(At 3 ) - Courts of the 6th Judicial Circuit Will be reorganized this summer preparn lory to adoption of the statewide court modernlzatio approved by the voters in 1962. In last year's election the blue ballot calling for a new jiidlnla article in the Illinois constitution was passed. Its aim Was to pu the administration of justice on mbr« efficient plan*. Hie 6th circuit cbflsists of Macon, fietiglas, fcewlit, MeHllrlfc, Champaig'rt and Plait counties, fudge Martin E. Morthland June 29 was named chief Judge of the circuit aild is believed id be Uie first tn Illinois so designated. Sept. .1 is the deadllng fof nanv _ a chief Judge in each circuit of the state. Judge Morthland said one of the first-steps to be taken will be utilization of county and probate Judge of his district as associate judges of the Circuit Court. Under existing rules each of these courts acts separately and as a result there is little close relationship between them In the past, the judge said, the county and probate courts have been considered subordinate to CiMilt Cd».irts, The Judicial article "will remove this atHltide by giving these courts greater jurisdiction. Judge Morthlnnd said that when the reform becomes statewide Jan. 1, lfl«, Its benefits will in- elude full utilization of Judge manpower; uniformity of court rules, and increased stature of county and probate courts. At present, he said, some courts are overloaded with cases while some have little work to do. Tills problem will Iw solved by spreading the work among them. ' Another advantage will be the reduction In the number of trips by judges traveling from County sent to county seat of the circuit, a procedure In force since nil' ttOApftftl flttit ted. wardsvnle parents wer* dlschnrg- ed Wednesday from St. Joseph's Hospital, Highland. 4 Discharged *«*' M\ *(**!* Lerrh and Sbh, 1209 Oakland) Mrs. Dennis Oder and son, 10255 nuskln; Mrs. 'Lena Poo*, 1220 Harrison.
