Base Ball Returns -- June 27, 1920

Lakeland Iowa Evening Telegram, 04-June-1920
When this drug store ad mentions "Base Ball Returns," it refers to results of games.  The store may have subscribed to a wire service to get the scores and post them on a blackboard.

I am excited because baseball may finally return in July. The owners and the union have made a deal, despite the owners negotiating in bad faith. I am not happy that both leagues will use the designated hitter. Spring training may start on June 1.

Poinsettia ice cream sounds interesting.
