HAA Won't Trim Sports Like Yale

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Yale's immediate athletic "belt-tightening" policy will not be copied here, it was learned yesterday.

There is reason to believe that a war crisis similar to that of 1942 would produce the same results again--reduced enrollment and athletic financial curtailment. But Carroll F. Getchell, H.A.A. business manager, said that no curtailment for this spring or next fall has yet been requested. He added that the Athletic Association is still operating on a peacetime status quo.

Yale Athletic Director Robert Hall announced this week his intention to trim the estimated annual $700,000 athletic budget in order to balance prospects of a reduced enrollment and "a probable sports deficit for the 1950-51 campaign."

He added that Yale has no intention at this time of eliminating any of its 17 intercollegiate sports or its intramural program. During the last war Yale cut to four major sports--football, baseball, swimming, and basketball--and also reduced road trips.
