HAZERS BREAK HIS WRIST.
William Searight, Central High Freshman, Refuses to "Peach."
While conducting a hazing bee, several pupils of the Central High School broke William Searight's wrist. Searight, a freshman, who lives at 1737 De Sales street northwest, loyally refuses to "peach" on his tormentors, but Principal Emory Wilson is investigating the affair and expects the names of the guilty ones to-day. He had a talk yesterday with Supt. Chancellor about it and will make a report this afternoon.
The "code of honor" which prevails at Central has been invoked by the boys, and the principal is finding it difficult to get at the facts.
According to the physician it will be several weeks before young Searight will be able to use his wrist. (Washington Post -- Oct. 1, 1907)
