Conference on Soviet
Jewry released an appeal
it received from the
parents of Odessa activist
Shmuel Bronfman in
which they "begged for
immediate intervention on
behalf of their son and
daughter-in-law."

Bronfman's wife, Raya,
the appeal said, "is dying of
leukemia. In grave condi-
tion, she was taken to the
Slobodka regional hospital."
The Bronfmans were
recently refused a visa to
Israel on the grounds that
"the Soviet Union has the
capability of taking care of
life as well as death," the
conference reported.
It also was reported that
Yuri Vudka, a former
prisoner of conscience, was
told by emigration
authorities in his Ukrainian
hometown Pavlograd, that
he had better put any
thoughts of going to Israel
out of his mind.

Vudka was recently
released from prison after
serving seven years of
hard labor on a vague con-
viction on "anti-Soviet ac-
tivity."

In London, it was
learned _ that the Soviet
statistical annual has
the national composition
of the student population
of the USSR since 1972.

One reason for this might
be that whereas previously
comparisons with earlier
data showed an increase in
the number of Jewish
students, similar com-
parisons after 1972 would
have provided statistical
evidence of anti-Jewish dis-
crimination in admission to
higher learning.
This is the conclusion
reached in a study
published by the Institute of
Jewish Affairs in London. It
was prepared by Dr. L.
Hirszowicz, senior research
officer at the Institute and
editor of its journal, Soviet
Jewish Affairs.
