Judges Run Street Cars HAMBURG (AP) — Hamburg's traffic courts were slightly understaffed recently. This was because 20 jiidgr.s, prosecutors anil lawyers were dr:vin« streetcars through the city's streets. The idea was to give the judge ami prosecutors in the traffic courts a chance to sec the "other side" of the cases coming up for trial before them. Afterwards, one judge confessed that he considered himself standing with one foot in jail half the time he was driving. The 20 came through the experiment with a cleam record. They only had two "small" accidents, officials of the Hamburg streetcar company .said. PAGE FIVE For^A Short Bob: Self Scissoring ?K$H fa V'''''^f 5 '^ l >f"'•*'(I-' '"/''.
