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.
