Chess Tournament Planned At Dallas
Dallas (AP) — Preparations are fast taking shape for the Dallas International Chess Tournament which will draw master players from throughout the world.
The tournament will mark the centennial of international chess in the United States.
Emile Z. Gulutin, president of the Dallas International Chess Tournaments, Inc., says it will put the Texas city forever in chess history, since past tournaments are studied by exacting chess players.
The tournament will be held from Nov. 30 to Dec. 18 in a large downtown hotel. Eight master players will compete, including David Yanofsky of Canada, Bent Larsen of Denmark, Laszlo Szabo of Hungary, Svetozar Gligoric or Yugoslavia, Gideon Stahlberg of Sweden, Miguel Najdorf of Argentina, Samuel Reshevsky of New York City and Fridrik Olafsson of Iceland.
First alternate will be Arturo Pomar of Spain and the 14-year-old boy wonder of chess, Bobby Fischer of New York City, will be second alternate.
Large wallboards will be erected for the tournament so spectators may watch each move. A commentator will explain the moves.

Bobby Fischer Gives “Peace Sign” in 1958 and the Peace Movement Calling for Nuclear Disarmament

Bobby Fischer in 1958 and the Peace Movement Calling for Nuclear Disarmament

Bobby was leftist-leaning, like his mother, Regina Fischer who went on a “Peace March” to Moscow in 1961 to put pressure on the Khrushchevs and U.S.S.R. toward disarmament.

(Readers' Digest) The Dark, Untold Story About the Peace Sign
“It originated as a symbol used by the Direct Action Committee Against Nuclear War (DAC). An artist, Gerald Holtom, was on the groups' board, and as a well-known designer, stepped up to create a symbol that would have not only a visual but also a political impact. The symbol was first displayed during a protest march that took place on Easter weekend of 1958. Protesters marched 52 miles from London to Aldermaston in Berkshire, which is the site of the Atomic Weapons Research Establishment to protest the use of nuclear weapons in war. This march was organized by the DAC and it was the first wide spread public display of the peace sign.”

Bobby's views never strayed far from his roots. The collage above, mentions BERTRAND RUSSELL, who was responsible for putting the peace signs on the 1958 banners and buttons of the activists. BERTRAND RUSSELL held strong views opposing the Apartheid of Israel. Just as Bobby did. Bobby never abandoned his leftist-leaning roots which he learned from Regina Fischer. He loathed Fascism.
