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.
