NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Harvard won the first games for the new cup at Berkeley oval Saturday in a very close and interesting meeting The weather was perfect and the games drew out between four and five thousand spectators. Lee broke his own and the world's record in the 220 yards hurdle race, and R. H.
