RESEARCH SHOWS ROOSEVELT VASSAR NABOB, GOOSE KILLER

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Diligent research unearthed the answer to the many requests from the west coast for the name of a former editor of the CRIMSON who became trustee of Vassar College and who was arrested in Germany for running over a goose.

Franklin D. Roosevelt '04 turned out to be the ex-editor who fits the qualifications. During his youth he cycled through Germany and was apprehended by the authorities for depleting its goose population by one. He fulfills the other qualification by being a trustee at the Poughkeepsie girl's college, Vassar.

The barrage of requests was occasioned by a tie in a "you-name-it" contest in the northern part of California. Although the purpose of this question was to break the tie, bashful letter writers claimed other reasons. One said the answer would help him pursue his hobby, which he refused to name another claimed it would settle an argument between a "bunch of us old grads," and still another asserted he was working on a research project.
