THE SPRINGFIELD UNION, Springfield, Massachusetts, January 2, 1970 This 38 page newspaper has a four column photo at the bottom of the front page with heading: "Football Reigns Supreme on TV".
Page 39 has a nice banner headline: "Texas Conquers Notre Dame, 21-17" and more with photos..
Also, page 40 has a banner headline: " Penn State Turns Back Missouri, 10-3".
This tells of the of the bowl games played that had controversy over who should be National Champions. Penn State and Texas were both undefeated and President Richard Nixon's comment swayed pollsters to give the title to Texas.
Other news of the day. Minor spine wear, otherwise in good condition.
