This 16 page newspaper has a three column headline on the front page: "MORE THAN HUNDRED LIVES ARE LOST IN TORNADOES THAT HIT PARTS OF KANSAS AND ILLINOIS" with subheads (see photos). Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Light browning with little margin wear and tear, otherwise good. Also a small library label slightly affects mentioned headline.
