This 30+ page newspaper has a five column headline on the front page of the sport's section (inside, near back): "Army Marches over Notre Dame, 48-0" with subhead: "Blanchard and Davis Run Wild" and stats. Coverage continues on the next page with photo and lineup (see images).

This tells of the famous football between the Army Cadets and Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

Only 11 times has a game been played between 2 teams that won the National championship the previous 2 years. This was one of those games. Not only that but they were currently the #1 & #2 ranked teams that year when they meet as well.

Other news, sports and advertisements of the day throughout. Light browning, otherwise good.
