The sport's section (page 17) has a banner headline: "National League Championship Clinched by Cubs When They Divide Twin Bill" with subheads that include: "CUBS BREAK EVEN AND CLINCH PENNANT" "40,000 See Race Decided" "New Champions Exult Over Success..." and more with photo of Kiki Cuyler. First report coverage on the 1932 Chicago Cubs winning the National League pennant. They would face the Yankees in the World Series to where they lost. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news of the day throughout including a front page report on Mahatma Gandhi starting one of his famous hunger strikes.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 44 pages, this is the rare rag edition that was produced on very high quality newsprint, with a high percentage of cotton & linen content, allowing the issues to remain very white & sturdy into the present. Given the subscription cost, libraries & institutions rather than individuals were the primary subscribers of these high-quality editions. Nice condition.
