Title: City fathers appreciate Dodger fan music, too

Six men standing in first row at Ebbets Field, one (in Dodger uniform) playing trumpet, three holding fingers to ears, and one holding toy saxophone. Caption: "City Fathers Appreciate Dodger Fan Music, Too: Big climax of last night's 'Music Appreciation' shenanigans at Ebbets Field: Chuck Dressen, a good baseball manager, left, blows horn (not good but loud) and, extreme right, Walter F. O'Malley, Dodger president, prepares to do likewise. Suffering between them are Council President Joseph T. Sharkey, Borough President Cashmore and Mayor Impellitteri, all with hands to ears, and Bronx Borough President James J. Lyons, defiantly wearing Yankee uniform. (Yanks took humiliating drubbing last night, music-inspired Dodgers won.)"
