There was little to be done at the meeting of the Chess Club last night, as nearly all the arrangements for the Intercollegiate Tournament have been made. The tournament will be between Harvard, Princeton, Columbia and Yale, and will be held in New York in the week beginning Dec. 26. Harvard will be represented by two players and two substitutes chosen from the following men: S. M. Bal ou, L. B. Shoenfeld, W. L. Van Kleeck, H. Lewis, and G. S. Mumford.
