to so act, shall organize said juries and have immediate supervision
and control of them. The said jurors, after being regularly

appear and report for jury service before said judge so designated,
who shall hear excuses of said jury and swear them in
for service for the week that they are to serve to try all cases
that may be submitted to them in any of said criminal district
courts, and they may be used interchangeably in the criminal
district courts. In the event of a deficiency of said jurors, the
judge having control of said panel of jurors shall order such additional
jurors to be drawn from the wheel as may be sufficient
to meet such emergency, but such jurors shall act only as special

further needed. The provisions of the articles commonly known
