} remedy this situation President
Lowell has proposed that Harvard's
athletic contests be reduced to a
single game in each major sport.
President Lowell has reason for
believing that intramural athletics
should be stressed, for the benefits
derived here extend to a much
larger group than those offered
the limited teams composed of out-
standing athletes in the various
sports. In the case of Michigan,
however, intramural sports would
amount to little or nothing were
it not for football, which has bui'lt
and supported one of the finest
athletic plants in thetcountry
through its profits.
It seems that President Lowell
hasgone to an unnecessarily dras-
tic extreme with his proposal prac-
tically to abolish all intercollegi-
ate athletics. His stand can no
more be condoned than can that
of the extemists who believe col-!
