President Jordan waited in vain last night for two policeman who accused a Radcliffe girl of stealing a five helmet. The officers appeared Monday night at Whitman clutching a picture of the Radcliffe Song Contest from the October 28 Boston "Globa".
Mrs. Katherine Mann, head resident of Whitman, refused to identify the wearer of the helmet which the police claimed had been stolen last week from the Cambridge fire department Promising to return at 6:30 last night, the policemen left.
When contacted, the Cambridge fire chief said. It's all news to me. We don't want the helmet unless it's a new one." The helmet in the Globe picture has belonged to Whitman in three years.
