The Greater New York. Conference on Soviet Jewry reported that Alexander Landsman, a 16-year-old Jewish boy, is suffering in a Moscow hospital bed with acute leukemia. Physicians throughout the United States and the world have appealed to Soviet authorities on humanitarian grounds asking that Alexander be allowed to be treated for this deadly disease in the West. The requests have been repeatedly denied, the Conference said.
