Facklis, owner and operator of the High Life Pool hall, whose permit to sell beer was among the five to be rejected by the city council Monday, went into court Tuesday asking an order ot mandamus commanding the city fathers issue him a license. Maintaining that the action of the city council was "capricious, arbitrary in gross abuse of such discretion as may rest with them and contrary to the clear legal duty under the provisions" of the law, Mr. Facklis whose establishment is at 107 South Federal avenue, also asks that the court fix a time and place of hearing on the petition and for a temporary ruling to "prevent the irreparable damage and injury which will result to the plaintiff if be is not permitted to operate his place of business, pending final de termination of this petition."

M. Robertson, Harold Romey and John A. Cazanas. He also sets forth that the building in which he operates conforms to all laws, health and fire regulations applicable and is a safe and proper place for the business. No Charges Filed. The plaintiff further states that e was granted a B permit to sell eer for the fiscal year ending Ai.pril 25, 1934, by the defendants, mt while this permit was in force o charges of any kind were lodged with law, enforcement officers for a iolation of the law under which he permit was issued and that no action was taken by the council to orfeit the permit. Mr. Facklis alleges further that the "defendants have granted class B permits to diverse and sundry other applicants whose qualifica tions therefore are no better than those of the plaintiff."

Court Ransom, veteran of the Civil war and prominent in the G. A R and civic affairs, was never known to have taken a drink and as a rule employed abstainers as bartenders. He had on his payroll members of the famous Blue Ribbon order of bartenders, who never drank whether on or off duty. Behind the bar was the sign: "This court is always in session!" On the wall was a large blackboard on which city authorities placed the names of those who were black listed, that is who were drinking too much or depriving their families of necessities. As a rule Court never waited for the authorities to write the names, but placed them there himself. If one of the blacklisted individuals came in for a drink Court merely pointed to the blackboard.
