A detailed study of the temperature dependence of Young's modulus E(T) and internal friction Q-1(T) has been made for various purity single crystals and polycrystalline samples of yttrium. Measurements have been carried out in the temperature range 4.2-400 K at frequencies $f\sim 1$ kHz. It was found that $E_{\rm bp}=134$ GPa and $E_{\rm c}=51$ GPa at T=4.2 K in the basal plane and along the c-axis, respectively. It was established that the E(T) curves for single crystals have a Debye-like shape in the temperature interval 4.2-320 K (the Debye temperature $\Theta_{\rm D}=135$ K and $\Theta_{\rm D}=98$ K in the case of basal plane and the c-axis, respectively. Q-1(T) at a temperature near 400 K displays maxima connected with relaxation processes of defects and dislocations in the samples.
