Item # 648045

November 22, 1929

THE NEW YORK TIMES, November 22, 1929

* Knute Rockne's infected legs worsen
* Notre Dame Fighting Irish
* College football

The sport's section (page 33) has one column headings: "ROCKNE IS WORSE; INFECTION SPREADS" "Both Legs Are Now Affected, but Coach's Condition Is Not Alarming, Doctor Says" "Notre Dame Mentor Is Likely Not to See His Team Finish Its Schedule" and more. (see) Rockne would die in a airplane crash a little more than a year later.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 56 pages, a little irregular along the spine, generally nice.
