The Miami News, Florida, September 1, 1939
An Italian seer says the world will end Friday, Oct. 13. We sort of hope he’s wrong. We’ve grown quite accustomed to having the world around, and if it were to end we fear we’d greatly miss it – for a while, anyway.

In The Tribune of Feb. 26 we read that Mrs. Massie is “resting well” after “celebrating” her divorce. On Feb. 27 we are informed that members of the family of Gerald Peck, who was murdered, were “crushed by the news.” In today’s Tribune we read of New Yorks “worst winter,” of Lady Sibell’s “sincere public apology,” and of Dr. Wynekoop’s “confession,” all appearing on the first page. On the back page a line under an illustration tells of the walls of ice that almost “hide” the tall buildings. If the use of quotation marks in certain instances is intended to convey a hidden meaning, kindly explain your system.
