principle organ[edit]

This isn't the most important thing in the world, but it's something I'd fix if I knew how to, but I don't, so I'll bring it up here. The article claims

The magazine became a highly influential publication and, from the 1930s onwards was “the principle organ of the American cultural left from 1926 onwards."

this being apparently a direct quote from a work of Barbara Foley.

If it weren't a direct quote, I'd just change principle to principal and be done with it. But because it is a quote, I'm reluctant to do that; if it appears thus in the original, then it should probably get a [sic] rather than a correction. Does anyone have the Foley reference available? --Trovatore (talk) 01:41, 13 December 2010 (UTC)
