Pages of History: Proprietor’s poolroom padlocked

From the pages of the Crescent City American, March 1931.

John Kallos, proprietor of the Racehorse Poolroom on East Second Street, received a call from city authorities on Monday and as a result, “Racehorse” as he is commonly known, took to his heels with a jug of liquid contents, headed for the Hobbs Wall lumber yard just back of his place.

A shot was fired by the city police, which stopped the fugitive just long enough for him to relieve himself of his burden. Then with a fresh start he disappeared into the lumber yard, and as the story goes, is still running yet, with the pistol shots in the distance.
