Cannon Returned

Last week students from MIT stole the cannon from Fleming House at Caltech. Definding their honor, Flems took it back.

To MIT,

Congratulations. You managed to move a three-ton cannon across the country without anyone knowing where it went. Although we applaud your prank, we would prefer to have the cannon back in Pasadena. It is on its way home now, but we have left you with a small gift -- a token of remembrance.

We enjoyed our trip and the chance to defend our honor. Organizing ourselves in under a day, we deployed twenty-three Flems from home and seven alumni from the area. We came together to protect the pride of both our Hovse and Caltech.

This time, only Fleming Hovse had the pleasure of visiting your fine institution. But do not worry, all of Caltech will be back, and next time it will be a surprise.

Sincere regards,

Fleming Hovse
