Globke, Servatius Summoned as Witnesses in Nazi Trials;
Find Victims' Valuables in Vienna; Memorials Dedicated

BONN (JTA) — Dr. Hans
Globke, State Secretary to former
Chancellor Konrad Adenauer, and
Dr. Robert Servatius, counsel for
Adolf Eichmann in his Jerusalem
trial, were the principal witnesses
in the trial here of Max Merten,
former key German occupation of-
ficial in Greece.
The latter is on trial on charges
of making false accusations in dec-
laring publicly five years ago that
Dr. Globke, as a major official in
the Nazi Justice Ministry, opposed
a Merten proposal to save a large
number of Jews from deportation
from Salonika to Nazi death camps.
According to Merten, Eichmann
agreed to the proposal and then

telephoned Dr. Globke, who al-
legedly opposed it. Merten repeated
the charges in full when he ap-
peared at the trial last week. Dr.
Globke charged that the Merten
story was false and demanded an
investigation which led to Merten's
indictment and trial.
Dr. Globke said in his testimony
that t h e entire story was an
"absolute falsehood," that he had
never had any official contact with
Eichmann, then head of the Gestapo
Jewish Affairs department, and
that he had met Eichmann only
once. He also testified that even
if Eichmann had wanted to tele-
phone somebody to ask permission
in such a situation, that he

Dr. Fritz Kahn's 'The Human Body':
Most Valuable Guide for Every Home

Dr. Fritz Kahn; author of a num-
ber of books on human biology,
whose "Man in Structure and Func-
tion" is among the best available
works on the human anatomy, has
produced another large, remark-
ably well illustrated work that
emerges as a great contribution
towards an understanding of the
functions of the body.
"The Human Body," published
by Random House, is an encyclope-
dic work. It is complete, thorough,
written so that the average lay-
man can understand it and benefit
from it, and at the same time it
will no doubt add to the merito-
rious works that will be of assist-
ance also to the professionals.
There are 32 full - color
illustrated pages that assist the
reader in understanding the
body and its functions, and the
total number of 325 illustrations
in the book are part of a truly
great product on a vital subject
that is little understood but be-
comes better known thanks to the
able physician-author.
Dr. Kohn's immense work,
with its numerous diagrams, its
multiplicity of facts, serves, with
clarity, as a guide to the human
body, as an explanatory volume
that introduces the reader to the
mysteries of the human functions,
to the wonders that make them
The cells, the fat, the muscles;
the heart, the blood vessels, the
kidneys, the brain; the male and
female sex organs and their re-
productive functions; respiration,
digestion, taste, smell, hearing,
sight — these and many, many more
are the elements and functions
elaborated upon.
Dr. Kahn's "The Human Body"
is so valuable, so well outlined, so
important, that it ought to be in
every home as an immediately
available guide for a knowledge
of the human functions.

Linked with Dr. Kahn's "The
Human Body," we thus have a
great work for adults and a com-
panion volume for the youth.

Another in this series of in-
structive books, "The Question
and Answer Book of Space, was
written for Random by Ruth A.
Sonneborfi, illustrated by John
It is another immensely valu-
able work explaining to the young
reader Space, Aeronauts, Rackets,

(Globke) was not in a position then
to deal with such a request because
it was outside his duties.
Dr. Servatius testified that, at
the start of the Eichmann trial in
Jerusalem, he had asked Eichmann
about the Greek case and that
Eichmann then said he could not
recall either Merten or Globke but
that later. Eichmann told him "now
I remember." Dr. Servatius said
that Eichmann had not wanted to
involve Dr. Globke in his trial be-
cause he hoped that the West
German Government would ask his

considered the worst act of vandal-

an intensive search, police arrested
