When jurors reported for duty that morning, however, they found that the t,rial had been put off until Thursday morning. This postponement was made neces- sary by a teclmical error in filing the returns of the sum- mons of the special venire, which should have been re- turned before midnight Monday rather than on Tuesday morn- ing, court officials said. An unusual feature of .t, he drawing of the venire was the fact that at the request of the ,defense counsel Sheriff H. B.
