This 20 page newspaper has one column headings on page 3: "M'Graw And 'Matty' Summoned To Court", "Police Charge Sunday Benefit Game for 69th Was Part of National League Schedule". See photo for brief coverage on the arrest of Christy Mathewson and John McGraw for violating the blue law. Nice to have in this famous NYC title.
