The top of the front page has a three column headline: "SENATOR BLACK NOMINATED AS SUPREME COURT JUSTICE; QUICK CONFIRMATION BALKED" with subheads. (see) First report coverage on Hugo Black being nominated as Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court. Black was accused by many of being associated with the Klu Klux Klan. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this famous New York City publication.
