All threatened minor sports will be continued through 1936-37, according to a decision reached this week between William J. Bingham '16, director of Athletics, and John L. Lowes, financial vice-president.
Regular Teams, Coaches
This means that cross country, wrestling, fencing, boxing, lacrosse, and soccer will have regular teams during the coming year, will be supplied with equipment, coaches, athletic facilities.
The only curtailment found necessary was a slight reduction of intercollegiate schedules, with games outside of New England being called off in most cases.
Mr. Bingham has been working over figures for the past three months in an effort to cut expenses. He was able to show Mr. Lowes that he could run the entire H.A.A. on the present income and still keep all the sports.
Present coaching staffs will be maintained by shifting duties around, latting minor sport coaches help with major sport teams. A large saving was made by not appointing a new assistant athletic director; other minor expense cuts have been made.
No committment is made for the following year, however, so 1937 may see a renewed discussion of the question. Under the present system Mr. Conant's athletic endowment policy is being continued as originally planned.
