Chess for the First Time in the US

"Shaw's writing has plenty of flash, wit, and perception without becoming overbearingly wordy. Only occasionally last evening did thought come, 'Oh, yes, this is Shaw liking to hear himself talk!'"

The Art of the 1800s Slide Lecture was postponed Tuesday morning when no space was found to be available due to increased activities scheduled in the Arts and Crafts Building.
