Bicycle Thief Goes Straight; Pays Nickel to Square Debt

David R. Jackson '54 of Winthrop House had his bike stolen and returned within the space of six hours Monday night and made a nickel profit in the process.

Jackson noticed his bike missing from the rack outside the House Superintendent's office at 5:30 Monday but found it returned to its original place a little after 11 p.m. Attached to it was the following note: "Sorry I stole your bike. I broke a pin in the foot pedal. There is, I think, enough money in the basket to cover the damage."

Twenty-five cents was found in the basket, exactly five cents more than the cost of repairs.
