Will face Superior court judge Emmet Wilson in los Angeles in latest developments growing out of the councilman a failure to attend Council sessions once May to when two of his colleagues were recalled. In the courtroom sequence. Judge Wilson will Rule on a writ of mandate which would Force niday a attendance in Council so that vacancies created by the recall of mayor Arthur f. Malin and councilman William a. Murphy can be filled. Because of niday a absence the two remaining councilmen. James r. Griffiths and Emil Bolz have been powerless to act on City business though Lack of an official quorum. I Omorrow will Mark the second Legal development in the Case. Monday in the first move. Judge Wilson issued an alternative writ ordering niday to attend tuesday nights Council session or appear in court to explain his action. Niday chose the latter course and last night said he would be in court i h attorneys Friday morning. Issues new statement he also issued a formal statement in which he said a in the statement made by me last week i endeavoured to set fort ii As clearly As possible the position i have taken with reference to my participation in the activities of our City Council. Quot n in charges have been made that i have been unwilling to cooperate with tile remaining members of the Council in conducting certain business which it is claimed is now pending before that body. I wish to assure All the fair minded citizens of our Community that i am now and always have been willing to meet with the remaining members of tile Council for the sole purpose of transacting any urgent routine business provided however that such sessions Are confined strictly to routine matters. Quot on the other hand i am not to be forced into the Hasty and perhaps ill advised selection of two additional members of the City Council until i have had sufficient time and adequate assurances that such appointments will result in the Best interest of our City. Quot i am likewise unwilling to become a party to any transactions that would result in the dismissing of competent City personnel for purely political reasons. A these matters Are of far too grave importance and mean too much to the future welfare of our people to be acted upon under political pressure. A i am certain that the great majority of our citizens Are deeply interested in the City a welfare and not in the personal advantage of any member of the City Council.
