Item # 642304
January 28, 1936
THE NEW YORK TIMES, January 28, 1936
* Bonus Act becomes law (1st report)
* Adjusted Compensation Payment Act
* World War I - WWI military veterans
The top of the front page has a three column headline: "BONUS BILL BECOMES LAW; REPASSED IN SENATE, 76-19; PAYMENT WILL BE SPEEDED" with subheads. (see) Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
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. Nice condition.
