Two more cases of sneak thieves entering students' rooms have recently occurred. Fortunately they were detected before opportunity had been offered to exercise their trade, and in one case they received a necessary reproof. It is said that two or three such characters have been seen in the neighborhood of the buildings, and it is proper that students should be on their guard.
Such occurrences can hardly be prevented but by careful use of lock and key. The College does what is necessary in providing strong doors and locks; it is for us to put them to the proper use. Unfortunately these are not isolated cases, but last year there were several serious losses through the same negligence. We cannot be too careful in excluding pocos, pedlers, and all of that guild from our Yard.
