The top of the front page has a one column heading: "LIQUOR RUSHED HERE BY SHIP AND TRAIN; RUM ROW IS ACTIVE" with subheads. (see) Much more on page 34 with related photo. Coverage on the impending ratification of the 21st Amendment to the United States Constitution, repealing the 18th Amendment.
Other news of the day. Complete 1st section only with all 40 pages, rag edition, some spine wear with piece torn away along here with some unrelated text loss, otherwise very nice.
