-Terrific Battle Expected,
Pelz May Box Winner in
Next Fight Card
Promptly at 7:30 every night
Cobby Clark begins a bard and
serious workout at the local arm
ory, in preparation for bis coming
' fight Friday night with Frankie
Grandetta, the boy wonder of
Tf ollywood. Bobby realizes that
a victory over the famous pet of
the film stars will just about make
hi reputation as a fighter, and is
training with a -proportionate
amount of enthusiasm.
Comparative scores, the oracle
BO much used in predicting the
oatcome of football battles, might
also be applied to the coming bat-
. tie. .
"Both boys have fought Willie
Gordon, Portland scrapper, and
the results tney hat, in meeting
him can be used as a basis of cora
' parison. Orandetta's fight with
. Cordon is fresh in tbe minds of
most fight fans, and resulted in
i a hair-line decision for Gordon.
Bobby Clatk fought Gordon last
ytar and managed to win a draw"
vith him- eo the comparative dope
,- gives Bobby the edge against
. GrandeUau. . Not many, fight fol
lowers go so far a to predict a
victory for the local boy, how
ever, but most of them agree that
' the fight will be a close one
, .Judging from the reputation of
, both men, the fight ought to be
as good as the terrible battle put
on here recently by Phil Bayes and
Benny Pelz. It will be just as
rioee and probably faster.. Clark
is like lightning in his movements
: and Grandetta has also won quite
. ' a reputatiop for not staying long

Plant, ' of bringing Benny .Pela

the next fight is supported better

behind, as it costs money to bring

Judge C. H. McColIoch of ti e Ba
ker county circuit court in the
case of the state of Oregon vs.
Kphrium Barnes, the supreme
urt todav said it was within the
province, of a jury to infer from
the appears ncos and tirvam stances
surrounding a case a; to whether
or not a person was 1n possession
of intoxicating liquor, although
the liquor in question was at the
time cached away.
Barnes was arr?fi-:-i on an
abandoned ranch in Baker ounty.
At the time of his arrest lie was
in the vicinity of a liquor cache
and in his automobile. some 7 5 or
100 feet away were several demi
johns. On the ground near the
car was a shovel.
"It is immaterial whether the
defendant hgd actually deposited
the liquor where it was found, or
its hiding place revealed to him
by the party who did deposit it,
or he otherwise learned of its
place of concealment. He was
found there with his own auto
mobile, with the necessary tools
for excavating the liquor, and with
containers customarily i,sed for
I me convenient, nanaiing oi liquor.
The jury could infer from all this
that he claimed the right and had
the power to control, manage and
oispose of the same. If the de-J
ftndant had the control of that
liquor concealed as it was, he was
guilty of unlawful possession
thereof.' , - f
