Dr. Lazar Fuchs, editor of the Lodz Jewish daily, Folksblatt, died here suddenly today. He was forty-three years old and had been editor of the paper since 1923.

Dr. Fuchs, a graduate of the University of Warsaw and a mathematician of note, entered the field of journalism in 1913, beginning as a reporter on the Lodz Morning Journal. During the World War, he was active in adult education and was the author of a number of textbooks.

In politics he was a Zionist Socialist and was a candidate of that party in the elections to the Polish Sejm. He was noted for exhaustive works he had written on the activities of Ievno Aseff, notorious police spy who had a long career as a revolutionary in Czarist Russia.
