The top of the front page has a two column photo and one column heading: "TY COBB GETS $10,000 CHECK, HONOR OF CITY" with subheads. (see) Great to have in a Detroit publication. Rare as such.
The front page of the sport's section (page 21) has a one column heading: "Ruth Fined $5,000 And Sent Home" with subheads. (see) First report coverage on Babe Ruth's suspension due to being late for batting practice after a night on the town. Was he hungover ?
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 60+ pages, light toning and a little wear at the margins, generally nice.
