Comedienne Lucille Ball was being treated for dehydration at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after exposure to 100-degree-plus Palm Springs heat. The 73-year-old actress was in good condition and was expected to be released today, hospital spokesman Ron Wise said. Ball entered the hospital two days ago for tests after she became ill during a visit to the desert city. “She apparently forgot to drink enough liquids,” Wise said.
