I would like particularly to stress the role of the behavioral scientist in the effective operation of the Juvenile Court. Perhaps you are not entirely familiar with the modern Juvenile Court operation. Perhaps you regard it as a simple one-man operation in which the judge has only to look into his law books and there find the answers to all the problems which come his way. This, I assure you, is not the picture. Every day, every hour, the judge is confronted by problems which defy solution. The Court over which I preside has a physical plant which covers eleven acres of groups, a staff of eighty employees, and an annual budget of approximately one million dollars. Justice, in a juvenile case, is a complicated, expensive, elusive commodity.
