With increasing fear that Yale has taken revenge for the theft of Handsome Dan, II, which occurred last year, the University Band is now making efforts to locate its big drum which has been missing since last Saturday afternoon. The two custodians of the drum are divided in their opinions of its location, one being sure that it must be safe in the South Station, the other, remembering threats by Yale men, feels that a thorough search of the Yale campus might be effective in locating the instrument.
Riding on a special box-car which had to be obtained so that the drum could be inserted at all, the instrument arrived in New Haven Saturday morning. After the game the drum was locked up at the field-house, but when the man who was to get the instrument called for it, he was unable to find it. If the drum is not found in the South Station, the scene of operations will be shifted to New Haven, and the search will continue until the drum is found.
