Mail for Soviets' US Embassy may carry pointed reminder

The Senate Appropriations Committee approved designating the plot of land that the Soviet Embassy sits on here as Andrei Sakharov Plaza, in honor of the Soviet dissident. The bill would change the Soviet Embassy's mailing address from 1125 16th Street, NW, to No. 1 Andrei Sakharov Plaza.

''Every piece of mail the Soviets get will remind them that we want to know what has happened to the Sakharovs,'' said New York Republican Sen. Alfonse M. D'Amato, who proposed the measure.
