Thief Gives Iowa College $500, Seeks Forgiveness

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- An anonymous letter with $500 and a plea for forgiveness sheds some light on a long-forgotten crime at an Iowa Catholic college.

The writer admitted stealing a portable radio from a teacher's lounge at Clarke College in Dubuque in 1955. The writer tried to make amends by slipping five $100 bills into the mailing sent last week to college president Sister Joanne Burrows.

It seeks forgiveness, saying the money was to be used by current faculty.
