Tiddlywinks, Anyone?

Reprinted from the New York Times, 17 June 1962, page S3 column 8


I am one of a party of four Oxford undergraduates who are making a tour of America this summer, playing tiddlywinks.  We are sponsored by Guinness and are being filmed in London later this month by CBS.  We hope to be appearing on television in New York.

However, we are at the moment short of matches during our stay in New York – between Aug. 3-16 and Sept. 6-15, approximately.  Do any of your readers know anyone who might like to play us?

I can assure you that this is a serious venture; I would be grateful for an early reply.
