NEW YORK WORD-TELEGRAM, November 14, 1942
* Eddie Rickenbacker found alive

The front page has a nice banner headline: "NAVY SAVES RICKENBACKER" with subheads and photo. (see) More on page 3. Early, same day first report coverage on the rescue of Captain Eddie Rickenbacker after he was adrift at sea for 24 days.
Complete in 20 pages, light toning at the margins, small library stamp within the masthead, small binding holes along the spine, generally nice.
