The top of the front page has a 3 line, 4 column headline: "HOUSE VOTES DRY LAW REPEAL 289-121; STATES BEGIN MOVE FOR RATIFICATION" with subheads. (see)
Coverage on the impending end of prohibition with much more on pages 10 & 11.
Other news, sports and advertisements of day. Complete in 42 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.
