On this day: Jan. 23, 1930

Clarence McCord thanked Deputy Sheriff Geo. Kanz for picking him up. McCord started for Walla Walla from Waitsburg with the thermometer 15 to 20 below zero. He began to imbibe from a gallon of moonshine, but his car ran out of gas. He fell asleep and was half frozen when Deputy Kanz found him the next morning.
