In consequence of this tendency to bring the games at a comparatively early date, it is said that Yale would be glad to vote for a change of the constitution so as to make the Mott Haven games occur on the first Saturday in June. The Yale management have not said officially that they would move such a change, but it is understood that they think it would be advantageous to all the colleges.
Date of the Mott Haven Games.
The intercollegiate constitution provides that the champion athletic events shall occur the last Saturday in May. This year such a provision makes the date May 25, whereas the first Saturday in June comes upon the first of the month. It has been the custom for Yale and Harvard to hold their dual contest before all the colleges meet; such an arrangement followed out this year would bring them together upon the track May 11.
