.'/•* MONDAY, DICCEMWCK 1U, 194G BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COUR1KR NEWS ill Post-War Juries Condone Crime Experts Find Greater Tendency Toward Clemency for Accused. DENVER (UP)—A wave of jury verdicts across Ihe country I" showing nnpi'ccedcitted leniency towards defendants in criminal trlnls of violence. It Is explained 'by Denver psychiatrists us a direct result of the war. nislrict Attorney James T. Burke said he has received reports prosecutors elsewhere indicating a marked turn to extremes In leniency on the nart of Juries. Denver psychiatrists, who say present conditions make a similar Ireml which followed the first World War "look like a rehearsal," explain that most of the verdicts arc Ihe result of a lack of personal control on tlie part ot the Juror. The jury verdicts show a subconscious revolt against man-made restrictions, the scientists explain When a juror, faced with passing on a case, makes his decision lie draws on ills own personal experience rather than taking an objective view in forming his reaction to the trial evidence presented, lie must call upon his own conscience i" testing the fncts of the case, aUd H 13 this conscience which has been warped by the long suffering and privations ot war. combined with the constant fear of death and the sight of violence. ', The long war years, with increased restrictions and tendency to make people subservient to ^ centra] force, helped to destroy individual thinking which governs a persons' conscience or sense j of what js right or wrong. These conditions ( brought on by the war only aggravated an owr- all tendency among modern men to retreat, from an individual philosophy of right and wrong and to depend on man-made laws,to gov r - ern their actions. A mass of .man-made restrictions has been enacted and enforced which govern the modern man'.s life to the point where his individual knowledge of right and wrong has been deadened, psyc".^|r»:rTsts continue. Tlie sudden death, uncontrolled hate and fear nnt! long periods of personal privations suffered, during the war further tend to. war]) the thinking of individuals frorn its normal form. The person's conscience has been deadened. . "Individuals are becoming less individualistic and are losing their ; own self-respect," one phychiittrist said, -in the early days, "pio'ner.'-s. seeing crimes committed, felt a personal responsibility to do something about it. Now, for tlie most Part, they a ie content to rely on the mass Of «'»lute restrictions to uphold'tficif social structure " " Italian 'Sandwich Men' Take to Wheels PAGE NINE Italian version of "sandwich man" is a lot easier on the feet than Ihe kind These biltc-mountcq posters, P>c^rcujpllrmgja^n^on^£lrecl,,jidvcrtlso American movies. Atomic Age Fails to Bring End Of Old Muzzle-Loading Rifles SHARTLESVILLE, Pa. IUPI — P.fviz'itc-loading rifles, popular when tlie United States was young, still resound today In the Blue Hidlse foothills of Berks County in Pennsylvania. .
