How did you make
the last special gift you gave

Lou are probably now planning (or, we hope, very soon will be) those
extra special gifts that you enjoy giving during the holiday season, those
special gifts that tell your loved ones just how much you care.
Part of what can make such gifts extra special is their presentation.
It should say how_important you feel this gift is; that, "You are an

important person in my life."
Presentation of special, personalized gifts—artwork, needlework,
a photograph, or perhaps an object of memorabilia—is Framery One's special
genius. Our work is of the highest quality, in workmanship, materials,
and creativity, and because of this we are entrusted with the framing of

many very special gifts.
If you are planning to frame something special for this coming holiday
season, our staff at Framery One would be pleased to help you attain
that something extra. But, because of increased demand for our services
during this time of year, we are asking that your holiday framing requirements
be gotten to us no later than December 6th to insure their timely completion.
We hope you understand that we can only do so much.
As we care about how we present our work too, all framing done for
holiday gift giving will be appropriately gift wrapped—at no charge. We'd like

this to be our special gift to you.
With sincere holiday season regards,

Everyone at Framery One

New Soviet Visa
Code Criticized

New York (JTA) — The
Soviets' new written emigra-
tion emigration procedures
was criticized as both a
"smokescreen" and "glaring
omission" by Soviet Jewry
movement leaders, it was
reported last week.
The regulations, to take ef-
fect January 1, define accep-
table conditions for emigra-
tion and temporary travel,
differing significantly from
the current unwritten rules in
two respects: having no pro-
vision for repatriation; and a
new rule for quick application

national Covent on Civil
and Political Rights is wiped
out in a stroke." This docu-
ment, ratified by the USSR in
1973, states that "everyon
shall be free to leave the coun-
try, including his c-7:-"..."
The SSSJ said the
Soviet ratification of the 1966
UN covenant was the "legal
linchpin," according to inter-
national law, for the repatria-
tion movement in the Soviet
Union. The SSSJ statement
went on to say that under the
decree "only the closest of kin
could invite family members"
,,„ vait251
a vicious circle: Because of
this restriction, one cannot
leave to be the invitor for
other family members.
Pamela Cohen, president of
the Union of Councils for
Soviet Jews, offered a sting-
ing critique. She said Soviet
Jewish activists told her that
the laws "further restrict all
movement of people. It limits
them, first, in that only
families with immediate fami-
ly members abroad can
presume to apply... which
means that the vast body of
Soviet Jews who have been
targeted by the government
under these anti-Semitic
policies are locked in..."
Cohen spoke about the
"security cases," Jews who
were told they could not leave
on the basis of "regime con-
siderations," but who had
been told eventually when
they could leave. "The new
codes, said Cohen, "do not
give any clear cut answer to
Soviet Jews... There's a total
absence of process in these


ailing relatives.
The rules, which the Soviet
claim will ease the process,
were published in a list of
Soviet government regula-
tions. It is the first time the
Soviets officially have record-
ed their rules for application
to emigrate and in turn,
grounds for rejection.
The decree, as the rules are
called, states that visa ap-
plications will be considered
based on "reunification with
members of one's family,
meetings with close relatives,
marriage, visiting seriously
ailing relatives, resolving in-
heritance issues and other
valid reasons." In other
words, one may emigrate on-
ly if invited by direct family
members (spouse, parent,
child or sibling) living abroad.
Decisions by emigration
authorities are to be made
within a month unless "fur-
ther consideration" is
necessary, when the waiting
period could extend to six
The decree states that
denials will be explained, but
no provisions were listed en-
titling an appeal of a rejec-
tion. Reapplication is allowed
six months after denial. The
state may deny emigration
for nine reasons: an appli-
cant's familiarity with state
secrets; if the basic rights and
legal interests of other Soviet
citizens are affected; unfulfill-
ed obligation to the state or
any organizations; criminal
charges against the applicant;
if the person abroad inviting
the applicant had violated
Soviet rules upon emigration;
if during a prior trip abroad
the applicant "committed ac-
tions violating the interests
of the state" or customs or
currency regulations; "in the
interest of insuring the pro-
tection of social order, health
or the morals of the popula-
tion; or through bilateral
agreements with other
The Student Struggle for
Soviet Jewry (SSSJ) denounc-
ed the decree, describing it as
"the most cruel form of fraud,
limiting emigration...only to
invitation from immediate
family members living
abroad. The 1966 UN Inter-


Second Israeli
Liver Transplant
Patient Dies

ml Aviv (JTA) — Eliahu
Schreir, Israel's second liver
transplant patient, died last
week at Ramban Hospital in
Haifa, 18 days after surgery.
His death followed by five
days that of the first trans-
plant patient, Mira Schich-
manter. Despite the setback,
Rambam Hospital director
Albert Sattinger said the
liver transplant operations
would continue, and the
Heath Ministry confirmed
Doctors at the hospital said
that Schreier, like Schich-
manter, succumbed to com-
plications arising from the
advanced stages of their liver
ailments, not the surgery.
Both underwent second
operations to correct internal
hemhorraging. According to
Sattinger, neither patient
would have lived more than a
few days if they hadn't re-
ceived transplants.
