Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 56 pages, minor margin wear, nice condition.

Note: While the major historic events in Amelia Earhart's life can be read about through multiple venues (books, newspapers, magazines, etc.), many of the more obscure events can only be found within a handful (at most) of daily newspapers of her day.
