Herman Steiner Against 400

Herman Steiner, Los Angeles master, writes us that his gigantic simultaneous exhibition in Hollywood, for the benefit of British War Relief, was a huge success. Steiner played against 400 on 100 boards, won 83, drew 11, lost 6 in 9 hours, 20 minutes. The event drew a large movie crowd.

The Russian War Relief has asked Steiner to give an exhibition for their cause, playing against 500 on 125 boards.

"That leaves only the Chinese to complete the cause for democracy," writes Steiner. "I presume it will be against 1000. For that I shall hire roller skates."
