SWEEPSTAKES MONEY HERE IS LIMITED TO $500 SPLIT BY FIVE

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Lady Luck, the Federal income tax, and the Irish Hospitals Sweepstakes did not combine in astronomical figures for any member of the University who was doing his bit for charity, but five persons under the name of "The Harvard Syndicate" are each $100 richer today.

The syndicate received a $500 consolation prize for its efforts and upon investigation it was learned that even this comparatively paltry sum had to be divided. The only name that could be learned yesterday was that of William Melvin, an employee of the Law School in the mimeographing department, whose address at 93 Kirkland Street was given as that of the syndicate.

Melvin did not return to work after lunch yesterday and could not be reached for comment.
