To the Editors of the Crimson:
We were informed by the newspapers that, during the Christmas holidays, Harvard won the chess cup. And those of us who have seen this cup, which is a beauty, occupying a prominent place in the Columbia College Library, naturally looked forward to seeing the trophy displayed in Cambridge. Thus far we have looked in vain. Perhaps the cup is carefully locked away in a safe. If so it is a pity. Is there any good reason why this cup should not be placed on exhibition? By the way, there may be other treasures under lock and key which would be more appreciated elsewhere.
