publishedfor purposes of gain.
Upon
the
authority of a search
warrant issued
under
the
section, all such books, etc., may be
seized
and
taken before a court which shall,
under
certain
circumstances, order their destruction.
There
is a proviso to
exempt books, etc., required as evidence in further proceedings.
Where
the
number of books, etc., is large, it may well be
that
the
only possible method of ensuring
that
the order of
the
court is carried out, is for an officer of
the
court to supervise
the
actual burning in an incinerator.

CLARKE
HALL
AND
MORRISON'S
LAW RELATING TO CHILDREN AND YOUNG PERSONS.
Fifth Edition. By A. C.
L.
Morrison, C.B.E., and L. G. Banwell. Butter-
worth &Co. (Publishers)
Ltd.
Price 90S. net.
This
new edition of the standard work on children and young persons
contains the law up to 27th April, 1956, and so much new law has appeared
since the fourth edition was published five years ago,
that
an additional 60
pages have been found necessary. Chief of the new Acts contained in this
edition are the Children and Young Persons (Amendment) Act, 1952; the
Prison Act, 1952; the Magistrates' Courts Act, 1952; the Licensing Act,
1953; the Children and Young Persons (Harmful Publications) Act, 1955,
and the Children and Young Persons Act, 1956.
The
new Boarding-out of
Children Regulations, 1955, with the important extension to children boarded
out
by voluntary organisations are given in full. A number of new cases is
included and the book is improved by an extension of some of its seven
Divisions. "Clarke Hall &Morrison" has taken a firm hold as an indispens-
able text-book for use in Juvenile Courts, and this new edition will be
welcomed by all who use
it-and
that
means everybody having anything to
do with children and young persons, whether in the juvenile court or the
children's department of a local authority.
A GUIDE TO JUVENILE COURT LAW, by Gilbert H. F. Mumford, Solicitor.

12S.
6d.
The
fourth edition of the Mumford's handy little book on Juvenile
Court law contains the law up to date, and has been re-arranged to improve
the clarity of the subject.
There
is certainly no better book for those engaged
in juvenile courts who require speedy and accurate reference to any particular
point.
For
example, a query may arise concerning what requirements may
be included in a probation order. Pp. 86, et seq produce an instantaneous
reply which is comprehensive and accurate, although perhaps one might
quibble at the suggestion
that
aprobation order may include arequirement
"to
reside where directed by the Probation (Case) Committee".
It
is at least
doubtful whether aprobationer can properly be asked to consent to reside
in some place not known to anyone at the time the order is made.
Generally, however, there is nothing to complain about, and this is a
book
that
should be in every juvenile court.
