This 14 page newspaper has a nice banner headline on the front page: "EAKER RACES EAST, RECORD IN GRASP" with subheads (see photos). Nice to have this report on the front page and very unusual for such a nice headline here as well. Nice for display.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Light browning with little margin wear and chipping, little irregular at the spine, otherwise good.
