WTO RENO, NEVADA, THURSDAY, AUGUST UKMBrR OP THX ON1TSD PRESS ASSOCIATIONS TEN PAGES TODAY RECOVERY SPURT REPORTED GOOD MORNING New Judge Needed Court Calendar Lags Bautify Reno Force 67 JACK HUTLEDGE NAMING OF A successor to the post made vacant by the un- timely death of Judge T. F. Moran has been considerably delayed by Governor Kirman. Naming of a new judge for Department Nom- ber 1 of the Washoe District >y Court too quickly after the de- mise of the popular, highly re- spected jurist would have shown a lack of tact and courtesy, of which Governor Kirman would never have been guilty. y But a successor should be named before the November elec- tion. Present indications are that the governor may not appoint a judge until that time. He has made no comment when questioned. He gives the impression that if a successor IS named, it will be 9 some time before action is taken. At present Judge Benjamin F. Curler is shouldering the bur- den, handling his own work and that of the other department as well. Various judges have, at times, offered aid, but they, also, have been so busy the vast ma- jority of the work has been done by Judge Curler. The result is that Judge Curler is badly overworked, the calen- dar threatens to get far behind, litigants' face unnecessary and costly delays, and the smooth routine expected of this impor- tant court is disrupted. Judge Curler is doing a splen- did job keeps his court open far later than required in order to handle as many cases as possible. But it is unfair to expect him to continue this for (mother three months. He has been doing it for months he handled the court during Judge Moran's ill- ness and an additional three- months of this difficult work may possibly undermine his health, too. In all fairness a judge should be appointed by the governor. Nevada laws require this, we are told. Statute 4812 reads in part, "Whenever any vacancy shall oc- cur in the office of justice of the supreme court or district judge I or any state officer the governor SHALL fill same by granting a commission, which shall expire at the next general election by the people..." This has been interpreted as a mandatory appointment of a suc- cessor when such vacanies occur. True no time limit is specified. But in all fairness shouldn't the appointment be made quickly, under the circumstances? ONE WAY TO give employ- ment to hvndreds, and at the same time beautify Reno, would be for the city to demand that own- fers of vacant lots and unsightly yards clean them up. Trees should be kept trimmed. weeds cleared away, grass kept reasonably under control, side- j walks leveled. In sorae sectidhs of Reno, pe- destrians actually have to detour, step into the street and go around lots. is the way such a situa- tion is handled in many cities-. Owners are sent polite letters re- questing them to clean their property. A reasonable time is given them in which to comply With the request But, if no ac- tion has been taken after the deadline has passed, a crew of city employes is sent to the spot and the work done. And the bill f is added to the owner's taxes at the end of the year. Literally hundreds of Jobless could be given part time employ- ment in this manner. The city would improve greatly in apoear- ance. And very few land owners would complain, for their negli- gence in the majority of instances is due to oversight and __ ___ _. ._ __.J Motor Trouble Blamed For Airliner Crash ALBUQUERQUE, N.
