"The Chess Club and other small Clubs."—(Extract from speech at Opening Social, 1917).
This year the membership of the Club has been considerably enlarged. We have quite a number of new players, many of whom are already leaving the "beginner stage" behind them. Our regular weekly meetings have been revived, and once a month we have a special "Chess Evening," when the players, successful and unsuccessful alike, are rewarded with supper.
Professor Garrow has again consented to be our President, and altogether there is every prospect of a successful year.
The Committee extends a most hearty invitation to all who wish to acquired kill in the playing of this "most cosmopolitan of games."
The following problem is offered for solution—
- White : K at QB6, R at QRsq.
- Black : K at Qktsq., R on QRsq., P at QR3.
- White to play and win.
