Text from newspaper caption: The year 1938 was a year of war jitters and jitterbugs, world-shaking events such as a nation losing its identity and such trivia as the Lambeth Walk. In between there were many other happenings, which, though not great news events, held the attention of the public for a time and gave character to 1938. This page presents an array of such events. Starting at top left-hand corner and going across the page row by row are pictures which should refresh the money on the following stories: Peter Levine kidnaping murder-Barbara Hutton's break with her Danish Count-Hedy Lamarr's leap to film fame-Paul Wright's trial for murder-Andrea Luckenbach's marriage to butter-and-eggs salesman-all Europe buys gas masks-Greta Garbo's and Leopold Stokowski's Riviera interlude-vanishing of Samoan Clipper-Mayor Hague's rule over Jersey City-the up or down hair-do tempest - John Roosevelt's marriage - Woody Hockaday's antics - King and Queen of England visit Paris - James Cash kidnaping murder-Orson Welles Martian invasion scare-Prince Gustaf of Sweden visits America-Philip La Follette's third party-Governor O'Daniel's Texas campaign-Barbara Carrol, figure in strange murder tangle-Father Divine falls heir to Crum Elbow, estate next Roosevelt's-daughter born to Dutch princess.
