* re. The famous Doolittle raid of Japan

* Realization of Japanese executions
The front page has a nice banner headline: "TOKIO THREATENS TO EXECUTE ALL U. S. FLIERS FORCED DOWN IN RAIDS ON JAPAN" with subheads. (see) Nice for display. This was when it was first reported that the Japanese had executed some American airmen that were captured during the Doolittle raid.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 26 pages, a few small binding holes along the spine, generally nice.
