After Meeting with Harvard Admin on ‘Swatting’ Attack, Black Student Leaders Say Demands Remain Unanswered
Bewildered by a loud crash overhead followed by the mound of running water, students taking examinations in Memorial Hall were diverted from their work yesterday morning.
The crash, a result of a large boulder falling from the top of the picturesque roof that covers the hall, barely stopped the undergraduates writing. However, if the large object had not lodged in two intervening beams after a fall of several feet, it very probably would have crashed through the thin second ceiling immediately sheltering the main room.
The damage which might have resulted from a drop through both partitions cannot be estimated. It was believed that it would have killed anyone struck. The running water probably was the result of broken pipes. Roofing experts were called immediately.
