Crime Runs Rampant—Unknown Senior
Purloins Koyl Cup—Three Suspected
The Koyl cup is gone! Nick 'Jaurt
guy, dts last owner, has issued a ea.ll for
private detectives. Com.1 early and
avoid the rush. No reward is offered.
Nick says he has his suspicions and all
he needs in order to take legal action
is evidence. There is enough of the cir
cumstantial kind but the whereabouts of
the cup itself is a mystery.
However, on this campus there are
four persons who have leeently been cam
ducting tl emselves in rather a shady
manner. Glenn Dudley, “Scoop" Rath
bun, Skinny" Scaiefe. and Fred Kiddle
each has openly stated that he considers
the president of the student body a man
unfit to own the cup which is awarded
to the best all round student in the Uni
versity each year by the Y. M. C. A.
They claim that ns a committee they
were entitled to remove the elegant stein
from his room. The methods used they
refuse to divulge, likewise the name of
the one who committed the deed.
Nick was fearful for the safety of the
cup after the last class meeting so took
it off the shelf in his room and hid it in
some old clothes. Shortly after he met
Dudley on the campus and the latter
stopped him with the question, “Where's
“In my room,” was the reply. That
was all but the remuk had made him
curious. When he got back to the dorm
he looked for the silver bauble. It was
“Personally I suspect Scaiefe,” Jaure
guy told an Emerald : eporter,
Scaiefe was then given the third de
gree which elicited the following: in an
swer to “Did you take the cup?”
“I refuse to answer. Our class prexy
is the biggest crook i college. He would
be just as likely to 1 ke it as I.”
“Do you think Nick is a deserving
“Deserving of being hung. Nick is
perverted. I have signed statements
from members of the class to that ef
‘‘Have you a guilty conscience ”
“Not since my frrshaian year.”
“Are you acquainted with the com
“Yes, much to my sorrow.”
“Were you ever in the penitentiary?”
“Yes, two years ago.”
“How did you happen to get in?”
“Have you ever seen th0 cup?”
“Yes, in Nick’s budwor.”
“Where would you keep it?”
“In iny budwor, of course.”
“Did you ever notice that the coin
plnintaut was careless about leaving his
clothing lie around?”
“Yes, he came to physics class without
any vest on. Besides that, I know some
thing else about him. One of thegnrdi
ners said Nick was no good in the head
because he wanted to ask the board of
regents to let him work 10 hours instead
“But if you are seeking information. I
saw a'number 12 shoe print around
Nick’s room and a dark figure stealing
down the stairs with something under his
coat. Now, Dudley here wears a shoe
Dudley, upon being questioned admit
ted that he had seen prints of a boot,
size number 8 around the rocm. Mr.
Scaiefe wears a number eight. Dudley
claims he never desired to own the cup.
Scoop Ilathbun, who is implicated in the
matter says he held a committee meet
ing one dark night in the cemetery and
unanimously voted that he was the proper
man to own the cup. “The trouble is I
don’t know’ where to find it or I would
help myself,” he says. Kiddle also ad
mits that he had a consuming desire to
own the token and went there with the
other three to see it a n onth ago, but he
couldn't get it.
