    NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

    On February 17 Mims obtained a leave of absence for the half year because of ill health. A few days later he closed his apartment and supposedly left Cambridge for Florida.

    Edwin Mims, Instructor and Tutor in Government, apparently attempted to commit suicide by jumping off the Week's Bridge into the Charles River last night.

    Herbert Driscoll and Thomas Wheelan apprehended Mims Whose hands were bound by his coat belt. They prevented his leap and called the Cambridge police who took the instructor to the Longwood Street psychopathic wards.
