Kt-B6 mate

listen to the facetious comments of the spectators, but we were usually too engrossed in our own games. . , . Miss Karff and Mrs. Harrison both seemed to find it hard to arrive on time. . . . .

Miss Karff made a very nice speech when she was presented with the Hazel Allen Trophy and the championship silver bowl.
