The telegram re a d in
part:
"I am sure there is no
need for me to spell out for
you the critical nature of Is-
rael's current economic sit-

uation and the new measures
which the government was
forced to take to meet the
budget and to keep the econ-
omy in check. In June alone

IN MEMORIAM
Twenty-four R u s -
sian Jewish litera-
ry and communal
leaders were exe-
cuted by Joseph Sta-
lin on Aug. 12, 1952.
Among them were
D a v id Bergelson,
Peretz Markish, It-
zik Feffer, David
Hoffshtein, Leyb
KVitko, Solomon Lo-
zo v sk y, Benjamin
Zuskin and Eliahu
Spivak. This is the
22nd anniversary of
the "Night of the
Murdered Poets." In
their mass death,
the s e massacred
Jewish poets, these
inextinguish-
able souls, sent us
their last alert.
What we must do in
unity with them is
to heed it, not to
shrink away in hor-
ror, but to spread
this alert, and wher-
ever the Jewish self,
is threatened, to re-
act, with all the
strength of the liv-
ing, and to remem-
ber that the perse-
cution of Russian
Jews has not ended
and the threat to the
very existence of the
people of Israel has
not diminished.

000 in Israel's foreign cur-
rency reserves.
"The situation is a direct
consequence of the Yom Kip-
pur War and the necessity to
meet even heavier defense
commitments today. The peo-
ple of Israel are being asked
to carry an almost intoler-
able burden; a burden far
greater than they have ever
had to bear before.
"This means that the Jew-
ish people, through the Jew-
ish Agency, must take on an
even larger share of the re-
sponsibility for meeting vital
immigration and absorption
needs as well as the host of
human needs in all areas
generated in the aftermath of
the Yom Kippur War."
