Dr. Stephen S. Wise yesterday announced receipt of a cable from Professor Joseph Klausner of the Hebrew University, Jerusalem, in which he asserted the innocence of Abraham Stavsky, Revisionist Zionist condemned to die for the murder of Dr. Chaim Arlosoroff, and urged a fight to save the condemned man from death.

The cable, which was received June 15, reads as follows:

“Abraham Stavsky sentenced to death in Jerusalem is innocent. In the name of justice, fight with all power to save him from death. The time is short.”

Commenting on the cable, Dr. Wise said: “It is extraordinary to find that Professor Klausner does not say that Stavsky has not been fairly tried or that his guilt has not been adequately proven, but that he is innocent.”
