This also includes photos of Julius Rosenberg, Ethel Rosenberg and Morton Sobell. The fourth member of the conspiracy, David Greenglass (Ethel's brother) was scheduled to be sentenced the following day but was being recommended for leniency because he pleaded guilty an became the government's chief witness against his own sister and her husband.
Other news, including Korean war news, sports and advertisement of the day are within the issue.
