Skip Stahley Fells Burglar With His Powerhouse Punch

Prowler Knocked Out by Freshman Football Coach

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

A Somerville second story man committed the gravest blunder of his career the other night when he entered the apartment house in which Skip Stahley, Freshman football coach lives and was knocked cold by a single punch. He was revived some hours later in a Somerville police cell.

At two o'clock in the morning the prowler. Alfred T. Varney, was halfway through the window of a second story apartment when the occupant, a woman, saw him and started screaming. Stahley and a couple of companions heard him and stepped out to meet him.

He immediately fell to the ground and resigned himself to slumber.
