One column headings on pages 1 & 3 include: "LIQUOR VIOLATORS FACE QUICK ARREST, MULROONEY WARNS" "Prayer and Vigilance to Aid Self -Control After Repeal Is Urged by Churches" "SPEED ON LAST LAP OF LIQUOR CONTROL", "SUBURBS AWAITING LIQUOR LICENSES" "HOBOKEN LEGALIZES ITS BARS TOMORROW" and more. (see) Coverage on the impending end of prohibition in America the following day. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 38 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. Very nice condition.
