ASSOCIATED AND CENTRAL PRESS SERVICE
Judge Walter Small Is
Holding Term Os Court
In Exchange With Grady
permanent Grand Jury Serv
ing at lU Final Term,
And No Charge Is
Delivered Them
DOCKET HEAVY ONE
FOR PRESENT WEEK
Three Homicide Cases And
Two Burglary Defendants
Must Be Disposed Os, As
Well As Number of Minor
Actions; Calendar Taken
Up Immediately
Vance Superior Court was convened
here todav for the June term, facing
one of the fiardeet criminal dockets
tn a long time, with three homicide
cases and two defendants charged
with first degree s urg!ary to be tried.
The actual number of case.* on the
calendar is not so large as id some
other courts, but the natnre of some
of them is such as that a considerable
length of time is expected to dispose
of them and Indications now are that
the entire week will be required to
clear up the business, if even it can
be done then.
Judge Walter L. Small, of Elizabeth
City, is presiding, by virtue of an ex
change with Judge Henry A. Grady.
Clinton, who has travelled this district
for the first half of 1933. Judge Grady
held the January and March sessions
of court.
Since a permanent grand Jury is sit
ting in this court, and has been in
office for the past six months, it was
not necessary that a charge be made
to the grand Jury by the court at the
opening .and as soon as the pre
liminaries were dispensed with, in
cluding the calling of the calendar.
Solicitor R. Hunt Parker, who is pro
secuting the docket'ror the State, be
gan calling cases for trial. He was
well into the calendar by the noon
recess.
In addition to the burglary and
homicide cases, there are a number
of minor actions to be tried, includ
ing breaking and entering charges. A
large number of prisoners were in
Jail awaiting trial, and these were to
be gotten out of the way as rapidly
as possible.
