THE NEW YORK TIMES, New York, October 30, 1922

* Benito Mussolini initial rise to power
* March on Rome
* Government take over


This 28 page newspaper has one column headlines on the front page:

* KING VICTOR BOWS TO FASCISTI POWER; CALLS MUSSOLINI
* National Chief Is Summoned to Rome to Head the New Cabinet
* Legions Mass Near Rome

and more. (see) Tells of Benito Mussolini taking control of Italy's government after the march on Rome.

Other news of the day. Light browning with some small tape mends at the top portion of the front page (see), otherwise good.

wikipedia notes: The March on Rome was a coup d'état by which Mussolini's National Fascist Party came to power in Italy and ousted Prime Minister Luigi Facta. The "march" took place in 1922 between 27-29 October. On 28 October King Victor Emmanuel III refused his support to Facta and handed over power to Mussolini. Mussolini was supported by the military, the business class, and the liberal right-wing.
