On this day: Aug. 28, 1964

A former Pasco girl has become the 16th wife of a Las Vegas hotel operator she had been working for as a hotel clerk. The 18-year-old, mother of two, DeMerle Rankin, married Glynn Wolfe, 50, and is his 16th wife. Wolfe's 15 other wives were, like DeMerle, teenagers. The new Mrs. Wolfe is the former wife of David Rankin, Pasco, who is serving a 30-year term at Monroe Reformatory for carnal knowledge and jail escape.
