Weiner tries to cover himself up by saying he had checked this point with the Garden management. Why, anybody but a baby would realize that the Garden was working hand in hand with Dublinsky’s handler’s toward the same end. . . that of doping the Jewish fight fan into following a new fistic idol.

Then again, your sports writer claims he had the okay of Ring magazine on this particular point from the very beginning. It was only after Mr. Weiner had been proved wrong that he says “Ring Magazine said Dubinsky was not a Jew.” Just what is this writer trying to hand out to readers of The Bulletin?

To the Editor, Jewish Daily Bulletin:

Permit me to compliment you on your splendid new editorial page—something I felt the Bulletin needed badly. For sagacity and brilliance the articles on it, particularly those by Mr. Smolar, are unparalleled.

I would like to see a sports column, however, and another suggestion is that light stuff be given wider use than at present.

I also would like to see more book news during the week and more news on Sunday.

To the Editor, Jewish Daily Bulletin:

As a reader of your paper for some time, I am very satisfied with your complete and detailed cover-age of news concerning world Jewry. I also think highly of the opinions expressed by such eminent Jewish thinkers as Lewisohn, Frank and Ziff.

But, I feel there ss an urgent need of human interest and humor in your columns.
