'Carmen' To Be Sung February 2 Scandal Rocks Yale University NEW HAVEN. Conn. (UPI> A 14-year-old girl and a telephone have put six Yale undergraduates in the position of being little black sheep who have gone astray. The 14 • year - old received a phone of her own for her birthday. One of the calls she made errantly connected her with a Yale dormitory. Neither party hung up. That mischance call has led to a scandal which has rocked Yale from Mory's restaurant to President A. Whitney Griswold's office. Six undergraduates have been charged with "lascivious carriage" in connection with two alleged incidents when the girl visited Calhoun College following the telephone call. Twelve others have resigned from the university and more arrests are expected. Detective Capt. William F. Hoi- oman. of the New Haven police, said the "alleged intimacies occurred at Calhoun College, but students from other colleges in the university were reported involved." The girl identified the undergraduates from their pictures in the Yale year book, Holohan said. One of the students charged was Stephen White. 19, of Paterson. N.J. His father, William B. White, principal of East Side High School in Paterson, said his son denied being involved in any incidents. White said his son told him he had seen the girl only once. The other five charged with lascivious carriage, which carries a maximum sentence of six months in jail and $100 fine, were: David B. Rollins. 20. and Peter |L. Gluck, 20, both of Scarsdale. N.Y.; Stephen L. Rose, 19, Highland Park. 111.: Jack F. Adler Jr.. 20. Elkins Park. Pa., and Donald B. Murphy, 19, Chappaqua, N.Y.

Don't send my daddy I and mom to jail. I will go to jail i for them." That was the slightly misspelled plea that a !*-year-old shut-in sent to President Eisenhower after the ! boy had caused his father to get a call from the Internal Revenue Service. The lad, a rheumatic fever victim who can be identified only as Jim, decided to change some of the numbers in his father's account books one day when he was bored. A revenue agent gently — but apparently quite impressively- admonished the youngster when the father's tax return did not jibe with the hooks. The lad wrote to Eisenhower: "Will you help me? I'm in a lot of trouble." He explained what he'd done and offered to go to jail for his parents. "I'll be old when I get out, and my dad and mom will be old to, but I'll never do anything like that again. Can I learn to be a doctor or syentist if I go to jail? I pray every night you will forgive me." The White House forwarded the letter to the IRS which assured Jim that neither he nor his parents would have to go to jail. Jones House Has Mystery BALTIMORE <UPI> - A radio repairman claims he has found a solution to the strange happenings in the home of the Edgar Jones family here. For the past week, things have been really jumping. It began when a shoe-shaped flower pot kicked out a window pane. Then, pieces of pottery, glasses and ash trays exploded on shelves and tables or crashed to the floor —for no apparent reason. A sugar bowl leaped four feet into the air. A brass incense burner made a six-foot flight from a bookshelf, and a can of soup hopped from a shelf. Thing* quieted down a day or so in the two-story, brick house occupied by Jones, a returned fireman, and his wife and daughter. Then things started hopping again, and Stanley P. Greenfield, the radio repairman, investigated and came up with a more plausible solution than the poltergeist theory. The "ghost," Greenfield says, is a big storm drain that runs behind the Jones home. The pipe, he explains, acts as a big musical instrument, now and then hitting notes that create vibrations, arid things start flying. Jones' daughter. Mrs. Theodore Pauls, says the family dog seems to understand the strange happenings and daws at the objects just prior to their mysterious doings. In a home where everything else seems to be happening, the dog just won't talk.
