Chore coat in off-white cotton twill with stenciled decoration.

1935’s design, drawn by James M. McKay, was a junk wagon pulled by an emaciated mule (with a Triangle Club collar) and driven by a drunken student (with a mortar board). The wagon is full of junk (bicker rules, a 7-0 defeat by Yale, a broken hockey stick, a Phi Beta Kappa key). The class’s numerals form the wheels.
