 The recall is all over the radio, though The Times has been ignoring it until this week.

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.
