April 23, 1985: A student claims to have been raped at Smith College, Massachusetts. Would you believe it is a liberal arts college? This probably explains the subsequent anti-rape demonstration. The following month it is announced that Little Miss Anonymous has withdrawn her complaint and left. She probably belongs in a booby hatch rather than an institution of higher learning. This report appeared in the Boca Raton News, May 5, 1985, page 16A. It alludes too to two other reported rapes at Mount Holyoke College; one of these rape allegations, apparently against a named or at least known individual, had since been withdrawn. Two false claims out of three sounds about right.
