She was 75. The Caesar salad dressing gained popularity in the 1940s, as the family distributed their bottled recipe around the country. By 1953, the International Society of Epicures, a group of professional chefs based in Paris, called the Caesar salad "the greatest recipe to originate from the Americas in 50 years." Cardini started in the salad dressing business at age 10 helping to botde her father's recipe, which the family sold from their station wagon at Los Angeles' Farmers Market after moving from San Diego. Cardini's dressing used olive oil, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, egg, garlic, croutons and Parmesan. It had been developed at her father's Caesar's Hotel, a Tijuana restaurant popular with Hollywood celebrities such as Clark Gable and Jean Harlow that Cardini's father owned in the 1920s. After her father's death in 1956, Rosa Maria Cardini took control of the business, Caesar Cardini Foods Inc., based in Culver City. She patented the Caesar recipe and 17 others. J.R.

Suspects arrested in Iraq Continued from page 1 ceremony lost seven to 10 family members in the slaughter. Powell stood before long rows of simple headstones where the remains of more than 1,000 victims of the conquered regime lie. "I can't tell you that Saddam Hussein was a murderous tyrant — you know that. What I can tell you is that what happened here in 1988 is never going to happen again," Powell said to enthusiastic cheers. On Sunday, insurgents killed a U.S. soldier and wounded three outside the troubled city of Fallu- jah, a day after angry protesters fired weapons and called for violence against the American occupation to protest one of the most serious friendly fire-incidents of the Iraq war. The U.S. administrator for Iraq on Sunday commented publicly on the accidental killing of eight Iraqi policemen by U.S. forces who mistook them for guerrillas. He suggested victims' families might be compensated. " . •"The very regrettable incident in Fallujah is still under investigation by our military. We have expressed regrets for it publicly," L. Paul Bremer said at a news conference with Powell I"When we have reached conclusions about how the incident came about, we'll take appropriate steps. In the past we have paid families ... where we felt it was appropriate, but this incident is still under investigation." On Sunday, Powell began his first visit to Iraq since the U.S.- led ouster of Saddam Hussein. He said he was encouraged by progress toward self-rule. He stood fast against growing international pressure to quickly turn responsibility for running the country back to Iraqis. "The worst thing that could happen is for us to push this process too quickly before the capacity for governance is there and the basis for legitimacy is there and see it fail," Powell said. Fallujah, 30 miles west of Baghdad, has again become an especially dangerous place for the occupying forces after the friendly fire incident near the Jordanian Hospital, just west of the city. Before Bremer issued his state-' ment, the American military had apologized, but many in Fallujah rejected the overture and vowed to continue fighting U.S. forces. Relations between people in Fallujah and U.S. forces have been extremely tense since shortly after the city was captured in April.
