REGINALD OWEN, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Star

Plays a pretty fair game. He and Frank Morgan play on a tiny pocket chessboard between scenes in pictures. Owen learned the game in England as a boy in order to play with an uncle. He says that its continual employment of forethought sharpens the wits and fascinates him.

"There arc thousands of youngsters taking part in tournament play there now," he said. "

by the game, they have been kept oft the streets, and it proved to the Mayor he had been right in giving hobby instruction instead of granting a request for additional police to curb juvenile crime. Newspapers there each devote six columns of space weekly to the game and the youngsters' playing."

The fascination of the game for the youth in Toronto was remarked by Sid Kirk, athletic and hobby instructor for a service club. He reported youths in evening hobby classes at General Mercer School often showed more interest in chess after he had taught them, than they showed in basketball.

One readily sees the extensive vistas which arc thus opened up to Chess; but it is a pity that Chess can seemingly flourish only in hard times!
