CALIFORNIAN'S TRUNK NONE TOO SWIFT IN PASSAGE HOME

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

If you live in the West (west of Buffalo), take need.

When Caspar W. Weinberger '38 left Dunster House to depart for his home in San Francisco, California, last spring, he was in such a hurry that he left his trunk to be shipped by another.

Weinberger's trunk fell into the hands of a man who dislikes railways but likes boats. He placed the trunk on a freight steamer bound for Frisco through the Canal.

Exactly 45 days, seven hours, and 31 minutes elapsed before the boat put into Frisco Bay. There at the dock was Weinberger, cheering it in, with scarcely time to repack his trunk and ship it back, since he is returning to the Law School.

On the dock was an amiable picket. "Service certainly is faster than it used to be, ain't it, chum?" asked the picket.

"Yeah," said Weinberger.
