Bpeclal Dispatch to The Star.
BALTIMORE, April s— Robert Ayers,
University of Maryland employe, was
presented by the grand jury yesterday
on a charge of larceny of $5,867.40 from

total amount of shortage as determined
by the State auditor.

February 17, police made an investiga
tion, which led to the conclusion that
it had been committed by some one who
knew the combination of the safe.
