Mr. Elson and Mrs. Rosenheim propose that panels of carefully selected laymen be employed to hear and dispose of certain minor offenses committed by children whose cases could go to the juvenile court. They declare that a system such as this could be workable, that it would help to relieve the juvenile court of a crushing case load and that it would involve the public in the critical problem of dealing with juvenile offenders.
