U.S. Jewish Writers Oppose Admission of Soviet Authors to P. E. N.

The Yiddish P. E. N. Club in the United States today opposed a proposal inviting Soviet writers to join the International P. E. N. Association. In a communication addressed to the International P. E. N. Congress which opened in Rio De Janeiro, the Yiddish P. E. N. Club said it would vote “no” on the proposal as long as Soviet writers “abstain from proclaiming their sharp dissent” from current Soviet policies against Jewish culture.
