Breakthrough
Hits Dismissal of
ADL Aide's Case

N

The rightist organization Break-
through has asked County Prose-
cutor Samuel Olsen to fire William
Hathaway, chief of the criminal
division, for having the case
dropped against
an Anti-Defama-
tion League staff
member involved
in a fracas with
Breakthrough
members last
March.
In a leaflet cir-
culated by Break-
through p i c ket-
ers July 16, they
asked Olsen to
issue a new war-
rant for the ar-
rest and trial of
Hathaway Melvin E h r e n-
freund, ADL assistant director, on
a charge of assault and battery
against Ralph Piper, member of
Breakthrough.
Ehrenfreund came up for trial
July 11, but Hathaway asked
that the charges be dropped,
saying a warrant should not
have been issued in the first
place.
The March incident occurred
during a Vietnam peace march at
Campus Martius. Breakthrough
insisted that Ehrenfreund struck
Piper during its own counter-
campaign. Disturbing - the - peace
charges were dropped against the
two men, as well as two other
Breakthrough members, before
Ehrenfreund's trial came up.
Olsen now has been asked to re-
move Hathaway "for improper
conduct in his handling of this
case, including the use of trickery
and deceit in an attempt to 'per-
suade' the complainant (Piper) to
drop the case voluntarily."

Shifman Candidate
for Probate Judge
in Oakland County

Oak Park Municipal Court Judge
Burton Shifman, the leading pro-
bate judge candidate by a wide
margin in a preference poll con-
ducted by the Oakland County Bar
Association, was rated "outstand-
ing and preferred" by the Bar.
Judge Shifman served more than
five years on the board of educa-
tion and as Juvenile Court referee,
plus nine years as a judge. He also
was a member for many years of
the National Council on Crime and
Delinquency.
"The problems of delinquency
in Oakland County," he said, "are
very much different from those in
tilt inner-city area. We must work
out our own solutions, and it is
going to take a cooperative effort
on the part of the home, the
school, and the church or syna-
gogue, rather than relying on a
centralized organization."

The New York Times described
him at the time of the Chrysler
case as a man who "invokes democ-
racy, faith."
He also is concerned with family
problems and the administration of
laws, as well as equality of treat-
ment.
