JERUSALEM — An in-
ternational lawyers group,
World Habeas Corpus, has
announced that it plans to
sue the Soviet Union for $14
billion on behalf of Raoul
Wallenberg and his family.
Wallenberg saved
thousands of Hungarian.
Jews from the Nazis and is
believed to be still alive in a
Soviet prison.
The lawyers announced
in the Jerusalem Post that
they are seeking informa-
tion about Wallenberg from
any Israeli who may have
seen him in the Soviet
Union since World War II.

THANK YOU

To all my friends & relatives who showed
their kind concern during my stay in the
hospital.

PARIS (JTA) — Yuri An-
dropov, first secretary of the
Soviet Communist Party,
claims that imprisoned
Jewish activist Anatoly
Shcharansky has ended his
hunger strike and is in "a
satisfactory condition."
The Soviet leader also
hinted that Shcharansky's
13-year sentence might be
reduced were it not for the
international pressure
campaign on his behalf.
Those statements by An-
dropov were published
Monday in the French
Communist Party organ
L'Humanite, in a letter to
Georges Marchais, secre-
tary general of the party.
The letter was An-
dropov's reply to a re-
quest by Marchais for in-
formation
about
Shcharansky.

Communist
leader had been con-
