This is the front leaf only. The front page has the Supreme Court's landmark decision on Roe v. Wade. While some of the coverage was continued onto inside pages which are not present, finding issues with the Roe v. Wade decision are quite rare.
The 3 column, 3-line heading states: "Ruling Signals Change In Ohio author writer of the decision.
This front page also has the two-line full-banner heading: "LBJ's Body To Lie In State In Capitol; Procession Will Be Wednesday" with considerable coverage of the death of ex-President Lyndon B. Johnson.
The front leaf only, a page 2 archival mend affects the abortion article slightly (see photos), otherwise in good condition.
