Elimination of Minor Sports Protested in Yard Petition

Freshmen Will Have General Levy on All Students for Their Support

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Once again the Freshmen are circulating a petition criticizing the policy of the University. The latest move is headed by William T. Glendenning '38, a member of the Freshman wrestling team, who hopes to get 1000 signatures protesting against the removal of official support of minor sports.

Glendenning asserted last night that several prominent athletes would sign the paper, but he did not divulge their names or the names of his assistants. Included in the petition will be suggestions as to how the sports could be financed. The document is still in an incomplete form, but it is understood that it will suggest a general levy on all students for their support.

The paper will be posted on the bulletin boards of the dormitories and in the Union and will be circulated by interested upperclassmen. The Minor Sports Council announced that it strongly favored the endowment of athletics and realized the necessity of eliminating the official support of the H.A.A. until the fund increases enough to justify changes.
