The third game, already five hours old is scheduled to re- sume on the 41st move at 1 p.m. EOT, and experts thought Fis- cher would have it wrapped up fairly scon.

The high mass and requiem will be at St. John the Evangel- ist Roman Catholic Church in Belledune. 15 miles north of here, and burial will be near the small church. The church is near the cot- tage where the stepdancing bal- ladeer and hoarse-voiced singer spent his recent summers with his wife, Lydia. His body was at a funeral home here Sunday, with a derby and cane, his trademarks, rest- ing on the coffin. Chamberlain started life in the northeastern New Bruns- wick woods July 14, 1911, and spent his early years as a lum- berjack.

But, while the unpredictable American now is considered likely to agree Ui continue the trouble-plagued match, it may run into more trouble Tuesday this time in the form of Rus- sian protests over the decision to move play from the main auditorium.
