THE NEW YORK TIMES, December 22, 1932
* U.S. Prohibition nearing a end ?
The front page has a three column headline: "HOUSE AUTHORIZES 3.2% BEER, 230 TO 165; ALL OF DRYS AMENDMENTS DEFEATED; SENATE GETS BILL TODAY, FATE IN DOUBT" with subheads. (see) Lengthy coverage, loads of text.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 38 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.
