COMPOSED OF FIVE CHAPTERS, EACH OF WHICH PERTAINS TO MAJOR ELEMENTS OF THE JUVENILE JUSTICE SYSTEM IN MONTGOMERY, THIS REPORT IS ORGANIZED BY STATING EACH 1959 RECOMMENDATION AND BY ANALYZING ITS IMPLEMENTATION. EVOLVING FROM THIS ANALYSIS ARE DESCRIPTIONS OF 1975 CONDITIONS AND 1975 RECOMMENDATIONS TO ENHANCE ASSISTANCE TO CHILDREN IN TROUBLE. IN EACH CHAPTER TREATMENT OF NEW ISSUES FOLLOWS THE ANALYSIS OF 1959 RECOMMENDATIONS AND STATEMENTS OF 1975 RECOMMENDATIONS. (AUTHOR ABSTRACT MODIFIED)
