Mrs. Ida Kaminska, the Yiddish actress, was in “satisfactory condition” today with a “possible cardiac complaint” in Jewish General Hospital here. She was taken to the hospital yesterday following a complaint of severe headaches for three days, her husband, actor Marian Melman, told the JTA.

Mrs. Kaminska has been appearing here in the Place des Arts in the Yiddish classic “Mirele Efros.” With her are her husband and daughter, Ruth Kaminska, all former members of the Jewish State Theater of Warsaw. Montreal was their first stop on a tour with “Mirele Efros.” Performances were cancelled because of her illness.
