* Walter Hagen wins U.S. Open golf championship
* 2nd of 11 major victories
The sport's section (page 19) has a four column headline: "HAGEN TAKES NATIONAL OPEN GOLF TITLE" with subheads. (see) First report coverage on Walter Hagen winning his 2nd of 11 major titles in professional golf. He ranks third behind Jack Nicklaus (18) and Tiger Woods (14). Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 32 pages, light toning at the margins, irregular along the spine, generally nice.
