Chess Club Plans and Prospects.
The annual fall tournament of the Chess Club, for which entries have been received, will start in the course of a few days. The men entered will be divided into sections of six men, each of which will play a round robin. The two men having the best record in each section together with the men who played on last year's team will then meet in the semifinals, from the results of which a team of eight men and two substitutes will be chosen to compete with Yale at New Haven on November 18. From this team four men and two substitutes will be selected to play in the intercollegiate tournament to be held in New York during the Christmas vacation.
The prospects for a successful year are good,as the following seven members of last year's team are expected to return: P. W. Bridgman IG., L. P. Carr 1L., S. W. Howland '06, W. C. Cogswell '06, G. F. McClure '06, Q. A. Brackett '06., K. S. Johnson '07.
