Chessmen Win Fifth To Hold Second Place


With last night's 3 1/2 to 1 1/2 victory against the Commonwealth Chess Club in the Kirkland House dining hall, the Chess Club retained its second place position in the "B" division of the Boston Metropolitan Chess League. This was its fifth victory in the seven contests played so far this term.

Two members of the squad, John Moore, Junior Fellow, and Frank David '49, remain undefeated. The team's sole loss was suffered at the hands of the veteran chess players of the Boston Harvard Club headed by septuagenarian Rev. George L. Paine '96. They were tied by the Boylston Chess Club.

During the Christmas vacation the team will swing into Ivy League competition with a round robin tournament against Yale, Princeton and Dartmouth. Harvard, leading with fourteen victories in the past twenty-one contests, will seek to capture the championship cup for the fourth consecutive year.
