Missing in actional
If you were waiting to read
The Pendulum last Friday, you
probably had to wait a lot longer
than usual. Thursday, Oct. 3,
almost 2,600 papers were stolen
from distribution racks.
There has been speculation as
to why they were stolen.
However, no one really knows
where they are or why they were
taken. According to Dean of
Student Affairs Ron Klepcyk, "It’s
a continuing investigation and the
papers have not been found."
Murray Glenn, the managing
editor of The Pendulum was with
one of the distributors before the
theft occurred. Glenn said that
2,600 papers are usually delivered
to the different racks; 1,300 to
Long Student Center and 1,300 to
the Fine Arts Center.
Glenn and the distributor said
that they spotted someone near the
Long Student Center distribution
rack around 4:30 p.m. They
continued to organize the papers
despite the fact that a guy was
standing there watching them.
