The sport's section (page 23) has a seven column headline: "DiMaggio and Rolfe Accept Terms and End Yanks' Holdout Problems" with subheads and photo of DiMaggio. (see) First report coverage on Joe DiMaggio's contract signing after just four seasons with the New York Yankees. Great to have in this famous New York City publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 46 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.
