A study of judgments rendered by
the circuit court of Wayne county
has been undertaken by the legal
research institute of the University
in an attempt to prepare legislation,
which will lighten the duties of this
court and enable it to catch up to
its docket.
Data has been assembled on more
than 4,000 cases in which judg-
ments were involved during the
years 1927 to 1930. The circuit court
records were searched and informa-
tion obtained on amounts claimed
e rand received in each case. The na-

Two new courses will be offered in
the sociology department during
the coming semester, Prof. Arthur{
E. Wood, acting director of the de-:
partment, announced yesterday.
The first will be a lecture courseE
in child guidance, which will beI
given by Dr. Nathaniel Hirsch, a
visiting instructor from Detroit,
who is connected with the Wayne
county clinic for child study pro-
vided by the Wayne county juvenile E
The second course will be given
on urban development by the new
head of the sociology department,
Prof. Roderick D. McKenzie. Profes-
sor McKenzie, who is at present in
Chicago, where he is engaging in'
work with the President's commit-
tee on social trends, will take up his
directorial duties here at the be-
ginning of the second semester.

To lighten the circuit court du-I
ties, it will be necessary to increase'
the jurisdiction of the common
pleas court to include some of the
work now handled by the higher!
court. The practical difficulty in.
this work lies in determining the
proper point to which the power of
the lower court should be raised.
When this data is assembled it
will be possible to determine accu-
rately this point and to frame legis-
lation to correct the trouble. At
the present time, the circuit court
is about three years behindin the
disposition of cases ready for trial.
The study has been undertaken
by the legal research institute at
the request of judges and lawyersI
in Detroit who are interested in the
preparation of legislation to relieve
the serious situation that now ex-

Thomas O'Brien, chief of police,
yesterday stated that he definitely
favored the death penalty for first
degree murders and the proposal,
made recently by the executive
committee of the Michigan Police
Chiefs' association, that the ex-
treme penalty be enforced.
Chief O'Brien said, however, that
he did not approve of the demands
of some members of the committee
> which would require the supreme
court to pass upon convicted per-
sons before the death penalty could
be invoked.
"I believe," he continued, "that
capital punishment is desirable not
because of the men who will be
punished in this manner but be-
cause of the moral effect which the
law will have on the statute books.
- The penalty should be invoked,
a & however, only for first degree mur-
ders supported by conclusive evi-
C - dence."
