Scarsdale (NY), looking for their third win of the season,
extended their lead to 155-110 over Horace Greeley (NY) and Pingry (NJ) after gaining 30 on the
HUMAN BODY bonus. Pingry trailed Scarsdale 230-215 after a Current Events question: “It recently
held its first major auction for trophy elephant hunting quotas since scrapping a hunting ban last year.
Name this country, home to the world's largest elephant population.” (Ans. Botswana) Pingry took the
lead on a solo shot: “A furor was created in England on Christmas Day, 1950, when an object involving the
history of England and Scotland was stolen from Westminster Abbey by a group of Scottish patriots.
What object?” (Ans. Stone of Scone) Pingry and Scarsdale were tied for the lead, at the end of the final
period, at 340 apiece, after this one: “Periodic table chess! A Bishop is standing on Hydrogen.
Name the only element to which it can legally move.” (Ans. Beryllium) It took four overtime questions
to win, and here’s the fourth: “The market value of all publicly traded German companies amounts to
$2.18 trillion, which is a smaller valuation than that of what two U.S. corporations combined,
which have a combined market capitalization of $2.23 trillion?” Pingry said “Apple & Microsoft”
and they were right, giving them their first win of the season.
