  MissScarlett: (Lincoln) Sunday Journal and Star, May 6th 1973, Sect. H p.10:

<When Aleks organized his first national tournament in Lincoln, the U.S. Junior Championship in 1955, a young 13-year-old named Bobby Fischer made his first appearance on the national scene. Aleks invited the youngster to stay at his home and began a friendship with Bobby that led eventually to Iceland where just last summer Aleks had the pleasure and delight of seeing the new champion of the world wrest the crown from the Russian Boris Spassky. We who look back now may mark this event as a fitting climax to Aleks' life-long involvement in chess.>
