Dr. A. W. Ryder Simultaneous

The chess experts of the University of California have been challenged to contest by Dr. A. W. Ryder, instructor in Sanskrit in the university. Ryder has agreed to combat, singly and alone, the entire force of the college chess club. The learned professor is a player of repute, having played for several years on the Harvard chess team, which he afterward coached.
