An all points bulletin has been issued for the Harvard Band's seven-foot tall drum which was reported stolen from the band room yesterday. It is suspected that the burglary is a Yale prank, a Harvard University Police Department officer said yesterday.
The drum, valued at $6000, and a large banner were the only items reported missing.
"This was a professional burglary. The thieves smashed a window, tore the screen, broke into a padlocked room, and tore the drum from the three-inch thick chain that bolted it to the floor," Roy McDonald '77, band manager, said yesterday.
