Abstract: A generalized alternative ring I is a nonassociative ring R in which the identities $ (wx,y,z) + (w,x,(y,z)) - w(x,y,z) - (w,y,z)x;((w,x),y,z) + (w,x,yz) - y(w,x,z) - (w,x,y)z$; and $ (x,x,x)$ are identically zero. Let A be a finite-dimensional algebra of this type over a field F of characteristic $ \ne 2,3$. Then it is established that (1) A cannot be a nodal algebra, and (2) the standard Wedderburn principal theorem is valid for A.
