JDL'ers Freed in DC; Kahane to Arm Residents

Math Genius Named
Full Professor at 22

WASHINGTON (JTA) — Three
members of the Jewish Defense
League, all college students from
New York City, were freed Friday
of charges of unlawful entry onto
Soviet Embassy grounds here.

Chief Judge Harold H. Greene of
Superior Court dismissed the
action, brought by the Metropoli-
tan Police, after the Embassy
failed to produce a complaining
witness to substantiate the charge
against Arie Illowitz, 18; Joseph
Weiss. 19; and Gene Kleinhedler
18.
The trial without jury of Rabbi
Meir Kahane, national JDL chair-
man, and three other members
was concluded Wednesday, with
Judge Greene reserving decision.
The JDL'ers had been charged
with demonstrating within 500
feet of the embassy.

CHARLES FEFFERMAN

CHICAGO — Perhaps the young-
est man ever to hold a lull pro-
fessorship at a major university
is Charles L. Fefferman, a 22-
year-old mathematicial genius who
has been appointed to lifetime
tenure at the University of Chi-
cago.
Dr. Fefferman became inter-
ested in math in the fourth grade
and began taking college courses
at the University of Maryland at
14. At 15, he published his first
research paper and at 20, received
his doctorate at Princeton. He
came to Chicago as a teaching
fellow last year.

Charges against Michael Le-
Bovich and Kenneth J. Gorelick,
two of the six Jewish Defense
League members on trial here,
were dismissed earlier for lack of
evidence.

Prosecuting attorney John C.
Lenahan told Chief Judge Harold
Greene of the District's Superior
Court that the six were demon-
strating within 80 feet of the Soviet
embassy on June 25. However,
police could not identify LeBovich
or Gorelick and charges against
them were dropped.
