The whole page format and style is taken directly from Ripley's Believe It of Not, but no one by this name seems to have drawn for them.
That aside, it's a sort of treasure trove of 1930s sports trivia. In Auto Racing, we learn that only five men ever drove a car over 200 miles per hour. Their names aren't given, but below that is this statement:
"Speed demons" may come and go -- but such names as De Palma, Mulford, "Jimmie" Murphy, De Paola, Burman, George Robertson, Louis Chevrolet, Eddie Hearne, Armour, Joe Dawson, "Caley" Bragg, Tetzlaff, and Milton will live wherever "benzine jockeys" are gathered together.Yes, indeed they will. One, anyway.
The book repeats the fictitious story of baseball, and includes such popular sports as cockfighting, dicing, falconry, and fox-hunting. But there are some interesting historical artifacts, such as a "Field and Track" blurb on Jesse Owens, "Ohio State colored athlete" who broke three world records and tied a fourth at a Big Ten track meet -- this was a year before the Berlin Olympics.
