NEW YORK TIMES, July 7, 1925
* Scopes Monkey Trial
* Dayton, Tennessee
* William Jennings Bryan
* Clarence Darrow
The top of a front page column reports on the historic & controversial Scopes "monkey" trial with: "SCOPES FAILS TO GET FEDERAL INJUNCTION; STATE TRIAL FRIDAY" and subheads: "Judge Gore Rules Tennessee Officers Are Acting in the Only Way they Are Authorized" "Two Petitions Presented" "Teacher Charges Violation of Liberty--Parent Asserts Right to Educate His Children" "Darrow Says He Fears the State Court May Limit the Case to Whether Law Was Violated".
The detailed report takes nearly a full column and continues on page 20.
Complete in 44 pages, a bit irregular at the sine from disbinding, generally nice condition.
