Last RelaUves to Join Russians Originally, 12 Soviet Jews were expected to be resettled in the Orlando area this year, but with the expected arrival within the next three weeks of another seven Russians, that number will nearly double to 23. Task Force chairman Abby Sale called it "simple humanity" to keep immediate immigrant families together, as he announced that plans are going forward to receive Viktor Goyhkman's mother, his sister and brother-in-law, their two children and the brother-in-law's parents. "We are following a moral imperative here," he commented. "Immediate families should be resettled together. They're already being totally uprooted and shifted some 10,000 miles to another culture." According to project coor- dinator, Marsha Fineman, whose Task Force functions under the supervision of Jewish Family Service, Orlando has made substan- tial progress in helping the 16 Russians currently here to obtain job and home security. "We have to give a lot of credit to the Russian families," she said. "They are all very hard workers, very dedicated to learning English and joining the community as self. sufficient members. "It's also been a very rewarding experience for the many people who have worked with them and shared their lives." JFS director, AI Gamson, said that there has been an increase in federal funding for the Russians already settled here, as well as for those to come, in addition to funds expected from HIAS and from local fundraising efforts. "We have received substantial help from gifts-in-kind," Gamson said. "Every such gift actually raises the amount available to the project." To date, major help with furniture and equipment has been received from Classic Dinettes, House of Dinettes, Carolina Furniture Surplus, Sealy Mattress Co. of Florida, and Ars Army Store. Fineman has issued a plea for new donations of household goods and linens. "We will continue to need donations from members of the community, but we hope people will understand that our biggest problem now is that there are no secure storage facilities available. We hope that people will call us and then stand by so we can take donations directly to the people who need them," she said. On the job front, Fineman reported that at least four of the immigrants have begun work. Symon Dansker has been employed by a tool and die company; Leonid Pyatetsky works in the tailoring department of Burdines at Fashion Square; his wife, Bella, works part-time as a bookkeeper; and Esther (Sonya) Tarnarider, who is also a tailor, has begun working at home, doing altera- tions and tailoring. Lebya TarnarideF and his son, Yefim, are currently seeking work as shoemakers and leatherworkers. Fineman stressed the vitality of community res- ponse to the immigrants' social and job needs. "We are getting a lot of help from the community, though for everyone's sake, we have to insist that all arrangements, particularly for appointments, be handled through the JFS office, to avoid duplication and confusion.

With the general in charge, the word "independent" no longer appears on the masthead. In explaining why his father was jailed, the publisher's son Hector stated, "He was the only spokesman who denounced the repressive methods of the government and regularly published the cases of those who disappeared." The desaparacidos or disappeared persons is a term used to designate those opponents of the junta who have vanished without any official accounting for their fate. The Anti-Defamation Leage estimates that 15 to 20,000 persons have disappeared since the junta overthrew President Isabel Peron and took power in March ]976. The league said about 150 journalists have been imprisoned by the Argentine regime. In October 1977 the govern- ment tried Timerman in a military court where he was charged with aiding left wing guerrillas through his connection with Argentine banker David Gravier. The majority stockholder of La Opinion, Gravier was accused of investing abroad money the guerrillas gained from bank robberies and kidnapping ransoms. The whereabouts of Gravier are unknown. The military court cleared Timerman, but the junta kept him in jail under its executive powers. In April 1978, Timer- man was put under house arrest. Tired but 'Proud to Be Jew' He Says in Israel BEN GURION AIRPORT (JTA) -- Jacobo Timerman, former editor and publisher of the Buenos Aires daily, La Opinion, arrived here last week 48 hours after the Argentine regime had released him after 29 months of prison and house arrest. He was immediately made a citizen and given an Israeli identity card and a new immigrant's card. "1 am proud to be a Jew," Timerman said. He said the great change in Jewish life now is that "Israel is the homeland" of the Jews. Looking tired but happy, Timerman refused to discuss the situation of Jews in Argentina or the Argentine situation in general. Timerman said that his immediate plan is to rest after his long ordeal in Argentina. JACOBO TIMERMAN (r) arriving In Rome
