"Jack Robinson, Gridster, to Monarchs"

This is an article from the March 9, 1945 edition of the Kansas City Call announcing Jackie Robinson would be joining the Monarchs for the upcoming season. Jackie was enough of a sports celebrity thanks to his time at UCLA that the news apparently created a buzz. Call sports editor Wille Bea Harmon calls it "the news of the week."
