A Vote of Thanks

This issue we part company, temporarily it is to be hoped, with Mr. George Koltanowski who has for so many months written effectively about "Chess Life Abroad." But Mr. Koltanowski is now an editor in his own right, publishing the CALIFORNIA CHESS NEWS, and has found the burden of his column in CHESS LIFE a little too onerous when added to his labors as a publisher and his frequent tours for simultaneous exhibitions.

CHESS LIFE wishes to thank Mr. Koltanowski for his yeoman service as a contributor in the infancy of the paper and wish him every deserved success in his own ventures as a publisher. The columns of CHESS LIFE will always be open to him, and it is to be anticipated that the readers will occasionally still be rewarded with articles from his pen. In the interim, while a new columnist is being selected, Mr. Guilherme Groesser whose occasional endgame compositions have been published in "White to Play and Win" has kindly consented to conduct the column.
