Loud fanfare which accompanied the birth of the M.I.T. scheme to change the name of Harvard Bridge into something more technical, seems to have died down to a mere laboratory whisper, editors of the student newspaper, "The Tech", revleaded yesterday.
Not that they had run out of ideas; nothing so untechnical as that. The fact is that some students--and any Technite will swear they were from Harvard--took advantage of the uproar to perpetrate a nefarious crime, namely the theft of a plate from the bridge which bears the solemn designation "Harvard Bridge.
Until it is returned, Technology students are faced with the threat of a police investigation. Apparently they would rather let the bridge keep its present name than draw the eye of Mickey Sullivan's gendarmerie upon their machinations through any new publicity stunts.
