CAP) — Legal questions sometimes take on a rural character during hearings in this East Central Texas farm and ranch town. During a recent jury selection, a venireman indicated he didn't understand how a defendant would be considered innocent until proven guilty. County Atty. James Kershavv gave him this illustration: "If you were going to pick out 10 cows from a herd of 20, you would look at all 20, wouldn't you," he said. "We want you to look at our 10 cows and at the 10 cows of the defense." The venireman indicated he already had an opinion about the state's "10 cows". He was excused. i I Let a Shell dealer take one hi« worry 3. Don't he She cork in a traffic bottle- out of ciU drhin». Nothing's more up- neck.
