It's Not Easy - i - j smiling mouth in a gamine face. The Fischers separated when Bobby was 2 and Mrs. Fischer raised her two children on her earnings as a nurse. "I don't discipline Bobby. He's too big. Anyway, there's not much to say. He comes home and sticks his nose in a chess book, stops to eat, and he's back again until it's time to go to bed. "Bobby's one of the ones who play for blood as they say in chess. He's serious. He has to study all the time. The countries publish pamphlets and books at a great rate new opeinings always being worked out. "He's not interested in girls !yet they don't play chess. He doesnt smoke or drink. He does chew his nails down to the bone, but I'm afraid to make him stop. I don't know what he might take up. "Some of these chess players twitch all over. Honest. They start with an eye and twitch down to their feet and start again. I'd rather he chewed his nails." 'The only thing I do is nag him to get some fresh air. This year he's joined the Y and says he's I going to get in better physical j shape. He used to be wonderful at in fact, he himself used to say he wanted to be a baseball player. "I don't know a thing about j chess. In fact, I tried to make ihim stop for four years. But I've a:given up now."
