CRIMSON EXTRA SCOOPS STORY ON ELI SWIM; RUMORED FAKE

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The 2700 fans at the Yale-Harvard swimming meet Saturday night were pleasantly surprised, as they left Payne Whitney Gymnasium, to find a CRIMSON extra, carrying the complete story of the meet, being distributed free at the door.

"Crimson Swimmers Triumph," read the 72-point streamer headline on top of the front page, with the result that the staff of newsboys was quickly overburdened with the herculean task of distributing the issue as fast as there were requests for it. The extra contained a fairly thorough summary of the meet, including descriptions of outstanding performances and winners, and victory statements by Coach Hal Ulen and Captain Charlie Hutter.

Despite the fact that newsboys cried "hot off the press," vicious rumors were circulated to the effect that the extra was printed in Cambridge Saturday morning. CRIMSON editors could not be reached for comment on the charges.
