The indoor championship games of the N. E. A. A. U. were held Saturday night under the auspices
of the Athletic Association of the M. I. T. and the First Regiment, in the South Armory.
Although no records were broken, very good time was made in several events:
especially in the mile run which was won in 4m. 42 4 5 sec.
The Harvard team made a good showing although hardly as good as had been expected.
However, out of the 64 points in the eight open events, Harvard won 26 to their opponents' 38.

The first event, the 75 yards dash was very closely contested.
Through some mistake only 70 yards was run in the trials, a fact which accounts for the time made.
The heat winners were as follows:
First heat, S. A. Coombs, B. A. A. first; W. S. Garcelon, H. A. A., second: time, 7 2.5 s.
Second heat. L. Sayre, H. A. A., first; A. B. P. Straight, B. U. A. A., second; time, 71 2s.
Third heat. E. H. Weeks, B. U. A. A., first; E. S. Benedict, H. A. A., second; time, 7 1-2 s.

Final. S. A. Coombs. B. A. A, first; E. B. Bloss, H. A. A., second L. Sayle, H. A. A., third; time.

The mile run was the prettiest race of the evening and was won by D. W. Fenton, H. A. A.;
second, W. A. Allison, W. A. C.; third, J. E. Morgan, Y. A. A.; time, 4m. 42 4.5 sec

Considering the fact that Fearing has been training for the crew all winter, his jump of 6ft. 1-2-in.
was somewhat of a surprise. He tried for 6. ft. 2 1-2 in. but failed.
Heywood, B. A. A. and Stingel, Mel. A.C. were tied for second at 5 ft. 9 1-2
Heywood won the toss up.
