The Pan-American Tournament, to be held in Los Angeles, is all arranged, according to Hollywood's Herman Steiner. Under the auspices of the California State Chess Association, this big event will begin on July 28th and finish on August 12th. Sixteen masters will be invited to participate - eight from the United States and eight from other Pan-American countries. The Los Angeles Times, which carries Steiner's chess column every Sunday, is guaranteeing prizes of $1000, $750, $500, $350 and $200! So far as we know, this is the first time that an American newspaper has sponsored a chess event.
