Download PDF for this date

Anatoly Dobrynin, Soviet Ambassador to the United States, told the Jewish Telegraphic Agency that he did not think Voice of America broadcasts in Yiddish to Jews in Russia would neither help nor harm Soviet-American relations. In a conversation with the JTA on the admission of newsmen to trials of Soviet Jews, the Ambassador said that news correspondents already in the Soviet Union can attend trials the judge declares to be open, but that admitting additional newsmen widens publicity the trials do not merit.
