The top of the front page has a two column heading: "Cyprus Mobs Fight for Union With Greece; Britain Rushes Troops by Ships and Planes" (see) First report coverage on the riot & demonstration on the Island of Cyprus for the union with Greece. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Page 9 has a one column heading: "CAPONE HAS HEARING ON SENTENCE TODAY" with subheads. (see)
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 48 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.
