This 18 page newspaper has a one column headline on the front page: "Two Russian Dogs Whirl Through Space". This tells of the beginning of the longest space flight by dogs.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day throughout. Minor spine wear, otherwise in good condition.
wikipedia notes: Veterok and Ugolyok were launched on February 22, 1966 on board Cosmos 110, and spent 22 days in orbit before landing on March 16. This spaceflight of record-breaking duration was not surpassed by humans until Skylab 2 in June 1973 and still stands as the longest space flight by dogs.
