Plans for the international chess meet are now being drawn up in New York by a committee of graduates of Harvard, Yale, Princeton, and Columbia. Four boards will probably be played so that each of the American universities may have an equal number of representatives. The American team will play at the rooms of the German Chess Club, New York. The dates have not yet been definitely decided upon but will very probably be Friday, April 28 and Saturday, April 29.
The trophy, presented by Dr. Isaac Rice of New York was won by the English team two years ago and is still in their possession.
