The top of the front page has a one column heading: "SCOPES IS INDICTED IN TENNESSEE FOR TEACHING EVOLUTION" with subheads that include: Grand Jury Acts After Judge Reads Genesis on the Creation of Man" "School Is Declared a Place to Develop Character, Not to Violate Law" and more. (see) This arrest was the prelude of one of the most famous trials in American history. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 44 pages, light toning, a little spine wear, generally nice.
