lieu'thought was sure to come about,
though possibly not in ! the twentieth
century, three nations, he said, would
not be included: England, because it
would combine instead with the United
States; -Russia, because It-would form
a- great independent nation by itself,
and Turkey, because Jt would be ab

possessions was made by the university
authorities and revealed that he has
stolen constantly just for the love- of
stealing. He never attempted .to sell

mor.ey from his family in- San Diego,
Cal., and had no necessity for stealing
for gain, lie is the only son of a wid
owed mother, who win 'very poor
health, and these reasons are assigned
for the lenient action taken by univer-
Bity authoritiec. •

Hall was opened students who live
there have been pestered by thievery,
and although detectives we're employed
lo catch the thief he # had never been
apprehended.
Rosencranz had lived In the hall for
two years and it is now believed that
many of the robberies might.be traced
to him. He was caught stealing books
by a fellow member of the ,hall. He
entered the room of this member, tak
ing $14 worth of books. "When accused
of the theft Rosencranz at first denied
it, but later he broke down and con
fessed his guilt.
