Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - January 12, 1965, Mason City, Iowa No liquor license is needed For private group parties DES MOINES AP The Iowa Supreme Court ruled in two cases Tuesday that no state liquor license is needed for places rented to private groups whose members bring their own liquor Justice G K Thompson and Chief Justice Theodore Garfield dissented Justice Norman Hays took no part in the decision The rulings in suits brought in District Courts by Fred P and Dorothy S Carey of Iowa City and Sioux Associ ates Inc of Sioux City Both the Johnson and Woodbury Coun ty courts ruled the operations were legal and the Supreme Court majority agreed The facts were essentially the same in both cases A hall was rented to various private groups whose members brought and drank their own liquor Only members and their guests were admitted The Sioux City groups provid ed their own setups for mixing drinks but at Iowa City setups were provided by the Mayflow er the establishment rented by the Careys The Supreme Court said it makes no difference who pro vides the setups or who pays for them Both groups contended they come within the exception the liquor law provides for occa sional private social gatherings of friends or relatives in a pri vate home or place The Liquor Commission ar gued the places were operated more than occasionally and for profit and did not come within the defintion of being private Sioux Associates operates an 965 apartment building containing a ballroom which it has rented to eight or 10 dancing clubs six or eight times during the fall and winter on an irregular basis So long as the club renting the plaintiffs ballroom restrict ed the attendance to their mem bers and guests as shown here the ballroom is a private place the Supreme Court ma jority opinion written by Jus tice T Eugene Thornton said In the Johnson County sui the majority opinion written by Justice W C Stuart said of the Mayflower So long as attend ancc is restricted to invitee guests both the place and the gathering is private Certain acquaintances with similar interests should be con sidered as friends within the meaning of this statute Justice Thompson who wrote the dissenting opinion said he disagrees with the legalistic legerdemain by which the ma jority converts a dance hall regularly operated for substan The newspaper that makes all North lowans neighbors
