UNITED NATIONS, (AJP)-Our modest "vagrant viking" col¬ league Peter Freuchen -who covers the UN 'for the Danish dally PoUtUcen aa one of hla many exploratory ventures-surprised most of hlfl friends here at the United Nations last week when he answered correctly the $64,000 question on the awesome, never-ending topic of the Seven Seas. Truly speaking^ few here really thought Peter had It In him. During press conferences with Mr. Hammarskjold, Peter always seems to be the one to Inject a rather humerous question creating somewhat of a stir in the conference room. Peter himself, however, irases the question in all seriousness, and his huidiimnn Dag Hammarskjold politely an¬ swers to the satisfeu^tlon of all. Thus; Peter Freuchen always stands vindicated. But answering the $64,000 question--that was something else. His colleagues here will now think twice before dismissing lightly any of his future questions during press conferences. Readers may be Interested to know that Peter had a Jewish grand¬ mother and that he Is presently married to a Danish-Jewish girl. His first wife was Eskimo, by whom he had two daughters. When the Israeli-Arab question was being discussed in the Security Council Peter often took your correspondent aside, saying; "Dave, the situation really looks serious, we Jews muat stick together and do something." Appearing grim and earnest, Peter's main worry has been the Arab refugees. Some way must be found to settle their problem, he Insists. While not always sympathetic to the Israeli cause. Peter's "Jewlshness" always Comes out when something goes wrong for Israel. When Klbla and other similar incidents were being debated, Peter would stalk the UN corridors In a let-down mood taking the UN criticisms as a sort of personal affront. And no wonder! — Peter Freuchen, who served In ' the Danish underground during the ! Hitler holocaust, was Instrumental' in saving thoutuUidM ct Jofvish Uvas | from the clutches of the Nazi > beasts whom he defied, often en- i dangering his own life. "For a few I weeks the salvation of the Jews! absorbed the energy, the time and i the resources of the underground," Peter says In his book, Vagrant Viking. ATTENDING NATL IfADERSHIP CONFAB "Some of the Jewish people were ] saved by being put temporarily In Danish prisons where the Germans never thought of looking for them. Others were entered In hospitals under false names. Sick people who could be returned to their homea without endangering their Uvea SARATOGA CALIF. — Robert Garek, Richard Gurevitz ahd Larry Haas ot Columbus, O., are among some 150 college and high school students who will attend the ninth annual National Leadership Insti¬ tute Aug. 1-13 here at the Camp for Living Judalam, maintained by the Union of American Hebrew Congregations.

Some | j^^.^^ Kipplin ot Canton; Stanley Krawetz and Charles Moore of death notices appeared and fu¬ nerals were staged while they went underground and waited for pas- sago to Sweden. One wealthy Jew," Peter adds, "paid a fortune to the underground to refund all the fishermen who took his people across the sound. On tholr way to their exile In Sweden some Jewa ptiHscd through my houae where there waa always a strange collec¬ tion of guests ..."
