Athletes Support Most of Council views on Sports


Athletes yesterday reacted favorably to the report of the Student Council's committee on athletics. Most agreed with varsity basketball and tennis player Gerald D. Murphy '52 that the "committee's suggestions are a step in the right direction."

One prominent football player of last fall who refused to be quoted disagreed with most of the Committee's findings. He does not feel, as the report indicated, that coaching here is too "impersonal and inadequate." In reply to the committee's statement that players resent "the indifference of the student body" he said, "Last fall I think we got the support we deserved."

This dissenter agreed along with basketball player and tennis captain Bob Bramball '49 that the suggested centralization of scholarship and admissions offices is a good thing. "We needed this over before the athletic program came up," Bramball said.

Other athletes were divided as to the harms of "segregating" athletes in the Varsity Club and Boat House. The anonymous senior called this segregation "very bad," but a junior on the football team said he would rather live in the Club next year than in his House.
