Delayed justice is one of man's stubborn maladies.1 Just as stubborn is' man himself, and this has led him to persist in prescribing for the delay affliction instead of trying to understand it. Today there are still those who believe that solution can precede understanding and that what this country needs is a good five-cent "cure" for delay. Happily, others have recognized the need to put first things first. All through the country more and more groups are at work methodically getting the facts that are essential to understanding what is wrong and what is needed.2 The Columbia University Project for Effective Justice was founded in 1956 to aid in acquiring this type of basic knowledge.
