October 15, 1933
THE NEW YORK TIMES, New York, NY, October 15, 1933 This 80+ page newspaper has a five column headline on the front page: "GERMANY QUITS LEAGUE AND ARMS PARLEY; HITLER SCORES TREATY, DEMANDS EQUALITY; CALLS ELECTION NOV. 12 TO OBTAIN APPROVAL" with many subheads. (see) This would be the beginning of Hitler's ruthlessness.
Also one column headlines on page 23: "ROB POLICE STATION OF ITS WEAPONS" and "Three Men Lock Up Sergeant at Auburn, Ind., as They Pick Out Arms".
Allow not mentioned, this was the work of John Dillinger and his gang who raided this police station to reload their weaponry for bank robberies.
Also on the same page is a report on Machine Gun Kelly starting his prison sentence. (see photos for headlines)
