TRIBUNE 21 By DAVID LANCASHIRE Associated Prtss Writer TEL AVIV (AP) -- The big jets from Vienna come in be- 'ore dawn, ferrying their cargoes, of hopes, fears and dreams. The passengers are Soviet immigrants, Russians by .he hundreds. This is the.Jew- ish Exodus, 1972. Israel welcomed 13,000 Soviet, Jews last year. This year the forecast is 30,000. 'We were well off ihere," said Samual Huzonik, a 43-year-old welder from Riga. "But we want to bring our children up as Jews and we can'f do that intheU.S.S.R." Get the sharpest pleats in town.... and Many Ruzonik, with his wife Kvo daughters, arrived in a planeload of 140, old 'men, young Georgians in . woolly peaked caps, te«n-agers with guitars, · harassed mothers and crying babies. Most, got their exit visas in three months, but one family waited eight years. "I won a gold medal in a secondary school in Odessa, but I could not get into the university chemistry faculty because I am back Jewish," said J0na Schneiderman, a 17-xear-old brunette, trim in her plastic raincoat. "I want to be a doctor in Israel--a p t good doctor." Sit Quietly Exhausted and nervous, awed at; being on Jewish soil, the newcomers sit quietly at .the airport while Israeli girls hand out candy,-. coffee, and grape- g fruit juice and help with the babies. A Jerusalem rabbi distributes prayer'shawls-and Bib : les.. A volunteer worker issues free subscriptions to a Russian- language newspaper.. Within hours, police',' immigration, customs and Jewish Agency officials manage to issue papers, find each family new apartment to live in, com- plete'with furniture, lend pocket money to each newcomer, and send them off by car to their new homes.': The immigrants are better dressed, more prosperous-look- 'ing than one might' expect. a The We're Celebrating Our ,3rd Year in Greefey STOP In and Check Our BIG Sale Table . . .

Passports Cost Mori Getting out of the Soviet Union costs about $150 per person xr the plane or train to Vienna, plus about $1,000 for a red cardboard passport and a automatic renunciation of Soviet citizenship. An ordinary Russian passport, cos Is $45. "W* applied to leave for 414 years before we got out," said one recent arrival, Reuben Gal' iffL bearded computer pro- jrammer from Georgia who worked on earth-tremor catenations In.'.the Soviet Union. "Now'I a m - t a k i n g my doctorate at the Wcizmann Institute." Galperin and his wife live in Ihe ' new town of Kiryat Malachi, in a two-bedroom apartment, rent $13 a month, overlooking fields of vegetables. The furniture was supplied free; the refrigerator was a gift :rom American relatives. The Galperins and about 200 other Kiryat Malachi Soviet families are'rultrareligious "Ha- sad" Jews whose spiritual leader is the Lubavitcher rabbi, Zalman Schnerson, who lives in Brooklyn, N.Y. Like most ol :lie Habad men here, Galperin has already managed to visit New York to talk to the rabbi. "New.York was beautiful but we are happy here," said Mrs. Galperin. Asked if she missed the Soviet Union, she hissed through her teeth: Downstairs lives the Lev! Pressman family, two entire apartments for themselves and [heir s even - child ren, rent · paid by the I fa bad community and other agencies. A factory worker in Tashkent, Pressman has not worked since'he came to Israel six months ago--rare for an immigrant--but- he has made a : pilgrimage to the rabbi in New York.

Ben Zion Mirilashivli, 34, a truck driver ^.in Georgia. He came to .Israel'five,months ago with his wife and three ciiil dren. Now he bends metal rods for reinforced concrete at a factory in Ashkelon. "I.earn 24 pounds ($6) a day it's marvelous here, thank the Lord," said the burly Georgian in already fluent Hebrew. " would never go back, and 1 don't need to--all the Jews in Georgia 'are coming here." "We have 31 Russians in the factory,"... said staff director Moshe Lustig, a Red army vet eran himself.. "Five are eiigi iccrs and the rest are unskilled jeorgians. Georgians have al vays struggled against aulhor- .y to keep their Jewish'identi- !, and now 1 have to teach icm skills, citizenship and re- pec t for- work. 40 Quit -"Since we began (aking Geor- ians about four months ago, bout :40. have quit--they were prmer merchants who didn't ike factory work--or been fired or indiscipline."
