The paragraph under title "Day to Celebrate the Restoration of the Melchizedek Priesthood" states that May 16 was a Saturday and May 29 was also a Saturday. This is a typo or an error. The 30th would have been a Saturday, not the 29th

I'll take a closer read at this post later.
There is an interesting article in the May 1979 Ensign that discusses this as well
