COPENHAGEN, March' 14.
This is the mildest winter Den

nights when this has been the case
have been exceedingly rare,.

will be entertainment of a high

In the semi-finals, Bill Hunt, the
husky Salem fireman, is scheduled
to go sis 3-minute rounds with
Chan Butler, a clever fighter from
Portland. Hunt has It on his op?

Consider that, since 1911 when the first "path

the time came to be computed in hours.
Seemed as if no car no driver could lower the

Remember, this route crosses three mountain
ranges Cascades, Siskiyous and the Tehachapi.
And the road zig-zags back and forth as it climbs
switches back and forth hundreds of times as it
descends with steep inclines on the other side.
It's a gigantic game of "crack the whip." Only r

Only a car that could take the steepest up-grades
at 45 miles per hour and 50 on down grades;
brakes that could decelerate so quickly as to take
the hair-pin turns, in safety, then get away again.
If brakes failed the precipice was the only alterna
