* Pryor Creek Oklahoma tornado disaster

The front page has one column headings: "OKLAHOMA STORM KILLS 100, HURTS 250", "Tornado Wrecks Armaments Town of Pryor--Two Pupils Are Dead in Minnesota" 1st report coverage on the famous Pryor Creek, Oklahoma tornado that leveled the town. 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. Very nice condition.
