Halaman 67 - And it is hereby made the duty of every county, town or municipal official or department, in said county, to render such assistance and co-operation within his or its jurisdictional power to further the objects of this act; and...
Halaman 58 - The court may in its discretion in any case of a delinquent child permit such child to be proceeded against in accordance with the laws that may be in force in this state governing the commission of crimes or violations of city, village, or town ordinance, in such case the petition filed under this act shall be dismissed.
