Our frequent correspondent, Moshe Roytman, informs us of he following ad [top]  from "Der Moment", a Yiddish-language newspaper, on Oct. 13 1913, declares the publishing of the "first Yiddish chess magazine" edited by Salwe and Kreichek (my phonetic spelling and promising contributions from Emmanuel Lasker, Akiba Rubinstein, and others. Another ad for the same magazine - below - from Nov. 19 1913 notes that the latest issue has an article about King Solomon [sic!] and the Wonder of Chess". Mr. Roytman informs me that a total of three issues were published in Oct.-Nov. 1913.
