BACK IN TIME

JAN. 12, 1949

Mrs. W.D. Greene of Beman Street said last night that she still has not heard from her husband, who has been missing since last Tuesday.

He was last seen walking along the 900 block of Greene Street wearing a blue suit, white shirt, flowered tie and brown shoes. A 26-year-old veteran, he holds his head slightly to one side, and has the initials "WDG" are tattooed on his right forearm. She said her husband has suffered from headaches and memory lapses since an auto accident two months ago.

Mrs. Greene said she is anxious to hear from her husband now because their 16-month-old baby may have to go to the hospital any day now for an operation.
