A. STATISTICS ON
In a recent bulletin
published and edited by Fred Turbyville under the heading of Intramural
Athletics, a supplement to The Blue Booh of College Athletics for
1932-1933, the following figures are given in regard to the number of
students that take part in different intramural sports. The data were
supplied by two hundred fifty-five colleges, and clearly show that
basketball is far in the lead in popularity as an intramural sport.
Not only in the number of players
participating does basketball lead, but also in the number of
institutions that include this sport on their intramural program. There
are 241 schools in which basketball is played in intramurals, whereas
the next sport, track, is included in 206 schools.
