Soviet Jewry activists Dorothy Mahlin and Bill Graham discussed
4trategy before their trial.

reasons he or she was present.
These reasons related to the
Soviet policy and violating the
human rights of Soviet Hebrew
teachers, Jewish activists and
Jews who had applied for per-
mission to emigrate. The state-
ments identified individual
cases of ongoing mistreatment."
In their personal statements
to the court, Mahlin and
Graham cited the Holocaust as
one reason they had to protest.
"The unchecked tyranny in
Germany, the ghosts of six mil-
lion Jews and six million Chris-
tians, is a constant spur to me,"
said Mahlin. She told The Jews
News that "it was the farthest
thing from my mind to get ar-
rested. But all of a sudden, I felt
it would be wrong if I didn't. If I
really believe (in this cause),
then how could I say no (to the
October demonstration)?"
Trials of other demonstrators
are scheduled for Jan. 30, Feb.
5, and Feb. 15, and other de-
fense attorneys have been cal-
ling Waxman for his brief in the
case.
Graham said Waxman's writ-
ten briefs included State De-
partment documentation , of
Soviet persecution of its Jewish
citizens.
One of those convicted with
the Detroiters was recent Soviet
emigre Sergey Broude. His ar-
rest in October occurred four
days after he became a
naturalized American citizen.
Broude, a physicist, was a He-
brew teacher in the Soviet
Union and principal of a secret
Hebrew school. He has lived in
Boston since he was allowed to
emigrate five years ago.
Rusty Frank, a Soviet Jewry
activist in San Francisco, con-
sidered going to prison Thurs-
day rather than accept the sen-
tence. But in consultations with
Waxman, Judge Hannon urged
her not to force him to hand
down a jail sentence, which he
said he would postpone in any
case.
In deciding to postpone the
sentence, Hannon said that al-

though he could not predict the
outcome of the group's appeal,
the statement submitted by
Waxman was "indeed a remark-
able record," suggesting that the
case might have sufficient merit
to win on appeal.

Candle Killed
Eight Soldiers

Tel Aviv —A fire which
caused the deaths of eight
soldiers and serious injuries to
another in an artillery corps
camp on the West Bank last
month was caused by a burning
candle left unattended by one of
the men sleeping in the bar-
rack.(JTA) — An investigation
found that one of the 45 soldiers
housed in the but had placed a
lighted candle on a shelf and
had then left the building at
about one o'clock in the morn-
ing, when all the others were
asleep.
The candle apparently set fire
to a towel, and the flames
spread quickly throughout the
structure.
The soldier who used the can-
dle — against all regulatiozp;
apparently because there was
power failure at the time is
to be charged with negligence
and disobeying orders in a court
martial to be held next week.

Zealots
Bus Shelters

Jerusalem (JTA) — Two bus
shelters were burned in
Jerusalem over the weekend,
and a 27-year-old suspect was
detained. A total of 28 bus shel-
ters in the city have been
burned in recent weeks and
religious zealots are suspected.
They apparently are offended
by some of the advertising post-
ers on the shelters. The city
says it will not rebuild any more
shelters destroyed by arson.
