investigation of evils and advantages
of intercollegiate athletics, met and
adjourned at the end of another two
hour session in which time Registrar

that athletes do not concentrate on any
one subject or group of subjects, but
seem to be receiving a thorough uni
versity education in courses which re
quire more than the average prepara
