Ralston is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Pikesville, an area in northwest Baltimore County. The Bromley Atlas of 1898 shows only Ralston and Sudbrook Park, the first of many communities to grow in Pikesville, according to the 1982 book, A Pictorial History of Pikesville by Beryl Frank. The book notes that the name Ralston has "gradually been forgotten" - a fact borne out by many who had to consult their maps to locate the boundaries of the neighborhood. Ralston is bordered by busy Reisterstown Road on the east, Sudbrook Road on the north and west and Slade Avenue on the south.

The caskets were a mirror image of each other, the brothers inside them dressed in black suits and fedoras and the floral arrangements atop them done in the Rastafarian colors of red, yellow, green. Outside the church, matching light-colored hearses idled side by side. Ralston "Roy" Holder and Everton "Cliffy" Holder, Jamaica natives and East Baltimore auto shop owners, were shot to death hours apart on the same day last week. Yesterday was their double funeral. The two ran the Eveready Towing & Repair shop in the 3300 block of E. Fayette St. They had a reputation for generosity, giving steep discounts to customers who were paying out of pocket and letting a homeless employee sleep at the shop for a time.

NATIONAL PREOCCUPATION with sex in the military has now reached the point where a general who was first in line to be the next chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff has become unacceptable. Many officers may sympathize with Gen. Joseph W. Ralston, as does Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen. But realities in Washington, where Senate confirmation is required, probably dictate that his career is over. It is time for Mr. Cohen to accept the fact that the nation's top military officer cannot be subject to derision or derogation that will undermine his position.

VEVEY, Switzerland - Nestle SA agreed yesterday to buy Ralston Purina Co. for $11.2 billion in cash and debt, becoming the world's biggest pet-food maker by adding Purina Dog Chow and Meow Mix to its Alpo and Friskies brands. Nestle will pay $33.50 a share, 36 percent more than Ralston's $24.63 closing price Friday, and will assume about $1.2 billion of Ralston's debt. The Swiss company expects to recoup about $900 million by selling Ralston's stakes in several companies, including DuPont Co. Nestle Chief Executive Officer Peter Brabeck held off making acquisitions last year as European and U.S. rivals spent more than $140 billion buying companies such as Nabisco Holdings Corp.

WASHINGTON -- Air Force Gen. Joseph W. Ralston withdrew from consideration as the nation's top military officer yesterday, having concluded that he could not win Senate confirmation because of an adulterous affair he had 13 years ago while separated from his wife.Ralston's decision followed a tumultuous week in which he became a flash point for a debate on adultery in the military and whether a double standard excuses the highest-ranking male officers while punishing female or lower-ranking officers.

Both brothers loved to fix cars. They labored side by side at their garage in East Baltimore. Both came to the United States from Jamaica looking for a better life. Both were forgiving, almost to a fault. "They worked real well together. They would tell jokes about each other," said Samuel Murdock, a relative. "They were close." But five days before Christmas, Ralston and Everton R. Holder were killed. First, the older brother, Ralston, 52, was fatally shot at 10 a.m. in the parking lot of his Northeast Baltimore apartment complex as his 3-year-old son sat in a truck.
