Judge Shaw in his charge to th
grand jury made forceful appeal for
law enforcement. He stated that the -qualifications
of a juror were good
common sense, an honest mind, and -the
courage of his convictions. If a
man has these attributes he will make
a good juror and will be instrumental
in the enforcement of the law. . How
ever, he warned the jury to. be care
ful in the discharge of their duties in
order that no innocent man be em
barrassed with indictment, An in- .'
dictment of this kind is an injustice '.
to the man, to society, and the court, i
He stated that there was consider1-
able criticism of the functioning of
the courts, but that this was beside
the question. If it were not for., the:
functioning of the court there would .V
be no such thing a organized society, '
for criminals fear only the court. .rtw
He compared society to , a baseball
team, or any team wherein team work
is essential to success. In a (base
ball game there are rule laid, down
and these rules must be followed. If '
a man violates some of the rules of
the game he is penalized' or put out
of the game altogether. It is thi
way in organized society. Laws are
rules of conduct and if a man or et
of merf endanger ehevanetiening- of
society he must be called to account '
for the violation of the rules of the
Along with increased population
and wealth there is an increase in
crime, according to the judge. In or
der to cope with this enlarged crim
inal class, he stated that it was be
coming necessary that there be rural
policeman in practically all of the
counties of the state in order to as
sist the sheriff and his deputies in
the apprehension of criminals.
Judge Shaw briefly touched on
some of the most prevalent of crimes.
Among those, the violation of the
prohibition laws is probably the most
common. Money made in the liquor
husiness, according to the Judge
Shaw, is dishonest and will do the
1 man who makes this kind of a dollar
no good. The most alarming part
of the situation is. the fact that the
1 greafce-f number of the people wher
ipatretniie the blookaderr will not tell.

Another crime, whioh, according to--tf .
the judge, is becoming common ia-i
that of perjurye Th functioning of t
the courts is endangered and hamper
ed on1 account of much perjury in th f
court room. He stated that the man. A f
