But here was are a long way from the south, and a t times it is very cool in the hal l . The spectators sit in their coats , or sometimes remove them and hang them on the backs o f the me tal chairs with canvas seat s , which comple tes s til l further the similarity with the cinema hal l . But now picture t o yourse l f a cinema in which not one , but several films are s imul­ taneously being shown , and each spectator is free to choose , according to taste , a fairy tale , drama , comedy, de tective story , or a simp le tale with a happy ending .

Howeve r , we w i l l not s tart gues sing - the second cycle i s already beginnin g . THEY' RE OFF O N T HE SECOND LAP • • • The Montreal newspapers do not lose sight of the World Champion even outside the tournament hall .

The youths along­ side the screens merely implemen t the will of the skilful grandmasters , and communicate their ideas to the pieces on the luminous squares .
