ADL Asks Removal of Judge

LOS ANGELES (JTA)—
The Anti-Defamation
League of Bnai Brith has
asked for the removal of a
recently appointed judge,
claiming his objectivity is
tainted by his religious be-
liefs.
In a letter to the commis-
sion, the ADL said Fresno
Municipal Court Judge
Hugh Goodwin was critical
of the First Amendment
which safeguards the sepa-
ration of church and state.
According to the ADL,
Goodwin has said : "Any re-
lition or form of govern-
ment that is not based on
Jesus Christ and the belief
that only through Christ
can one obtain personal sal-

vation is doomed to destruc-
tion."

Joshua Kheel, the ADL's
Pacific Southwest regional
president, said in the let-
ter: "A comment such as
this...would be sufficient to
arouse - concern about the
manner in which a member
of the bench would treat
those who come before him
whose religion he perceives
as, not one of 'equal valid-
ity' and, therefore, 'doomed
to destruction."'
Kheel added: "It has

been reported to us that the
judge has conditioned pro-
bation and avoidance of jail
for a guilty defendant on
mandatory church attend-
ance."

Shapiro: LZA Backs Israel
Has Right to Criticize It Too

NEW YORK (JTA)—Dr.
Judah J. Shapiro, president
of the Labor Zionist Al-
liance, declared that "we
will support Israel political-
ly, morally and financially,
but at the same time we re-
serve the right to say that
we are unhappy with some
of the expressions of the Is-
raeli government."
He referred specifically
to the possible agreement
between a Likud-led govern-
ment and the Agudat Israel
faction on religious issues
which would "impose the
tyranny of the 15 percent
Orthodox over the 85 per-
cent non-Orthodox Jews in
Israel."

Dr. Shapiro addressed 600
Labor Zionists at a birthday
tribute to him at the New

York Hilton Hotel spon-
sored jointly by the LZA
and the National Com-
mittee for Labor. Israel
which Shapiro also heads.

Shapiro described the re-
cent election results in Is-
rael as "not a. victory for
Likud" but "a Labor de-
feat." He noted that "Likud
did not get a majority of
the votes and can reign
only through a coalition.
The paradox is that the
Labor. Alignment was sup-
ported by the white collar
and middle class elements,
while Likud, a right-wing
party, gained the support of
the poor people and blue col-
lar workers. Maybe there
Was something wrong with
Labor Zionism in Israel,"
Shapiro said.

Atlanta Braves Owner Turner
Apologizes for Joke About Jew

NEW YORK—Ted Turn-
er, owner of the Atlanta
Brves and Hawks, has
apologized to the Bnai Brith
Anti-Defamation League for
his seemingly anti-Semitic
remarks about a Jewish
player's agent.
Turner, in remarks made
at an awards breakfast of
the National Sportscasters
and Sporthwriters Associ-
ation in North Carolina,
said of the agent, "I'll tell
you the way (Jerry) Kap-
stein conducts his business
and the reason I don't like
him. After all, you should
have some reason to dislike
a guy besides the fact that

he wears a full-length fur
coat and is a Jew."
Turner also said he had
written a letter to the agent
and signed it, "Yours in
Christ."

In a letter to ADL's re-
gional office in Atlanta,
Turner said he realized
"anti-Semitism is no joking
matter" and that he deeply
regretted having made the
statement, even though he
had intended it to be fce-
tious.

"I hope you'll accept my
apology," he added. "The
flippant comment does not
represent my convictions in
any way, shape or form."
