Primary article on front of clipping ("Ein Spitzweg hing im Fundbüro") describes the efforts by the Schloss family to reconstitute their collection of 17th century Dutch paintings which was looted by the Nazis. Walter Horn has annotated the article in German and English, leaving comments pertaining to his work on the Schloss case. In top left: Ein O[...]schnitt meiner Korinthenkackerarbeit [?] gewidmet den berühmten Jäger nach dem grossen Rosinen [?]. In upper right: This article caused somebody to give me a tip which led to the recovery of 14 Schloss & Hitler ptgs in one week. One of these paintings is still in Rodeo, Calif. Will you help me getting it? It is a nice J.B. Huet, from France. On the right side, next to a reproduction of a painting by Jan Steen: Dies Bild fand ich Ostern in einer Garage versteckt.
