The front page has one column headings that include: "DILLINGER ELUDES MAN-HUNT BY 5,000" "Federal Agents Believe Gang Has Split but Predict a Speedy Round-Up" "Five States Are Combed" and more. (see) Some more related headings on page 3 with photo. Lengthy text. Coverage on the famous John Dillinger shootout at the Little Bohemia Lodge in Wisconsin. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
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. Very nice condition.
