To the Editors of the CRIMSON:

A youth who gave the name of Robert McGinnis, is circulating through Cambridge, taking subscriptions for periodicals in order (as he asserts), to help him in a "Yale scholarship contest." He gave as a reference "Captain Sullivan of the second precinct," but there is no Captain Sullivan in the second precinct or any other precinct of Cambridge. He also asserted that he came from the Georgetown Preparatory School, but the authorities of that school report that they have never had any such student. One "R.M. Green," whose personal appearance strikingly resembles that of Bob McGinnis, has recently been operating in Northampton, setting himself forth as a Harvard student. Very truly yours,   ALBERT BUSHNELL HART.
