* Lou's Gehrig's disease - Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
* Studied shortly before his famous "luckiest" speech


The top of page 17 has a two column heading: "Gehrig Case Is Expected to Spur Research Into Baffling Malady" with subhead. (see) I suspect this is one of the few publications to report this particular event as other titles in our inventory do not.
