* De Jure recognition of Israel
Although the State of Israel was formally created in May, 1948, it was not formally recognized by the United States until 8 months later, the 20th country to do so (the Soviet Union [Russia] was the first).
The top of the last column on the front page is headed: "U.S. GRANTS ISRAEL AND TRANS-JORDAN FULL RECOGNITION" with subheads: "De Jure Action on Both Nations Is Announced in Separate White House Statements" "Concern For Peace Seen "House Tables a Request for Information Regarding RAF Flight Over War Zone". The report takes the entire column and concludes on page 9. A very notable report in American-Israeli relations. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete with all 52 pages, very nice condition.
