HARVARD, 56; YALE, 48.

All the Events Closely Contested.- Three Records Broken.


Harvard defeated Yale in dual track games on Holmes Field Saturday afternoon by the score of 56 points to 48. The games were the closest and most exciting that have ever been held on Holmes Field. Every race was a struggle from start to finish, and in the shorter races the judges had trouble in deciding upon the winners.

Until the starting of the broad jump and high jump, the last events, Yale was in the lead by seven points. In the broad jump Nickerson and Clarke easily outclassed the Yale jumpers; Nickerson, on his last jump, made 22 ft. 10 in., which breaks the record. Taintor, Yale's high jumper, dropped out at 5 ft. 8 in., leaving but Rice, Ellis and Morse still jumping.

Two other records in addition to that of the broad jump were broken and one equalled. Grant lowered the mile record by 5 1-5 seconds, Johnson of Yale cleared 11 ft. 3 in. in the pole vault and Robinson equalled 10 1-5s. in the shorter dash.

W. D. Hennen is the first Harvard man to win the hammer throw.

The other who men won points by second and third places all deserve credit for showing pluck and sand.
