Among the news on the front page of The Buffalo Evening News on April 30, 1914:
- U.S. soldiers in Veracruz "begin to experience hardships of tropical service," such as the "barren sand hills." Much of the news on the cover related to the occupation in Mexico.
- The photos at the top of the page depict the bride, groom and officiant from the wedding of the "head of the House of Astor," who gave his bride a "priceless rope of pearls" at their small ceremony.
- Helen Hase, a "woman resort-keeper" of 163 Elm St., was found guilty of abducting a girl. "This is the first conviction ever secured on a charge of abduction in connection with a disorderly house," the article reads, using a euphemism for a house of prostitution or other unlawful behavior. The girl in question was 17.
