Dr. Euwe Plays Draw
The second game of the exhibition series between Dr. Max Euwe of Amsterdam and Bobby Fischer of Brooklyn resulted in a draw after 41 moves at the Manhattan Chess Club.
The 13-year-old student played white and adopted a Ruy Lopez. He succeeded in capturing a pawn at an early stage, but in the position that ensued they were left with bishops commanding squares of opposite colors.
The former world champion experienced no difficulty in holding to a forced draw. Dr. Euwe was the winner of the first game on Saturday, thanks to a brilliant sacrificial combination.
Three games were finished in the club's championship finals. George Kramer won his adjourned game from Walter J. Shipman and then drew with Max Pavey, the club champion.
Arthur Feuerstein gained a second-round victory over Hugh Myers. Arthur B. Bisguier drew his first game with Abe Turner and Shipman won from Hugh Myers.

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.
