ernment on the physical
health of prisoner of con-

was receiving antibiotics in
the prison hospital.
But the Student Strug-
gle for Soviet Jewry said
that reports from the
Soviet Union which
reached the Interna-
tional Committee for
Anatoly Shcharansky,
headed by Rep. Robert
Drinan (D-Mass.), said
that Shcharansky had
suddenly collapsed while
at work in the Perm labor
camp and was taken to
the camp's hospital, a
move usually reserved
only for inmates who are
quite ill.
At the time of his col-
lapse, the SSSJ said,
Shcharansky had also been
notified that the visit of his
mother and brother
scheduled for December was
cancelled, possibly in retal-
iation for a strong letter he
had sent to President
Leonid Brezhnev complain-
ing about the severe condi-
tions in the camp.
The SSSJ also said that a
film, "Lies and Hatred,"
which attacked
Shcharansky and his wife
Avital, was shown on Soviet
television recently.
Meanwhile, the SSSJ re-

ported that there is a dearth
of Hebrew teachers and
books in Russia.
It reported there are some
30 "unofficial" Hebrew
teachers in Moscow and one
in Kiev. Most of the refus-
niks learn Hebrew on their
own.

Israel Arrests
Russian Agent

TEL AVIV (JTA) — A
Ramallah physician has
been arrested by Israeli se-
curity agents as a Russian
spy. The announcement
made by a military spokes-
man because the suspect
was arrested on the West
Bank did not identify hiin
by name but said he worked
for the KGB, the Soviet
secret police.
It described him as about
30 years old and a graduate
of a medical school in the
Soviet Union where he was
recruited by the KGB. He
was said to have been active
among Palestinian students
in the USSR and that prior
to his return to Ramallah he
was given certain missions
to carry out for the KGB on
the West Bank.
He was instructed to
transmit his information
via KGB channels at the
Soviet embassy in Amman,
Jordan the announcement
said.

Anti-Semitism
in Amsterdam

AMSTERDAM (JTA) —
At least three Jewish organ-
izations here have received
anti-Semitic pamphlets
during the past week. The
three are the Jewish Cul-
tural Center, the
Maimonides Lyceum and
Habonim, the Labor Zinoist
youth organization. The
pamphlets show soldiers in
Nazi uniforms trampling
Jews, and state: "Amster-
dam is not for Jews."

When men are most sure
and arrogant they are com-
monly most mistaken, giv-
i ng views to passion without
that proper deliberation
which alone can secure
them from the grossest ab-
surdities.
