The Crime


Charles N. Pollak, II, of Westmoor Farm, did not, as was reported in last week's issue of the Mirror, fall into the Harvard swimming pool and spoil a record attempt by Harvard's swimming team. It has been revealed that at the time of the alleged incident Pollak was in New York City for the week-end

Pollak, in a letter to the Mirror, declares that he was particularly anxious to correct that part of the fake story which said "he had to be fished out of the pool," since he learned to swim at Nantucket,"... and I hate to think of losing this skill, even in a cooked-up news item..."
