MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JANUARY 9 1936 THREE START NEW WAR . ON BOOTLEGGER Preliminary Steps to Halt Sale of Liquor By Drink Taken. By GKOKGE MILLS (towa Daily Press Bureau) DBS MOINES, Jan. 9.--State forces today prepared a new offensive to stamp out the Iowa bootlegger. Preliminary steps taken to halt illicit liquor traffic, especially sale by tae drink, were: 1. Liquor commission demanded Muscatine city officials revoke beer permits of two Museatine beer parlor operators. 2. Commission investigators were instructed to petition mayors and city councils for revocation of beer permits whenever conviction of liquor law violation is obtained. 3. Attorney General B. L. O'Connor called a conference of state law enforcement officials for Thursday morning. Ultimatum Served. Ultimatum wag served on the mayor and city council of Muscatine to revoke the Class B beer permits used in establishments operated by Roy S. McDowell and Glen Nichols in a letter written by Henry J. Roelofs. liquor commission attorney. If no action is taken, the letter warned, the commission will request the state beer board to review the cases relative to canceling both state licenses. State as well as city licenses are required before beer can be sold. McDowell and Nichols paid fines for violations of the liquor law following 1 raids on their places of business, the White Way and the Brown Bottle, commission records show. The raids were conducted last Dec. 4 by state investigators and federal agents. Approximately $800 in liquor was seized, the liquor investigation department said. Tn Wives' Names. Beer permits for both establishments, however, are in the names of the men's wives, according to Roelofs. This his letter termed a vain "subterfuge." Section 1921G4 of the state code, Roelofs' letter said, gives the city council power to revoke licenses under those conditions, even though the wives were not defendants in the cases. Investigators of the liquor commission Tuesday each received a supply of blank petitions drawn up by Roelofs for use in petitioning city officials for revocation of beer permits following conviction of defendants for violation of the state law which forbids sale of liquor except through regular state stores. To Inspect Permit. "Hereafter the first duty of commission agents on a beer parlor raid will Be to inspect the beer permit," Roelofs said. "Arrest of the person in whose name the permit is carried will follow." Attorney General O'Connor refused to comment on the purpose of the law enforcement meeting Thursday morning, but other sources said the session would be devoted to ways and means of solving the illicit liquor problem in the state. Social Service Worker for Kossuth Is Named ALGONA, Jan. 9.--Mrs. Lottie Kain, widow of the late Dr. Kain of Algona. was appointed to act as Kossuth's social service worker for three months, succeeding O. Fred Zwiefel, state and county overseer of poor. Two important projects, in connection with the WPA has been approved and construction will begin in a week or so. They are two dams to be built in the Upper Des Moines river. One dam will be built 5Vz miles south of Algona and the other two miles east of Burt. A third dam is being considered. About 50 men who will receive work in this field will be taken locally and have been certified by WPA officials. Oscar Norman, Algona, and E. Stewart, Burt, will act as foremen.
