$25,000 for Charities to be Specified by His Wife
The will of Andrew Saks, who died at Sherry's on April 8, was admitted yesterday in the Surrogate's Court for probate. The petition does not give the actual value of his estate but merely states that it is worth more than $10,000, all in personalty. Its estimated value is $2,000,000.

The will bequeaths $25,000 to charity. Mr. Saks did not designate in the will what institution he favored, but provided that these be named by his wife. The rest of his property is distributed as follows: to Jennie R. Saks, his wife, life estate and personal effects; to Leila S. Meyer, a daughter, $100,000 and a share in the remainder in the residuary estate; to William A. Saks and Horace A. Saks, sons, equal shares in the remainder in the residuary estate; to Leonard C. Levey, Jr., a grandson, $10,000 and the income of and a share of the remainder in the residuary estate; and to Jane Meyer, a granddaughter, $16,000.
