Chess and Whist Club.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The Harvard Chess and Whist Club is about to begin the winter with a chess tournament which ought to be a great success. The membership of the club is full and includes a number of excellent chess players. However, as there must be many men in the University not in the club who play strong chess, the tournament is thrown open to all with the hope that the championship of the college will actually be held by the Harvard man that plays the best game. A blue book will be left for two weeks at Foster's to receive entries, after which time the drawings will be made and the matches arranged. As usual, the winner of the tournament will play the champion of last year, in this case F. W. Nicolls '92.

Chess will probably soon furnish intercollegiate contests as well as the athletic sports, as is evident from the letter recently sent by the Columbia Chess Club to Harvard, in which they propose a series of matches between a Harvard team and one picked from their own club. Unfortunately Columbia will play only in New York and the finances of the Harvard club will not be able to bear the expense of sending two or three men to New York for the length of time necessary to play a tournament. So this year an acceptance to the challenge cannot be thought of.
