Barney’s 9, Rockefeller 2

Nelson Rockefeller’s campaign against Arthur Goldberg to keep his New York Governorship was supported by a women’s softball team bearing his name. JB talked the governor into having his team play a Barney’s women’s team and Barney’s would report the results in full-page times ad. The JB assembled team, surprisingly, won, but despite no Rockefeller Wins! headline, the ad reported the truth.
