That a wave of crime, taking the form of a series of robberies, passed over the University at an early hour yesterday morning, was attested to by members of at least four college dormitories last night. According to the reports the wave seems to have centered at Westmorley Court, but the ripples were felt as far away as Perkins and Divinity Halls.
A considerable loot was taken by the perpetrator of the thefts in Westmorley. In one entry he aggregated about $100 in money and a gold watch. It is believed by the victims that the man entered the building between 3 and 4 o'clock, going through the rooms that were open and searching whatever clothing was left about.
The members of the yard police force have so far succeeded in finding no clues which may lead to the apprehension of the thief. The man in charge of each building protested, when questioned, that all seemed quiet about the dormitories during their time of duty.
