The intercollegiate chess tournament which was finished on Tuesday resulted in an easy victory for Harvard by a score of nine points. Yale and Princeton tied for second place with six points each, while Columbia, who has won the cup for two years, came last with only three points. Columbia suffered particularly through the loss of Hymes, but both of her representatives were new men, as were those of Princeton. Harvard had only one old player, Ballou; while both of Yale's players had taken part in former intercollegiate tournaments.
The tournament was held in the rooms of the Harvard School, New York, and at its close a formal reception was given the members of the competing teams, at which the Harvard players were presented with the challenge cup and with silver medals. The cup is open to challenge up to June 1; failing that, it would remain permanently in Harvard's possession.
