Chair at Weizmann
Institute Will Honor
Memory of Meyerhof
REHOVOT, Israel — The Volks-
wagen Foundation has established
a Chair in Molecular Biology at
the Weizmann Institute of Science
honoring the memory of Otto
Meyerhof, a German-Jewish Nobel
Laureate, whose work profoundly
influenced the progress of physi-
ology and biochemistry, and biol-
ogy as a whole.
The first incumbent of the Otto
Meyerhof Chair will be Prof. Leo
Sachs, head of the institute's gene-
tics department. who has made
important contributions to the
study of the mechanism of viral
and chemical carcinogenesis, and
of cell differentiation.
Prof. Sachs' experiments are de-
signed to analyse, at the cellular
and molecular level, the processes
by which normal cells are trans-
formed into tumor cells, and by
which normal cells acquire their
specialized functions during de-
Otto Meyerhof, who was born in
Hanover in 1884, was not only an
eminent biologist, but also engaged
in philosophy. Moreover, his broad
knowledge of physics and chemis-
try, as well as of biology, made
it possible for him to adopt an
integrated view of scientific pheno-
Meyerhof received the M.D.
diploma at the University of Hei-
delberg. After five years at the
Kaiser-Wilhelm Institute of Biol-
ogy in Berlin-Dahlem, he joined
the new Kaiser-Wilhelm Institute
in Heidelberg to build up his own
department. Meyerhof left Ger-
many for Paris in 1938, and fol-
lowing the Nazi invasion of
France, he and his wife Hedwig
managed to reach the United
States after many difficulties. He
continued to work actively and
productively until his death in

West Bank Arab Leaders Halt
JERUSALEM (JTA) — Arab
leaders of the West Bank have
called a halt, at least temporarily,
to activities directed toward pos-
sible separate peace talks with
Israel. It was also disclosed for
the first time that the Arab lead-
ers had discussed some of their
peace plans with British, Ameri-
man and other foreign consular
officials in Jerusalem.
That disclosure apparently em-
barrassed the governments in-
volved. Several embassies ex-
plained that their consular officials
were not trying to pressure or in-
fluence anyone but sought merely
to find out what kind of plan
might be acceptable.
The acting consul general of
Great Britain told Israel For-
eign Ministry sources here that
no initiative had been taken by
legation officials to propagate a
plan discussed by various groups
of West Bank Arab leaders to
request a United Nations man-
date for the West Batik for five
years. The British official said
he called on the foreign ministry
at his own initiative after read-
ing press reports of a meeting
of Arab notables in Nablus
where a British vice consul was
said to have explained the plan.
According to the acting Consul
general, a vice consul attended

ministers said in speeches last

that Palestinian Arabs should be
Israel's partners in peace discus-

flict because they could not solve
problems on a regional scale.

The solution to summer heat may be
right at your feet. All you need to do
is cool and dry the air in your home.
If you have a forced air heating
system, you have ductwork. And a
furnace blower. So you're already
moving and filtering air.
That's a big part of an electric
central air conditioning system. All
that's left is to cool the air and wring
the steamy dampness out.
Add two compact units—cooling
coil and condenser—and, presto, your
heating system becomes a cooling
system too. A system that cools, dehu-
midifies, cleans and quiets your home.
For less money.
That's right. Electric air conditioning
costs less to buy, less to install, less
to operate than the flame type.
Electric cooling works efficiently,
like your refrigerator. Cools 'a 1,200-
square-foot house for as little as
$24.00 per season.
Call an air conditioning contractor,
right away. He'll give you a free
estimate and show you how electric
central air conditioning is well within
