The bill of exceptions in the present case shows the following waiver: "I, J. Wade Johnson, as Solicitor-General of the Oconee Judicial Circuit, defendant in error, do hereby acknowledge service of a copy of the bill of exceptions in the above captioned matter, and do waive notice of presentation of the bill of exceptions to the trial court judge, and I do further approve the bill of exceptions as correct and complete. This 30 day of July, 1959." A similar waiver of even date is shown for J. M. Johnson, Sheriff of Wheeler County, Georgia. The bill of exceptions was certified on July 31, 1959. Held:
"This waiver of notice prior to presentation to the trial judge for certification, in compliance with Code (Ann.) 6-908.1 does not dispense with service of the bill of exceptions, or waiver thereof, as required by Code 6-911, as amended by Ga. L. 1953, Nov.-Dec. Sess., pp. 440, 456. There is no return of service, or acknowledgment or waiver thereof, on the bill of exceptions, and this court has no jurisdiction of the writ of error.
