Judge and Weather Connive to Permit De Palma to Race

The New York Times
December 2, 1922


FRESNO, Cal., Dec. 1.—Judge R. G. Cornell of Chowchilla and wet weather at Los Angeles connived to keep Ralph De Palma from beginning today a ten-day term in the Madera County jail for speeding. The race at Los Angeles in which De Palma is entered was postponed until Sunday and De Palma was allowed until 2 o'clock Monday afternoon to present himself to begin serving the sentence.  "Thanks, Judge.  I'll be there," was De Palma's reply to the Judge's authority of continuance, obtained over long-distance telephone.
