University Hall Awaits Bill From City As Cops Go to Get Money's Worth

Riot Students May Retaliate by Charging Town for Fees of Doctors, Cleaners

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

"We have received no bill yet," was the only authoritative statement which came from University Hall yesterday in connection with the bill which the Cambridge City Council voted to send the University for "damages done to city property" during the fracas Monday night.

A committee was named to investigate and assess the value of such property as was damaged. Several men were seen carefully inspecting the lamp posts to see if any paint had been scratched off. They finally gave up and searched for damage to the grass on Cambridge Common from foot prints. The only prints that were heavy enough to be identified were those of horses and City police officers.

As a last resort it is expected that they will file claims for the cost of gasoline for the squad cars, for one gross of tear gas bombs, one book entitled "How to Break Up a Riot," and two broken policemen's clubs.

Nothing could be learned by last night as to whether a group of Undergraduates, who wish to withhold their names until after election, are going through with their plan of sending a bill to the city for "Damages, both Physicalle and Mentalle, incurred by ye Cambridge Municipal Officers, while attemptinge to dispersse a gathering of Students."

This would include doctors' bills for removing tear gas from eyes, cleaners' bills for removing it from clothes, and $10,00 accountant's fee.
