Sabin Appeals to Soviet Authorities

The president of the Weizmann Institute of Science, Albert B. Sabin, has appealed to Soviet authorities to allow the emigration to Israel of a famous Russian cybernetics expert, Prof. Alexander Lerner, and his son and daughter, both of whom are also scientists. Sabin cabled the Soviet authorities Dec. 12, advising them that the three Soviet Jewish scientists would be given positions at the Weizmann Institute. When Sabin received no reply to his request, he made his efforts public.
