Brig. Gen. David Sarnoff, chairman of the board of the National Broadcasting Corporation and of the Radio Corporation of America, was cited this week-end by the Jewish Seminary of America for his vision which has “contributed mightily to Judaism as a faith, to religion in all its manifestations, to American democracy, and to civilization itself.” The citation marked the tenth anniversary of the Seminary-sponsored “Eternal Light” program, which is presented by NBC.
