Scientists Protest Treatment 01 Colleague NEW YORK (JTA)—Physicists from around the world who attended a major international scientific conference in Crete in July protested to soviet authorities against the refusal to allow Prof. Armen Khachaturyan and his wife, Svetlana, to attend the conference and the continued denial to them of exit visas to emigrate, the World Jewish Congress reported. The professor and his wife, leading experts in the theory of phase transformation, first applied to emigrate to Israel in July, 1981 WASHINGTON (WNS) After three days of talks with Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Arens and Foreign Minister Yitzhak Shamir, the Reagan Administration appeared last week to have eased its opposition to the Israeli plans to redeploy its forces in Lebanon, calling the move "inevitable" and agreeing to Israel's contentions that this will be the first phase of its complete withdrawal from Lebanon. "One of the things that came forward very strongly was the attitude of Israel that this redeployment is the first phase toward total withdrawal in the context of the May 17 Israeli-Lebanese agreement," said Secretary of State George Shultz on July 28 after a 30-minute meeting between the two Israeli ministers and President Reagan. "I think that Jimmy Cram To Be Master Of Ceremonies At Aug. 15 Jewish Center Sports Spectacular ""' --'""» "oiohritv dinner with ics, demonstrations, e: Jimmy Crum, WCMH-TV sports director, will be master of ceremonies at the Butch Levy Sports Spectacular of the Leo Yassenoff Jewish Center on Monday, Aug. 15. This announcement was made by Sports'Spectacular chairman Ron Feerer. "We are pleased to have Crum join us for our second annual event," Feerer said. "He is well-known not only as the sports authority in Central Ohio but also for his dedication to many charitable groups in the area." Reservations for the daylong event to be held at Winding Hollow Country Club are coming in daily. Feerer reports that the golf and tennis activities as well as the celebrity dinner with Jim Valvano are attracting lots of interest. ics, demonstrations, exhibitions and tournament play. Bud Demling, golf trick shot artist, will also entertain. Jim Valvano, head basketball coach of the 1983 NCAA champion North Carolina State University, will be the featured speaker at dinner that evening. Ticket information is available by calling David Valinsky at the Center, 231-2731. any notion that this redeployment is part of an attempt to stay in Lebanon is totally wrong and certainly to the contrary. It is a step in the direction of total withdrawal arid we, at least hope it will make some impact in that regard on the Syrians and others in the area." Shultz's remarks were made in the driveway outside the White House West Wing while the Israeli ministers stood by his side. Shamir and Arens arrived here July 26 and conducted intensive meetings with Shultz and his aides, including Robert McFarlane, the new envoy to the Middle East, and Richard Fairbanks, another special Mideast envoy. Shamir departed to Israel the night of July 28 while Arens, who has also met separately with Defense Secretary Caspar Weinberger at the Pentagon, stayed a day longer for more meetings with Weinberger. Neither! Arens nor Shamir specifically mentioned the issue of deployment in their brief remarks after the White House meeting. But Shamir did comment on the deployment issue after an all-day session with Shultz at the State Department July 27. He said: "We've explained to our friends, the Secretary and his assistants all of our concepts on the redeployment as a first stage of the implementation of the agreement concluded between us and Lebanon.

Bill Introduced In Ohio Senate To Curb Paramilitary Training t „ T ir-oho,. en. inn for 'defense' thro wick. u^^^^ Soviets Export Anti-Zionist Propaganda -_!_»..„* v>h^aces which strike a chore NEW YORK (JTA)-The National Conference, on Soviet Jewry (NCSJ) reported that a new film made by the Soviet government for export abroad, particularly to the United States, links Zionism with Nazism and racism. According to the . NCSJ, the film, "Babi Yar: the Lessons of History," is disturbing because it represents an attempt to expand the ongoing Soviet propaganda campaign personified by the three-and-a-half month old "Anti-Zionist Committee." Narrated in near flawless English and of high technical quality,, it? was apparently sent out to a wide variety of media outlets, including CBS News, the Simon Wiesenthal Center and private individuals involved in tracking down Nazi war criminals, The danger of the film, the NCSJ stressed, is that it has been well targeted. Its anti- Zionist message is subtle compared to that in Soviet propaganda geared for internal consumption; only a few telltale lines, uttered in a steady, matter-of-fact tone, are inserted into the roughly hour-long film. They appear, moreover, within the context of repeated admonitions like "Never again," and '.'We must never forget" — phrases which strike a chord in any Jew, and doubtless many others in the West. Knesset Rejects Bill Calling For New Elections JERUSALEM (JTA)- The Knesset rejected last week a Tami Party private member's bill for elections for a new Knesset next October, instead of the scheduled 1984 date. The rejection stemmed from a tie vote on the proposal and under Knesset rules, such a vote means a proposal does not pass. Senator Lee I. Fisher (D- Cleveland) has introduced a bill in the Ohio Senate which would provide for criminal penalties for weapons instructors and participants in paramilitary training camps. Senators William F. Bowen (D-Cincinnati) and M. Morris Jackson (D-Cleve- land) are co-sponsors of the bill, S.B. 254, which is modeled after legislation drafted by the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith. The legislation is designed to confront the proliferation of paramilitary training centers operated by the Ku Klux Klan and other violence-inclined hate groups in the United States. Camps operated by the Klan and similar groups have been uncovered in Alabama, California, Connecticut, Illinois, North Carolina and Texas. "Though sponsors of these camps claim they are train ing for 'defense' through 'survival courses,' it is clear that these armed racists are engaged in paramilitary training for guerrilla Warfare against their purported enemies—blacks, Jews and other minority groups," said Michael Kotzin, director of. the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Office of the Anti- Defamation League. The statute would have no effect on legitimate sporting activities involving weapons or deadly techniques which do not pose a threat to society, such as rifle ranges and karate clubs. It would, however, make illegal the activities of groups, like the Klan, who are training for the purpose of engaging in a "civil disorder." "We are very pleased that this important legislation has been introduced in Ohio," Kotzin said. "We will (CONTINUED ON PAGE 6) also stressed the necessity of close cooperation of the redeployment between lis and the Lebanese government. and the United States government." There was no public comment oft whether there has been a timetable set for the start of the redeployment which would put the Israeli forces back to the Awali . River. But a senior Administration official briefing re^ porters on the content of the' talks between the U.S. officials and the Israeli ministers said that the Israelis would like to start the troop pullback "as soon as possible." However, it was j noted by the official that the ' U.S. would first want to make sure that before Israel leaves, the Lebanese army? can take over any area being evacuated. He said the first, step for this would be to stop the fighting in the Shouf Mountains in Eastern Lebanon. He also said the multi- :: "national forces "Would "Hot ~~ corisider going into that area until the fighting has ended. The U.S. position on the troop redeployment was made clear earlier in the week as Reagan fielded questions from reporters at a nationally televised news conference from the White House July 26. "I am hopeful that if this partial withdrawal takes place that it willbe recognized and admitted to be by the Israelis as one phase of their agreement to withdrawal," Reagan said. Reagan said that if the Israeli redeployment is part of a "phased withdrawal it will certainly give us a better chance for breaking the roadblock that has been established by Syria and persuading them to keep their original promise that when others withdraw, they would withdraw.'' But Reagan warned that there is a "fear" that if the Israeli move is "simply a withdrawal to another line and then a digging in and fortifying along that line, that this would be what it looks like Syria is doing and that is simply trying to partition Lebanon, reduce Lebanon and grab off some territory for themselves." However, Reagan quickly added that since Israel has signed an agreement with Lebanon for the withdrawal of all Israeli troops, "I don't think Israel has that in mind." When the two Israeli ministers arrived here, Shamir stressed that the redeployment is in the "context" of the May 17 Israel-Lebanese agreement.
