The front page has a five column headline: "TRUMAN IS SELECTED TO PRESIDE AS BIG THREE CONFERENCE OPENS; FLEET STILL HAMMERS AT HONSHU" with subheads and related photo. Much more inside.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day with much more on World War II. Complete in 42 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.
