Shcharansky will be released to a
claim by a Washington attorney that
the entire incident has been orches-
trated by the Russian spy agency,
the KGB.
According to this lawyer, the
KGB had planted the rumors about
Shcharansky to kill whatever
chances the dissident may have had

Reports of Soviet Jewish pris-
oner Anatoly Shcharansky's immi-
nent release from the USSR has
triggered a flurry of cautious op-
) timism in the West.
Reaction has ranged from an Is-
rael Radio report that White House
sources had secretly informed Israeli
Prime Minister Shimon Peres that

for early freedom. He said that a
State Department officer who has
been working for six, months for
Shcharansky's release was dis-
traught at news reports that the
Russian would be released. Negotia-
tions for an. East-West prisoner swap
that would include Shcharansky had
been making-tentative progress, said
the attorney.. But premature news
reports would probably derail the ac-
tual exchange.
The 38-year-old Shcharansky
was sentenced in 1978 to 13 years in
prison and labor camp on charges of
having collected intelligence for the
United States. President Carter de-
nied the charges. The general view
in the West is that Shcharansky, a
mathematician and Computer scien-
tist, was jailed because of his activi-
ties on behalf of Jewish emigration.
The first dispatches about
Shcharansky's release appeared on
Monday in the' West German news-

Super Sunday
Gains $818,569

The winners: 5,200 Detroiters
who pledged $818,569 to the 1986
Allied Jewish Campaign on Super
Sunday.
The losers; It would be tough to
find any on a day that linked 300
volunteers to thousands of con-
tributors on behalf of their fellow
Jews around the world.
It was a record total on this fifth
annual Super Sunday: $268,000
more . than last, year's ,achieveraant.
When. volunteer 'tabulator Bernard
Kent ran 'up the final tally at 5 p.m.,
workers on the final shift applauded
for themselves, for the con-
tributors and for Detroit. But some
workers went right, on calling in'
hopes of getting that last pledge for
the day.
Kent was among the 85 Yonng
Adult Division members: on duty
throughout the day. They were not
the youngest workers, however. Seth
Jackier and his sister Ariana joined
their parents Larry and Shelly on :

the phones. Seth set a goal of $1,000
in pledges, and beat the goal by $81.
Theirs 'wasn't the only family af-
fair. For Daniel Alter, 9, and his sis-
ter Jessica, 6, it was their third an-

nual Super Sunday. For Justin Ash,
15 months, it was his first.
