Page 17 has one column headings: "11 KILLED,52 HURT IN ARSENAL BLAST" "Civilians Perform Heroic Feats to Save Fellow-Workers at Edgewood, Md., Station" "REMOVE BOMBS IN BUCKETS" and more. (see) First report coverage on the massive explosion at the Army arsenal in Edgewood, Maryland. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day with much on World War II. Complete in 28 pages, 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.
