Degree in Chess

Degree in Chess

New York (News Feature). In what may be another Soviet "first," the Institute of Physical Education in Moscow recently organised courses leading to a degree in chess after four years of study.

Thirty students have been admitted to the course which will instruct them in the strategy, history and psychology of chess.

On graduation, the chess experts will train future national and international chess champions.

The Soviet Union has held the world chess championship since 1937 and is not inclined to see it slip away.

In addition the senate approved recommendations allowing for two students on each faculty council.

All student representatives are to have full voting rights, and duties and responsibilities equal to all other members.

The recommendations were drawn up by a joint committee of students, faculty and administration, which began sittings a year ago.
