Chess Tournament.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Entries in the chess tournament close tonight at 6 o'clock, sharp. So few names have been signed in the blue-book at Bartlett's that the cup prospects are well-nigh desperate. If no more than 20 players enter, there can hardly be more than six players in the second round. And even strong players can play limp chess if they are left without strenuous competition. The advantage usually gained by the men that enter these tournaments is that combat between stranger styles that unfailingly leads to good chess at New York and good chess in the University. The position of sophomore champion ('98 and '99) lies now open, besides the University championship and the four guardships. If it must be that our chess spirit shall slacken in this crisis, let it not break.

J. W. PECK '96, C. H. DUNN '96, E. E. SOUTHARD '97, Tournament committee.
