The Act of 1931, Chapter 323, authorized the appointment by the
Governor of a Magistrate for Juvenile Causes in each of the counties
of the State, except Allegany, Washington and Baltimore Counties,
provided the Board of County Commissioners decide to have such a
Magistrate, and fix and make provision for the payment of the Magis-

This law also requires the Governor to appoint a Juvenile Court

one of these counties decides to have a Magistrate for juvenile Causes,
then it is the duty of the Juvenile Court Committee for that county
to recommend to the Governor qualified persons for the position, and
after the Magistrate has been appointed the Committee from time to
time is to advise with the Magistrate in respect to the selection of
probation officers and other matters.
