* Aaron Weintraub, one of the last survivors of the Jewish Legion, died on Wednesday at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. He was 97 years old and lived in New York City. He died of heart failure, the family said. Born in Warsaw, Weintraub came to the United States in 1912 and worked for many years as a designer and production manager in the garment industry. In 1916, he enlisted as a member of the 38th Battalion of the City of London Regiment of Royal Fusiliers. The 38th was one of three battalions in the Jewish Legion, which fought for the British army in World War I in hopes of gaining a homeland in Palestine. A member of the Zionist Organization of America, he attended the World Zionist Congress in Jerusalem in 1956 as a delegate for the conservative Revisionist party. He is survived by a daughter, Carol Sege of Potomac, Md.; a son, Dr. Herbert Weintraub of Bethesda, Md.; eight grandchildren; and eight great-grandchildren.

* Charles W. Charny, 90, a urologist who pioneered the study of male infertility, died Tuesday at a Philadelphia hospital from complications of a stroke. In the early 1950s, Mr. Charny &L combined general urologic surgery with a growing practice in the treatment of infertile men. In 1962, he became the first physician in the United States to perform a testicle biopsy as a method of diagnosing infertility. He was the senior attending

urologic surgeon at Albert Einstein Medical Center from 1956 to 1969.
