The top of the front page is a two column heading: "Ford Acts to Aid Debt-Ridden Workers; Begins Rehabilitation of a Whole Village" (see) First report coverage on Henry Ford trying an experiment in Inkster, Michigan that would help Ford Motor Company employees get out of debt during the great depression.
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.
