These issues are in pretty good shape. These are great for those who want a complete, original, average condition issue to read and enjoy. They may have some light to moderate flaws like small tears, spots, library stamps etc. but would make a great piece of history for the budget minded to mark any occasion.
Some of the contents in this issue
Cute full page Sanforized fabrics ad with "The Thinker" art by Gregori. Another handsome full page color Plymouth ad with blue car and art by H. Miller. Very fun two page artwork by Charles Addams which shows the carnage on the radio every Sunday night (all the different radio mystery shows and such). LOVELY full page color Cannon Percale sheets ad with woman in Spanish style Mardi Gras costume. The funeral of Mahatma Gandhi / Ghandi, photos Margaret Bourke-White & Henri Cartier-Bresson. OK, this is a Net photo - two page spread showing an ice fishing contest on White Bear Lake near St. Paul, Minnesota. The Olympics in St. Moritz, Switzerland, including photos of ice skater Dick Button, Bobsled team driver Francis Tyler and his US team. Colorful two page Lustre-creme shampoo ad with "on the Campus" art by John Falter. A story that in retrospect is rather crazy, incendiary bomb designed to be carried by a bat to burn Japanese cities (huge bomb on poor little bat), also shows catching thousands of bats at Carlsbad CAverns, New Mexico - a few got away and proved the theory of bat-warfare by burning down an airfield, Operation X-ray. MIchael L. Benedum and his big oil strike in Upton county, Texas, near Midland, Alford No. 1 well. Pretty two page color Chrysler ad with cowboy art by John Clymer. Theater - Strange Bedfellows with Joan Tetzel and John Archer. Architect Henry Hebbeln and his conversion of a home near Sherman, Connecticut. Runner Gil Dodds, new indoor mile record.
