Transcript copy of the Newsweek version of the cartoon from Kro- kodil. Here is a shining example of the uses- to which America's widely heralded freedom of the press is put! The Krokodil cartoon was by no means enough for the New York Times, Newsweek, the New York Post and the World-Telegram. The big lie needed more substance and this they added by a tremendous howl about Jewish names appearing in parentheses. According to Harry Schwartz, in the New York Times, "this is unprecedented" and happens to no one else in the Soviet press. Yet, we have been able to reproduce here part of the April 10th issue of Pravda and have underlined instances where Stalin Prize winners are identified by their pseudonyms and their real names are printed in parentheses. Thus you will find among the fiction writers: Boris Niko- laevich Polyevoi (Kampov), Elizaria Yerevich Maltsev (Pupko), Anna Ottovna Saksa (Abzalon) ; among the poets: Mikola (Nikolai Platonovich) Bazhan, Rahim Mamed (Mamed Rahim Abas Olga Gusenov), Yakub Kolas (Konstantin Mikhailovich Mitskevich) ; among the dramatists: Sandro (Alexander Ilyich) Shanshiashvili; and documentary film worker Roman Gregorovich Kats- man (Grigoryev). Obviously most of these names are not Jewish. Yet, both their real names and pseudonyms are being given, complete with parentheses. A more telling argument is an analysis of the April 9th and 10th Pravda, in which the Stalin prize winners are listed. People thoroughly familiar with Russian have gone over the lists carefully for us and have found over 120 obviously Jewish names. Here are only a few of the names that appear in the April 9th list: Lev Benyaminovich Marmorshtein, chief engineer of the factory "Serp and Hammer," Ephraim Feitelevich Schwartzberg, aeroplane engineer, Binyomin Beealelevich Gurevich, engineer of the factory "Electro-Apparat," 13
