In an article in the October, 1966, issue of the American Bar Association Journal, Honorable Robert Gardner, Judge of the Superior Court of Orange County, Cali- fornia, directs the attention of the legal profession to the juvenile courts of this country and suggests corrective action in respect to various phases of the operation of these courts. His concern and immediate anxiety were occasioned by the decision of the United States Supreme Court in the case of Morris A. Kent v. United States,; wherein by a 5 to 4 opinion that court found irregularity in the handling of a case in the District of Columbia and reversed a conviction of a juvenile on six counts of house- breaking and robbery.
