MEMO TO FILE: Harry Hazelwood Jr. '43

Harry called this morning to say that he has a freshman son at Livingston who was involved in some "horseplay" and received a summons signed by a detective of Campus Patrol.

His son is charged with two counts: (1) atrocious assault; and (2) larceny. He said that his son is a co-defendant with a Rutgers College student who committed an assault upon another student by hitting the student on the arm with a paddle and taking a bag of pretzels from the student. Harry was upset that "for a 49c bag of pretzels, someone would file a larceny charge."

He said he had talked earlier with a Captain in Campus Patrol who said that the summons was returnable in Piscataway Magistrate's Court. Harry (who has been sitting as a judge in Essex County for a number of years) says he handles four hundred of these a week and does not need to be told what is involved.

He said until recently he was a trustee of Cornell through his Law School attendance and that "Pranks such as this were handled up there by the Deans." He wanted to know who was in charge of the Campus Patrol, and I told him that Robert Ochs, Assistant Vice President of Public Safety, had the Campus Patrol in his department. He thanked me and said he would call Ochs.
