[ Igor Tufeld, 23, a native of Mos- who immigrated to Israel in told approximately 50 people at a ilillel Club meeting Wednesday night that anti-Semitism is increas ing in the Soviet Union. ■Tufeld, now studying intemation- llrelations at the Hebrew University injerusalem, has been seeking per- Jmission from Soviet authorities for three years to allow his parents to join him in Israel. Since applying to emigrate in 1977, Tufeld’s parents have been re fused exit visas repeatedly (the last time two weeks ago) on grounds of “secrecy." His father once taught at an institute classified as “secret”, but left the job in 1973 in anticipation of emigration. Fifteen Jews that worked with his father have since left the Soviet Un ion, said Tufeld. “There is no logic in Soviet emig ration policy,” he said. Tufeld’s parents have been dismis sed from their jobs. “Application for an exit visa auto matically leads to unemployment,” said Tufeld. He said his father has been bed ridden for over a year and has been refused proper medical care because of his wish to emigrate. After telling of his parents’ ordeal, Tufeld gave other examples of friends in similar situations.

The suit, originally filed by Walter R. Davis, a founder and former pres ident of the company, charges that ‘‘’ermian took oil from 100,000 pro- jucers and resold it without paying for it or reporting it. f ——'due No date has been set for trial of the suit, which will be in Midland. But Permian had appealed a lower court’s decision that Davis could sue on behalf of all the producers who sold to Permian and not just himself. Permian is now a subsidiary of Occidental Petroleum Co.

However, if they apply to emigrate they often end up drafted into the army for two years. After army service it is at least five years before an exit visa can be obtained because all military person nel are classified “secret” regardless of rank, Tufeld said. “I don’t see any possibility of change there (the Soviet Union) for the Jewish people,” said Tufeld. He said people could help by writing letters.
