Larger prizes given to the winners of tournament have changed the interest level of competitors. "Bigger prizes raises the respectability for the players," Karch said. Northwest Chess is running an ad in the March issue for a tournament in Canada offer- ing a $1,000 prize. "When I won matches in the service, my prizes were things such as cards and cigarette lighters," Karch said. The use of computers has popularized the game, Karch said, but many don't think the machines should be allowed to "play." "Thousands of people now have chess computers. These have their strengths and weaknessesses, and it is possible to beat them," he said.

High school chess has a specific level like all other sports, Karc h said, and these are planned 6ut carefully to accommodate the most inter- ested players. The season runs from right after Thanks- giving until the last weekend of February with a State High School Tournament. Many people participate in tournaments, chess-by-mail and international and na- tional events. There are 4,000 ranked players in this region, and 400 in the high school level. The magazine brings all these people together, with a monthly circulation that covers Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho and parts of British Columbia. There are about 1,000 subscribers and Karch said he hopes to see the newsletter become much more elaborate and graphic in the future. kept secret. Then someone takes the film and condenses it for later viewing. This is interesting to me, because I predicted ten years ago that something like this would be the trend.

Karch called the popularity in recent times genuine, as compared to the chess boom when Bobby Fischer was playing. "He did call a lot of atten- tion to the game, but along with that came many prob- lems," Karch said. "Many parents yanked their kids out of the sport because of the at- titude Fisher had.
