Inflation seems to have hit the student pocketbook and the demand deposits of the Boston Elevated Railway simultaneously yesterday. Parsimony and scrupulous honesty have tangled and honesty probably will prove to be the bet policy for those who try to take the girl friend to Boston for a dime by way of the tandem turnstile at the Hayes-Bickford subway entrance.
Within the usually empty corridors of this backdoor entrance favored by impecunious undergraduates, the authorities have stationed a little man with a notebook and no sense of humor. When asked about this novel practice the Elevated people said that any difficulties would be "settled between the student and the College." It is doubtful whether University Hall smiles on this fire sale saving any more than the Cambridge police.
