* Adolph Hitler escapes assassination plot
* Operation Valkyrie - Loyal aides stay put
The top of the front page has a six column headline: "HITLER APPEALS TO ARMY TO STAY LOYAL" with subheads and related photo. (see) Lengthy text.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day with much more on World War II. Complete in 38 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. Very nice condition.
