A Uniform Athletic Tax.
It is safe to say that if the Regents
would determine the fate of the pro-
posed uniform Athletic Association as-
sessment by campus referendum the
plan would be adopted. It is equally
safe to say that the scheme would meet
with the same success that it has al-
ready won in a number of eastern uni-
versities. It is quite possible that the
authorities do not now realize that
student authorities do not realize that
by t'he present plan, in accordance
with which a high price is placed upon
tickets of admission, many members
of the student body are actually pre-
vented from attending the games be-
cause of their inability to meet the
charges. Attendance upon every ath-
letic contest throughout a single year
here at Michigan would involve a cost
of not less than $30. This sum of
money is a serious matter for a large
proportion of students. A plan which
would require a reasonable, uniform
athletic tax and entitle members of the
faculty and students to admission to all
games would contribute largely to a
stronger and higher institutional spir-
it and at the same time be of financial
advantage to those who need help. If,
for example, a five dollar fee were
charged, it would ensure the associa-
tion an annual revenue of twenty-five
thousand dollars besides the receipts
for reserved seats at the big football
games and the usual receipts from the
general public. And it may fairly be
questioned whether under the man-
agement thus secured a larger sum
would be called for.
Under our present system, athletics
are, by ne essity, run with an eye to
the profits; and, if this were not so
admission to athletic contests would be
reduced to a more reasonable price.
On the other hand, the academic ma-
chinery is conducted for the benefit of
the student first of all; and the collego
expects to give him more than he pays
back to its treasurer. If tuition, fees
were raised to scale with the price of
tickets to our "intersectional contests"
we should hear no more wails of aca-
demic defects. And, if, on the other
hand, athletic charges were reduced
to a plane with academic fees we
should immediately see why in the
past we have occasionally shown "lack
of college spirit."
