Second body found in Klamath River
   JOHNSON – The body of a second man lost in the Klamath over the weekend was recovered near here Wednesday.
   Roger Snow, 20, of Dobbins, Cal., was found by local residents floating in a small cove in the river not far from the place where he was lost Saturday night.
   Snow was drowned when he stepped into deep water in a riffe near Tekta Creek while pulling a boat along the shore at about 11:30 p.m. Saturday.
   Sheriff’s Marine Posse members under the direction of deputies Jack Whellhan, Robert Shaw and Carl Anderson, aided by local volunteers, have been searching the river since early Sunday morning for the bodies of Snow and of William I. Clyde, 44 Eureka.
   Clyde, whose body was recovered Tuesday near Pecwan, drowned at about 5:45 p.m. Saturday when his canoe hit a rock and capsized about 250 yards from the point where his body was eventually found.
   Deputy Coroner Russ Allen said the bodies were identified through personal effects.
