The sport's section of this issue is loaded with college football reports from the previous day. Page 4 of this section has small and somewhat discrete headings at the bottom of the page that read: "Iowa On Top, 46-0" and "Has Easy Time With Monmouth as New Stadium is Opened". See photo for brief 1st report coverage on the very 1st game played at Kinnick Stadium which is still used today by the Iowa Hawkeyes college football team. Unfortunate for the small report here, but it is what it is.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day throughout. Complete in a thick 100+ page Sunday edition, this is the rare rag edition that was produced on very high quality newsprint, with a high percentage of cotton & linen content, allowing the issues to remain very white & sturdy into the present. Given the subscription cost, libraries & institutions rather than individuals were the primary subscribers of these high-quality editions. Very nice condition.
