Fourteeii Plans Dropped For Juries To Survey Crime WASHINGTON (J1 — The Justice Department has dropped the plan to have special federal grand juries in all parts of the country sit once a year to survey local crime conditions. Atty-Gen. James P. McGranery says it smacked of "showmanship" and that he believes regular grand juries that sit month-in and month-out can handle things just as well. He has disbanded the 13-man "racket unit" which his predecessor, J. Howard McGrath, set up in the Justice Department last January to evaluate reports from the special juries and keep the^ program in motion. McGranery made it clear Sat-! urday he does not think much of the special grand jury idea, originated by McGrath and strongly recommended by the Kefauver Crime Investigating Committee. Asserting that his faith lies wit! the regular juries to maintain federal law enforcement on a con tinuing basis, McGranery tolc newsmen: ''Showmanship ought not to b 'any part of the administration o justice. Such administration calls for dignity and certainty." As to the "racket unit," the at torney general said: "I don't subscribe to the nam 'racket unit'. Labels won't do the trick. We have lots of units in th criminal division, functioning ef fectively, and not known by Holly wood names." McGranery said: "An effectively f u n c t ioning grand jury needs no special name or calling. It can be summoned into existence most readily when t need is shown for it and the usua regular terms of court in the various districts of the United States are quite capable of taking care of any situation having to do with violation of our federal laws." McGrath's call for the special juries in January resulted in such sessions in only about half the 94 districts. The exact figure and the results of their work has never been announced because the Justice Department just quit talking about Hie juries after McGranery took over, on grounds that all such sessions are secret. i ^-- Mother Charged, Intent To KiU CLEVELAND ffl — Police charged a 27 - year - old mother with assault with intent to kill Saturday after she said she pushed her boy out a second story window because he would not go to sleep.

Kerr said the couple had been drinking. He said she gave these details: Her husband fell asleep on a sofa and she went to bed in another room. Roy, and his sisters, Helen, 7, and Annette, 3, "were cutting up, whispering and playing. "I had warned them several times they would have to stop and go to sleep." Finally she picked up Roy, carried him up to the apartment's windows and shoved him out. Then she went back to bed. Americans Crash Air All-British Air Show FARNBOROUGH, Eng.
