Banking Committee.

MOSCOW (M-- A panel of
Soviet judges began deliber-
ations yesterday on the fate
of nine Leningrad Jews ac-
cused of plotting to hijack
an airliner and slandering
the Soviet Union.
The Soviet agency Tass said
the Leningrad city court finish-
ed hearing the defendants' final
statements yesterday morning.
It said all of them had con-
fessed and "repented." The trial
began May 11.
Tass has never given the pre-
cise charges against the Jews.
Butunofficial sources havere-
ported that two are charged
with treason and the other sev-

activity and slandering the
Under the articles of the Rus-
sian criminal code, all of the

Two of the 11 persons charged
in the earlier trial were sent-
enced to die before a firing
squad. But the severity of the
sentences aroused an interna-

ences were commuted on appeal
to 15 year labor camp terms.
The nine Jews in the second
trial were rounded up at their
homes and offices at about the
same time the others were seiz-
ed at the airport.
Tass has described the nine,
all engineers or doctors, as in-
grates who repaid their state
funded education with dreams
or attempts to emigrate to Israel.

T~thshe Creative Switch
Why has ihe Mamiya/Sekor DTL become the favorite
35mm StR camera of campus photographers? Because
you're more interested in creative possibilities than
record making. The Creative Switch allows you to
choose between two separate exposure meter
f systems, and gsarantees' perfect exposures
every time.Why two? Because front lighted
subjects are measured easiest with an
averaged"meter system.With back and side
lighting you need a "spot"meter system
to read ihe msi important part ot the picture.
Most fi ne 35mm SLR c mers haveone atr
these systems; the Mamiya/Sekor
DTL has combined both with the
Creative Switch. Who cares
about exposure if(you're only
interested in taking pictures
of the baby or Aunt A gatha?
-But the most interesting
pictures usually have tricky
lighting and you want to
capture on film what you
