WASHINGTON (JTA)—A Mil-
waukee Jew who, as a youngster,
was a classmate of Leonid Brezh-
nev, first secretary of the Com-
munist Party of the USSR, has
writen nine letters to Brezhnev ap-
pealing to him to halt anti-Semi-
tism in the Soviet Union but has
received no reply, the syndicated
Drew Pearson column reported
The column, written by Jack
Anderson, Pearson's associate, re-
ported that the letters had been
sent to Brezhnev by Nathaniel
Kruglak, who had studied with
Brezhnev hi a schoolhouse at a
Ukrainian factory town known as
Kamenskoye, l a t e r renamed
Dneprodzerzhinsk. According to
Anderson, Kruglak had "told his
story to the State Department."
After failing to receive a reply
from Brezhnev to his first eight
letters, Kruglak wrote to the Soviet
leader: "Public opinion here and
in Europe is condemning your ad-
ministration for persecuting 3,000,-
000 Jews in the USSR."
