Nice to have on the front page. Other news of the day including period advertising. This issue has light browning with little margin wear, but is otherwise in good condition.

wikipedia notes: Ruth Rowland Nichols (23 February 1901 - 25 September 1960) was an aviation pioneer. She was the only woman yet to hold simultaneous world records for speed, altitude, and distance for a female pilot.
