He Altered Poem to
Deny West Fodder

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
- to The Jewish News)

• PARIS — Yevgeny Yevtushen-
ko, - the Soviet poet, admitted
Wednesday that he had made
changes in his world famous
poem "Babi Yar" for political
reasons because the West had
used the.poem for a propaganda
effort to "pretend" that anti-
Semitism was widespread in the
Soviet Union.
The poet came to Paris for a
press conference held in con-

Semitism is one of the seeds of
Fascism everywhere in the
Pressed by many of the French
journalists about the status of
anti-Semitism in Russia, the poet
said that anti-Semitism "is no
more of a problem in Russia
than it is in many other coun-
tries. Every nation has its fools."
