The front page of the sport's section (inside) has a four column heading: "Ford Brightens Dull Series" and more. First report coverage on game 4 of the World Series in which Whitey Ford extended his World Series consecutive scoreless inning streak to 32 breaking Red Sox hurler Babe Ruth's previous record of 29 2/3 innings.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 40+ pages, a few library stamps in the masthead and some small binding holes along the spine, generally nice.
