"'Please, please me' rings out from the Beatle Bar across the road, better known as the 'liason' point for local girls, their mothers and, in some instances, their grandmothers. Prostitution is legal in Costa Rica, and with the average job paying $100 per month, a night out with a tourist can make a big difference.

"Peter Steadman, the 'City's Best Known Terrier Lost,' Mrs. W. J. Hosfelt Jr. nee Susan Mullen and more fun doppelgangers from the newspaper pages of U. S. history.
