Tartakower-Spielmann match: Tartakower now leads 2 1/2 - 1 1/2

We have received from Vienna the news that after the eighth game of their current match Dr. Saviely Tartakower leads Rudolf Spielmann by the score of 2 1/2 - 1 1/2 in the race to five points. We remind our readers that under the rules governing the contest the first four drawn games were agreed not to figure in the scoring, thus accounting for the discrepancy between the number of games played and the total points accumulated to date.

Reports from Vienna have been sporadic and less than complete, for which we once again express our regrets.  As some small consolation, we can inform our readers that we have made arrangements to receive the remaining games of the match from a different and, we believe, more reliable source, and so we expect that there will be no further lacunae in our coverage of this event.
