This dropcap is from a 1904 ad for Baker Iron Works e lead the nation in alcoholism, according to The Times' Harry Nelson. You can just call California "the intoxicated state." But 25.73 gallons of alcohol for every resident age 15 and older? Wow.

President Eisenhower will address the U.N. General Assembly with a plan for peace in the Middle East. Sources say Eisenhower is going to request a permanent U.N. peacekeeping force in the Mideast.

Meanwhile, 1,700 Marines leave Lebanon, but 13,000 Marines and Army troops remain, The Times says ... The mushroom cloud from the test of an atomic warhead over Johnston Island is visible more than 700 miles away in Hawaii ... And 31 juveniles are arrested on charges of curfew violations after officers raid a drag race set up at 5th Avenue and the Anaheim-Puente Road in San Dimas. The officers hoped to catch the racers in action, but were seen by lookouts, The Times says.

In sports, the Cubs beat the Dodgers, 9-3, at the Coliseum ... Defensive end Paul Miller is diagnosed with a slipped disc, ending his season with the Rams.  The Times' Cal Whorton says Miller may never play football again. In fact, Miller returned in 1960 to play for two years for the American Football League's Dallas Texans, who traded him to the New York Titans.
