This 32 page newspaper has one column headlines on page 3: "MOST-HIT CARRIER HAS SUNK 80 SHIPS" "650 Enemy Aircraft Destroyed by Planes and Guns of the Intrepid in 15 Months" 1st report coverage on the Japanese kamikaze attacks on the USS Intrepid. Reporting on many disasters such as this were kept from the public, sometimes for many months, until the family members of the killed were all notified, giving the reason for this late report. Still a first report.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day throughout with much on World War II. Rag edition in very nice condition.
