cars for the proposed service, and the
item of track and wiring would, at a
large estimate, come well under $2,000.
During the past year there have been
some 30 events at Regents Field, which
were attended by 9,000 people. (I get
these figures from managers.) There
seems to be no question that quick and
convenient service would largely ir-
crease these totals. If we suppose only
Fifty per cent of those who attend the
games rode it would tax the present
car capacity of the comany to its ut-
most and could hardly fal to make in'
the course of the year from 25 to 50 per
cent for them on their increased invest-
ment after deducting all expenses.
One or two other points, though the
subject is by no means exhausted, and I
am done. In many places, notably at
Cornell, where the athletic field bears
the same relative position to the Uni-
versity as here, members of teams,
managers, &c., are sold books of 100
tickets for $3.00, and the simple going
to and from practice fills many cars a
day. There seems to be no reason why
several practice cars should not be run
every day even when there is no game
for the convenience o many men, both
those who practice and those who look
on.
In addition to this, I am informed
it is only a question of time when the
Athletic Association tennis courts, now
inadequate to supply the demand, will.
be replaced or supplemented by a num-
ber of courts at the field. And further,
if, as is expected, the new communica-
tion with Detroit will bring alumni
ad others here for the big games, there
will be additional reason for better
facilities.
I offer, therefore, these scattred sug-

gestions in the hope they may lead to
some more definite plan and concerted
action by street railway company and
g students alike for the improvement of
an existing state of affairs and for
. mutual advantage, financial and ath-
letic. WILBUR C. ABBOTT.
Interclass Championship.
The final inter-class game will be
played this afternoon at 4:10 p. to. at
o the athletic grounds between the '99
. and '01 lit teams. Both teams are put-
'ting up the best article of ball and a
good game is assured. The admission
has been reduced to 15 cents and a large
crowd should be present to see the
0 championship struggle settled.
