The top of the front page has a one column heading: "EMERGENCY POWER OF STATES UPHELD BY HIGHEST COURT" with subheads. (see) Lengthy first report text continues inside.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. 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. A little spine wear, nice condition.
wikipedia notes: Home Building & Loan Association v. Blaisdell was a decision of the United States Supreme Court holding that Minnesota's suspension of creditors' remedies was not in violation of the United States Constitution. Blaisdell was decided during the depth of the Great Depression and has been criticized by modern conservative and libertarian commentators.
