American Legion fight to end Prohibition...

Item # 630488

January 18, 1931

THE NEW YORK TIMES, September 25, 1931

* Prohibition in the United States
* American Legion votes to end it
* Wets vs. Drys in Congress

The front page has a three column headline: "LEGION DEMANDS DRY LAW REFERENDUM BUT VOTES DOWN NEW BONUS PROPOSAL; HYDE STUDIES BEER AS AID TO FARMING" with many subheads. Lengthy text continues inside.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 52 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. Nice condition.
