The front page of the sport's section (inside) has a nice banner headline: "MRS. KING RETURNS WIMBLEDON TENNIS TITLE TO U. S." with subheads and three related photos (see photos). First report coverage on Billie Jean King winning her first Wimbledon Women's singles title. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in a thick, 80+ page Sunday edition, very minor margin wear, generally nice.
