* Abdication to Portugal
The front page has one column headings: "HUMBERT DEPARTS 'TO SPARE ITALIANS'" "Proclamation Denounces Action of Government--King Will Join Family in Lisbon" with related photo. (see) Report continues on page 3 with smaller subheads. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 42 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.
