I await future news but I'm thinking this will end up not being a big deal. Soldiers probably just have a case of the 'cocktail flu' after a night out on leave, no big deal some rest and a few aspirin won't solve.  ;)

GREASEWEED VALUABLE

  JUAREZ. Mexico. March 12. Greaseweed, which grows wild on the deserts of Northern Mexico, has been found to contain properties which make it valuable as a wartime drug, according to Major Gomez Tagle of the Juarez garrison, who is an expert chemist. Major Tagle has been conducting a series of experiments with the greaseweed and says he has discovered a substitute for iodoform which is contained in the plant.  It is especially valuable in medicine for treating wounds. A liniment for the relief of rheumatic pains has also been obtained from the desert plant, according to the military chemist.


HIS CABIN IS ROBBED

  Evangelos Haralambos, a Greek miner, who expects to leave on the next draft, reported to the police this morning that his cabin had been robbed during the night and $680 in postal deposit certificates taken from a bureau drawer.


MINGLED EMOTIONS IN THIS SCENARIO - A ROMANCE OF TWO CONTINENTS TO BE READ IN THIS STORY OF LOVE AND LOSS.

  An action in divorce that possesses rare heart interest because of the affection and faith of the defendant and the unusual features of it being a part of the romance of two continents, together with the added point of an illegal marriage, will come to trial before Judge Mark Averill in the Fifth judicial district court Thursday.  District Attorney H.H. Atkinson will represent the  plaintiff and Attorney Leo Harrington the defendant.

  Philip Gendal who, according to a story published years ago in the Los Angeles Times, is an admitted bigamist, came to Nevada and established a residence for the purpose of securing divorce from Celia Gendal, both Russians. She bore three children to him and two are alleged to have died of starvation when he deserted her and came to this coast to illicitly marry another woman with whom he had become infatuated and who also bore him a child.
 
  For years and years Mrs. Gendal toiled to support her remaining child and always felt that her husband would come back to her, unless he had been killed to obtain the $1700 of their community money with which he departed. When she heard of his being in Nevada and applying for a divorce, she borrowed the necessary funds from people of her nationality and hurried here to contest the case, asking only to have her husband back again, but to protect the legitimacy of the child born of the bigamous marriage, the application for divorce will also be hard pressed. At all events, no matter how the merits of the case may lie, whether the facts narrated above are correct in detail or not, the story is one that would provide a splendid scenario, for it is one of conflicting emotions and possessed of settings in far distant places.


NO GROUND GLASS IN THE LOGANBERRY JAR
 
  Tests were made last evening by M. A. Rex, United States food and drug inspector, of the substance found in a can of Teagarden loganberry jam, and it was pronounced by him to not be glass, but whether it was crystallized sugar or not, he did not state. His investigation may alleviate fear that any one, alien enemy or otherwise, has been tampering with the Teagarden products, which are put out under a pure food serial number and are renowned for their excellent quality.

"The Seri refer to desert broom as cascol caaco, and make a decoction by cooking the twigs. This tea is used to treat colds, sinus headache, and general sore achey ailments. The same tea is also used as a rub for sore muscles.[4] Studies done on plant extracts show that desert broom is rich in leutolin, a flavonoid that has demonstrated anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and cholesterol lowering capabilities. Desert broom also has quercetin, a proven antioxidant, and apigenin a chemical which binds to the same brain receptor sites that Valium does"

I will be interested on the outcome of the tragic multi-continental divorce proceeding!

Actor Dennis Patrick was born 100 years ago.  He worked in television mostly but did appear in the movies Joe, and The Secret of Nikola Tesla with Orson Welles.  He guest starred in television shows like Perry Mason, Dallas, Eight Is Enough, The Six Million Dollar Man, The Twilight Zone, The Jack Benny Show, Gunsmoke, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Wanted Dead or Alive, Wagon Train, Laramie, Dobie Gillis, The Fugitive, Lost in Space, The Big Valley, Ironside, Fantasy Island and Hawaii Five-O, just to mention a few.  He played several different characters in the afternoon soap opera Dark Shadows.

Dennis and his pet poodle Josh lost their lives when their Hollywood Hills home burned down.  Their ashes were scattered into the ocean, joining the ashes of Dennis' wife Barbara, who had died a couple of years earlier.

Ha, I was unaware of this show. Fits. There was a weird time in which Orson Welles did some odd programming. I recall a hippie friend of mine who INSISTED we all watch Orson's special on Nostradamus. He thought it was amazing and would make people watch it. Even though we all laughed and pointed out how Orson always couched his commentary with questions, not statements of fact. For example, "did the French prophet predict Hitler and WWII?" etc.
