The request for another publication in Yiddish language in the Soviet Union, in addition to the government-sponsored monthly Sovietish Heimland, was voiced in Moscow at a four-day conference of Jewish writers and literary critics, according to information reached here today from the Soviet capital. Speakers pointed out that there was need for such a publication to appear in Kiev in Vilna, provincial Jewish centers.

An exhibition of 76 paintings by 12 Israeli artists was opened at the Pushkin Museum in Moscow, a dispatch from the Soviet capital reported here today. The exhibition was organized within the framework of the recent Israeli-USSR agreement for cultural exchanges between the two countries.
