Fischer Adjourns Di Camillo Game
Leader in U.S. Chess Has Edge in 11th-Round Test—Sherwin Is Victor
Although he outplayed his eleventh-round opponent, Atilio Di Camillo of Philadelphia, in the United States championship tournament for the Lessing J. Rosenwald Trophy at the Manhattan Chess Club last night, Bobby Fischer of Brooklyn, the 14-year-old national open champion, was forced to adjourn after forty moves, sealing his forty-first move.
He then had a bishop, knight and four pawns against a rook and four pawns. In actual fighting force the youth had the upper hand, but victory was by no means certain.
Fischer, with white, started with the Reti opening, which Di Camillo defended with the Tschigorin variation. Bobby castled on the fifth move, but Di Camillo waited until the nineteenth. In the mid-game complications the youngster kept his head and saw more clearly than his older adversary.
Pawn Advantage is Lost
Di Camillo emerged with a pawn to the good, but this, too, fell before Fischer's accurate play. His leading score of 8½-1½ remained the same. …
Among the following scores are the moves made by Fischer and Di Camillo up to the time of adjournment:

Bobby Fischer Gives “Peace Sign” in 1958 and the Peace Movement Calling for Nuclear Disarmament

Bobby Fischer in 1958 and the Peace Movement Calling for Nuclear Disarmament

Bobby was leftist-leaning, like his mother, Regina Fischer who went on a “Peace March” to Moscow in 1961 to put pressure on the Khrushchevs and U.S.S.R. toward disarmament.

(Readers' Digest) The Dark, Untold Story About the Peace Sign
“It originated as a symbol used by the Direct Action Committee Against Nuclear War (DAC). An artist, Gerald Holtom, was on the groups' board, and as a well-known designer, stepped up to create a symbol that would have not only a visual but also a political impact. The symbol was first displayed during a protest march that took place on Easter weekend of 1958. Protesters marched 52 miles from London to Aldermaston in Berkshire, which is the site of the Atomic Weapons Research Establishment to protest the use of nuclear weapons in war. This march was organized by the DAC and it was the first wide spread public display of the peace sign.”

Bobby's views never strayed far from his roots. The collage above, mentions BERTRAND RUSSELL, who was responsible for putting the peace signs on the 1958 banners and buttons of the activists. BERTRAND RUSSELL held strong views opposing the Apartheid of Israel. Just as Bobby did. Bobby never abandoned his leftist-leaning roots which he learned from Regina Fischer. He loathed Fascism.
