The top top of the front page has a one column heading: "BEER CONTROL FIXED. MULROONEY AT HEAD; LEGISLATURE ENDS" with subheads. (see) Much more on page 2. Lengthy text. Coverage on ending of prohibition.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 40 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.
