To the Editor of the Daily:
The qucstion of extravagance of the
Athletic Board rests entirely on the
official report published in Tuesday's
Daily, wvhich stated that $1,500 was
paid for repairs to toe graid-stand and
erection of bleachers. If this was cor-
rect the board has been very extrava-
gant in the matter.
In the past it has not been supposed
that a s-ledule for eithor baseball or
football was formed with the intention
of canceling the games. It is true that
it might rain on a Saturday, but the
games would then even probably be
only postponed. Not a home game was
canceled in either last year's baseball
or this year's football schedule. But,
even allowing it should be there is no
reason why a ticket for the extra game
should not be given to the purchaser
of the season ticket aioy more than it
would be allowable for the S. L. A. to
sell a course ticket admitting to all but
the leading attraction of the course,
under the idea that the prominent
speaker may be sick and not come.
Taking the reasoning of the intelligent
"Board Member," however, the ex-
pense to the citizen who does not pay
to see the canceled game would be the
same to the student.
Again, it is claimed that a student
should pick out the poorest game and
lse his ticket on the other six. This is
what some do, and yet complaint is
made of the poor support of the team
at the minor games.
If the "Board Member" had been
present, at the Notre Dame game (the
sixth of the series) and seen the ground
around the ticket office, covered with
punched tickets, and heard the forcible'
expressions of the ticket holders as
they realized that an additional 50
cents was necessary to see the game
with Ohio State, the best in the series,
his faith in the system might have
been shaken. Such a result as this is
certainly a great encouragement to
the students to buy a ticket next sea-
