MISSING DENTURES led to battles both inside and outside the
court Friday. Miss Carol Drowdy, 19, testified that she had jilted
Michael Kasparian, 38, of Providence, R.I. She charged that he
had stolen her dentures to get even with her. Kasparian denied
the charge and was found innocent, but his troubles were not yet
over. After the verdict, police said Mrs. Loretta Robin, Miss
Drowdy’s sister walked up and hit him in the face. The two
women then waited outside the courtroom, but Kasparian escaped
out a side door. About a half hour later, the women caught up

off her spiked heel shoe and attacked him. She was charged with
assault and battery.

THE CLASSIC NEWS story occurred in San Bernardino, Calif., if
an angry wife’s charge is true. Mrs. Joe Cardova accused her
husband of biting their one-eyed Pekingese dog because it bit
him first. No complaint was filed, but officer Elio Gonzales advised
the husband to seek medical treatment for a cut above his mouth.

abiding Deborah got a social

DEBORAH NOBREGA mail-order service. According
to the newspaper Moscow Pravda, Mrs. Nedezhda Sosnovskaya
cleared more than $1,400 with the scheme. She picked her clientele
from divorce notices in Soviet newspapers. She wrote the wives,
promising to “bring peace and harmony to married life and make
their husbands love them.”’ Mrs. Sosnovskaya's secret cure: ‘Take
an ordinary piece of paper, fold it and place it near the bed. Set
an alarm clock for midnight and when it rings, tear off a strip
of the paper. If this fails to bring results, repeat the operation
on following nights.”

ACTRESS Rita LaRoy’s ad offering a silver blue mink stole for
sale brought quick results, Los Angeles police reported. Someone
responded while she was not at home and stole the stole.

EIGHTY-TWO-YEAR-OLD Mrs, Anna Hunt was talking to a sales
clerk in a Philadelphia gift shop when an armed bandit appeared
and announced, “This is a holdup!’’ “Holdup, nothing,” cried Mrs.
Hunt, as she began striking the would-be robber, He fled to a
waiting taxicab.
