Professor M.S. Vovsy, one of the 15 physicians who were arrested in Moscow early this year on charges of plotting the deaths of high Communist officials, was appointed yesterday to a new Soviet Health Council, advisory body to the Ministry of Health, it was reported here today from Moscow. Prof. Vovsky and the other doctors were released after the death of Joseph Stalin when the accusations against them were declared false.

The London Daily Telegraph said today that the reports that Moscow may soon take steps to resume diplomatic relations with Israel are receiving increased currency. “Some say that the Russians have already approached the Israel Government through an East European capital,” the London paper stated.
