After a chase from the Indoor Athletic Building to the intersection of Mt. Auburn and De Wolf Streets Friday afternoon, a posse of 50 irate upperclassmen finally captured and turned over to the police a man who had taken a wallet containing $63 from the locker of Rene Peroy, fencing coach.
As he came out of his shower, dripping wet, Peroy noticed the culprit running out of the room. Without waiting to dress he gave chase through the corridors of the Indoor Athletic Building and shouting for aid succeeded in getting nearby students to continue the pursuit. An officer finally caught up with the crowd of pursuers just in time to arrest the culprit after he had led them a merry chase down Mt. Auburn Street.
Athletic Association officials hope that his arrest will put an end to the epidemic of robberies that has lately plagued the Indoor Athletic Building.
