The top of the front page features a banner headline: "BAER KNOCKS OUT CARNERA IN 11TH, WINS TITLE" with a nice photo captioned: "Max Baer". This was the first meeting of these two boxing greats.
Also on the ftpg. is an ominous one column report: "Mussolini and Hitler Discuss World Issues" with subheads (see).
This is the complete 22 page issue, small binding slits at the blank margin, an archival repair near the center not affecting any readability, and a library stamp in the upper left corner.
