Other news, sports and advertisements of the day with much on the Jack Sharley vs. Primo Carnera heavyweight boxing title fight. Complete in 38 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.
