YALE DECLINES.

Last evening a Yale University meeting was held to consider a proposition made by Harvard some time ago to Yale to participate in intercollegiate athletic sports of a general kind. Various objections were made to an acceptance, the principal one being that Yale had no preparation or chance to train that would warrant meeting Harvard at present. President Cuyler of the athletic association, Storrs of the university crew, and Badger of the base-ball team, spoke in opposition, and it was voted unanimously not to accept. That the college athletic standard may be raised, it was voted to have class games in the spring as a preliminary to the general athletic games, the president of the association to have their direction.
