--j une 9. i 974 Sundav Gazette-Mail Charlesfon, WE* viroirua H* *x *· * £ ;»£·: Riot-Torn Oklahoma Prison Gets Warden McALESTER, Okla. -MA new acting warden was in charge of Oklahoma's riot- wracked and troubled state prison Saturday and said he would act quickly to ease "all the friction that has been built up over the past 12 months." Harold "Bud" Wilson, appointed acting warden by Gov. David Hall late on Friday, had extra Highway Patrol troopers in the prison and some 200 National Guard troops on standby in McAlester to assure control. Wilson, 51, and a veteran of 18 years in corrections, had been superintendent at the Lexington regional Treatment Center for 20 months. He was associate warden at McAlester for 10 years. "McAlester offers a real challenge, but in view of what has been going on since last July's riot, it will not be an easy task," Wilson said. He said he planned some changes at the prison, but declined to detail them. Lt. Col. Paul Staples, com- mander of the Military Police battalion at McAlester, said his troops would be available to relieve prison guards on short notice. Hall announced he was doubling the force of Highway Patrol troopers that has been on duty at the prison since the riot. He declined to disclose the size of that force, but one patrol spokesman said 25 troopers now would be on duty at the prison. Corrections Board Chairman Irvine Ungerman met Friday night with about 150 of the unhappy prison guards, Th* guards declared Friday morning they feared for their safety and refused to do more than deliver meals and medical aid to the inmates. Ungerman said the department hoped to establish rules within 48 hours that would implement safety measures fqr the guards and take other steps to improve their working conditions. He told the guards they had the right to present grievances to the board at any time. Come in... Register to win a $500 paid-up Frankenberger's Charge Account for Dad...

(Staff Photo by Ferrell Friend) New Soviet Strategy Seen in Exits Drop By Murray Seeger (C) The Los Angeles Times MOSCOW -- The volume of Jewish emigration from the Soviet Union fell even more sharply during May from the depressed levels of the first four months of 1974, according to diplomatic sources. Foreign experts and Soviet Jews believe the continuing decline in emigration from the record level set in 1973 is the direct result of a Soviet government strategy initiated last December to discourage individuals from applying to leave. This more subtle style of inhibiting emigration has enabled the Soviets to reduce the outflow of Jews without raising the proportion of applicants who are refused permission to leave. Along with this new policy, the government has stepped up its pressure on the group of activist; intellectual Jews, some of whom have been t r y i n g to leave for three years, and increased its propaganda attacks on Israel and what the official press ca*lls the "Zionist lobby" in the United States. WESTERN DIPLOMATS are now watching to see if the new Soviet steps on the Jewish problem, which has stalemated moves towards improving trade relations between the United States and Soviet Union, are leading to a significant gesture on the issue at the time of the new summit conference in Moscow later this month. Instead of releasing large numbers of Jews to meet the international criticism of its emigration policies -- the type of response the Kremlin has made previously -- some diplomats feel the Soviets may make a "qualitative" gesture and permit some prominent applicants to leave. The reported decision to permit the famous Leningrad ballet dancers, Valery Panov and his Russian wife, to emigrate to Israel would tend to confirm the strategy change. American diplomats, apparently acting on instructions from Washington, refused to speculate on the volatile issue. They seemed to be re- 'flecting President Nixon's recent admonition to avoid in- terfering in the internal policies of the Moscow regime. "We believe the Soviets made a policy change on the emigration issue last December," a Western diplomat said. "The number of Jews leaving the country fell sharply in January." In 1973, nearly 35,000 Jews left the country, making a total of 80,000 who were allowed out in three years of steadily increasing emigration. In January, the number of exit visas issued by the Soviets fell almost 20 per cent. That figure fell sharply in May, down an estimated 30 per cent in addition to the previous decreases. And so far in J u n e there has been no change. The number of bureaucratic steps and forms of intimidation against visa applicants was increased in March. Starting then, anyone leaving the country had to go first to a regional police station to have his papers inspected. Additional information was required on the exit applications and they were required to be typewritten, a difficult procedure in the Soviet Union. « i H i?
