NEW YORK TIMES, June 15, 1943 

* West Virginia Board of Education v. Barnette
* United States Supreme Court decision
* Pledge of Allegiance - flag salute unconstitutional
* Johovah's Witnesses & public schools

The front page has a one column heading: "SUPREME COURT ENDS COMPULSION OF FLAG SALUTE" with subheads.
This historic ruling stated that reciting the Pledge of Allegiance was not mandatory in schools, driven by a challenge by the Jehovah's Witnesses.
Complete in 42 pages, this is the "rag edition" printed on high quality newsprint meant for institutional holdings. In great condition.
