The top of page 12 has a two column photo of Willie Hoppe with heading: "WILLIE HOPPE WILL GIVE YAMADA CHANCE AT THE 18.2 BILLIARD CHAMPIONSHIP" (see) Surprisingly this issue is in good condition being from the "wood pulp" era. Very hard to find issues that are not totally fragile from this era in paper.
Complete with 18 pages, small library stamp within the masthead, a little irregular along the spine, generally very nice.
