ruary, have appealed to have
the case reopened, the Na-
tional Conference on Soviet
Jewry reported. The author-
ities have accepted the docu-
ments and a decision is ex-
pected in about three weeks.
The NCSJ also reported
that Anatoly Malkin, 21, of
Moscow will probably be
charged with draft evasion.
Malkin, who is being kept in
isolation, applied for an exit
visa in July 1974 and was ex-
pelled from his third year at
the university which made
him liable for conscription.
The NCSJ noted that for a
young Jew, service in the
army means postponing his
departure for seven years
because he cannot be given
an exit visa for five years
following the mandatory
two years of military serv-
ice.

The NCSJ reported that
Alexander Slunim, who is
serving a three-year sent-
ence for refusing to serve
in the army has been de-

prived of his right to re-
ceive visitors.

It also reported that in
the Moscow suburb of Ba-
bushkin, Jews seeking to ap-
ply for emigration were told
to go home because "emi-
gration is finished." In an-
other region, applicants
were told their invitations
from relatives in Israel to
come there were forged.
Stanley H. Lowell, chair-
man of the NCSJ said the
new tax aimed at harassing
Soviet Jews and these re-
ports from local regions are
an indication of worsening
conditions faced by Soviet
Jews who seek to emigrate.
Meanwhile, Jews across
the Soviet Union were
scheduled Sunday to begin
hunger strikes in connection
with the fifth anniversary of
the June 15, 1970 mass ar-
rests which led to the Lenin-
grad trials of 1970 and 1971,
the Student Struggle for
Soviet Jewry said.

In Tel Aviv, many Soviet
immigrants including for-
mer prisoners of consci-
ence demonstrated Sunday
in front of the Finnish
Embassy which repre-
sented the USSR here.
Some of the demonstrators
joined in the hunger strike
which is being held in the
Soviet Union.

In New York, a massive
campaign aimed at gaining
freedom for the scores of
Soviet Jewish prisoners of
conscience was launched at
a Foley Square rally in
Manhattan last week by the
Greater New York Confer-
ence on Soviet Jewry.
In Washington last week
passersby near the Soviet
Embassy, as well as Soviet
personnel, were greeted at
the noon hour with copies of
an "Open Letter to Soviet
Ambassador Dobrynin."
The letter said that "175
synagogues and Jewish or-
ganizations in the Washing-
ton metropolitan area, to-
gether with others in cities
throughout the United
States, Canada and Europe,
have observed the date of
June 15th as an anniversary
of the USSR's crass and
open violation of the princi-
ples of justice and human
rights."

Meanwhile, Judge Paul
Ribner, national com-
mander of the Jewish War
Veterans of the U.S.A.,
announced in Washington
that the JWV would re-
spond to the recent appeal
by two Jewish Red Army
World War II heroes to aid
in their emigration strug-
gle.

The appeal by Col (Ret.)
Efim Davidovich and Col.
Lev Ovsicher for help in
waging their "struggle
against anti-semitisim and
for the right to free immi-
gration" was made on the
occasion of the 30th anniver-

sa•y of the Allied victory in
Europe.
Col. Davidovich, the
holder of 15 medals and or-
ders for bravery in combat,
was wounded five times in
action against the Nazis.
Col. Ovsicher, also the
holder of many combat dec-
orations; was wounded in an
air battle over Stalingrad.
Both colonels have lost
their pensions and have
been subjected to continued
persecution on the part of
the KGB, for the affirma-
tion of their Jewish heritage
and their desire to emigrate
from the USSR.

A letter sent to Leonid
Brezhnev, Alexei Kosygin,
Nikolai V. Podgorny, the
commander in chief of the
soviet Armed Forces, the
Soviet Representative at
the UN and the Soviet Am-
bassador to the U.S.,
reads:

"We appeal to you in the
name of our successful com-
mon struggle against Na-
zisim to reconsider the
plight of Col. Efim Davidov-
ich and Col. Lev Ovsicher.
"The millions of allied
fighting men and women
who participated in World
War II share a common her-
itage, the desire to keep our
world free of those fascist
principles against which we
fought so bravely and so
long.
"We therefore most re-
spectfully urge that you
reinstate the rightful pen-
sions to these two heroes of
that struggle and that their
harassment from any
source cease. May we once
again recall those bonds of
determination, dedication
and friendship which united
the allied soldiers of the

world in other troubled
times."
