Neeman former president of
Tel Aviv University and
electrochemist Prof. Eliezer
Gileadi, maintained reg-
ular telephone contact both
on scientific and on personal
subjects, keeping the prom-
inent scientist informed of
world-wide efforts for his
cause. The contact was dis-
continued when the Soviets
disconnected his -telephone
after two years. In 1973,
Prof. Levich was appointed
a professor of elec-
trochemistry at Tel Aviv
When finally allowed to
leave the Soviet Union,
Prof. Levich was offered
academic posts by out-
standing academic in-
stitutions in the U.S.,
England and Israel.
Prof. Levich joins the
ranks of several other prom-
inent scientists who immig-
rated from the Soviet Union
to take up posts at Tel Aviv
University, among them
the two prominent physi-
cists, Prof. Mark Azbel and
Prof. Alexander Voronel
and mathematician, Prof.
ilia Piatetski-Shapiro.
Following Prof. Levich's
decision to join the faculty,
the University plans to de-
velop a center of Elec--
trochemistry on an interna-
tional plane, which will
offer international re-
fresher courses, summer
courses and the like.
Meanwhile, members of
the unofficial Helsinki
Monitoring Group in Mos-
cow, joined by Prof. Andrei
Sakharov, have attacked
the "Olympian calm" and
"silence" of the Interna-
tional Olympic Committee
in face of Kremlin persecu-
tion of dissidents and Jews.

Monitoring Committee

and Union of Councils for
Soviet Jews said they
have learned that, con-

The groups said the call
was made from the U.S. to

that Slepak had a visa.
Leonid's brother Alexander,
who is studying in Califor-

was incorrect after he
phoned Leonid.
