EXPERT By DAVID HOROWITZ Stew YORK.-,fAJP> — Dr. Leo Sachs, the young Israeli scientist of the Welzmann Institute wtio ifeftently surprised tho world by revealing that a fingertip study had convinced him and his co¬ worker, Dr. M. Bat Miriam-oft<the laroeU Institute for Biological fiesear^h^vltltat Jewflvt^^io^p^OUt.

Dr. Sachs had come to New York from Copenhagen, in which city he first announced the Israeli finding before the In¬ ternational Congress of Human Qenetics. During the exclusive interview in the UN delegates' dining room, the 6-f90t 8-tnch tall scientist— who was born In Oermahy but studied in England — disclosed that the new findings on the aecreta of fingertips have opened ap entirely new vista for future study of human populations and evolution. The genetic history of the Jews (and that of related peoples) — whose fingerprints, namely» the unique pattern of the whorls, arches and loops,, point to an uncanny almllartty — testi' fy to an absolute relatlonstiip de- spite thoutuuida of years of phy¬ sical separation, Dr. Sachs em¬ phasised. . The Israeli wizard made ^It clear that the present studies constitute only a first phase to a much wilder study which will in¬ clude deeper investigation Into the question of blood groupa. He is convinced that hitherto un¬ known factors concerning the nature of man and life which have baffled sclentlstfi will come to light through further research on the secret of blood. Dr. Sachs indicated that as soon as funds become available to the Welz- mann Institute, he and his aaao- ciat«s plan to proceed/ with the research on the blood groups. During the Interview the ami able professor took objection to (MBtlB«ed •n paga i) The 1956 campaign of the Fund I was no ordinary task. The Jewish community of Columbus was faced in 1956 with tlie double re- aponslbillty of raising maximum funds first for the ongoing Im¬ portant needs of more than 40 of its regular beneficiaries and sec¬ ond, for a special campaign to raise a sizeable amount as Its national share of the Special Sur¬ vival Fund. In 1666 there were many sound and proven reasons to raise more funds to support adequately the increasing needs of local services, as well aa the essential programs of our national organizations which provide the network of cul¬ tural ties for all Jews throughout the United States. The Special Survival Fund was launched early In the year by American Jewry In recognition of the desperate situation of the North African Jews and the fi¬ nancial plight of Israel. The North African Jews looked to Is¬ rael for safety and a place to call home and to start life anew with true dignity and freedom. Israel sought to provide a haven for 40,000 of them but when faced with an overwhelming military crisis of protecting Its .'borders f rom ^gyptlftiv invasion it had to^ spitn(l. f utidii niormaltytranatiiltti^ to ^e Jewish Agency for Immi¬ gration needs to military equip- pient and arms. And so in Columbua, the United Jewish Fund, the central fund- raising arm of the total Jewish community, Incorporated within Its organization what could very well have been a separate Inde¬ pendent appeal. At the Winding Hollow dlnijer affair Oct. 30, William Kahn, 1956 campaign chairman, will report in detail how the campaign or¬ ganization and leadership met the challenge. Mr. Kahn, In a recent report to the Board of Directors of the Fund, 4id state that the 10S6 campaign had raised the sec¬ ond highest total ever achieved in the F^^nd'a history. Every di¬ vision in the campaign surpassed by large margins Its 1905 totals. Appropriate tributes will be paid to the division leaders and work¬ ers for . having made the cam¬ paign, a huge success.
