Bre z hnev's Visit Stirs Speculation

(Continued from Page 1)
These circles point out that
while Brezhnev, who is due
to hold important economic
talks with President Nixon,
would like to enjoy as pleas-
ant a political climate as
possible during his stay in
the U.S., the Soviet Union
has suddenly reduced the
number of exit visas granted
to Jews. This month, these
circles say, fewer than 800
visas were granted, about
half of those allocated for a
similar period in past months.
"It looks as if someone in
the Kremlin is trying to make
Brezhnev's talks in Washing-
ton as difficult as possible,"
these sources told the Jewish
Telegraphic Agency. Brezh-
nev is scheduled to arrive
Saturday for the 10-day U.S.
visit.

17,000 Former Soviet Jews
Urge Senate to Adopt
Jackson Amendment
NEW YORK (JTA) — Ye-
cheskel Poliarevich, a form-
er prisoner in a Siberian
strict regime labor camp now
living in Israel and chairman
of the Association of Former
Prisoners of Zion, arrived
Sunday at Kennedy Airport
from Israel with a petition
signed by 17,000 Soviet Jews
who recently emigrated to Is-
rael, asking the Senate to
adopt the Jackson Amend-
ment.
The petition, sponsored by
the association in conjunction
with the Association of Soviet
Immigrants in Israel, was
brought to Washington by
Poliarevich and Yitzhak
HeimOwitz, an Israeli lawyer
who was born in New York
and settled in Israel in 1968,
and Mikhail Shepshelovich, a
Soviet Jewish activist who
recently emigrated from the
USSR to Israel. The three
men presented the petition
to Sen. Henry M. Jackson
(D. Wash.) and other con-
gressmen on the steps of the
Capitol Building. Poliarevich
and Heimowitz are members
of the Herut Party in Israel.

sented Monday to Sen. Henry
M. Jackson (D. Wash.). and
Rep. Charles A. Vanik (D.
Ohio) in Washington.
("The promise of the Soviet
government to suspend im-
plementation of the infamous
education t a x regulation,"
the petitions said, "does not
solve the problem of masses
of Jews throughout the Soviet
Union who want to follow in
our footsteps — to return to
our land. The problem is the
denial of this human right."
The presentation was made
on the Capitol's steps.)
Seventeen Moscow Jews
were arrested and later re-
leasd with a warning that if
they continued to demonstrate
they would be "sent away,"
the National Conference for
Soviet Jewry reported. Six of
the arrested Jews were seized
outside the Kremlin walls
after they began a hunger
strike to protest the failure
of Soviet authorities to grant
them exit visas.
The other 11, all activists,
were picked up at various
points in the city. There was
no indication w ti e r e they
would be sent if they dis-
obeyed the orders not to dem-
onstrate, the NCSJ said.
The six were identified as
Valery Krizhak and his wife;
Dr. Alexander Luntz, a math-
ematician; Dr. Vladimir Ra-
ginsky, a physicist; Dr. Vik-
tor Brailovsky, a cybernetic-
ist, and Edna Nudel, whose
occupation was not known.

Israeli secret service had

sible Arab terrorist attacks
on Jewish - run installations
here during the anniversary

The sources said the spe-

on "red alert" at Schoenau
and at Vienna airport and
railroad stations. They said
the "Cobra" force was made
up of specially-trained police
officers, familiar with mod-
ern-day guerrilla tactics. The
men were brought in from all
parts of this Alpine nation,
the sources said.
So far, no Arab attacks on

said that exit visas may be
issued shortly to Valery and
Galina Panov, provided that
they maintain a low profile
and desist from anti-Soviet
agitation for a reasonable
period of time.
Yaacov Agmon, who at-
tended the recent Interna-
tional Theater Institute Con-
gress in the Soviet capital,
said he visited the Panovs,
who were fired from Lenin
grad's Kirov Ballet Co. 14
months ago after they applied
for exit visas to go to Israel.
Agmon said the Panovs told
him they still wanted to go
to Israel and that they were
unable to get work. He said
he approached Soviet author-
ities, including people in the
ministry of culture which
hosted the ITI congress.
Dan Raginsky, a Jewish
scientist in Moscow, told the
newspaper •Maariv that So-
viet authorities are broadly
hinting to Jewish activists
that they will get visas if
they "sit quietly" especially
during Communist Party Sec-
retary Leonid I. Brezhnev's
visit to the U.S. beginning
next week.
According to Raginsky, 10
Jewish activists were re-
cently summoned to KGB
(secret police) headquarters
and told that they would get
their visas within two years
or possibly by the end of this
year if they behaved. Four
other activists who have been
given visas were warned by
the authorities that their exit
permits would be revoked if
their friends continued to
"make trouble."
An exit visa will be granted
to Gedalia Kipnis of Minsk
who was recently released
from jail where he had spent
five months awaiting a trial
which Soviet authorities can-
celed last week, Jewish
sources in the Soviet Union
reported.
At the same time, a Lenin-
grad Jew who applied for an
exit visa 18 months ago, was
sentenced to a total of 21/2.
