"Every economy consistent with
safety and convenience" was advo-
cated in connection with the buildin
of the new stadiun. No attempt, should
be made to give it the form of a
monu'mnent . or memorial. While at-
tractiveness of appearance should not
be entirely neglected, the total inyest
ment in the structure should be kept
as low as possible, the delign repro-
senting the utmost simplicity.
The increased revenue resulting
from the enlarged capacity of the sta-
dium would increase the fund from
which the financial support for other
athletic activities may be drawn. Cer-
tain intercollegiate sports which can
never be made to pay their own way
have always drawn heavily on foot-
ball, and, intramural sports have also
been aided in considerbale measure
by the department of intercollegiate
athletics. Intramural sports, the re -
port declares, are just as deserving o.
support as intercollegiate, and have
just as legitimate claim on the 'reve*
nue from intercollegiate contests. Tho
increase in revenue should make pos-
sible the desired expansion of the
"athletics-for-all" program.
However, reorganization of th
means of control of athletics Was
thought by the committee to be more
important than the development of
any particular element of physical
education or intramural sports, and
that the control of athletics should ie
made subordinate to the control of
education. To accomplish this pur-,
pose, all parts of the athletic program
should be brought under unified con-
trol and the President and faculty
should be given a prevailing voice. To
accomplish this, the report recom-
mends a change in the composition of
the Board in Control of Athletics
through the inclusion of five addition-
al members-one to be an ex-officio
member (to be the director of the
University division of hygiene and'
public health) and the other four to
be representative of the University
Senate, appointed by the President.
This will bring the total membership
on the Board to 16. It is believed
that this reorganization will place th&
development of athletic policy defi-
nitely and squarely in the hands of
those charged with the development of
the University's more general educa-
tional policy.
In the opinion of the committee, the
present system is not so seriously de-
fective at any one point as it is es-
sentially out of balance. As matters
Anow stand, intercollegiate athletics
may be said to exist "in excess."
The committee which drew up and
presented the report last night was
appointed in response to a resolution
adopted by the Senate council on May
11, 1925. Acting under this resolu-
tion, Acting President Alfred Lloyo
appointed Dean Edmund E. Day of the
School of Business Administration;
chairman; Prof. Ralph W. Aigler of
the Law school; Prof. Arthur E. Boak
of the history department; Joseph A.
Bursley, Dean of Students; and Prof.
Alfred H. Lovell of the engineering
Trade and industry, according to
Bradstreet's, show considerable de-

all distributive lines: retailers' stocks
are low, and most jobbers expect to do
a good business. The Shoe Style show
at St. bouis is attracting buyers from
all parts of the country; and the Na-
tional Automobile show at New York,
with announced price cuts from some
manufacturers and rumors of others
to come, is also making claims on
public interest.
