ABSTRACT
Deals with the tradition of concern of the American Physical Society (APS) for the hardships endured by the Russian physicists who have been penalized for their desire to leave the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and who have been ostracized by the government. Response to a Forum resolution that the APS supports the right of scientists; Letter sent by APS president Chien-Shiung Wu to Gerald Ford, president of the U.S., on October 31, 1976, about the federal support for basic science.
