ANNUAL REPORT DETAILS WORK
FOR PAST YEAR OF
The following report made by the
Athletic association to the Board of
Regents explains the financial condi-
tion of the association, the reasons
for entering the Coifference, and the
arguments'for the maintenance of in-
tercollegiate athletics during the war:
Pursuant to the resolution of the
Board of Regents of December, 1907,
the board in control of athletics pre-
sents herewith its report for the year
July 1, 1916, to June 30, 1917, in-
clusive. In view of the fact that this
annual report is regularly to be pre-
sented to the senate at its second reg-
ular meeting, held usually sometime
in January, it has seemed desirable
to report on activities of the athletic
department up to date of rendition.
The statistical part of the report, how-
ever,. except so far as it may be cov-
ered in the supplement hereto, must
be limited to the fiscal year.
During the year the membership of
the board in control, of athletics has
been made up of the following: Pro-
fessors R. Peterson, L. M. Gram, W. T.
Fishleigh and R. W. Aigler, represent-
ing the senate of the University; John
D. Hibbard, Chicago; James 0. Mur-
fin, Detroit; and James E. Duffy, Bay
City, representing the alumni; W.
Brodhead, Detroit; J. W. Thomas, De-
troit; and A. E. Stoll, Kansas City,
Mo., representing the students; and
P. G. Bartelme, director of outdoor

***General disbursements include pay-
ment on notes outstanding.
On July 1, 1916, the indebtedness
of the association represented by notes
held by Ann Arbor banks was $35,000.
On the corresponding date, 1917, this
indebtedness had been cut to $16,500.
At the present time all outstanding
notes have ben paid and there is a
small balance on hand. Almost all of
the income for the year is now in the
student fees and the receipts from
football games. The basketball, track,
and baseball seasons are bound to re-
sult, as in the past years, in deficits.
In addition to these there are also thc,
general expenses to be taken care of.
Beginning with the fall of 1917 big
cuts were made in expenditures. Elim-
ination of the training table and the
cutting down in pre-season football
training resulted in a saving of over
$2,000. Fewer football coaches were
used, resulting also in a considerable
saving. Fewer men have been taken,
on trips and departures for out of
town games have been delayed.
Offsetting in a measure these econo-
mies, not, however, in any sense as an
extravagance, was the contribution of
$1,500 to the support of the University's
portion of the expense of carrying on
