79-Year Old is Arrested When
Officers Find His 110 Gallons
Will McMasters of Near Pine-
bluff “Good Sport”; Helps Of
ficers Load Illegal Beverage
"Spirits” were low around the court
house on Monday afternoon as one
hundred and ten gallons of liquor was
poured into obllvon in the sheriff’s of
fice before the eyes of an interested
group gathered to witness the event.
It was a case of “liquor, liquor every
where and not a drop to drink.”
On Saturday afternoon Officers
Dees, Slack, Grimm and Lambert vis
ited the home of Will ^/cMasters on
Federal Route 1, about a mile south
of Pinebluff. They had heard that
whiskey was being sold there. They
found the 79-year-old man and his
invalid wife of 81 summers at home.
McMasters admitted that he had sold
some liquor some time ago, but that
he had none at the present. The of
ficers investigated and found the 110
gallons cleverly concealed about a
pcrch of the house. There were loose
boards in the porch floor w'hich could
be pushed aside and underneath the
porch, which was underpinned around
the edge, were concealed numerous
half-gallon jars of the illegal bever
age. Shelves were arranged within
the porch railing to accommodate jars
which could be reached through pan
els in the wall.
McMasters was described as "a
good sport.” “He helped us load it,”
one of the officers related. McMasters
was placed under $1,000 bond and
Jrhn Harris, his colored cook who re
sides nearby, is being held in jail in
connection with the case.
Some of the liquor was in standard
half-gallon jars while a large quan
tity w-as in the type known to offi
cers as "bootleg” jars. These are
plain containers that do not bear
the manufacturer's name, and meas
urement discloses that they lack ap
proximately a pint of containing the
