1 minute read

Like sportswriters choosing an All-America football team, news editors amuse themselves and their readers every year-end by picking the Ten Biggest stories. Last week Associated Press, United Press and International News Service all agreed on eight:

1) Arrest of Hauptmann (TIME, Oct. 1).

2) Assassination of Alexander and Barthou (TIME, Oct. 15 .

3) Hitler’s “blood purge” (TIME, July 9).

4) Extradition and trial of Insull (TIME, April 16 et seq.).

5) Morro Castle fire (TIME, Sept. 17 et seq.).

6) Killing of Dillinger (TIME, July 30).

7) Assassination of Dollfuss (TIME, Aug. 6).

8) San Francisco’s general strike (TIME, July 16, et seq.).
