IN al

the immediate release of
Soviet Jewish activist
Anatoly Shcharansky, who
is currently serving a 13-
year prison sentence in the
Soviet Union.
The young Jewish scien-
tist has been on a hunger
strike since the eve of Yom
Kippur to protest against
the conditions of his deten-
tion and Jewish sources say
his life is in danger.
In Paris a group of promi-
nent French intellectuals,
including Nobel Prize win-
ners, have appealed to the
French government and to
world public opinion to
intervene on behalf of
Shcharansky.
Among the signatories
of the appeal were scien-
tists Alfred Kastler,
Andre Lwoff and Fran-
cois Jacob; math-
ematician Laurent
Schwartz; Philosopher
Vladimir Jankelvitch;
and singer-actor Yves
Montand.
In New York a shofar was
sounded in front of the
Soviet Mission to the
United Nations as some 400
students from Yeshiva Uni-
versity and Stern College
demonstrated Monday and
Tuesday in support of their
fellow students and faculty
members who began a fast
last week in solidarity with
Shcharansky.

The actions in front of the
Soviet Mission were coordi-
nated by the Student Strug-
gle for Soviet Jewry, which
has conducted a daily vigil
at the Mission since
Shcharansky began his fast.

In a related development,
Feliks Kochubievsky, a
Soviet Jewish emigration
activist, has been charged
under the Soviet criminal
code of "circulation of fabri-
cations known to be false
which defame the Soviet
state and social system," it
was reported by the Na-
tional Conference on Soviet
Jewry.
He faces a maximum
penalty of three years
imprisonment or internal
exile, the conference
said. •
The 52-year-old electrical
engineer was arrested Sept.
12 as a result of his attempts
to establish a "USSR-Israel
Friendship Society," which
included the publication of a
volume which outlined the
positive aspects of USSR-
Israeli relations.
He has been completely
isolated from his family as
the Soviet authorities have
prohibited his wife, in
Novosilirsk, and his father
in Kharkov, from sending or
receiving any letters or
packages.
Meanwhile, Soviet KGB
officers detained a Jewish
activist from Moscow, Inna
Speranskaya-Shelmova,
after they searched her
apartment for seven hours
last week, according to re-
ports reaching hey e from
the Soviet capital.
The KGB officers con-
fiscated 100 items, includ-
ing tape recorders, a
radio, several copies of
the now-banned "samiz-
dat" journal, Jews in the
USSR, and 450 rubles
(about $630). Police also
seized two documents re-
lated to Dr. Iosif Begun, a
friend of Speranskaya -
Shelmova.
Begun, a former Soviet
prisoner of conscience and a
refusenik since 1971, who
happened to be visiting
Moscow and walked into her
apartment as it was being
searched, was also detained
by the KGB. Whatever
money Begun had in his
pockets was also confis-
cated, according to reports

Begun was banished to
Siberia in the late 1970s for
his Hebrew-language ac-
tivity. He now lives in the
town of Strunino, 60 miles
from his former home in
Moscow.
In another department in
Moscow, police refused to
allow a group of Jewish
chess players to join
hunger-striking refusenik
and international
grandmaster Boris Gulka in
a "blitz tournament" to pub-
licize his plight. The group
was detained and ques-
tioned and later released.
Gulka and his wife Anna,
both former national Soviet
chess champions, began
their fast for exit visas Oct.
20.
In New York, Charlotte
Jacobson, chairman of the
Soviet Jewry Research

Bureau of the National Con-
ference on Soviet Jewry, re-
ported that "Jewish emigra-
tion has fallen to a frighten-
ing low as only 168 Jews ar-
rived in Vienna in October
— the lowest level recorded
since emigration began."
