FIRE, FIRE, FALSE ALARM IS CRY AT DUSK NEAR LANGDELL

Alarums and an excursion of hook-and-ladder details lifted from their desks several hundred inmates of the Harvard Inns of Court early yesterday evening when a holocaust was reported in the new Langdell Hall addition. The firemen, upon forcing an entrance to the rooms under construction, discovered pots of fire suspended from the ceiling under a newly applied surface of plaster.

Inquiry established the fact that the flaming kettles belonged where they were and in fact were necessary to dry out plaster in cold weather. The alarm was attributed to a passing law student who caught sight of flames in the supposedly deserted addition.
