Rowdy Yale Students at a Fire.

Rowdy Yale Students at a Fire.

William A. Goebel and Graham Foster, Yale football guards, Foster being also the college heavyweight wrestling champion, were fined the other day $35 and $15 and ordered to pay the costs of the trial, amounting to over $100 apiece, in the police court, when they were found guilty of breach of the peace and resisting a police officer. The testimony showed that a large body of Yale students broke through the lines at the recent Flower fire and forced back the police till they used their clubs freely. Foster’s nose was broken in two places and Goebel’s head was covered with gashes and cuts. In the argument of Seymour Loomis, attorney for Goebel and Foster, stress was laid on the fact that they were Yale students. “I don’t care whether they arc Yale students or hod carriers (said Judge Tyner). If they interfered with the police and were disorderly, they must pay the price. We’re all Yale men in this court; hut we don’t stand for Yale disorder.” Dean Rogers and Prof. Wurts of the Yale Law school have denounced the clubbing of the men. Thomas Van Alstyne, son of a former mayor of Albany, N. Y., lies in the Yale infirmary suffering from a blood clot on the brain due to police clubbing.
