CR ACQUIMS IE LAID 10 J URORS MENTALITY (Continued From First Page.) Bronx Judge Says There Is Alarming Reluctance of High Standing Men to Serve. Koccnt astonishing verdicts by Juries In criminal cases In this city Xfere probably due, to a great extent, according to County Judge Gtbbs of the Bronx, to the low mental calibre of the men who will consent to sit on juries. Judge Gibbs's opinion was de Uvcrid to-day when forty talesmen of a special panel of 100 claimed to have lcifal excuses which would prevent them serving In a criminal case. "There Is a growing and alarming reluctance," said the court, "on the part of citizens of supposedly high standing to perform Jury duty. To this reluctance I ascrlbo the low class of Juries that have been reaching ver dicts ugalnst the facts and the law of late. "Jury duty Is a isacied obligation, especially at this time when the crim inal calendars are crowded and the prompt functioning of justice Is Im perative. Kvcn at great personal sac rifice citizens summoned to Jury duty hould fulfil their obligations." As the court concluded Its remarks thirty of the reluctant forty returned f to their seats. Some of them were lator accepted us jurors in the case. Judge Muncuso of General Sessions is In receipt of a letter fiom a former juror In his court who agrees In put with Judge Gibbs, but goes further und blames the Judges The letter reads in part: "You Judges have got to get better jurors on your panels men who t o not sympathize with cthrlnul.s on fie theory that somo day tliey may bo in the position of the d;feuktnt. Kverv ' citizen should bo competed to do Jury duty. But tho samo o'il crowd shows up each year. Politicians should bo forced to keep their hands off, for the character of tho puno's is growing steadily worse. Then, tho Judges take up too much tirr.o In allowing motions and delays -when they should be giving consideration to the time of tho Jurors. Apparently they don't i-e-gard tho timo of thi Jurors of any value." 074. The B. XI. T. book value of prop erty Is $247,991,278.
