Is it right that beauty is so often only its own reward? Surely not! And thanks to the generosity of Dr. Ronald Hames, the scales of justice have become more evenly balanced between how one wins and the hard fact of victory. For now in Chess Life the players who conduct scintillating games will receive the Hames Correspondence Game of the Year Awards.

Resident postal editor Alex Dunne is the judge of a contest with prizes of $100 for the best game by a master and $100 for the best game by a non-master to appear in "The Check Is in the Mail" [Mr. Dunne's column in CHESS LIFE MAGAZINE. Ed.] during a given year.

What better reason, then, to send your postal brilliancies to Alex Dunne.
