How would you like it if he were a genius? "It's not easy," says Mrs. Rc- gina Fischer of Brooklyn. Her 15-year-old son, Bobby, is a genius at chess. He won the United States championship at 14 and became the youngest international Grand Master in history this summer. His one dream is to-snatch the world chess crown from the present champion, Russia's Mikhail Botvinnik. One of Mrs. Fischer's definitely "not easy" moments came this summer when Bobby appeared to be stranded in Yugoslavia after his first international tournament. "He had a round trip ticket, but nobody made any reservations for him and he couldn't get a plane. 1 knew he'd spent most of his money at the World Fair in Belgium and I was afraid the Yugoslav Chess Federation wouldn't go on paying for him afte: the tournament had ended. j "I went to the Yugoslav Embassy but it was the weekend and I couldn't find anybody. I tried to call Bobby, but they said he had left by train. "I was really worried. I knew he was loaded down with books and I didn't see how he could manage. He doesn't speak the languages. I could just see him sleeping in a train station somewhere and people stealing everything he had." But Bobbj used his tournament prize money to get to Munich where he found plane space home. Chess is not a popular game and there are no funds to send the American champion to tournaments. Bobby won two tickets to Yugoslavia on a television program. His 21-year-old sister, Joan, took the second. "Bobby doesn't like the idea of his mother going around with him to tournaments. Besides, I figured it would be better for me to be here in case anything was needed -- money, primarily." She laughed ruefully--a slender, dark-haired woman with a 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 opening always being worked out. "He's not interested in girls yet --they don't play chess. He doesn't 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 tak^ up. "Some of these chess players 1 958 in Review ... s U.S. Publishers Had No c Newsprint Trouble In 58 c By WALlER BUSSEWITZ AP Business News Writer NEW YORK (AP)-U.S. news ijaper publishers had no problem getting enough newsprint in 1958 There was such a bulge of sup ply over demand the North American newsprint producers paused in their big expansion programs The U.S. and Canadian mills were able to serve their customers without drawing on around 15 per cent oi capacity. Consumption should rise in 1959, along with the expected improvement in the nation's economy. But producers are sure they can han die even a sudden strong spurt in demand. The American Newspaper Publishers Assn. reported consumption for much of this year ran about 4 per cent under 1957. During the past two years, twitch all over. Honest.

Despite the growth of newsprint manufacturing in the U S., the do ' mestic industry still is less than ( one-third the size of Canada's. Newsprint is selling on a con- \ tract basis in New York at a de- \ livered price of $134 a ton. The last general boost cif $4 a ton came in March 1957. As the year neared its end, Sir Eric Bowater, head of Bowater paper Corp., was asked about the future of newsprint prices. He said: "Somebody has got to absorb the ever increasing costs of pro- uction and distribution, a tendency that never seems to stop. It's not true to say I'm contemplating it, but a rise in prices is needed. ' her golden topknot." Another thing that helps is the quicker dye process, less than two hours, and th range of natural colors available. One of the most popular shades at New York's Les Girls salon, where Nancy is stylist and fashion coordinator, is a claret blonde shade that is blonde with just a slight cast of pink in it. Beige blonde has a slight grey cast that it flattering lo most women, and mutation blonde, snnthpr nnmilar shade, is a mixture of gradual shadings of blonde, lighter towards the face anrl darkening toward the sack of the head.

There will be more than usual emphasis on the hair this year. Ladies who own important jeweled clips will transier them to the hair. Tiaras will be worn. Any flattering ornament that may enhance a girl's crowning glory without hiding the coiffure, plain or fancy, will serve the purpose.
