The sport's section (page 22) has a four column headline: "Ruth Sustains Injury to Leg as Yankees Win" with subheads and photo of Ruth. (see) Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication, especially in a Babe Ruth report.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 38 pages, 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.
