Greenberg hits No. 47

At left, it's certainly not hard to tell where The Times stands on the recall election of Mayor Frank Shaw.

At left, Hank Greenberg hits his 47th home run. Note the photo of Loyola's football players, especially Walt McCowen, who is one of two African Americans on the team, along with George Sims. Loyola encountered some rough games because of its black players and the contract of at least one opposing team from Louisiana  insisted that only white players take the field for their games.

Really.
