Tbe accusation was made by three former Soviet citizens who testified at a dosed session of the European Conference on Soviet Jewry. Tlieir identity was not disclosed to protect families left bdiind ih Moscow and Leningrad, but the two men and a vroman were described as past members of KomsOmols, the Soviet Community Party- youth Obscur^ Mideast Mission JERUSALEM, (JT4)i - Joseph Sisco, the American State Department' official, brought his .slightly mysterious Mideast mission to Israel this week, con¬ ferring with key Israeli officials and remaining diplomatically discreet on o the reasons for and results of his regional swing. Hie Assistant Secretary of State originally had been announced ^as going to Teheran solely for a briefing . ^ session with heads of y.S. missions in the area. At that time State Department spokesmen said em- idiatically that Sisco would not be making the rounds of Mideast capitals. Then he began to do just that. 'One of his stopovers was a - four-day stay in E^ypt. He met at length with President Nasser and top Egyptian aides, amid indications that the U.S. Ciovemtnent was. . pleasied that, such lengthy,!,, ,,fitmmbexi,mmm,^qm^^^^ai^mimm ' hdd with a couhfa^ which broke off diplomatic ties with the Uniteid States after the Six-Day war.

NEW YORK. (JiTA) - The New York Tdqihone Co.' ~ has.dropped a long-standing policy of refiising to hire f^mjiwit"- programmers wbo are Sabbath observers, fdhnring several mOnths of negotiations witfa the National Jewish Oimmission on Law and Public ^- foirs, Julius Barman, CiOLPA presitot, ri^^iM| ^° The test case involved a Brooklyn Jew who^lqipiied for examination for sucfa a post and was rejected^ Mr. Berman said tfae applicant was told specifically that Ifae firm did not hire Sabbath observers for such jobs because their religious requirements could create complications in the company's computer operations. He said OOLPA dedded to sedc an agr^eement on hiring such apfdicants, rather than by filling a formal com¬ plaint. organization, The three' described in detail several cases in which Russian Jews were sent to jail and their families subject to ' severe harassment because they applied for exit permits to go to IsrOd. They also (ialled the arrest of Jews who had sent appeals abroad~'as a dangerous new trend. Tlie Conference adopted a resolution urging Moscow to grant Jews "their con- stitutipnal rights" and the right "to emigrate tol Israd for those who'wish to." Other points noted by the various eiqperts were thaf. while the worst anti- semitism ended with Statin's death the current campkign had become increasingly shrill in paist months, sur¬ passing the "hysteria" diluted in the past against China, ¦ Czechoslovakian liberals and Marshal Tito of Yugodavia. Moscow's policy was designed to "appease" its Arab alHes, it was noted. mm The United States^ttpafurged to hold Mosco^i'ilifo' the promise of Preniiei*-Alexei N. Kosygin that Russia would let Jews emigrate. In Russia, the (>ommunist Party newspaper Pravda published a iett€r signed by 70 "veteran Bolsheviks of Jewish nationality" at¬ tacking Israel and its "Zionist-Fascist" policies that have resulted in atrocities against the Arabs. The main portion of the letter, howjever, extolled Russia's treatment of its Jews and asserted that Jews had all the rights other nationalities had. . And in London sources released a fetter sent to the Russian newspaper Izvestia in which the writers an¬ swered an article which questioned the historical status of Isi'ad as a Jewish homdand. The letter writers asked if there were any other historical motherland for the Jews and. noted the article auUiors were periiaps im¬ plying that "the Jews, unlike other people, have no historicd motherland, or at least should not have one." 6 Drive 1970 (Tednesday May 13 is "Election Day" for Uie Jewish -Community. Unlike ttie dection^day of May 5, where failure of registered voters to appear might affect only the candidates bivdved, failure of qualified blood donors to appear at the Jewish Center on Wed. May 13, 12:30-6:30 might affect ttie entire com'munity. In some instances, it might mean the difference between life and deaUi. In others, a light vote-a poor response to B-Daymight spell defeat to the protection afforded all members of the community, in their ability to receive as much blood as they need, when Uiey need it; wittiout ttie necessity for prior dqiosit of blood, or payment for it. CiordanZiedman, President of the Oouncil, bias stressed once again the importance of "B" Day to the entire community. When you are called to give, make an appointinoit. If you can not make an ai^intment- come when you can. Womdi afe urged to come durihg the afternoon hours, (witti babysitter at the center), when the men ai;e at work, and to avoid the lunch period or the late afternoon time as much as possible. Ja^k Masser, chairman of "B" Dayj reports that cojiunittees from all major organizations are. already at work contacting donors. , (iist Your Vote for a protected Jewish Community!
