This 22 page newspaper has a banner headline on the front page: "HUNDREDS KILLED IN TEXAS BLAST THAT WRECKS MONSANTO PLANT" with subheads that include: "Death Toll Estimated At From 450 to 1200; More Than 1000 Hurt" with realted photo also on the front page. Nice for display.
Other news of the day throughout with loads of advertisements. Little wear around the margins, otherwise in good condition.
