Fischer, Bronstein Deadlock In Chess
Bobby Fischer of Brooklyn and David Bronstein of Russia played to a draw in sixty-two moves in a game that had been adjourned from the sixth round in the interzonal chess tournament at Portoroz, according to a report last night from Yugoslavia.
The 15-year-old United States champion then had a score of 2½—2½ and is on even terms with such masters as Oscar Panno of Argentina, Laszlo Szabo of Hungary and Dr. Miroslav Filip of Czechoslovakia. Bronstein is only half a point ahead of the youngster.
Bronstein had another session in his fifth-round game with Pal Benko of Hungary, in which fifty-nine moves have been recorded. Benko, still undefeated, has a score of 3½—½ and Bronstein has 3—2. The Hungarian has had his bye.
When the results of the other adjourned games had been recorded, Fridrik Olafsson of Iceland and Tigran Petrosian of Russia had totals of 4½—1½ apiece. Olafsson beat Svetozar Gligoric of Yugoslavia.
Bent Larsen of Denmark, with a score of 4—2, was tied with two Russians, Yuri Auerbach and Mikhail Tal.

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.
