The arrests bring to 32 the number of Soviet Jews detained in recent months, apparently because they spoke out for the right to emigrate to Israel. The new arrests are significant in that they were made in Kishi- hey in the Ukraine; of the 28 arrested previously, only Mr. Galperin was from that town. The new arrests, word of which has just reached Western sources, were made shortly af- ter Aug. 15, when the houses of the four were searched and several volumes of the Jewish Encyclopedia were confiscated, although there is no ban against that publication. Of the 32 ar- rested so far, two have been sentenced. The four newly detained Jews are Arkady Voloshin, Day- charge was contained in a letter signed by 83 Moscow Jews ap- pealing to "brother Jews" to unite "to save their brothers and sisters from the destruction which threatens them." That letter, and another addressed to the delegates at the United Na- tions General Assembly was distributed to Western newsmen yesterday. Both letters complained of harrassment and arrests of some Jews in other cities in recent months and house searches and confiscations of books of Jewish nature. They also complained that Jews were not permitted to live a full cultural and religious life in Russia or to emigrate to their "spiritual homeland, Israel." The letter to the UN was signed by 77 Jews, most of whom also signed the first letter. The sig- natories channeled the letters through foreign newsmen be- cause, they claimed, they had no hope of delivery to the UN through the mails. NEW YORK, Sept. (JTA)- The Jewish National Fund will require $46.5 million for its de- velopment program in Israel during the next three years, Herman L. Weisman, JNF pres- ident told a session of the Zion- ist Organization of America holding its 73rd annual national convention this weekend. In outlining the program Mr. Weisman, a New York attorney who was elected unanimously by the 1000 ZOA delegates as president of the Zionist organi- zation, said that the details of the JNF program was recently announced by Shimon Benshe- mesh, Director General of the Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael, at the inaugural meeting of the JNF World Council in Jerusa- lem. The funds will be utilized for land reclamation and foresta- tion. Mr. Benshemesh called upon JNF bodies throughout the world for a substantial raise in income so that the requirements part of the country signed a document which established the Anti-Defamation League, "formed under the auspices of the Order of B'nai B'rith." These men, who were the first Executive Committee of the League, stated that, "The immediate object of the League is to stop, by appeals to reason and conscience, and if necessar- y, by appeals to Law, the defa- mation of the Jewish people." Its ultimate purpose is to secure justice and fair treat- ment for all citizens alike and to put an end forever to unjust and unfair discrimination and ridicule of any sect or body of citizens. This, then was the Jewish organization which saw, as far back as 1913, that the "Ameri- can dream" must be secured for all people alike. Today, with this goal still a high priority in the League's work, the ADL has become a vast human relations agency, with offices in 28 ke 7 cities of the United States. Each mocracy.

It was not immediately known whether they had signed peti- tions calling for emigration rights. They are believed to be in their 20s or early 30s, as is Mr. Galperin. In a similar report, Soviet Jews were disclosed to have complained openly that they were the only ethnic group in the Soviet Union "who are or- According to reports from Moscow, the number of Jews allowed to emigrate has dec- lined in recent months to a "handful." There is no free emigration for any Soviet citi- zens but applicants are treated on an individual basis and some have been allowed to leave if their departure was not consi- dered contrary to Soviet inter- ests.
