During a recent visit to the former Long Lines microwave station at
Randallstown, MD, I found a related item: a bottle of Bell System Digestive
Tablets, "For relief of stomach upset, heartburn, or mild diarrhea". The
ingredients are Kaolin 2 gr., Magnesium Trisilicate 2.5 gr., Aluminum
Hydroxide Gel 4 gr., flavored with Oil Peppermint.
