Dormitory Burglar Goes on Trial; Four Students Will Testify Today

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Two men, identified as the burglars who last Spring mulcted student rooms of several thousand dollars, go on trial this morning at Cambridge Superior Court.

One of them, Joseph W. Duane, has already pleaded guilty in an examination at the District Attorney's office. He is expected to testify against James L. McLeod, who was arrested with him in New York City.

Four students--William C. Duval, III '53, William R. Lamb '53, John D. Rauh '54, and John J. Sack '51--are the other witnesses for the prosecution. Duval saw the burglars last May when they were casing Leverett House, and has already identified Duane and McLeod as the pair.

Lamb, Rauh, and Sack lost watches and a suitcase in the thefts, and will identify their property in court tomorrow. Duane reportedly told police that he had netted almost $20,000 from 117 burglaries in or near the College.
