THE CASE OF THE MISSING DIMPLE: When Euphemia Kelleher went to the John H. Woodbury Dermatological Institute (at right is a 1988 newspaper ad about Woodbury) in New York a while back, she had some things in mind that she wanted done to her face to improve her looks. Today's Washington Post listed as the "facial defects" eyebrow wrinkles, two side nose wrinkles and a mole on the upper lip. Kelleher wanted to keep a NATURAL DIMPLE on her right cheek. However, the treatment allegedly led to some unfortunate facial features -- an "angry" boil between the eyes, a swollen cheek and a white scar on the lip. In addition, she lost that NATURAL DIMPLE on her right cheek. Sue sued the institute. She won the initial ruling in the state's Supreme Court and recently won the appeal. Now, the institute must pay $1,058. The Woodbury institute will face numerous problems in the coming years.
KAISER WANTS HIS SON TO GO TO HARVARD: Germany's Kaiser Wilhelm (right) hopes to send one of his sons, Prince Oscar Charles to Harvard. Evidently, the kaiser wants one of his sons to grow up near one of President Roosevelt's sons (one of who is already at Harvard). According to today's Washington Post, Oscar can fend for himself:
He can use his fists too, a rare accomplishment in Germany where fighting in this way is considered only fit for Americans, Englishmen and ruffians.
But some concern lurks. The Post says,
It remains to be seen how the young prince, brought up in the strict etiquette and formality of the German court, will be able to adapt himself to the democratic spirit of American college life.
