Rivalry gets inappropriate

A PACK OF LYRES

Yale University's marching
band has been suspended because
of a prop used during the football
game between Yale and Harvard
University, the Yale Daily News
reported.
The prop, a wall, contained ele-
ments that Thomas Duffy, director
of Yale Bands, deemed "complete-
ly inappropriate and highly offen-
sive."
Drum major Rosa Li, a Univer-
sity senior, said in an e-mail to the
marching band that the wall prop
did contain "some genuinely inap-
propriate things on it (i.e. more
inappropriate than 'sucks') that I
would have made y'all paint over,
had I seen it."
