This is a 11th year production of the Readers Digest August 1932.
A list of articles inside are printed on the front cover.
Being a pocket watch collector who has a number of dollar watches with what is called "radiolite" or "luminous" dials, that have the numbers and hands painted with a paint containing radium, so they could be seen in the dark, the article on page 89-90 was one of great interest to me. It is titled "Radium, a Double-Edged Sword" (see photos 3 & 4 above). This is a condensed article from the July 1932 Popular Science Monthly discussing the hazards and long-lasting effects of medicines containing radium.
Thanks for looking,
