Near the bottom of the front page has two column heading: "Jolson Secretly Weds Ruby Keeler, Actress" First report coverage on wedding of Al Jolson and Ruby Keeler.
The back page has a large advertisement for Vitaphone by Warner Bros. The ad shows different facial expressions of Al Jolson in blackface.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 40 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 few biding slits along the spine, nice condition.
