The top of the front page has a three column headline: "39 KILLED, 48 HURT IN LACKAWANNA WRECK; CLOUDBURST WASHED SAND OVER TRACKS; VICTIMS ON EXCURSION BOUND TO GERMANY" with subheads. Lengthy 1st report coverage continues on page 2 with 2 related photos and list of the dead and injured.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 44 pages, a little irregular along the spine, generally very nice.
