In the play off for second place in the chess tournament, A. W. Ryder '97 beat Thorndike Spalding, L. S. The final score in a tournament remarkable for the paucity of new heads and the evenness of the old ones is as follows:

E. E. Southard '97, first, 8.5-.5.

A. W. Ryder '97, second, 7-2.

T. Spalding, L. S., third, 7-2.

J. W. Peck '96, fourth, 6-3.

E. P. Fay '96, fifth, 5.5-3.5.

The freshman championship falls to F. E. Thayer '99, the only member of the lower classes that made the final round. It is hoped that he will be challenged early.

The four guards will be picked from the first five in the tournament. And, as it is unlikely that Spalding will have time to play, the other four will probably step in at once.

Games for the championship of the university and the privilege of playing for Harvard at New York are now going forward between Southard and Harold Lewis '95, champion. In case Southard beats Lewis, Lewis will play Ryder for the New York team.

The committee has sent to Mr. Caswell of New York, chairman of the executive committee of the cup donors, a list of ten names from which the New York players will be finally chosen. The alphabetically ordered list comprises, with the names given above, C. L. Barnard '97, C. H. Dunn '96, and H. S. Johnson '96.

Tickets (price 50 cents) for admission to the New York rooms during the tournament are in the hands of the Secretary, 1 Thayer Hall.
