Canadians Lose Clothes

Southampton, England, Jan. 1 -- (Reuters) -- Detectives boarded the liner Queen Mary when she docked here from New York today to investigate the loss of five fur-lined mackintoshes belonging to members of the Canadian skiing team, who are on their way to Switzerland. The Mackintoshes were missed during the voyage but they possibly were stolen before the Queen Mary left New York.
