Yale's crew may be ahead of Harvard on the training timetable, but it's going to have to mark time--for awhile, anyway. The Yalies have lost their pants.
The sad denudement occurred last week when a hundred pairs of rowing trunks and sweat shirts burned in a fire at the Bob Cook boathouse in Derby, Connecticut.
Until replacement of the destroyed pants can be made, the embarrassed Eils may have to row a modest distance from all inhabited shorelines.
Divester of the Blue oarsmen was a $600 blaze started by a defective gas heater which was used to operate the drying apparatue.
