[Written to Alice in Acton, Indiana. Return addressed: Richard, Ward 11, U.S.N.H., St. Albans, L.I., N.Y. Postmarked at Jamaica, N.Y., on 25 Feb 1946 at 1 P.M.]
This envelope contains three newspaper clippings.
The first clipping contains a photograph of the Purdue basketball team, circa 1946, with the team members’ names listed below.
Probably not intended as an insert, just included incidentally, is a complete crossword puzzle from the February 1946 newspaper. It is ridiculously hard. It was on the reverse side of the Purdue basketball team photo:
An article mentioning a petition requesting the appointment of Mel Taube, acting coach of the Purdue Universiry basketball team, to head coach. The article also mentions other details from the annual Lions’ Club banquet honoring the Purdue basketball team.
A photo and brief sidebar article about Ralph Vaughn, Frankfort (Indiana) High School graduate and member of the Iowa Seahawks basketball team.
