They are Professor Selman A. Waksman of New York and Professor Boris Chain, the Scientific Director of the International Research Center for Chemical Micro-Biology in Rome.

The World Jewish Congress leader, who is on his way back to Argentina from Europe, met with Professor Chain while in Italy and then flew here to see Dr. Waksman. The two scientists will visit Latin American universities and medical schools and will consult with governmental health departments in the course of their visits.
