Rumor Says Card Trophies Taken From B.A.C. To Be Returned Through Mail
No Word Is Received By Masters To Verify U.C. Rumours From Berkeley
California still "hates Stanford like hell," according to a telephone conversation received from the Daily Californian last night by the Stanford Daily.
The chief rumor afloat on the Berkeley campus is that the trophies taken from the Stanford B.A.C building the night of the axe theft have been mailed by unknown persons and will arrive on the Stanford campus some time today.
These are the two latest developments in the controversy between Stanford and California enthusiasts, resulting from Stanford's sensational capture of the axe last Thursday night.
No definite information concerning the stolen Stanford trophies has been given out by California officials, according to the report from the Berkeley paper last night. The rumor that the trophies have been mailed back to Stanford is widespread at California, but no verification of the story has been offered.
That the trophies have not as yet been located in the California campus was the story carried by the San Francisco Call Bulletin yesterday afternoon. According to this story, there is still a search for the stolen Stanford trophies in progress at Berkeley, with leaders of the Golden Bears urging that the university's reputation for sportsmanship rests on their recovery and return. It is also reported as rumored that the occasion of the California-Stanford disturbance was used by some neutral party to seize the trophies for their silver value.
Last night Stanford officials had received no word of the recovery of the trophies, nor of the rumored fact that they have been mailed from Berkeley. Alfred R. Masters, B.A.C. manager, Don Leibendorfer, publicity director, and Stanford Steinbeck, A.S.S.U. president were all ignorant last night of any Berkeley plan to return the trophies.
