Hunger Strike Continues in Moscow; Report
Communication With Activists Severed

NEW YORK (JTA) — As
the hunger strike of three
Soviet Jews in Moscow ended
its first week today, the Stu-
dent Struggle for Soviet
Jewry reported that most of
the phones of Jewish activists
in Moscow have been dis-
connected. According to the
SSSJ, the hunger strikers
issued a statement declar-
ing, "By cutting off conver-
sation with the outside world
the KGB plans to isolate us
and minimize the meaning
of our hunger strike."
The statement appealed
"to people who sympathize
with us to demand connection
with the outside world." The
SSSJ said it obtained this

statement by calling a Soviet
Jew in Moscow whose phone
was abruptly disconnected
as he was reading a state-
ment to the Soviet Jewry
group.
Last Friday, David Azbel,
a professor of technical sci-
ences, Vitaly Rubin, an au-
thority on ancient China, and
Vladimir Galatsky, an artist,
began their hunger strike in
Azbel's apartment as "an act
of despair and protest"
against the Soviet Union's
failure to grant them exit
visas, accordin g to the
Greater New York Confer-
ence on Soviet Jewry.
Benjamin Gorochov, a
script-writer and film direc-
tor, also was due to partici-
pate in the hunger strike.
According to the SSSJ,
Gorochov is not participating
because he and his wife,
Sophia, received verbal
assurances from Soviet au-
thorities that their visas will
be granted.
An effort is under way on
the campus of the University
of Michigan—in concert with
other universities throughout
the country — to call atten-
tion, particularly to Rubin's
plight.
Rubin, 50, a specialist in
ancient Chinese philosophy
and history, applied for a
visa to leave for Israel with
his wife Ines two years ago.
His application was rejected,
and he wi
th fired from his
position with the Institute of
Oriental Studies in Moscow.
At U. of M., the effort in
Rubin's behalf has been led
by Frank Shulman, bibliog-
rapher in Asian studies, and
Prof. Rhoades Murphey, pro-
fessor of Chinese geography
and associate director of the
Center of Chinese Studies.
They joined in a nationwide
campaign to obtain signa-
tures on petitions that were
sent to -the Soviet govern.
ment. There were 90 U. of
M. names among the 1,300
signatures on the petitions,
including many well-known
scholars.
The campaign now has
taken the form of educating
the publiC and of appealing
, to Washington to intervene
in Rubin's behalf.

The Synagogue Council of
America and New York
Board of Rabbis also issued
statements.
Jerusalem Mayor Teddy
Kollek wrote to Solzhenitsyn
inviting him to come with his
family to Jerusalem.

"By such an abominable and 110
shameful action, you have
condemned yourself for a l
longer time than his exile
might last. You have con-
demned yourself forever. You
have expelled from this coun-
try the honor and the con-
. science of Russia."

spared from death or the
horrors of being imprisoned
again."

Mrs. Panov said her hus-
band was called to the Len-
ingrad visa office Monday.
She went with him but was
turned away at the door, she
said. Authorities have said
Mrs. Panov cannot leaire be-
cause her mother will not
sign the necessary papers.
Her husband has said re-
peatedly he will not leave

Mrs. Panov appealed to

Panov Ordered to Leave
Immediately—Without Galina
MOSCOW — A tearful
Galina Panov told Western
reporters that Leningrad au-
thorities have ordered ballet
star Valery Panov to leave
their help. "They are trying
to split us up, but we love
each other," she cried.
Panov said in a statement
that he feared the authorities
were trying to force him to
leave without his wife so that
they could then accuse him
of deserting her.
It also was feared that
Panov may be deported, in
an action similar to that
taken against Aleksandr Solz-
henitsyn.
The couple first applied
for exit visas some two years
ago and lost their jobs at the
Kirov Ballet. Panov was told
by officials that he could go
to Israel without his wife,
but he refused.
3 Red Army Veterans Hit
Solzhenits;in Expulsion
LOS ANGELES (JTA) —
Three extensively decorated
Red Army veterans — all of
them Jews from Minsk —
have condemned the expul-
sion of Soviet author and
Nobel Laureate Aleksandr
Solzhenitsyn as "a manifes-
tation of Stalinism in our
time."
Those words were con-
tained in a telegram sent 'to
Soviet President Nikolai Pod-
gorny by Naum Alshansky,
Yefim Davidovich and Lev
Ovsicher. A copy of the text
was obtained by the Southern
California Council for Soviet
Jews.
