BY 2 BOB BURNS Sometimes I think the system of punishin' law-breakers by fine is not altogether fair, when two people commit the same offense, they should be punished equally and it hurts some people more to dig up the price of a fine than It does others. That's the reason punishment by fine is never gonna stop crime amon? people who con alTord it. I knew one old man down home who usc'ta hang out with the boys on Saturday night and he always wound up by gitlin' in trouble. He was brought before the Judge one Saturday night and the Judge fined him $5.00. Thc old man dug in i his pocket and pulled out a bill ' and handed it to the Judge and he says "Well, Judge, I been workin' pretty steady this week—here's $10.00—that'll pay me up to and Includln' next Saturday night."

I Under the meinod of Jury selection voted by the state's electorate last fall in simplifying criminal procedure, the death case jury was chosen fairly rapidly in contrast with the long drawn out process usually followed under thc old procedure.
