Judge Kuper Eulogized at Memorial Sessions in South African Courts

Courts in Pretoria and Johannesburg were adjourned this weekend to permit judges to attend funeral services here for Supreme Court Justice Simon Kuper, the South African Jewish leader who died last week from bullet wounds fired at his home by an unknown assailant. He was eulogized earlier by Judge President Q. de Wett in the Pretoria Supreme Court and by Judges Dowling and Ludorf in Johannesburg. Some 2, 000 persons attended funeral services at the Westpark Jewish Cemetery.
