* War-time prohibition takes effect
The top of the front page has a three column headline that announces: "NATION GOES DRY UNDER WARTIME ACT; SOME WILL SELL BEER AND LIGHT WINES, BUT PALMER REFUSES TO GIVE IMMUNITY" with subheads. (see) Lengthy text. First report coverage on wartime prohibition act taking effect.
Thirty-two pages, irregular along the spine with some wear, small piece torn away at bottom right corner with a little text loss, a little staining nice for display as such.
