TUESDAY, JUNE 22,1954 BLYTHEVTLLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAQB TKREI U.S., Russian Chess Matches Erupt Into Heated Word Battle By GEOFFREY GOULD NEW YORK (AP) — The U. S.-Russian chess tournament, hailed as promoting cultural understanding between the two countries, erupted early today into a heated and wordy argument over time clocks. Two protests were lodged, one by a Russian, player and one by the top American, Referee Hans Kmoch overruled the Russian, but argument on the other protest went into the wee hours of the morning. A final decision was left up in the air until later today. At the same time the Russians pulled into a commanding 13-6 point lead midway through the third, round of the six-day-old tournament, which had been completely decorous and polite up to this point. Reds Near Victory They need just S 1 -? points more to clinch the 32-game tourney. The American protest was lodged by Samuel Reshevsky when it was discovered that a faulty time clock apparently gave his opponent, No. 1 Russian player Vassily Smyslove, 35 extra minutes. The game still is not completed. Reshevsky, as the five-hour evening session neared its end., had to move feverishly to get in his required 40 moves. The Russian, because of the out-of-kilter clock, was not pressed for time at all. In the other protest, Russian Yuri Auerbach forfeited his game to young Donald Byrne because he made only 39 moves when the time ran out. He said be hadn't understood that his 40 moves had to be completed before a small flag on the face of the clock dropped down. Kmoch, who is an American, overruled him on the basis that the flag signal was plainly described in the written ground rules. Argue Upstairs A cluster of gesticulating officials, players and even spectators crowded around the referee. American chess authorities and Russian players and officials carried their argument over the Resh- evsky dispute upstairs to the Russian suite in the Hotel Roosevelt, where the tournament is being held. Dmitri Postnikov, nonplaying Russian team captain, did most of the talking through an interpreter. The American captain, Alexander Bisno, suggested the game be called a draw, but the Russians didn't consider this fair. The matter was referred to a committee of Russian and American team officials. Besides Donald Byrne's decision over Auerbach, the Americans drew one game and lost two. Byrne is the only U. S. player ahead ofj his opponent at tnis point.

(AP Wirephoto) Vote on Merger o f Packard, Studebaker Set for August 17 By DAVID J. WILKIE AP Automotive Editor NEW YORK l/Pi—Stockholders of Packard Motor Car Co. and the Studebaker Corp. will vote Aug. 17 on whether to combine the two pioneer auto companies. A consolidation of the two remaining "independents" among the car makers has been approved by their directors. The plan scheduled to be announced today, calls for year-old president of Packard, as president and principal executive officer of the new company. The new organization would be known as the Studebaker-Packard Corp. Technically the program proposes the purchase by Packard of Studebaker's assets. Paul G. Hoffman. 63-year-old Studebaker board chairman.- will become chairman of the new company. Harold S. Vance. 63. president of Studebaker. will head an executive operating group. Principal headquarters of the new company will be in Detroit, home of Packard. Stock to Be Re-Classified Submitted to stockholders will be a proposal for reclassification of Packard stock on the bases of one share for each five presently held. Then Studebaker stockholders, if they approve the proposal, would get l ! o shares of the new company slock for each share of Studebaker common they now have.

But there are no dolls in the "buggies The girls are taking their rabbits for a stroll. Sometimes they are accompanied by Scott Burns, right, who takes his rabbit along in a toy jeep. The kids got the pets for Easter. saction will be that the new Studebaker-Packard organization will have about Q\' 2 million shares of stock outstanding. Two distinct and separate sales organizations will be maintained to handle Packard's medium and high-priced lines and Studebaker's low and low-medium priced cars and over-all truck line. The projected Studebaker-Packard combination is the latest move among the smaller concerns in their fight against the almost overwhelming competition of the industry's larger concerns. Last year Kaiser-Frazer and Willys- Overland joined forces. A few weeks ago Nash-Kelvinator and Hudson combined to become American Motors Corp. All six of the small car companies together have been able to garner less than five per cent of the auto market so far this year. General Motors, Ford and Chrysler have accounted for more than 95 per cent. Steel Industry Eyed for Signs Of Wage Boosts Contract Concessions To Unions Could Mean Higher Prices PITTSBURGH i/?i ---InclusuuilUts and consumers krpi a c-loso wutch on this sloe! (.-.ipitnl today, hope- iul of getting un inklins whether 600,000 employes of the biusic steel industry will \vi n t'ontruci concessions Which ultimately could «\enn higher prices tor the thousands of articles made of steel. David J. MeHoiuild. president of the CIO United Steelmakers, prepared to report to hLs Executive Board and the union's powerful 170-man \V«i>e Policy Committee on contract talks with U. S. Steel Corp. The union, which received an 8 ! 2 cent hourly raise last- year, asked for an unspecified wage hike. McDonald also urged liberalized hospital izaUon and pension programs, as well as other couvract changes. Big steel kept mum on what it would' offer, if anything'. And union leaders didn't comment on what progress, if any, they made in the bargaining talks which recessed last Friday subject to recall at any time. There has been considerable speculation that big steel would not agree to a wage hike—at least not a large one—but would go along with better pensions and liberalized hospitalization programs. The union also demanded a guaranteed annual wage. It was thought big steel might agree to study the proposal. Contracts with basic steel producers expire at midnight, June 30.
