THE NEW YORK TIMES, New York, August 12, 1948 

* Babe Ruth near death

This 44 page newspaper has a two line, two column headline on the front page: "Babe Ruth Is Critically Ill; Inquiries Swamp Hospital" with photo showing youngsters gathering outside the hospital with caption: "Getting Latest Report On Their Idol"

Babe would die just a few days later. Other news of the day throughout. Good condition.
