Barmen Must Observe Black List in Capetown CAPETOWN (UP)—Jf (he liar- man in a Capetown hotel peers intently at a customer and then consults a list behind the bar before serving the beer, it is because he does not want lo be fined. For in Capetown there is an official "black list," and the names on it comprise till sorts of people native and European. A man on the black list cawiot purchase liquor legally. He may not enter a bar or off-license, and must not have liquor in his possession. And it is an oftense to serve such a person. People get on the black: list largely owing [ 0 affidavits sworn by relatives. They are blacklisted for six or twelve months. The ban however, is only operative in the district where it is issued, so the victim may go to a neighboring town and buy all the liquor he wants. PAGE THRKK Robert H.
