The top of the front page has a three column headline: "U. S. OKINAWA GUNS HOLD FIRE AS AMERICANS DIG OUT FOE IN LAST THREE TINY POCKETS" with subheads. (see) More on page 2 with related map. Coverage on the final day of the Battle of Okinawa with the occupation of United States military. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 36 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. Nice condition.
