Gideon Belleveau of Lewiston was a scared young man Tuesday evening. As far as can be learned, certain men in Lewiston connected with the rum business ‘tis said, claim that he has been putting the liquor deputies “wise” to their movements. The raid at Nadeau’s place early Tuesday morning was laid to him.

In the evening, it is understood, Pay Doyle was on the lookout for him and after calling at his house and not finding him, came across Belleveau later on Lower Lisbon street. Belleveau says that Doyle assaulted him. Belleveau ran, chased by a number of men. He finally reached home.

Belleveau was advised to swear out a warrant for the arrest of Doyle but has not done so as yet.

The tuition rate will be increased $10, making a total of $300 a semester, and the board and room charges will be raised $25 to $300 a semester.

“In our efforts to keep the cost of education at Bates College as low as possible, the college’s board and room rate has not been increased during the past 3 1/2 years,” said Dr. Phillips.

“Since then, of course, we have been faced with a substantial increase in operating cost. Next fall we cannot continue to ignore the rise in cost. Next fall we cannot continue to ignore the rise in cost so that a 9% increase in our board and room charge will be necessary. At the same time out tuition rate will also be advanced slightly.”
