	That is the experience we had with our public classes at the NYTS. We
were charging largely token amounts for high-quality classes, and nobody
was showing up. When we raised our fees to 2/3 to 3/4 of the market
rate, attendence shot up. Without these classes, we would be operating
in the red; with them, we are breaking even (note, however, that
Theosophical classes are still free, or with a low fee that is for all
intents and purposes voluntary).
