Item # 663882

December 18, 1927

THE NEW YORK TIMES, December 18, 1927

* USS S-4 (SS-109) submarine sinking
* G.K. Chesterton on the influence of American economics
* Much on Charles Lindbergh with displayable images

The top of the front page has a four column headline: "SUBMARINE S-4 SINKS WITH 40 ABOARD IN DEEP WATER OFF PROVIDENCE; HIT BY DESTROYER, WHICH IS BEACHED", with subheads and related photos (see images). The lengthy 1st report coverage continues on page 2.
Page 20 has: "BRITAIN AMERICANIZED, CHESTERTON CONTENDS", which is an article on G.K. Chesterton in which he provides a rather scathing analysis of the impact of American economics on British society. Interesting reading.
The front page of Section 10 has: "THE LINDBERGH MASTER TOUCH IN FLYING", which includes a full-banner photo, a map, and a a lengthy article regarding his accomplishments to-date. See images for details.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 32 pages, irregular along the spine, otherwise nice.
