The front page has a two column heading: "Organized Nazi Terrorism Goes On Secretly inVienna" with subhead. (see) Lengthy text continues inside.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 36 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 creasing along the 1st column, otherwise very nice condition.
