THE NEW YORK TIMES, April 16, 1929 

* George Herman Babe Ruth 
* Claire Merritt Hodgson 
* Engagement

Page 31 has a two column heading: "Babe Ruth to Marry Mrs. Claire Hodgson; He and Former Actress Get License Here" (see) Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication, especially this topic.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 60 pages, this is the rare rag edition that was produced on very high quality newsprint, with a high percentage of cotton & linen content, allowing the issues to remain very white & sturdy into the present. Given the subscription cost, libraries & institutions rather than individuals were the primary subscribers of these high-quality editions. Minor creasing, a little spine wear, generally in nice condition.
