Near the bottom of the front page is a two column heading: "Gandhi Realizes His Wish to Meet Chaplin; Comedian Kneels With Mahatma at Devotions" (see) First report coverage on Charlie Chaplin meeting Mahatma Gandhi in London, England.

Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 48 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.
