Harold Friedman, president of the United Hias Service, said here Friday that the Attorney General’s parole authority will allow for an increased flow of Soviet Jews to the US. Hias, the world-wide Jewish migration service which helped arrange the emigration from the Soviet Union of Simeon Mordkovich Feldman, his wife, Emma, and their two children, Dina and Igor, under the Attorney General’s parole authority, said that in 1971 some 300 Russian Jews came to the US, but he hoped to see 1,000 or more arrive in 1972. The Feldman family arrived in New York last week and was welcomed Friday by Attorney General John Mitchell who expressed delight “to have this opportunity to welcome the Feldman family to our shores to be united with other members of their family.”
