Vladimir Slepak, the Soviet Jewish activist, was arrested today while walking with his son, Aleksander, on the way to Communist Party headquarters in Moscow to join a group of 25 Jews who were seeking to present a protest letter on the exit tax to party officials, the Student Struggle for Soviet Jewry reported. Four plainclothesmen took Slepak to jail and released him three hours later.
