The front page has a four column headline: "HOUSE VOTES 3.2 PER CENT BEER, 316-97; QUICK PASSAGE BY SENATE FORECAST". This is coverage of the impending end of prohibition in America. Lengthy text continues inside.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 36 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.
