Page 4 has a one column heading: "Daytona Record Is Set by Petty" First report coverage on the 6th Daytona 500 race which was won by Richard Petty, his 1st 500 win.
Also on the same page is a interesting three column heading: "Liston Sure of KO Win" He was right about one thing, it was a KO win, but for Cassius Clay.
