Students Decide To Abandon All
Co petition In M. I. A., A.
During 'Coming Spring'
(By Associated Press)
ALMA, March 13.-Lack of fi-
nancial support was given as the
reason for a decision by the stu-
dent body of Alma college, to
withdraw from all athletic compe-
tition in the' M. I. A. A. this spring.
The 'decision was reached yesterday
when students voted to abolish all
forms 'of intercollegiate sport.
Football and basketball have pro-
duced small profits, but track, ten-
nis and baseball consumea more
money than was taken ii.
