    "FRIDAY" MAGAZINE - JAN. 3, 1941. As a refreshing departure from the war raging in Europe, the short-lived periodical, Friday, printed a feature on the retired Babe Ruth.  The sub-title, "Banned from Baseball," is a bit provocative, but it's a great article adorned with many photographs of the Babe in his New York apartment. The crux of the narrative is that Ruth aspired to manage at the Major League level, and why his hopes went unrequited.  This is, by its colossal dimensions (10 1/2" x 15 1/4"), an imposing publication with his photo portrait filling its expanse.  The spine is secured by three staples that firmly hold the 32 pages.  There's no evidence of a mailing label, and with only a few superficial creases, this rare and splendid magazine has survived in Excellent condition.
