First report coverage on the suicide death of famous Mexican actress, Lupe Velez. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sport and advertisements of the day with much on World War II. Complete in 36 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. Very nice condition.
