THE NEW YORK TIMES, September 11, 1925
* PN-9 No. 1 seaplane rescue
* Commander John Rodgers
The top of the front page has a nice five column headline: "FIVE MISSING HAWAII FLIERS ARE FOUND ALIVE BY THE SUBMARINES R-4, 15 MILES EAST OF KAUAI; DRIFTED 500 MILES IN NINE DAYS ON THE OPEN SEA" with subheads and photo of the crew including Rodgers. (see) Lengthy first report coverage continues on page 2 with another related photo and map. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Light toning and minor wear at the margins, irregular along the spine, generally in good condition.
