The victory of Miss Karff (National Women's Champion) had been anticipated, perhaps not to so overwhelming a degree. With this second convincing demonstration of her ability, she definitely proves her preeminence among women players.

Special prizes for brilliancy were awarded to Donald MacMurray in his game with Weaver Adams in the Consolation Masters class and to Mayers in class "A" for his win over Edelston. Santasiere took the prize for the hardest fought game, the one in which he defeated Kashdan in 127 moves! The prize for the best game by any player under 23 years old, went to George Shainswit.

In addition to the regular prizes there were some half a dozen additional awards offered by as many chess enthusiasts during the course of the tourney. These were for best played games and brilliant combinations in the various classes, the winners to be announced shortly. Among those making special donations, which included cash, books and chess sets, were John F. Barry who conducts the weekly chess column in the Boston Transcript, L. Holloway and W. M. P. Mitchell both of Brookline and also competitors in the tourney, Arthur Sandberg, a Boston attorney, Mrs. Geo. H. Babbitt, in memory of her late husband, of Providence, R. I. and James E. Ackroyd of the City Club.
