Meanwhile, it was disclosed
that the KGB, with the help
of the ovir, deceived Benja-

hunger strike at Azbel's Mos-
cow apartment.
Just before the hunger
strike--was due to begin, Go-

within a few days it he would
refrain from joining the hun-

In it, Azbel recalled his
own 15-year detention in the
Gulag Archipelago, about
which Solzhenitsyn has writ-

ger strike in prison 30 years
ago. "For each day of a hun-

he wrote. "Ten days of hun-

that even today I can become
a citizen of Gulag Archipel-
ago any day."
Letters of support were
sent to the hunger strikers
by California Senators Alan

reviously Marrieds'
Aided in Buffalo

A meeting last May of a
group of widowed -and di-
vorced Jewish women, stim-
ulated by two staff members
of Buffalo Jewish social agen-
cies, has led to formation of
a Previously Marrieds organ-
ization which carries on a
wide range of programs or-
ganized by its members.
A spokesman said the syna-
gogues, where such Jews
might have been able to go
"for comfort or counseling"
paid little attention and sin-
gle parents, particularly,
"felt like the black sheep of
the congregation."
