Babe Ruth critically ill...

THE NEW YORK TIMES, April 9, 1942
* Babe Ruth near death?
* New York Yankees
This 40 page newspaper has two column headlines on page 21: "Babe Ruth Critically Ill on Coast, Shows Gain in Pneumonia Jacket", "Rushed to Hollywood Hospital After Long Chills, He Responds to Pulmonary Aid--Doctor Delays the Diagnosis". See photos for text here. Not much was found on this on the internet. Ironic he would die from pneumonia about 6 years later. Nice to have in this famous NYC title.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day throughout with much on World War II. Nice condition.
