The front page has one column headings that include: "PAUL BERN A SUICIDE; WED JEAN HARLOW" "Movie Executive Shoots Himself in Hollywood Home He Gave to Film Star" "Martial Rift Is Denied" and more. (see) First report coverage on the suicide of Paul Bern, husband of the famous movie actress, Jean Harlow. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. 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.
