ewish Nader's Raiders' in DC
to Research Russian Jewry Problem


National Center for Jewish Policy
Studies, nicknamed "Nat's Gnats"
for Supreme Court expert Nathan
Lewin, head adviser and vice presi-
dent of the National Committee on
Law and Public Affairs (COLPA),
has announced its incorporation.
The board of directors includes
Myer Feldman, a Johnson-Kennedy
White House adviser; Marshall
Nirenberg, a Nobel laureate; Ben
Wattenberg, author and political
sciensist; author Victor Lasky;
Steven Levisohn, a National Insti-
tute of Health researcher; and Har-
vey Lieber, professor and politi-
cal scientist.
In mid-May the group placed A.
David Stern of Brooklyn in the of-
fice of Sen. Henry Jackson (Dem.,
Wash.) as a researcher on Rus-
sian Jewry problems. Stern put to-
gether an extensive study of Voice
of America broadcasting programs,
policies and scheduling.
Suzanne Last, a Princeton so-
phomore, joined Stern last
month. "I was sick and tired of
yelling about Soviet Jewry and
going to rallies — I wanted to
do something to really help," she
told the Jewish Telegraphic
She is studying Jewish financial
suport of politicians to see if large
Jewish contributors necessarily
support politicians with the best
records on matters of Jewish in-
One of the directors and found-
ers, Steven Levisohn, views the
Gnats as "Jewish Nader's Raiders"
who will research and analyze the
quality of Jewish life and culture
here and abroad. He says that they
are focusing on the problems of
Russian Jewry and related projects

like Voice of America broadcast-
ing in Yiddish.
The group made its headquarters
in Lewin's office. They brief groups
and individuals visiting Washington
on the status of efforts on behalf
of Soviet Jews in government and
what can be done. The Gnats re-
ceive no salaries, but get free room
and board, a courtesy of the Wash-
ington Jewish community.
The Gnats don't see themselves
in competition with established
Jewish organization efforts. Miss
Last told the JTA that the organ-
izations have neither the time nor
the resources for extensive direct-
ed research.
The directors hope other Jewish
organiations will use policy center
studies to effect change and help
Russian Jews.

Hadassah Opens Clinic
for Active Heart Patients

JERUSALEM—A new phase in
24-hour-a-day monitoring of pa-
tients with heart conditions has
been inaugurated at the Hadassah-
Hebrew University Medical Center
with the opening of a special
clinic for patients wearing portable
electrocardiograph tape recorders
while at work and at home.
The tape recorder is carried

in a leather case on a shoulder
strap, like a tourist's camera, and

gives a continuous electrocardio-
.j-,-gram of the- patient's heart.
The new clinic, headed by Dr.
c iz,"_hlomo Stern, is situated in the
nter of Jerusalem, and patients
'Abi;:kring their tapes to the service
for scanning. Ten hours of tam.
can be scanned in 10 minutes fok 7

The system is used for heart
patients after they leave the . hos-
pital and also for those who com-
plain of such symptoms as chest-
pains, dizziness, vertigo and
fainting, '4)tit who appear to be

The patients keep a dairy in

tivities during the day, noting by
the hour any unpleasant symptoms
or experiences. This diary is then

ovv much will the proposed
w rates really
ect your monthly phone bill?

New rates would apply almost
exclusively to your basic monthly
service charge. Don't be con-

fused by numbers. You may have
heard that Michigan Bell has
proposed a rate increase of 20%,
and you were understandably
perplexed if you thought the 20%
(more accurately 19.54%)
applied to all charges on your
total monthly phone bill. That,
for example, if you made a lot of
extra toll calls last month and
your bill was as high as $20, it
would increase another 20% to
$24 after the increase. Not so.

The 20% increase would apply
only to your basic monthly

service charges and to special
non-recurring services, such as
installing an extension or other
equipment. Any interzone or long
distance calls made in addition
to your basic monthly service
charge would cost no more after
the proposed new rates than
