The front page has a five column headline: "3D ARMY RAMS SIEGFRIED LINE" with subhead: "Patton Strikes Hard to Drive Enemy From Rich Saar Basin"
Also a two column photo on page 29 with heading: "OHIO STATE FOOTBALL STAR HONORED" (see) Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day with much more on World War II. 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.
