* Cochran, Georgia & more
* Tornadoes disaster
The top of page 3 has a one column heading: "TORNADOES IN SOUTH KILL 39, INJURE 200" with subheads that include: "Seventeen Die In Cochran" and more. (see) First report coverage on the tornado outbreak in Georgia and South Carolina in which the city of Cochran was hardest hit. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 52 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.
