The top of page 21 has a one column heading: "NOBEL SCIENCE PRIZE WON BY DR. LANGMUIR" with subheads that include: "Pioneer In Radio Field" "Galsworthy Gets Prize" and more with photos of the two winners. (see) Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 40 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.
