CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUINE, Nov. 8, 1939
* Ham and Eggs movement
* Pension scheme losses
The front page has a nice banner headline: "BEAT 'HAM AND EGGS" PENSION" with subhead. (see) Nice for display. The "ham and eggs" movement in 1938 was a misguided attempt to provide elderly Californians with a weekly pension (see hyperlink for more).
Complete with all 42 pages, this is the "rag edition" printed on very high quality newsprint meant for institutional holdings. In great condition as such, a few small binding holes at the spine.
