The front page has a four column headline: "MASARYK KILLED, A SUICIDE, REDS SAY; U.N. SHELVES CZECH PLEA FOR INQUIRY; MARSHALL IS STIRRED BY WORLD CRISIS" with subheads and photo of Masaryk. (see) Lengthy coverage continues inside. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 56 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.
