In our issue of October 14 it was reported that the speech by Judge Rutherford delivered at the Albert Hall, London, on September 11, was cut short by American radio stations, whose directors then apologised to radio audiences for as much of the speech as had been heard. It was also stated in our report that all New Orleans radio stations declined to carry the speech. As a result of subsequent enquiries we have now ascertained that the speech was treated in this way only by the three circuits, Oklahoma City, Denver and Colorado Springs, whereas 118 stations on other circuits broadcast the speech in its entirety without interruption.
We have also been informed that none of the New Orleans stations were approached, or engaged, to carry the speech, so no question of their declining to do so ever arose.
It has also been represented to us that certain expressions were used in the same report which might appear to convey the imputation that Judge Rutherford is an advocate or preacher of atheistic views. The report was not intended to convey that impression, and we regret any misunderstanding caused by it.
