The front page has a four column headline: "Mother of Dr. King Is Killed in Church; Atlanta Deacon Slain; Gunman Seized" with subhead and two related photos. Much more on page 20. Loads of text here. 1st report coverage on the killing of Alberta Williams King, mother of Martin Luther King Jr.

Other news, sports and advertisements of the day throughout. Complete in 60 pages, never bound, very minor margin wear, otherwise nice.
