The top of the front page has a two column heading: "Amanullah Abdicates From Afghan Throne; Flees by Plane, Leaving Brother to Rule" First report coverage here. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Page 10 has a one column heading: "MRS. RUTH'S DEATH IS HELD NO MYSTERY" with subheads. (see)
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 60 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. Minor spine wear, nice condition.
