Gangland and Big Red Basketball

The cover of the February 15, 1929 issue of the Cornell Daily Sun reports both the Big Red's scheduled visit to Dartmouth in Hanover for February 16 as well as the violence from the day before, the famous Valentine's Day Massacre in Chicago, ordered by the notorious Al Capone. Below, the Monday, February 18 issue of the Sun.

Below, the March 17, 1934 issue of the Cornell Daily Sun recaps the Big Red's 1933-1934 basketball campaign and notes the team's second place (9-3) finish in the EIBL. On the same page, the Sun includes a photo of Adolph Hitler at a public appearance and reports on the shooting of one of gangster John Dillinger's aides.

Seriously. Do the people at the Sun know that it's okay to change the fonts from what we were using back in 2004?

today, the sun is filled with garbage like "Heroes and villians" and assorted crap. It also looks like some middle schooler designed the layout in powerpoint.

Soft Pretzel just tweeted that Malcolm Washington is no longer on the Penn roster. Fitzpatrick mentioned, in an interview before he left Penn, that Washington had expressed some dissatisfaction ... I guess he wasn't kidding.

Blogman,

Where are you getting these pictures of the newspapers articles and other old stuff?

Washington was probably only on the team because of Denzel
