In 1939 the International Workers Order, an unincorporated association, had a picnic and dispensed beer through its secretary to its members without charge. The association had not obtained a license to sell beer. The secretary, defendant herein, was arrested and tried for violation of the Liquor Control Act, which made it a misdemeanor for a person to sell liquor without a license. Held, that an unincorporated association is not a person within the meaning of the statute, and therefore there was no sale. People v. Budzan, 295 Mich. 547, 295 N. W. 259 (1940).
