* Tribute to Bill Pickett after his death
Page 17 has a nice tribute to Bill Picket, the famous Black "cowboy", Wild West Rodeo Show performer, and actor, given by Will Rogers. Bill had died two weeks prior from complications related to having been kicked in the head by a bronco, unfortunately, soon after he had retired. He was the originator of the stunt called "bulldogging".
Other news of the day is found throughout.
Complete in 34 pages, even toning, small binding holes down the left spine margin, overall good.
