Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 15, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Chess wizard Fischer trains like a boxer NEW YORK (AP) Thud. Thud. Thud. Bobby Fischer slams lu's chessmen across plastic foldup board with the In- tensity of a boxer training on the heavy bag. The 28-year-old chess slar is psyching himself up for the big pawn-lo-pawn confronta- tion with the Russians for the world championship in chess. High-strung and restless, Fis- cher sils at a desk in his small hotel room as he plots stralegy, playing againsl himself. "There's one way lo deal wilh Ihe power. Thai's all they said Fischer. seems like a big, healthy, energetic tennis good looking with blonde hair, fair skin, and a broad, bright smile. He rarely wears casual clothes. He visits 'a Russian bookstore on occasion to buy chess books end riffle through newspapers looking for an article on him- self. "I read Russian. I know what they're saying about me, the creeps." One story called him lucky in his last match. "Yeah, I picked up the right piece by accident." Accident is not the word for the unheard of wallopings he has delivered this year. After seven consecutive victories at the qualifying malchcs in Spain, Fischer wenl on lo smash Rus- sia's Mark Taimar.ov and Ihen Denmark's Benl Larsen, win- ning six games against each and losing none. Fischer has brought excite- ment, drama and hope to U.S. chess since he was a prodigy from Brooklyn at age 14. Once considered the enfant terrible of chess, he has put aside temper- ament and quarrels with offi- cials in his bid lo lake Ihe tille. He competes in a mind-twist- ing board game where tense competition has made men cry with disappointment or clutch their nervous stomachs. His supporters see Us possi- ble victory as a propaganda coup for the United Slates. For years, they say, the Rus- sians have held the world cham- pionsliip. They've said it is evi- dence of the superiority of the Soviet man and the Soviet sys- tem. Fischer plays Tigran Petro- sian of the Soviet Union, former world champ, in Buenos Aires beginning Sept. 30. If he wins, he will face Boris Spassky i'oi the world title next spring. Spassky, with three wins, two draws and no losses, has the best record of any Russian grandmaster Bgainst Fischer. It might seem that Fischer is outgunned by the sheer organi- zation and manpower of the Russian machine. However, his weapons are im- U.S. champion- ships, starting at age 14, the youngest-ranking international grandmaster at 35, ajid a long- time, fearsome reputation as one of the most brilliant, ag- gressive players the game has ever seen. TRAINED IN SYSTEM The Russians will fight back with players trained in a system where potential chess stars are culled from elementary schools, trained, financially supported and given research assistants called seconds. In contrast, Fischer, a high school dropout, generally uses no assistants because "it's hard to get anyone to do what you want them to." A bachelor, he lives from hotel to hotel, supporting him- self with prize money from chess tournaments and proceeds from his three books. He can be exuberant and funny, but ask him a remotely personal question and his hazel eyes take on a smoky, suspi- cious look. Called the most money-con- scious player in chess, he won't say how much he makes a year. Prize money for a single tour- nament can range from to not counting his hon- orarium. Fischer admits he makes considerably more than a year. Fischer is doing his own pub- licity work and breast-beating. Fischer sees the coming .Tidlejjes as confz-ontalions be- tween an American and the Russians, off the board. PLAY TO HILT "The Russians play this psy- chological game to the hilt. They say I'm rude and surly. They hint that I cheat. What they accuse you of, they're usually doing. Their instructions are to win any way they can. "But you can't blame the peo- ple. They've never had a sys- tem of democracy like we do." Why does he want to win? "I want the money and the he says. But he adds: "To show them I'm the best." Fischer has known disappoint- ments. In 1961, at ago 19, he de- clared he would be world cham- pion. He beat an impressive number of Russian players in- cluding Pelrosian, then suffered a surprising and resounding de- feat at the world candidates' tournament in 1962. He sat out the next round of qualifying matches for the triennial world championship. He walked out of the round fol- lowing that, after a dispute with officials over playing conditions. Fischer denies that he was afraid of failing then, adding that the lighting was horrible and his schedule was too fast. Some say he has grown up in the last few years and is better equipped to handle the pressure. He agrees that he has ma- tured. He's trying (o control his temper. "I'm keeping my mind on the title and off how stupid people are some times. I play by the rules now." Fish die by tJiousaiids The dirty, dirty Hudson NEW YORK (AP) Summer comes to the Hudson Valley when the spring runoff from the snow-capped Adirondack Moun- tains trickles to a halt and heat evaporation thickens the river with sewage and industrial wastes. People who live near Albany know summer has arrived when the alewives, striped bass, whi V perch and shad die by the thousdands, turn belly up and rot for days before washing downstream. This is the 10th year since the annual fish kills began in the Albany area during the long drought that magnified water pollution all over the northeast- ern United States. This also is the year Gov. Wei- son A. Rockefeller set when he promised it would lake six years to clean up the Hudson and other state waterways if voters approved his billion bond issue to finance waste treatment plants. But for the Hudson River, this is the year tlsat promise will be broken. From the tfme the drought- threatened voters approved Rockefeller's bond issue, through last fidl when the U.S. attorney for the southern dis. trict in New York City empa- nelled the First anti-pollution grand jury in the U.S., the Hud- son, a river only 315 miles long, has been the objsct of some of the strongest cleanup efforts in the United Slates. But today, the river is still badly polluted, and no one is guessing anymore when it will be clean. Nearly half of some 323 pollu- ters have been stopped, but the work has made a relatively clean stretch of the river cleaner and left the worst pollu- tion virtually untouched. The federal government forced further delays when it agreed to match the state's grants and in doing so prodded the state to require that treat- ment plants remove 90 per cent of sewage wastes instead of the originally proposed 65 per cent. The new standard forced New York City to scrap blueprints for a treatment plant on the Hudson that by 1971 would hav< achieved 85 per cent removal. Now the city won't finish (he plant until 1976 and until then it will continue to pour 192 million gallons of raw sewage inlo the river each day. Other polluters resisted or ig- nored orders to clean up. Small towns vowed for years that until bigger polluters upriver quit dumping wastes that ended up in their water, they, too, would refuse to act. Tax revolts by voters denied other towns the bonds needed to finance required treatment. The state eventually forced every city and town along the river into a cleanup agreement, but big industries avoided such pressures. Since 1965, the state attorney- general's office has assessed only ii fines against pol- luters of the Hudson and has suspended about half of them. By contrast, the federal govern- ment recently fined five indus- tries on the lower Hudson a total of more than Abandoned stores beckon TORONTO (CP) The Store 1 "Our operation here helps pie's own said Paul Front Lawyers isn't just a ro- manticized dream played out on a television screen, but is a fact of life in Toronto where increas- ing numbers of lawyers and other professional people are moving into abandoned stores.
