Kishinev Defendants Plead:
Only Wished to Study Hebrew

(Continued from Page 21)
his intention not to participate in
the trial because "my case is not
under the jurisdiction of the "Kish-
inev court," and "not a single wit-
ness from Kishinev has been ques-
tioned in regard to my case."
The Jewish sources said that on
the second day of the trial, de-
fendant Anatoly Moiseyevich Gold-
feld testified that most of the al-
legedly anti-soviet material he hod
had in his possession had been
approved by he Glavlit, the publi-
cation-censorship unit of the So-
viet government. Gari Kirschner,
accused of reproducing anti-Soviet
material from Israel, did not deny
the act, the source said, but con-
tended that they were used only
for private educational purposes.
Abraham Trachtenberg was said
by the sources to have asserted

An Italian Hero
on Last Mission
of His Lifetime

MILDRED, Pa. (JTA)—In this
tiny town in the central part of
the state, Essi Panichi has a dis-
tinguished visitor. His 83-year-old
brother, Samuel, has come for the
first time from his home in Pia-
nello di Cagli, province of Pesaro,
Samuel Panichi's visit, however,
is marked by more than the re-
union of brothers after many years,
for he has come to the United
States with a mission.
It was in 1944 that Panichi look-
ed about and saw his fellow
human beings slaughtered by the
Nazis and the Fascists in his own
country. He was able to save 25
Jews from death.
Panichi's home and lands were
burned as punishment and re-
taliation by the Italian and Ger-
man murderers. There were,
however, two Jews whom
Panichi, through no fault of his
own, failed to save.
Joseph Goldberg was the owner
of a large store in Vienna, which
he left behind as he fled from the
Nazis. With his wife Emma, he
reached Italy and the sheltering
protection of Samuel Panichi. Jo-
seph and Emma Goldberg, how-
ever, rejected the offered route
that led Panichi's other guests to
safety and elected to try to get
out of the country and to the Unit-
ed States by themselves. They
reached Genoa, but an informer
pointed them out to the Nazis and
they were put to death.
One of the survivors led to safety
through Panichi's efforts was the
Goldhergs' son. Panichi knows
that the son came to the U.S.
and served in the army. He be-
lieves .that the son is living in
New York City. Unfortunately he
does not remember the son's first

Remains of Pre-Herod
Building Uncovered in
Old City Excavations

man Avigad, head of an archeolo-
gical team, has disclosed that the
remains of a pre-Herodian building
of "monumental" proportions were
unearthed during excavations in the
Jewish quarter of the Old City last
He said a column base almost
two yards wide was found indicat-
ing that the structure possessed
columns at least 12 yards high,
reminiscent of the Hasmonean
palace once built in Jerusalem.
According to Prof. Avigad, such
columns were usually used in a
temple rather than a palace.

he studied the material in ques-
tion for educational and cultural
Defendant Semeon Abramovich
Levit testified that his only inten-
tion was to study Hebrew, the
sources reported. (Tass said Tues-
day that Shur was the only defen-
dant to plead not guilty. Tass said
Goldfeld, 'Kirschner. Aleksander
Galperin and Arkady Voloshin
knew the Jews who were convicted
earlier in Leningrad for allegedly
trying to skyjack a Soviet airliner.)
Per Soviet custom,. the Kishinev
trial is closed to other than espec-
ially invited guests, but even so,
the police are searching entrants
and forbidding them to bring pack-
ages into the courtroom, according
to Jewish sources. In addition, in
order to discourage crowds at the
building, the authorities have closed
down the nearby bus stop and
situated it elsewhere.
ADL Postpones Soviet Exhibit;
Pickets Say No Disruption Intended
NEW YORK (JTA) — The Anti-
Defamation League of Bnai Brith
said that it was "postponing, not
canceling" an exhibit on Soviet
Jewry that was escheduled to open
Monday at its headquarters here.
An ADL spokesman claimed the
postponement until next week was
necessitated because certain
groups, according to her, had an-
nounced they would disrupt the
The groups, the spokesman told
the Jewish Telegraphic Agency,
are the Jewish Liberation Project,
a Socialist-Zionist young adult or-
ganization, and the Jewish Defense
The spokesman stated further
that the ADL postponed the ex-
hibit in order not to subject visitors
to "disruption and violence," and
that the exhibit next week will be
by invitation only. A spokesman for
the JLP said it had not threatened
either to disrupt or to indulge in
any violence. "Our demonstration
was called to conduct peaceful
picketing outside, not inside, the
the building," he stated-
He told the JTA that the group
welcomed the Soviet exhibit but
that the ADL "is coming too late
with too little," explaining that
the plight of Soviet Jewry has not
been a "top priority" undertak-
ing by the ADL.
The JLP spokesman said that the
group's scheduled demonstration
was to focus on three elements:
the role of the ADL in Philadelphia
in identifying leaders of the JDL
to the FBI; the "smearing" of
grass-roots medical organizations
calling for community control of
hospitals and thus allegedly inciting
anti-Semitism; and the "showcase"
nature of the "token" Soviet ex-
He said the ADL's "informing"
on the JDL constituted "spying on
Jews for the FBI," adding: "Al-
though we are opposed to the JDL's
right-wing politics, what is at issue
here is the action of a Jewish es-
tablishment organization as an ac-
tive collaborator with those who
seek to suppress dissent."
The JLP's statement also pro-
tested the ADL's "defamation of
radical health groups," a refer-
ence to the ADL's charges, dat-
ing back to January, that such
groups as the Health Revolution-
ary Unity Movement and the
(Puerto Rican) Young Lords
threatened the city with "turmoil,
disruption, instability and lower
professional sandards."
Rabbi Meir Kahane, national
chairman of the JDL, told a JTA
reporter that his group had no in-
tention of participating in the dem-

a cost-of-living increase and an
additional $100,000 in premiums for
insurance and health benefits. and
will not lose vacation, sick leave
or seniority.
The average salary for profes-
sional workers under the expired
contract had been $14,000 a year,
and the average clerical worker's
salary was $126 a week, according
to the union.
The union spokesman added that
management withdrew its demands
for the right to set arbitrary work-

ing hours, to transfer professional
workers arbitrarily, to set salary
ceilings, to require retirement at
age 65 without adequate pension, to
reduce sick leave and severance
pay and to grant new employes
