If you are accosted in your own room by a strange individual trying to sell you a magazine subscription, shoe him away and call a yard cop. He will tell you he is working his way through college, which is the truth. But he doesn't pay any tuition, gets through college in a week, and collects fabulous sums of money.
This is the warning handed down by James Stewart, Superintendent of Caretakers, as the result o a series of complaints against salesman. One of these periodical vendors talked an unsuspecting Yardling into getting a six-year subscription to three magazines.
Stewart emphasized the fact that these salesman are not allowed in the Yard without a permit, and all men trying to gold books and magazines are doing so against University regulations. He therefore requested that all students who come in contact with such men should inform their janitors or the Superintendent of Caretakers office.
