that the man in whose
honor the conference is
being held, Prof. Benjamin
Levich, world-renowned
electro-chemist, should be
allowed to attend it.
The 60-year-old scientist,
victimized in the Soviet
Union since applying to
leave for Israel in 1972, was
due to deliver the final
paper at Somerville college
of Oxford University on
Wednesday.
Levich's application for a
visa to attend the confer-
ence was ignored by the So-
viet authorities. No other So-
viet scientists were present,
even though 300 were in-
vited.

In Washington, a group of
distinguished American sci-
entists urged the Soviet
Union to permit Prof. Lev-
ich to attend the scientific
conference.
At a news conference
held Friday, under the aus-
pices of the Committee of
Concerned Scientists, Nobel
Laureate Julius Axelrod
said he would refuse in-
vitations to visit the USSR
unless Levich was permit-
ted to attend the conference
or to emigrate.
In Paris, despite a So-
viet refusal to grant them a
visa, three French lawyers
have said they are deter-
mined to go to Moscow to

Monday, Dr. Benjamin
Fein, a Soviet Jewish phys-
icist and one of the leaders
of the Jewish dissident
movement in the USSR, ar-
rived in Israel after a
three-year campaign to emi-
grate to Israel. Fein, ar-
rived together with a group.

ference on Soviet Jewry re-

The NCSJ also reported it
learned that Iosif Begun, a
Jewish emigration activist
from Moscow, who last
month was sentenced to
two years in exile for al-
leged "parasitism," was or-
dered to serve his term in
the remote town of Maga-
dan, in outer Siberia.
_Magadan is located on
the sea of Okhotsk, in an
area which contains a num-
ber of prison labor camps.
It is considered part of the
broad area known as the
"Gulag Archipelago."
The Student Struggle for
Soviet Jewry has reported
that Jewish dissidents Hillel
Butman and Joseph Men-
delevich have suffered se-
vere retaliation for their in-
sistence on their basic
rights in the Penn labor
camp in which they are in-
terned.
Mendelevich was transfer-
ed to the infamous Vladi-
mir Prison for refusing to
work on the Sabbath.
Butman was disciplined
for wearing a yellow star
on his chest to protest the
transfer of a another fellow
prisoner to Vladimir Pris-
on, and writing to his camp
commandant, inviting him
to exchange places with
him and feel the pain and
degradation of being a pris'-
oner.
The SSSJ has made avail-
able two new reports on
Jewish desidents in the
USSR : "The Jews of
Ilyinka," based on the dis-

activists of a village in the
Voronezh region of the
USSR where 90 percent of
the inhabitants are obser-
