NEW YORK.(JTA) - The running battle between a Leningrad non-Jewish Russian academic who renounced his degree to protest official anti-Semitism and the authorities has escalated with a barrage of articles, a joint letter and a telephoned KGB threat, according to the Student Struggle for Soviet Jewry. Dr. Ivan Martinov had announced recently he was giving up his candidate of pedagogical sciences degree (equal to a PhD) because a candidate status was still held by Lev Korneyev of Moscow, a notorious and prolific anti-Semitic writer, and Jewish exit applicants were harassed, Soon thereafter, he and refuseriik Yakov Gorodetsky, who helped him collate data on anti-Semitism, were; told by the authorities to apply to emigrate. The pair told friends they smelled a trap.

Kiviat, 91, who will soon be honored by the New York Runners Club, will be one of many torch bearers who will carry the traditional torch from New York City to Los Angeles prior to the start of the 1984 Olympic Games in July.

According to the SSSJ, the KGB phoned Martinov and told him that the Smina article was the authorities' answer to him and Gorodetsky.

Not only were they refused permission to exit but were warned that they could be im- cprisphedf the SSSJ reported. al associate director and head of the agency's International Affairs Division, \ added in a statement that the Syrian government which has long been derelict in according the Jewish community full civil rights "now bears a special obligation." Lillian Abadi, 25, a pregnant mother, her six-year- old son and her three-and-a- half year old daughter were shot and hacked to death in their home in the Aleppo Jewish quarter.
