THE NEW YORK TIMES, sport's section only, August 11, 1929
* Grover Alexander breaks record
* Christy Mathewson's wins (NL)
* St. Louis Cardinals - MLB
Page 5 of this section has a banner headline: "Yanks Beat Indians; Robins Divide---Alexander Wins 373d Game, Sets Record" with subheads: "Alexander Victor, Sets League Mark" "Beats Phils, 11-9, in 11 Innnigs, Scores 373d Triumph of His Career---Enters Game in 8th" "Passes Mattys Record" and more. In the summary it says in part: "Grover Cleveland Alexander broke the lifetime National League winning record of the late Christy Mathewson...in the second game of a double-header...today. It was old Pete's 373d triumph as a Philly, a Cub and a Cardinal" plus box scores. Nice two column photo of Alexander in a wind-up pose wearing a Cardinal uniform.
Other sport's news of the day. Complete sport's section only with all 8 pages, light toning at the margins, a little irregular along the spine, generally nice.
