calendars. We believe that the courts should be merciful as well as just, because it is the citizen who suffers most. He suffers because of extended litigation, because of court congestion, and because of the expense involved - in some instances even to the jeopardy of his liberty.

VICE-CHAIRMAN: Thank you, Mrs. Griffith. It is a quarter to four and we are due to reconvene at ten tomorrow. We will have the Essex and Hudson County Bar Associations. Samuel Lockburn is in Camden and will not be present tomorrow, but wants to be heard at a later date. I would suggest that we have the executive session then, because I think it will be helpful to all of us if we start outlining what we have heard and what these various proposals are. We will have a full day tomorrow.

If that is agreeable to all of you, and if there is no further discussion, I suggest that we adjourn until ten o'clock tomorrow morning.

(The session adjourned at 3:45 P. M.)
