Bush yesterday. Clarence F. Grabb, attorney for a group of court attendants, announced he would begin a mandamus action this week to upset John R. Reardon, No.109 Campbell Park, as the new court clerk. Reardon was deputy county clerk in charge of automobile licenses until he was advanced to succeed William J. Clark, deceased, as Supreme Court clerk. CONTRARY TO LAW The action is to be against Bush and the State Civil Service Commission, which ratified the appointment. Grabb said: "Bush's whole procedure in ignoring the court attendants qualified for this job was contrary to law and Civil Service practise." Grabb also filed a protest with the Board of Supervisors protesting the appointment of Reardon and asking that the board pass a resolution that it be informed of any change in clasification of positions in the country's service. Grabb said he had in his possession a letter from the State Civil Service Commission detailing request of County Clerk Roy F. Bush to certify the appointment of Reardon to the position and changing the status of examinations from open competitive to promotional examinations. NAMED BY SHERIFF The letter, Grabb said, was sent to W. Paul Partridge, Supreme Court attendant, and to other attendants, who have protested the appointment of Reardon, formerly in charge of the county motor vehicle bureau. Court attendants are named by the sheriff with approval of resi-[[text missing]] judges and come under the [[text missing]] jurisdictions.

One life and danger to a house at No. 101 Savannah Street. The victim was James Callahan, sixty-eight, a roomer at the Savannah Street address. He died in Genesee Hospital at 7 a.m. yesterday from burns suffered in the fire almost four hours before. Rescue efforts of Charles Barrett, another resident of the house, were in vain before a locked door and the head start gained by the blaze. BLAMED ON CIGARET Apparently Callahan fell asleep while smoking a post-midnight ciaret. It set fire to the bed clothing and burned him. He was lying on the floor unconscious when Barrett reached him. Callahan never regained consciousness. Firemen under Battalion Chief Edward G. Selke put out the blaze. A family of nine was driven from the home at No. 400 Columbia Avenue when fire broke out in the cellar early yesterday morning. Alexander Masters, the head of the family, was awakened at 1:20 a.m. by the smell of smoke. He found it had originated from hot coals in a wooden basket. When his efforts to put out the blaze failed, Masters ran upstairs and, aided by his wife, led out the children-Florence, Ann, Albert, Raymond, Harry, Richard, and Arthur Masters. ----- 100 Years Old --- Town Line Turns Out To Honor Mrs. Parks --- BUFFALO, Mar. 27. - The entire Community of Town Line turned out today to do honor to Mrs. Julian Parkes, who is celebrating her 100th birthday.
