Hias Halts Aid to Soviet Jews Seeking
to Leave Israel for Other Countries

understanding was reached
in Jerusalem recently that
the United Hias Service will
not aid Russian Jews who
wish to leave Israel, particu-
larly after they have been
provided with jobs and hous-
ing there.
T h e understanding w a s
reached between the Jewish
Agency and several Jewish
organizations, including Hias.
According to the under-
standing the reason is that
those Jews cannot be consid-
ered to be people in distress
and Israel c a n n o t be re-

recently met with representa-
tives of the Jewish Agency
to discuss matters of common
concern relating to Russian
Glick's statement on behalf
of Hias said:
"To date, the situation has
been of limited concern. Al-
most 10,000 Russians have
come to Israel in recent
years and less than 500 have
come from Israel and applied
to Hias in Rome for assist-
ance to immigrate to the
United States, Canada and
other western countries.
"All these Russian immi-
grants who received Hias as-
sistance had been cleared
and referred to Hias by the
Jewish Agency. The fact that
less than 1 per cent of the
USSR Jews came to Rome
from Israel is a great tribute
to Israel, its people involved
with absorption and the Rus-
sian immigrants in Israel.
"After a full discussion, it
was agreed that to keep out-
migration at minimal levels,
the Jewish Agency would
provide intensive counseling
and guidance for Russian
immigrants in Vienna and


Panov Couple
Denied Visa
Despite Pledge

ery and Galina Panov, the
Leningrad ballet dancers,
have been refused exit visas
to go to Israel despite a prom-
ise by Soviet authorities
three months ago that they
would get them if they "keep
quiet," the National Confer-
ence on Soviet Jewry re-
Jerry Goodman, executive
director of the NCSJ, said
the Panov case was in no
way related to security mat-
ters. "We are terribly dis-
appointed at this latest dis-
approval," he said.
The Panovs, who were fired
from the Kirov Ballet Co.
when they first applied for
visas more than a year ago,
were informed by an interior
ministry official, Madame
Petrova, that their applica-
tions had been rejected again.
The reason given was the
refusal of Mrs. Pa nov's
mother to approve her daugh-
ter's leaving the country.
Galina Panov is 24, and her
husband is 34.
(The London Panov Com-
mittee, which includes lead-
ing British and American
artists, expressed shock at
the refusal after an implicit
promise that visas would be
forthcoming if the Panovs
stopped making public ap-
(For that reason the Panov
Committee has been quiet for
the last three months. Now
they have been betrayed by
the Russians and a new cam-
paign is planned, a spokes-
man said.)

Jewish activists, Prof. Moisei
Gitterman and Victor Mandel-
sweig, both physicists, have
been notified that they can
leave the Soviet Union, the
Student Struggle for Soviet
Jewry reported.
Both have been the subject
of a series of refusals and
promises to get exit visas.
Gitterman has been conduct-
ing a wekely physics seminar

Druze Is Jailed for Letter Bomb

EILAT—T he new settle-
ments in northern Sinai and
the Gaza Strip have been
set up in areas of trackless
sand dunes. Agricultural de-
velopments and a road sys-
tem assuring adequate com-
munication and transporta-
tion in the area, make it
obligatory that the erosive
inroads of the moving sand
dunes be held in check.
To overcome this problem,
the Keren Kayemet Leisrael,
during the past six years,
has planted 2,000,000 tam-
arisks to stop the sands and
protect the settlements.

ent Amer icon migration

assist Jewish refugees in

"Russian Jews from Israel
who seek Hias assistance in
Rome will still require clear-
ance and referral by the Jew-

You have known Block's for a long time.- You have known that Block's

doesn't go along with what is accepted as tailoring these days. You have
known that here it is still important that the suit be in perfect harmony
with the man.
Fabrics, patterns, colors must satisfy the individual requirements
of the wearer. Size, of course, must be exact and tailoring is
approached with care. skill, and an eye to perfection. The result is
flattery, comfort, and impressive elegance . . . a suit and a man
which are one.

With the opening of its second store, the Block's you've known has
not changed, except perhaps for the better. . . better in its collection
of distinguished clothing lines . . . better in its selection of superb
haberdashery ... better in its atmosphere of warm refinement.
