Unusual requests are frequent occurrences in the life of a newspaper, but last night a Harvard man of '28 came through with the month's tops. He wanted clippings of every item containing the result of a Harvard-Yale encounter in which his Alma Mater came out victorious. "Anything will do," he asserted, "from football games to chess clashes."
It turned out that the man of '28 is an enterprising gambler. He bet a Yale boy $5 on every single event between John H. and Eli Y. To collect, clippings must be produced. Things were going along about even until the other night he chanced to run into his enemy's wife at dinner. She proceeded to produce six items telling the sad tale of six recent Harvard defeats in various forms of competition.
He's on the warpath now; he wants his $30 back.
