To the Editors of the CRIMSON:
. . . I want to tell any reader who cried because he had no tickets to Saturday's Harvard-Yale game, what happened to a young man and young lady who did have tickets.
In the first scene they were arrested by two state troopers at Wellesley on Route 9, coming from Framingham. The young couple imploringly explained they were in a hurry to get to the game and as they were already about 30 minutes late, 65 m.p.h. seemed justified, even if the signs did say 40 was the limit. The troopers were quite friendly, sympathetic, and completely unmoved.
Scene II found the couple listening to the last half of the game at the Wellesley police headquarters waiting hopefully for a bail clerk to appear any minute, but the d---bail clerk didn't arrive until 5:30 p.m. By about 3:30 a very glum couple tried to auction off the two Harvard-Yale tickets to some very non-interested Wellesley policemen. Part of the idea was to raise bail money.
The last scene proved the whole thing was something of a tragi-comedy in the eyes of the law. At about 10 a.m. Monday morning in Dedham district court a still-sad Harvard speedster stood before the judge who understandingly, with big unconcealed smile and laughter, agreed that penalty enough had already been paid and the case should be filed without fine. . . . Sect. 47, Row MM, Seats 22 and 23.
