Some tlme ngo the direetors voted to stand behlnd tho Y. M. C. A. team, nnd the questlon wlth them was w'nether lt would be advlsable to glve up thelr management of the team and put lt under the control of the commlttee. In tho event that the commlttee took charge of the team none of the recelpts of games would revcrt to the assoclatlon, but would go lnto a permancnt athletlc fund. On the other hnnd lt was polnted out that lf tho team was run under n separate management from the rest of the leaguo no proflts would accrue to lt, JudgltiB from tho experlence of tho past, and wlth out the Y.
