The Intercollegiate Games.


The annual intercollegiate game were held at the Berkely Oval, New York, Saturday afternoon. Harvard failed to win first place but her representatives showed up well. Although only winning two first prizes, Harvard had a large number of exceedingly close seconds. In the bicycle race to be contested today, Harvard may win first place. Davis won the race easily, but the referee's decision gives Clark a chance for first place. The 440-yards race between Dohm and Downes was very close and Dohm won by only one fifth of a second. In the mile walk McIlvaine forged ahead at the finish by only a few inches.

The meeting as a whole was very successful. Eight records were broken, and the work was above the average. The final standing of the colleges was as follows, not counting the bicycle race:

Columbia, 4 firsts, 2 seconds; Yale 3 firsts, 5 second; Harvard 2 first, 6 second; Princeton 2 first, 1 second; Amherst 1 first; University of Pennsylvania 2 first. The following table shows the new records made Saturday and the previous records:
