The annual games of the Yale Athletic Association and Second Regiment took place at the armory in New Haven Saturday night. Harvard had comparatively few men present, but they did very well and succeeded in winning four first and one second prizes. Yale, also did well. There was a large number of spectators present at the sports, and much interest was manifested, especially in the events in which the colleges sent contestants. Next year the new Yale gymnasium will probably be finished, and she will hold her winter games there instead of in company with the Second Regiment as the custom has been for several years past. The events and winners are as follows:
