Never judge a book by its cover. April 6, 1965, Seattle police officers found a one-volume treatise on textiles entitled "America's Fabrics" by Bendure and Pfeiffer in an apartment they believed occupied by Mr. Amos Lee Morris, the appellant. Appellant said that he had seen the book, but had never read or examined it. He was thus unaware that pages 25 through 626 thereof had been cut out to form a rectangular compartment between its covers. Concealed in this cutout, the police found marijuana cigarettes, defined in law as a narcotic drug (RCW 69.33.220 (14)), and Obedrin and Seconal, classified as dangerous drugs (RCW 69.40.061), and accuse Morris of possessing both the book and the drugs.
