certain food each month; at
the first breach of regula-
tions you're deprived of that
right. No food parcels or
food from visitors are per-
mitted.
"You're then brought to
the neighboring 'working'
cell, where for eight hours
you execute some monoton-
ous, exhausting work,
under constant surveil-
lance. If you stop working
because the quotas are im-
possible to fulfill even by
trying very hard, the ad-
ministration has a wide
field for more punishment.
In the evening you're
returned to your live-in
cell, each of which is iso- .
lated from the other. No
sound can penetrate the
very thick walls. Any at-
tempt to communicate
with prisoners in other
cells is punished.

THE ULTIMATE
RES RT!

"Theoretically, you're
entitled to medical assis-
tance, but if you're ill the
doctor doesn't appear for
days. When he does come
and gives a prescription,
you can't have the medicine,
because it's forbidden to
have any in the cell. It's
especially difficult concern-
ing teeth, a complaint
Anatoly has, and the dentist
appears only three times a
year, but not for those in the
PKT.
"In the PKT, it's permit-
ted to receive Soviet news-
papers, have five Soviet
books and hear radio prop-
aganda programs from
Moscow at prescribed times,
another channel of
psychological pressure. One
has nothing in the punish-
ment cell.
"Time spent in the
punishment cell is added to
the time spent in the PKT.
Since the punishment cell is
the most popular punish-
ment, prisoners often stay
in the prison building for
seven-nine months, instead
of six, sometimes longer."

Danot Pancreas
Could Replace
Insulin Injections

JERUSALEM (JNI) —
Israel's Danot Industries
has concluded a license
agreement for the develop-
ment of an artificial pan-
creas conceived by Univer-
sity of Southern California
scientists. Within two years-
Danot estimates the man-
ufacture of an implantable
artificial pancreas which
regulates the blood-sugar
level of diabetics through a
constant discharge of insu-
lin — replacing daily injec-
tions.
After implantation, the
patient can lead a com-
pletely normal life, except
for an insulin shot every 4-6
weeks to fill the internal re-
servoir of the system. The
number of diabetics depen-
dent on insulin totals five
million in the U.S., Europe
and Japan. In the U.S.
alone, that number grows
by 60,000 annually.
