Russell of Brooklyn, a Rhodes scholar at Oxford University and captain of the varsity chess team there, has captured the Championship of the Oxford City Chess Club. Mr. Russell is a former Champion of New York University and the son of Chief Justice Isaac F. Russell of the Court of Special Sessions.

We wish him safe and pleasant travels.
