The top of the front page has a two column heading: "Amanullah Abdicates From Afghan Throne; Flees by Plane, Leaving Brother to Rule" First report coverage here. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Page 10 has a one column heading: "MRS. RUTH'S DEATH IS HELD NO MYSTERY" with subheads. (see)
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 60 pages, light toning at the margins, a little spine wear, generally nice.
