This 40+ page newspaper has a nice seven column headline on the front page: "Another Wallenda Falls To Death in Circus Act" with subheads and small photo. This tells of the death of Rietta Wallenda, when she fell while performing on a sway pole in Omaha, Nebraska.

Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. A few small binding holes along spine, otherwise in good condition.
